When Our Prime Minister came forward with the Slogan 'Beti Bachaovo ', nobody ever would have thought in their wildest dreams that it is going to be a warning to all the indian citizens, that they shoul protect the women of our country, no difference whether it is an adult or it is a small school going angel or a small crawling baby. Now the Victim of that warning is a 8 year old girl, named Asifa who, while grazing her horses in a meadow in northern India in January, followed a man into the forest. Days later, Asifa Bano’s small, lifeless body was recovered there. Police say that Asifa was given sedatives and, for three days, raped several times by different men. To ensure she was dead, Asifa’s killers hit her twice on the head with a stone, according to charging documents filed by police in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.Asifa's strangled body was eventually found.
Asifa’s case is the latest example of India’s religious intolerance :.As some denounce sexual violence and demand justice for Asifa’s family, others demand justice for the men accused. The eight men accused in connection to the rape and murder are Hindu. Asifa was a Muslim nomad, part of the Bakarwal tribe. Asifa’s father, Mohammad Yusuf Pujwala, told that he believes his daughter was killed by the Hindu men for the sole purpose of driving her people away. Police say she was killed in a Hindu temple, and that the temple’s custodian plotted her death as a way to torment the Bakarwals. Yes..The 8 year old girl had to sacrifice her life for the religious wrath as well as the sexual desire of some Human -formed Human Beasts, not wild animals as even the wild animals kill their pray to satisfy their hunger. But this time these human formed ones crossed every limit which made them undeserved of calling Humans Beings.
Feelings of suspicion and animosity between the two communities run so deep that when Asifa didn’t return from the meadow, her parents instantly feared she’d encountered danger. And when the Bakarwal nomads retrieved Asifa’s body for her burial, some goons appeared at the graveyard asking not to bury her there as the goons feared that if Asifa was buried on their land, it would forever belong to Muslims. Police have arrested eight men, including a retired government official, four police officers and a juvenile in connection with Asifa's death. Sanji Ram, a 60-year-old retired government officer, allegedly planned the crime with the help of police officers Surender Verma, Anand Dutta, Tilak Raj and Mr Khajuria.Mr Ram's son, Vishal, his nephew, a juvenile, and his friend, Parvesh Kumar, are also accused over the rape and murder. Investigators allege that Mr Khajuria and the other police officers - some of whom lodged the complaint and accompanied the family in the search - washed Asifa's bloodied and mud-spattered clothes before sending them to a forensic lab. The incident is not only a shame but is going to be an eye -opener for the whole Indian Youth out there,that they would begin to think, to what extend our Humanity is lossing its value.Should we be like these Inhuman creatures? Should our generations allowed to watch these incidents in their future ? Or is it the Time To Take Action ?
