ድሕሪ ናይ ሸሞንተ ዓመት ማእሰርቲ ን ሞት ዝተፈርዱ መንእሰያት – Nirbhaya murder
On Tuesday, the death warrant of four men involved in the 2012 gang rape-murder case was issued. The court has fixed Jan 22, the date of hanging. It is an excellent development for those who fought for justice. But there are some questions? Why the judicial process implements the decision so late? Will this conviction bring any change in society? What are the factors responsible for such inhuman acts?
Murder and sexual violence
The 2012 gang rape and murder of a young woman in the capital city, New Delhi, caused a condemning and protests all over India. It was a blow on Indian society. It brought the sexual violence epidemics to world focus.
It is a fact that there have been a lot of such cases. Sexual harassment and murder are spreading in Indian society. Their socio-political factors are responsible for this inhumane practice. Sex is the wish of every boy in a hotter community, but it should be in limits.
She was a physiotherapy student, and her age was 23 years. She was a young girl with dreams in her eyes and ambition to excel in her career. Some vagabonds spoiled this flower and broke it. India media dubbed her as Nirbhaya, which means fearless in English. She was coming to her home with a male friend when six men lured them into a bus.
As no one was in sight, the gang raped the girls, beat the young man with a metal bar and inflicted internal injuries to Nirbhaya. After this heinous act, hey dumped they naked on the roadside and the woman died two days after the rape.
Though there was relatively a quick prosecution an in India where such cases are dealt with slowly, after issuance of black warrants, it is hoped that there may be some reforms and a social strive for betterment.
