Our taxi driver at Delhi kept pestering us to share the wifi password given to us at the hotel I wondered why he couldn’t wait till AAP came in, was he a case of IIN ….the Idea ad I thought as he quickly showed off his flashy smart phone that was perhaps much smarter than mine. I am only trying to prove that today internet info right or wrong has become a rage amongst all classes of Indians. In this context the way the BBC has released the Nirbhaya video inspite of our Government banning the documentary, it is time our people who are enthusiastically sharing this video stopped and introspected this documentary called ‘India’s Daughter’ that the BBC, NDTV and their counterpart bloggers are falsely claiming around that this video is just an awareness against Rape in the society.
I watched the video today the screen flashed in bold saying “SHARE THIS VIDEO IF YOU WANT TO SPREAD AWARENESS AGAINST RAPE IN THE SOCIETY’.
The video starts off in a typical Slumdog Millionaire style with explicit footage of our dirty slums, gutters, half naked starved clueless malnourished faces, all that Oscar winning poverty traits that would perhaps force you to give them some concession for raping! And why not it is truth after all isn’t it? Poor people have been living like this in India for decades now ever since the British Queen started wearing stolen gems and jewellery from India installing their stooges to run India for more than half a century.
But remember they flash a message “SHARE THIS VIDEO IF YOU WANT TO SPREAD AWARENESS AGAINST RAPE IN THE SOCIETY’.
The remorseless rapist argues better than his lawyer who goes on to say that THEY DID IT TO TEACH A LESSON TO THE GIRL WHO WAS ROAMING AT AN UNHOLY HOUR LATE IN THE NIGHT AT 9PM WITH A BOY, WOMEN ARE SUPPOSED TO MANAGE HOUSEHOLD AND NOT GO OUT TO BARS AND DISCOS WEARING WRONG CLOTHES TO WRONG PLACES. He even says that ‘THALI EK HAATH SE NAHI BAJTHI’ (it takes two hands to clap) meaning WOMEN ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR GETTING RAPED.
After this the documentary goes on to show the rapists’ destitute hungry and poor parents weeping as if the Government is a monster and not the rapist who had to helplessly proceed raping that girl which is vehemently backed by the reservation quota lawyer who vows that he will burn his own daughter if she were to step out with a boy after 6pm.
Picture Abi Baaki Hai
The camera zooms on another rapist’s house whose destitute wife and kid are shown for all to sympathise and understand that hey the December deadline for hanging is fast approaching and the stage has to be set for some human rights’ activism to defer the hanging, to defer the fear and get more women raped.
The camera is back on the rapists, one of them the fruit seller slightly smiles feeling like a hero with all that special attention by a white TV crew while the parents of Jyothi Singh/Nirbhaya weep miserably recollecting the agony of their daughter who are now left flinching in grief.
I waited patiently for the message and awareness the documentary claimed to spread against this epidemic called rape that is alarmingly raising in India from the last 10years and is only raging with each media coverage, I waited to understand how it could be ridden off and looked forward if they would tell us how we could better our boys but then came these punch lines from the rapist again ____“ WOMEN SHOULD QUIETLY GET RAPED INSTEAD OF RESISTING ELSE IT WILL INSTIGATE A SODOMY, HANGING US IS GOING TO BE MORE DANGEROUS FOR GIRLS, HENCEFORTH NOBODY WOULD LEAVE THE GIRL, EARLIER THEY RAPED AND LEFT THE GIRL THINKING THAT THE GIRL WILL NOT TELL ANYONE BUT WITH ALL THIS CRIMINALITY NOBODY WILL LEAVE THEM IN FUTURE LIKE WE DID, THEY WILL KILL THEM, DEATH……. He proclaims like a crusader to control women.
But wait this is what the activists are also lecturing all along but in a more subtle and sophisticated way.
So where is the anti-rape message?
Of course the elite educationists, lawyers, SC judge, psychiatrists and others in that video opine in accented English that education is the only way to resolve this gender disparity which is the root cause of rapes which only the Bikini judge Shoba de can decode not the security guard who might watch this video and whistle at you.
And how can you achieve it? By broadcasting it treacherously to the large illiterate masses who may not know to read or write or comprehend what these elites are saying but will surely know how to click on obscenity.
This video insensitively only captures the rapists’ sadistic view that can trigger gullible misled people to sympathise and look up to this rapist in the video that would kindle more sick minds to commit the same heinous crimes to teach women a lesson oh yes to teach women a lesson.
If it had anything to do with scientific research they could simply choose to publish a thesis of the same and educate rehab homes and schools why circulate cunningly?
If they ever did a research on how to hang rapists and broadcasted it rape will be eradicated like smallpox.
Religion and Culture were and will always be like Gandhiji’s walking sticks to the colonial minds and all their brown stooges who will rip it every night for all their experiments but the least we as Indians could do is stop sharing this insensitive video and show BBC their place.
