Whenever, in the morning, I unfold the newspaper, I see plenty of news where a girl becomes the victim of sexual harassment, honor killing, acid attack, and other atrocities. Violence against women has increased exponentially in the last decade, and honestly, molestation has become an everyday story now.
Recently, an Aunty from Gurgaon took the internet by storm when she slut shamed a girl for wearing short clothes. She said, “Women like her provoke rapes.” Okay! Agree. If a girl wears shorts, she’s provoking someone. But don’t the women, who wear Burqa, get raped? Don’t they get molested? And it’s not just her, even some noted politicians, many times, have given such statements blaming victims for the crime.
Here’s another story that has jolted us, and will certainly make you question, Where are we heading?
This girl from Gwalior went to Vrindavan to visit Banke-Bihari Mandir with her family. Since it was Akshaya Tritiya (A Hindu festival), the temple was extremely crowded. The family saw the crowd and still went inside thinking “Ab aa gaye hain to Darshan kar hi lete hain.”
As the family went inside, they got disbanded. It was so thronged that one couldn’t even see the other family member. Since the motive was to seek the blessings, they waited in the disorganized queue.
And when the crowd moved forward, the girl felt someone grabbing her ass. She looked back and pushed the crowd. Within a few minutes, someone pushed her hair. She somehow managed to escape. The harassment took place inside the Mandir.
“suddenly one hand comes to my waist and somebody opened my top from the right side and grabbed my right breast. I was frozen and I couldn’t turn to”
Now to those people who always blame the victim.
A. She wasn’t partying.
B. She wasn’t wearing shorts.
C. She wasn’t alone.
Why did she still get molested?
It’s so awful to see such a disgusting crime taking place inside the temple. It’s a place where one worships, it’s the place where one goes for peace. But creeps don’t spare such sacred places.
