When I read this story this morning, my heart hurt. I just can’t understand this way of thinking – unimaginable and so terribly sad….I have no other words.
One of the men, Mukesh Singh, convicted of gang raping a woman on a bus in Delhi in 2012 has blamed his victim for the fatal attack, saying “girls are far more responsible for rape” than men. Speaking from prison where he is awaiting his execution he goes on to say:
“A decent girl won’t roam around at nine o’clock at night,” he said.
“A girl is far more responsible for rape than a boy. Boys and girls are not equal.
“Housework and housekeeping is for girls, not roaming in discos and bars at night doing wrong things, wearing wrong clothes.
“About 20 per cent of girls are good.”
“When being raped, she shouldn’t fight back.
“She should just be silent and allow the rape. Then they’d have dropped her off after doing her and only hit the boy.”
Police said the victim, known as “Jyoti”, meaning “flame”, was found with multiple wounds and had also been raped with metal bars, causing catastrophic internal injuries.
