The only reason, I watched that BBC documentary “India’s Daughter”on the horrific rape and killing of young medical student Jyoti Singh because the movie came out yesterday and was banned in India.
Shame on “India”. What a society! What a backward culture! It’s not only the uneducated and criminals, but watching these educated Indians talk about women in their Indian culture is sickening, no respect whatsoever.
India has a population of 1.2 billion. A rape occurs every 20 minutes. What a sick society!
India’s Daughter is about Jyoti Singh, 23, who just completed her medical exams to become a doctor. She spent nights working in a call center from 8pm – 4am, slept for 3 hours, then studied. Her ambition was to build and run a hospital in her family’s village. “A girl can do anything,” she would say.
But that evening, in Delhi, she decided to go to the cinema to see The Life of Pi with a male friend. At 8.30pm, on the way home, the pair got into an off-duty charter bus. Jyoti was brutally raped by five men and a 17-year-old, then thrown on to the street. She died after 13 days.
Infant girls have been murdered by their own families in India throughout the centuries. Now, ultrasounds and gender-selective abortion has introduced a new method of perpetuating this ancient killing machine.
Baby girls are considered a curse and a financial burden, especially to poor, rural families. Women and girls have less value than men and boys in India. Thus, not surprisingly, mistreatment and even violence against women and girls in a society that value men more than women.
The problem has to do with the second-class status of females in India.That is the sad reality.
That medical student Jyoti Singh is no second class citizen. Jyoti Singh doesn’t deserve to get raped. What a waste of a beautiful soul, what a waste of a human life.
That movie should be an education tool in India not getting banned by the Indian government. Growing up as a woman in India is hard as it is, she doesn’t deserve to get sexually harassed and raped too.
