My take on Delhi Gang Rape

23 December 2012 / By Zil Shah

It has been around a week to an incidence of the Gang Rape on the medical student in Delhi. 

Here, I am writing my own thoughts on this. 

Many of you may find this offensive or abnormal or you will disagree and stop following my blog but if you felt so, you are already not following me. 

So many people have talked, wrote, fought and protested in various places. Asked for the Capital punishment and fast track courts and lot more. I think in reverse manner. According to me, this kind of incidence should not take place in our society. We need to make this place (our nation and the world) a better place to leave. This can’t be done only by making strict laws or giving capital punishments.

Right now what people are talking and fighting about is –

  • What others need to do,
  • How should the Police work,
  • What should be the law,
  • What kind of court should be there to solve these type of cases

They think this will reduce the occurrences of such incidents, it may be. But, I doubt that and followings are the reasons:

  • Blaming Government: Flaws are into the system not in a 1 part of the system. Blaming only one person or department won’t help and you cannot change the whole system without being into the system.
  • Make a strict law: The nation like India where the population is a big strength as well as the weakness, making only strong/strict laws will not help. We already have enough laws; do we follow them?
  • Tough Police: Even we have a very bad ratio of a policeman to the number of citizens. They can’t cover all the parts or track everyone. They need some assistance from society.
  • Capital Punishment: A death sentence will not help. According to me, that guy should live a life of hell. He should get such punishment like cut his hand/leg/any other body part and let him live that life. This makes a stronger statement.
  • Fast-track courts: Courts will come into the picture only after the rape or similar harassment. Nothing can justify this kind of anti-social activities. 

What about the victim – a girl/lady who has suffered this? Can she live a respectful life after this? Will our society give her a chance for new beginning? Make such law which can ensure this. Make provisions where she can start her new life.

I believe in any form of civilization, there are bad people and good people. It is upon the good people whether they want these bad people to restrict or let them do the bad things around them.

If we, ourselves, make good governance, help people or atleast, be the responsible towards the society. Only then these kinds of activities will be minimized. Only because the good people are not active, as the way they should, these bad people get the chance to make such anti-social activities. What me, you, everyone needs to do is, be more responsible and take care of our surroundings. Update police/authorities about the anti-social activities happening around you, that is our duty.

I know, we all want to be at a safer side and don’t want to get involved in any trouble.

I heard a girl on TV, who said that in Noida while coming back to home at late night, she found that a guy was harassing a young girl but she did not involve as she felt that might get into trouble.     

If you find something wrong happening in the car standing nearby then I am not saying that you be a hero or detective or Spy and check by yourself, but at least you can update the authorities about it. They will take care of it.

An Awaken citizen that what we all need to be. Be responsible, know your duty and do it. The world will be a nicer place to live.”

I agree with you dear sir. Your thoughts are very agreeable to me. I would like to add some humble stuff from my primitive thoughts as well.It is strange how not even a single person came up with a positive side of the entire episode. Everyone seeking death penalty immediately. Please take

some time to think about the entire
episode and reach your conclusions.
Killing them immediately will serve no purpose, the whole nation and the victims kith and kin are bereaved and experiencing a sense of loss. Now coming to the positive side of things, let us take it this way, the perpetrators have been responsible for the loss of a life.
But we can definitely use them for giving life to 18 people at least. Why not take an eye out of each and perform a transplant for some one who is completely blind. It will give the person a life to look forward to. Why not take a kidney
and transplant to some needy person who cannot easily afford to get a donor. How about one liver for a person who is in need of a liver. They should be sentenced for rigorous and imprisonment for at least 3 years and during this period subject to some hard labour as well. In the meanwhile, there should be a contract signed with some of the worlds leading pharmaceutical companies to test dangerous drugs on these convicts. This contract will bring in enough revenue to cover the cost of flying the victim for treatment in singapore and her friends medical expenses as he got hurt trying to protect her. These is my humble opinion bro.

Please propagate this idea and let us give some people a new lease of life for the loss of one.

Dear Friend,

If you feel whatever you said in the above comment is fair and justice; then why don’t you take a stand for it?

I noticed that you have not shared your name, that shows how you feel about your stand.
