It is unusual these days examining the media without encountering a story dealing with a woman not only being raped but also being brutally beaten if not murdered. Two months ago a young Indian girl and her boyfriend were assaulted, she was beaten, raped and then murdered. Two days ago a Swiss couple on a vacation to India decided to camp in a remote part of the country. Six men appeared and proceeded to beat the couple and then each farmer proceeded to rape the woman. Fortunately, in this case no one wound up being murdered.
A spokesperson for the Madya Pradesh police made clear what those in authority believe concerning the act of rape. He blamed them for camping in wrong place. “No one stops there. Why did they choose that place?” Valid questions but what do they have with the act of rape? Sorry, sir, rapists rape both in desolate places or in cities.
