could it be any more shameful???



just read this article in "THE NEW YORK TIMES"

NEW DELHI — A young woman in West Bengal was gang-raped this week on the order of a village council, to punish her for planning to marry a man from outside the village, according to the Indian police.

Couple was ordered to pay fines totaling 27,000 rupees, or about $442, Mr. Yadav said in a telephone interview. Mr. Sheikh paid his portion and was allowed to leave, but when the young woman’s family refused to pay, Mr. Mardi ordered villagers “to enjoy her,” said a police officer who spoke on condition that he not be named.
She was then raped repeatedly in Mr. Mardi’s mud-and-thatch hut.

Local politicians sometimes react angrily to the publicity given to rape cases, which they believe reflect badly on their administration. The chief minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee, lashed out at rape victims last year, saying in one case that a victim was lying, even though the police found evidence supporting the victim’s account.

Times of India -
Even as the administration claimed it had acted promptly, more gruesome details emerged. Villagers told TOI on Thursday that after the kangaroo court ordered her to be sexually savaged, the woman was placed on a raised bamboo platform so that the gang-rape was viewed by the entire village, children included.

I know women are being treated in worst of the ways in so many other countries, but i can't believe it could happen anywhere else... 
the place where Women were treated as Goddess,(yes,  "were" because even respecting them is just so  fake these days)
an elder in village... a village where all the people are like family... someone telling guys-to go, enjoy her( it is still written in a decent way i guess )

the elderly person may be mentally retarded or something, but what about all the other people? They did that???

And the reason- they found her in some objectionable situation...how would they define her situation after the incident???

First of all its her personal matter, let her family decide.
May be they were really into each other... but no... why bother?
They are to decide na?

They say the girl must not marry outside the community... which must have started just to ensure her safety. Marrying her to someone you know, so that she didn't find it that difficult to adjust to her new home.
But who cares?

Being in Love with some guy, from other community is polluting the minds of youngsters.
So what would they call this decision???
