Hindu savages in India raped two girls, ages 15 and 14, and both cousins, and hung them on a mango tree.
The girls were part the lowest stage of the Hindu caste system, called Dalits, or “untouchables”, and the superintendent of police said, “We now believe the girls were assaulted for their low caste.”
India has one of the highest rates of rape in the world, with statistics showing that there is a rape in India every 22 minutes. As one report states:
Villagers found the girls’ bodies hanging from the tree Wednesday morning, hours after they disappeared from fields near their home in Katra village in Uttar Pradesh state, police Superintendent Atul Saxena said. The girls, who were 14 and 15, had gone into the fields because there was no toilet in their home.
Hundreds of angry villagers spent the rest of Wednesday in silent protest over alleged police inaction in the case. Indian TV channels showed video of the villagers sitting under the girls’ bodies as they swung in the wind, preventing authorities from taking them down from the tree until the suspects were arrested.
Police arrested the three men later in the day and were searching for four more suspects.
Autopsies confirmed the girls had been gang-raped and strangled before being hung, Saxena said.
The villagers accused the chief of the local police station of ignoring a complaint by the girls’ father Tuesday night that the girls were missing. The station chief has since been suspended.
The amount of rape in India is just as high in Pakistan and Afghanistan, as one report states:
In India, rampant, public sexual harassment of girls and women (known as “eve-teasing”), rapes, and gang-rapes are as pandemic as they are in Pakistan and Afghanistan. The Indian police are corrupt, the rape victims hesitant about ruining their own and their families’ reputations and marriage eligibility. Rape victims do not want to be raped again by the police, many of whom are easy to bribe and who may share the same view of women-as-man’s-natural-prey that rapists believe in.
Some people think that its only Muslims doing this type of crime, but the truth is is that Hinduism is just as violent as Islam, and commits the same sort of inhumanities. We rescue girls in Pakistan from this sort of cruelty.
