Asifa’s Gang-Rape & Murder Case: Stark Realities & Vital Lessons!

By Mohamed Harees –

Lukman Harees

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere’- Martin Luther King, Jr.

As the fast-tracked trial of eight men accused in the brutal gang rape and murder of an eight-year-old Muslim girl in Jammu and Kashmir began, outrage over sexual crimes against women and girls, spread yet again not just across India, but also far beyond. The body of Asifa Bano was found in Kathua on January 17 this year and a four-month police investigation found she was kidnapped, starved, drugged, and raped repeatedly inside a Hindu temple. The police say the attack was planned and carried out to try and drive her Bakarwal Muslim nomadic community out of the area. India’s Supreme Court instructed that the Jammu and Kashmir state government provide security for Asifa’s family under threat, as well as for the family’s brave lawyer, Deepika Rajawat, who allegedly faced rape and death threats herself. Apparently exposing the tense communal divide in India between the majority Hindu and minority Muslim population, the case has thus become another battleground in India’s religious wars, with Hindu nationalists turning it into a rallying cry — not calling for justice for Asifa, but rushing to the defence of the accused.

As IMF chief Christine Lagarde  remarked, ‘’what has happened (in India) is just revolting. I would hope that the Indian authorities, starting with Prime Minister Modi pay more attention because it is needed for the women of India’. Like any controversial event, the hashtag #JusticeforAsifa became a widespread movement of rage across the country and internationally. Sexual harassment, assault, and rape are ubiquitous problems of India, and action is once again pressured by the eyes of an enraged international community. However sexual abuse by those in authority and close to them ,has become commonplace not just in India, even beyond, in US, UK and Sri Lanka for example. Rape culture is thus but one reflection of the utter moral degradation not just in Maha Bharat which boasts of a great civilization and a glorious past, but across the so-called civilized world too.  Some realities ,observations and lessons are therefore worth taking note, specially in the context of  how politicians, the lawyers, the Police as well as the public acted in the case of Asifa’s gruesome rape/murder case which are relevant to all even beyond the borders of India.

Initially, the political establishment’s sheer indifference and apathy in the matter until recently, was disgusting to say the least. Their selective silence showed their partiality and their inability to stand up for justice for all. The reason why, when Asifa’s case indeed shocked the nation and sparked a political storm, blaming fingers were pointing out at the BJP over its’ partial attitude towards the heinous crime. It was two BJP ministers Lal Singh and Chander Prakash in the State, who took part in a rally in support of the Kathua gang-rape accused. BJP MP and spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi however in a tongue in the cheek statement said “What kind of action should we take if someone comes and says that they were misled?” “Is it a crime to get misled?” she asked, adding that the people get misled and this can happen with anyone. The two BJP ministers were misled by a few people. When you are in public life, people come to you with their version… So, the lesson to them is not to believe one side or the other and let the law take its course”. It was eventually public pressure which led to the two ministers submitting their resignation. The government’s action has been barely adequate when crimes against women have been on the rise despite tough laws enacted in 2013 in the wake of the horrific gang Nirbhaya rape case, involving a New Delhi woman Jyoti Singh Pandey and her subsequent death in 2012. 

BJP was deploying both silence and noise as part of a strategy. The BJP’s cold indifference to the victim and her family until latter stages , was both sinister and disturbing. Modi in any case, remains reluctant to condemn communal or gender related violence, especially when the victims are Muslims. Even when deriding Muslims has become an everyday affair, Modi rarely pulls up his offending colleagues. Virtually every day, some BJP legislator or another makes offensive remarks about minorities. ‘The Wire’ Indian online journal has this to say. ‘Modi has a way with words but chooses not to speak when it is politically inconvenient to do so. At times of national tragedy – and who can deny the rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl by individuals connected to the police is both a tragedy and a disgrace – people expect their leaders to speak out in the name of the nation. Why is Modi reluctant to speak? What awful political calculus is dictating his silence?’. After a long silence, facing flak and political heat over the recent incidents of crimes against women and children, when PM Modi finally spoke out and condemned the crime, it was too late and too little. The long silence of the BJP political establishment to do condemn the gruesome act has been deafening.

Then there was the lawyers’ obstruction in this gang-rape case, which should be taken cognisance of , which sadly reflects the deterioration of the overall moral standards in the legal profession. Shame on a profession which is duty bound to uphold the rule of law free of partisan politics and religious differences!. In contrast, lawyers from the  Jammu and Kashmir Bar Council, Jammu High Court Bar Association, and Kathua district bar association stooped low and obstructed advocates representing the victims’ family in the courts. Jammu High Court Bar Association also passed a resolution to protest and not to attend the court  and lawyers took to the streets shouting slogans and trying to block the road outside the court where the charge sheets have been filed, obstructing Police from the filing of charge sheet in the court as well. The Police team was also heckled by the lawyers and prevented from submitting the charge sheet before the Chief Judicial Magistrate court in Kathua. This tantamount to impeding the process of law which affects the delivery of justice” and Supreme Court observed “Obstruction of process of law and delivery of justice, and that too by lawyers, cannot be condoned and is unethical. Access to justice cannot be impeded by lawyers”.

Of course, there are always angels among Satans. It was the victim family’s lawyer Deepika Rajawat, an Advocate in Jammu and Kashmir High Court and also Chairperson of Voice For Rights, an NGO working in the field of human rights, who was lauded by many for her undeterred fight for justice in the case despite several threats from the Jammu Bar Association, while some right wing peoples were even threatening her to kill and rape. She also served a legal notice upon Zee News, allegedly for broadcasting a false news report tarnishing her image. She has become an internet sensation with her hell-bent attitude in fighting for what’s right- a hero who has defied all threats and abuses, and embarked on an arduous journey to provide justice to the eight year old Asifa Bano. Many tweets and posts echoed that ‘Deepika may be fighting the case alone but the whole nation is standing with her’. In a statement, she boldly thundered ‘Justice is blind to caste, community and religion. I have full faith in the judiciary of this country, and I am sure that justice will be done. I am not deterred by the fake and false propaganda spread against me and I will continue to do my professional duty without fear or favour’. She indeed is a role model and an inspiration to all those lone voices who wants to bring justice to the vulnerable against the pressure exerted by the mighty and the powerful in their professions. 

With regard to Police action , there were mixed views. At the initial stages, with no signs of Police moving to trace Asifa’s whereabouts , on January 12th the family filed a police complaint, in which her father Yusuf Pujwala recalls ‘the Police were unhelpful’. He even recalled that one police officer suggested that she had ran off to “elope” with a boy. As time progressed, the tribe became more and more frustrated at the lack of law enforcement support; so staged protests in condemnation of ignorance. This finally forced two police officers to be assigned to the case.  It is said that Sanji Ram, a retired government officer, allegedly planned the kidnapping and rape along with the help of police officers Surender Verma, Anand Dutta, Tilak Raj and Deepak Khajuria, all of whom are Hindu. Khajuria was one of the officers who had been assigned to the case when she had first disappeared. Among those subsequently arrested were four police officers, including Khajuria as well who wanted to rape the 8-year old one more time before she was killed-a sick rapist indeed!. Further, sub-inspector Anand Dutta and head constable Tilak Raj were also accused of trying to scuttle the probe by not collecting vital evidence and washed the girl’s dress to help the accused.

However, it was also to the credit of the State Police that the case was properly investigated and accused brought to Justice ultimately. Several prominent members of BJP have been pushing to have the case taken out of the hands of the state police, arguing that the Central Bureau of Investigation would be a better, more neutral agency to handle it. Many suspect this was an attempt to win leniency for the accused, noting that the bureau is an arm of the central government, which the Bharatiya Janata Party controls. However, the Directorate Police stood their ground, and its’ Head said ‘we work as police officers, we don’t work as Hindus, Muslims, Christians and Sikhs. All my officers, I can vouch for them. They work as professional police officers’. The 15-page charge sheet filed by their Crime Branch in the Chief Judicial Magistrate’s court revealed that the brutal crime was an attempt to remove the minority nomadic community from the area. Police officials said that they have physical evidence and DNA tests linking the defendants to Asifa’s death. They also say they have interviewed more than 130 witnesses, who “unequivocally corroborated the facts that emerged.’’

Besides, like lawyer Deepika Rajawat who rose like a star to bring Justice to Asifa, it is also important to cite the case of Shwetambri Sharma, the only female member of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) of Crime Branch of the Jammu and Kashmir Police that investigated the rape and murder of Asifa.  She too is an inspiration to Police officers across the world. It is relevant to quote her, taken from her interview to a newspaper. “As most of the accused were Brahmins, they over-emphasised their surnames. They particularly tried to influence me and communicated through different means that we belonged to one religion and one caste and I must not hold them guilty of the rape and murder of a Muslim girl. I told them that as an officer of the J&K Police, I had no religion and my only religion was my police uniform. “When all such tactics failed, their families and sympathisers resorted to blackmailing and intimidation through whatever means at hand. They carried lathis, shouted slogans, organised rallies under the tricolour and blocked our roads to different villages and finally the court. But with perseverance and patience we stood our ground to carry out our job with total determination, commitment and professionalism”. 

There was admirably public outrage too, which rose above narrow religious prejudices. A group of former civil servants also issued a strongly worded open letter to PM Modi, holding him responsible “more than anyone else” for the “terrifying state of affairs” in the country. The letter asked Modi to check India’s “free fall into anarchy” by taking tough action against the alleged perpetrators of the Kathua and Unnao rape cases and the perpetrators of other hate crimes across the country. Incidentally, Kuldeep Singh Sengar, 50, from the ruling BJP allegedly raped the girl last year in Unnao district. But her case was registered only after she tried to kill herself recently in front of the chief minister’s home.Thousands of Indians have also taken to the streets to join nationwide protests against continuing sexual assaults of women and girls. There were many condemnations in social media under the meme; ‘Not in our Name’.However ,several people have asked why the horrific fatal gang-rape of eight-year-old Asifa in Kathua in January hasn’t seen even a fraction of public anger in Jammu that was seen in the case of Nirbhaya in Delhi in December 2012. According to analysts, the simple answer is vote-bank politics. Supporting Asifa or, to be more factual, opposing her killers could be seen as being anti-Hindu, something that neither the BJP nor the Congress seems to want at this juncture. It was therefore apparent that the ongoing stir, which started out as apolitical, is drawing support from all the parties that want to attract Hindu votes.

Many analysts observe that at the heart of the ongoing agitation in Jammu is the mistrust cultivated for decades by the politicians of two culturally distinct regions. The seeds of hatred are sown so deep that it has almost created an unbridgeable gap between the two regions. Asifa fell prey to a conspiracy hatched for months by Sanji Ram, the custodian of the temple ,with the political elements; in this horrifying story, a place of worship was used for the heinous crime. If one pays attention to the demands of the protesters one will see it’s a dangerous show of majoritarianism and absolute contempt for law. For days, no one, not even the Jammu-based media, reported the story in Rasana village. It was only after two state BJP ministers addressed the protesters waving tricolor in support of the accused surfaced in social media that the media in Srinagar woke up to the story. There were forces inimical to peace among the protesters who want to start an agitation on the backs of the peace loving people of Jammu, and make it a Hindu versus Muslim issue.

Politics should never interfere with atrocities that enact such human brutality and cruelty on any innocent human being. The case of Asifa Bano is one of many that have not surfaced the international spectrum of news, but nevertheless they are there, calling for action in the protection of all human beings, faced with the inhumane crimes of sexual assault and abuse. The rape is a crime committed by maniacs and those involved, regardless of their religion, should not be spared. New laws alone however would not arrest such crimes and ensuring that they are implemented is another challenge,. Besides, the mind-set of men also needed to change. There is also the need to introspect on “what kind of a society we are developing into.

In the streets of London, Mumbai, Washington or Sri Lanka, the recent outpouring of stories from women using #MeToo and its many iterations has showed the uniformity of the problem — irrespective of country and culture. In 2017, the world has made one thing clear: Sexual harassment is everywhere. Since the allegations surfaced many high profile names have used social media to highlight the problem of sexual assault, some also detailing the harassment they’ve endured. Although both genders suffer abuse “there’s a specific misogynistic component to rape culture. But, what can we do to fight the rape culture and to empower a victim to come forward and speak out about her sexual assault? It is important that public pressure is kept up to encourage victims to stand up to the bullies who promote the rape culture. Social media has been playing a useful role in this regard. There’s a burden from society too, upon people who speak out. Overall, to completely get rid of a culture in which rape happens, we have to change the root cause of why this happens in the first place: a lack of respect for human dignity. Question arises in everyone’s mind: Humanity! Where Art thou?

      Maybe no one will deal with Sri Lanka too when they get to know that one girl was abused by a group of singhala people somewhere, your brain needs to be analyzed to see how you make these connections that no one sees. What does ECTA has to do with this?

      The Hindutva the Hindian equivalent of the Sinhala/Buddhist have been actively enforcing Hindutva fascism in India. I suspect the Hindutva model is the Hindian version of Sinhala/Buddhist fascism.

      The Nobel Laureate and a public intellectual Amartya Sen and his fellow prominent intellectuals warned the rise of Hindutva fascist activism some 15 to 20 years ago.

      Francisco Franco Bahamonde of Spain needed larger dictatorship Germany and Italy for his own fascism. Dr Mahinda definitely needs Hindian Hindutva for his own brand of Mahinda Chintana fascism. If you want to live in a stable Sinhala/Buddhist fascist state please make amend with the head of Hindutva.

        Dear Native,
        But Dr Mahinda never wanted an ETCA.
        Also my Elders tell me those Brahamins hate Buddhists so much that they are the ones who chased Buddha to Srilanka,China.Japan Tthailand and Burma
        And Cambodia.

          Those modayas who writes here thinks Brahmin hug them saying our own kind. The truth is Brahmin and other higher caste in India consider Buddhist as low caste. This was told to me by one Mehta who is a Buddhist long ago in Bombay. In Delhi in the Buddhist mission and temple, the Sinhalese cook told me the same thing. He was about 60 hears married to Indian dalit woman. May be he is dead now. Recently I saw in the newspaper a Sinhalese of high position in Sri Lanka was not allowed in side a Hindu temple. What do you think if a Buddhist priest had gone there? Definitely he will be chased away instead of politely telling that.

          “But Dr Mahinda never wanted an ETCA.”

          Probably he knew there is nothing in it for him.
          Did he oppose building a bridge between India and this island across Palk Strait? If he did perhaps he wanted larger share than you Tamil Nadu cousins from a large project..

          “Also my Elders tell me those Brahamins hate Buddhists so much that they are the ones who chased Buddha to Srilanka,China.Japan Tthailand and Burma

    the rape of underage girls should be condemned by all. Whether it’s in the context of a violent kidnapping and torture, or it’s through the sanction of religious marriage of minors.

    I hope all muslims agree that rape is rape, and sex with a girl under the legal age of individual conent is rape everywhere.

      sinhalese buddhist:
      Cannabis is legal in Colombia and Spain for all uses, but it is illegal in Sri Lanka. In Sudan Marriageable Age is Puberty. In Mali and Niger Marriageable Age is 15 – So it all depends on country’s law. Sri Lankan law provisions Muslim girls to get married at 12 through MMDA. Section 363 of the Penal Code in 1995 says sexual intercourse with a girl below the age of 16 is a criminal offense, however this provision exempts married Muslim girls between 12 and 16 – If you say it a Rape, you’re not abiding by the country’s law – National issue or Muslim issue to have 2 different sets of rules? You should blame the law makers or those taking advantage of while being within the context of law?

      Abolish MMDA and 100% of so-said rapes related to underage marriage will be sorted out. And how are we going to reduce ever increasing so-said rapes of under-aged but not through MMDA? FYI: Colombo University says that sex among under-aged in SL is increasing and an island wide study conducted among 3000 students finds that 30% of girls engage in sex.

        STUPID LEX LUTHER: IT is your politicians need money to spedn. SO, they send the married women overseas. their children are raped by their relatives because no one to tach them good or bad. Unmarried women go middle east. theyare asked to take WANDA PETHI. Think what that is. It is men and mulims take a precedence in treating women and as thrash. Even Mohommad married a second wife beore the puberty. So, it is their religion.

          It is your government who send married and unmarried women overseas. It is your folk who rapes their daughters or niece after few shot of kasippu since why wife is abroad. It is your women who go without disclosing their pregnancy so agents have to take this decision since they were losing if the woman is deported. It is your folk who treat your women as thrash. Why are so much worried about what Muhammed. Are you a ponnaiya or anybody you worship is a ponniah (having a lifeless penis)?

      This is the explanation of Sinhalese Buddhist modaya like the BJB Hindu modya. Wait a minute but marriages of Hindu girls 11-12 years old after puberty is rampant in India. May be these modayas because following 100% their master’s law it is rape.

      SB,. Indisns however hardcore nationalists they are, they never accept rape except few ultranationslists justifying that. That’s why majority from Kashmir to kanyakumari condemned the heinous crime which forced government t enact ordinance of death penalty. I am sure had it been similar events in srilanka it would have been washed out and majority of you sbs would silently stay as passed by . The reason why your society is polarized on all possible factors and witnessed civil wars your folks never learn example nutty Jim comments as here.

        Good to hear from you.
        There is no point in denying the current state of safety and security for female members of the society including children. You must acknowledge the fact that India is a haven for rapists.

        I don’t think men respect women in India.
        The argument Southern Indians come up is that the situation is worst in the North. Whether North South East West if safety for women and children is not guaranteed in one corner of the country it means the entire country is rotten.

        Indians are no different to some tribes Pakistan especially under Hindutva.
        Since you are a scientist can’t you discover/design scanning machines that can detect/identify rapist cells/gene in men’s head or body?

        We also need such machines in this island with other features.

      Jim softy,

      “this is used as a political isse because it happend among Hindus” – True, like the thick gravy of Muslims looked wande pethi?

      I guess as a Sri Lankan, you can’t blame Saudi Arabia for these reasons:

      1: What is the link between this post and Saudi Arabia? Author has a Muslim name?
      2: Saudi Arabia is the host country for over 6 million Sri Lankan workers. That is the largest number among other countries
      3: Having known how bad they treat women, you continue to send Sri Lankan women to work there. Make your voice heard by first stop sending Sri Lankan women saying you did so as they treat badly.
      4: Sri Lankan Muslim girl was not killed, she was punished. If it was unfair punishment, blame her country, her embassy and politicians – There are instances European leaders have saved their citizens from death raw. Is that a Kangaroo court? Yes, of course. but it does the purpose of its existence – punishing criminals.

          Maybe that is why lots of cousins in Kurunagala used to marry each other.

          Or why Kandian laws allowed several brothers to marry the same woman.

          Or why kings had anthappura that included people from same families.

          Or why villagers always wanted sons and not daughters.

          Incest isn’t illegal in all countries. It’s only a problem if people have children together or have sex before psychological maturity.

          please learn to spell, learn form correct sentences, learn that different cultures have different values all equally stupid but need respect, and above all learn proper history and not fairy tales.

          Jim softy the idiot, incest is a word used for father or mother having sex with daughter, son, sister or brother and sister-brother relationship. In their society this type relationship is rampant so they had a word for that “incest” If your people have such relationship then it is called incest in English. May be such relationship was normal in your sinhala -buddhist civilization so no word for such relationship.

      Jimmy Sot’s analytic prowess is limited to finding fault with Muslims and Islam whatever be the issue. He is not interested in the Core issue of the criminality of a 8 year old being raped. The rational world including a preponderance of Indian Hindus are aghast and dumbfounded. Not so our Devadutta’s disciple Jimmy Sot. It is only a humanitarian problem if a non Muslim is affected. Hence shouldnt this mischievous provocateur’s contribution which is not worth tuppence, be relegated to the trash bin?

        The extremist groups “BokoHaram”/“Daesh alias ISIS”/ “Taliban” all come under the category Khawarij, in Islamic Literature. They are referred to as the dogs of Hell Fire. They have also harassed Muslim girls too. Hence they have nothing in common with Orthodox Islam. You are wasting everybody’s time trying to prove otherwise.

        Most of the time terrorism is reaction and revenge. LTTE is a reaction. When are you going to learn the facts what initiated that reaction and change yourself and give a better Sri Lanka for its people?

        Yesterday I was looking at one blog post of a European guy who has visited SL recently. He was basically mocking at the country, said “poor country with lacking infrastructure facilities”. Then another joined him said, “Only duty-free I saw selling full of gas stoves and refrigerators”. The other said, “It is for their large number of maids returning home to buy”

        Time to change and spread the wealth being controlled by few among all. More clashes, more mocking no development. You own the country, I have no issues. Since I am also holding its citizenship, please make it little better and I can be more proud, now I am ashamed.

            To my knowledge NO Religious Leader has been accused of this crime

            Why are you denying that you have not committed incest when no one even charged you? Could it be your conscience?

      This is not that shocking, there are so many reports and documentaries about similar happenings all over the world. In India there is even a Goddess who accepts child prostitutes and is a goddess of love. This time this case just went viral in facebook so suddenly all sorts of people have become rape experts pointing fingers at each other and religions(that they don’t belong to as culprits), not realizing that it happens next door to them all the time and there is no religious discrimination anyone can be a rapist and anyone can be raped.

    What happened to Asifa is horrible and every civilised human being must be condemning that.But these muslim intellectuals of our country will never raise their pen against the injustice cause by MMDA.How many underaged women would have been violated by adult men in your areas in the name of your religious marriage .If those kids had a say they would have never agreed for torture.Before looking at affairs of India sort out your out dated marital law Mr Harees. Kids in your areas may be deprived of education employment and better quality of life.

      Wikipedia- Age of marriage in the United States


      Unlike most Western countries, 22 of the U.S. states do not have a legal minimum age of marriage. While in most U.S. states, individuals age 1r8 have the ability to marry (with two exceptions—Nebraska (19) and Mississippi (21)), all states allow minors to marry in certain circumstances, such as parental consent, judicial consent, pregnancy, or a combination of these situations. Most states allow parties aged 16 and 17 to marry with parental consent alone. In most states, children under 16 can be married too. In the 28 states [1] which have an absolute minimum age set by statute, this age varies between 13 and 17, while in 22 states there is no statutory minimum age if other legal conditions are met. Although in such states there is no set minimum age by statute, the traditional common law minimum age is 14 for boys and 12 for girls – ages which have been confirmed by case law in some states.[2] Over the past 15 years, more than 200,000 minors married in US, and in Tennessee girls as young as 10 were married in 2001

        For instance, in 2017, Human Rights Watch pointed out that Afghanistan has a tougher law on child marriage than parts of the United States: in Afghanistan girls can marry at 16, or at 15 with permission from their father or a judge,[10]

        Hey Jamal, when you tried to copy from Wikipedia, those lines did not come to you. I am helping you by bringing them now.
        Most of the Muslims countries marriage age is about 16. In US there many states now allow LGBTQ have their marriages. If not they can form legal union to obtain pensions like spouse benefits. Practically all states allow Women to divorce freely; it is an agreement only with in partners. All lawyers Judges must have their professional certification. No Special religious preferences for any kind of marriage. Muslims woman can selected any man without considering his religious belief. No talk about Talaq Talaq Talaq. A Woman cohabiting with another man while married is only can end up in divorce. No corporal punishment or head chop off. No state can demand that women have to wear Abaya because their hairs look too infatuating.

        Please when you advice Muslim-Sinhala government about the revise of the MMDA , tell them to consider all of the American Marriage law as one set, instead cut bad parts of each countries’ marriage law, putting them together and making it as new MMDA. That is shame for Lankawe.

      Sandya madam,

      Sri Lankan law provisions Muslim girls to get married at 12 through MMDA. The section 363 of the Penal Code in 1995 says sexual intercourse with a girl below the age of 16 is a criminal offense, however the same law exempts married Muslim girls between 12 and 16 – If you say it a Rape or Abuse, you’re not abiding by the country’s law – It is a national issue or Muslim issue to have 2 different sets of rules?

    Modi brought capital punishment, but Central Goverment was slow in responding to the incident. In India still many rapes, women tortures in in public places are not investigated even after we all have seen many of them in social or News media. It is the usual Hindu Tolerance behaviour applied in a wrong way.

    Rape in all forms, forceful or statutory should be condenmed and forced rape should be punishable by castration along with a prison sentence while rape of anyone who has not reached puberty should be punished by death. That being said, I find it weird how many Sri Lankans shout at India, calling all sorts of names. India has of over 1.2 BILLION people. So naturally you get a ton of perverts and monsters. But do not throw stones from class houses (‘උඩ බලාගෙන කෙළ ගහන්න එපා’). Despite having only 20 million people, SL has a very high rape rate. Have people already forgotten the brutal rape and murder of “Seya Sadewmi” and “Sivaloganathan Vithiya? Some extreme estimates put the number of rapes in SL at 8 per day (granted that this is only one estimate which could be inaccurate). This means a rape occurs once every 3-hours in a country of 20 million people. Other studies put it at 4 to 5 rapes a day. Most of rapes in the east under MMDA does not even go reported since they are quazi-legal! This is despicable. This off-course exculdes the vast numbers of statutory rapes. This is very prevalent in SL. Girls as young as 12 get lured by men in their 30s. In one case the police caught a man in his 30s having sex with 14 year old behind a secluded bulding. What was shocking is that man had been in prison twice and at the time of arrest the girl was several weeks PREGNANT! Yes, he was banging her while she was pregnant! And these are NOT isolated incidences. Child protection authority is finding things very difficult to handle or control. So lets try to focus on our faults 1st before pointing fingers at other.

    It is true that Rape is crime. Sexual activity is not a crime. It is the unbalanced unfair legislation’s that drive large section of the society to poverty such that the males and females are deprived of the legitimate income to sustain a decent family life. The build up of such sexual frustration drives these individuals to resort to rape and other related crimes. If the society worships gods without using commonsense to understand the plight of the victims both male and female, rape being crime is another belief only. Intelligent community should come forward to take steps to upgrade the economical standards of the down trodden community to prevent such recurrences. Rapists should be subjected to psychological studies to understand the reasons for their behavior without allowing legal profession to assume the reasons.

    The nomadic Muslim eight year old Asifa was kidnapped, gang raped for several days and then killed – all this inside a Hindu temple.
    What followed shows the onset onset onset of Hindu bigotry under BJP. The chief rapist produced half million Indian rupees to stifle the case going further. Court lawyers physically restrained FIR being lodged. Modi observed the Modi silence covering himself in the Modi-yoga blanket.
    Thanks to the activists who pursued the case against all odds. Modi had to take note and sagaciously said “Our daughters need to be protected”.
    India must learn from SL – religious based bigotry is NOT nationalism.

    Very sad because India is supposed to be a Secular nation.

    Harees, but you and your ilk have been deaf, mute and blind to the wholesale rape of Yazidi, Sunni Iraqi women and the wholesale TRADE and RAPE of young girls in Nigeria by Islamic Boko Haram.

    Why is that? For the love of Allah, I cannot fathom why you, Lateef Farouk, Hilmy have been silent. Is it because you find this in the context of t he Pakistan vs India fight or because of the gross complicity of Hindu priests and Hindu RSS?

    Do you find it less egregious about how women and girls are RAPED daily by ISIS and sold into sexual slavery as war booty? Please respond. Never saw you writing about how Wahabi Salafist Sunni ISIS carry out wholesale rape.

      What happened to her is horrible but people must remember that the vast majority who are fighting for justice for Asifa are Hindus and are aghast at what had happened. Other than the Hinduvata fanatics ( largely from the northern Indian states) most Hindus are very secular. Asifa is an Indian and ultimately Indians be they Hindu Muslims or others, will see that she gets justice. India is a huge country 1.2 billion and there will be lots of perverts. What I find very duplicitous about the author of this article and other Muslim commentators here is they are very silent about all the atrocities committed on a large scale by the Muslims on others. The ISIS raping and committing genocide on the Yazidi and Christians. In Pakistan Hindu and Christian females are systematically kidnapped and raped . The large scale ethnic cleaning of Hindus from Kashmir. These Hindus Brahmin Kashmiri Pandits are the original people of Kashmir. Just like the Tamils and Tamilised Veddah in the east. They were all chased away 400000 of them from their homes lands and farms by the Muslims in Kashmir and now they are all living a miserable life in refugee camps in Delhi and other parts of North India. Just like what is now happening to the Hindu Tamils in the east , at the hands of the Muslims who only arrived there a few centuries ago as refugees and the recently settled Sinhalese. In Mutur three Tamil Hindu females were raped by Muslims and the Muslim police covered this up . In Kalmunai a Muslim university professor was illegally and forcibly trying to acquire land used as a cemetery by the local Hindus and the local Muslim politicians and police covered this up again and were arresting Tamil Hindus who protested against this. The Muslims in the east are very busy marginalising the indigenous Tamil Hindu majority in the east, as with the help of the Sinhalese settlers they have the Provincial council in their hands.

          There is only one god who is called and worshipped in different names and ways. You sound like an Islamic Zealot or a so called born again or evangelical Christian , calling the Hindu worship as false and your worship only true. Just like ISIS. There are only around 5000 Hindus now left in Kashmir now , from what was a thriving population of 400000, as the Muslims Kashmiris have forcibly, expelled them from their homes farms lands and business. Because of the large scale ethnic cleansing of Hindus from Kashmir. most Hindu temples there are empty and vacant 95% of the year and only during special Hindu festivals pertaining to the temple , the largely Saivite Kashmiri Hindu population flock to these temple , from other parts of India where they now live and after the festival is over they return to their homes in the surrounding North Indian states and the temple is vacant again. This is the reason this pervert was able to use the temple premises without being disturbed. He is using the plight of the Hindus of Kashmir, their forcible expulsion from their homeland , at the hands of their fellow Kashmiris , who are Muslims and his Hindu fanaticism , as a cloak and an excuse to hide his perversion and some idiotic BJP Hindu fanatics from North India are supporting him. However even most Hindus in North India to are repulsed by this act and are openly protesting. Kashmiri Hindus and Muslims are one and the same people. They all speak Kashmiri a Dardic language and the ancestors of the Kashmiri Muslims are the Kashmiri Hindus, just like the ancestors of Sri Lankan Muslims are Tamil Hindus. Just like the Sri Lankan Muslims having a bit of Arab and other blood but are basically Tamil, the Muslims of Kashmir, may have a little bit of Pathan ,Iranian and other Central

          contd: You and the rest are still silent about ISIS Muslim atrocities and rape and genocide of non Muslims. calling them worshippers of false gods ( are you ISIS?) in western Asia, Pakistan, Egypt and even immigrant Sri Lankan Tamil Muslim atrocities on the indigenous Hindu Tamils in the east. Instead of howling and crying about the plight of other Muslims who are completely unrelated to you , in the name of Islam , why don’t to you and the rest of the Tamil Sri Lankan Muslims concentrate on what is happening here. Who made you converted immigrant Dravidian Tamil Muslims from South India, the spokesmen for the entire Islamic world? These Muslims don’t care two hoots about you Dravidian Tamil Muslims from Sri Lanka. Indians will sort their problems. This is a Kashmiri and North Indian problem and they will sort it out. You Tamil Dravidian converts to Islam are not the keepers of the Islamic world. Stick to your own world language and culture and try to be nice to your fellow non Muslim Tamils , instead of constantly trying to backstab them and steal what is theirs in the name of Islam and fake Arab origin. Why don’t these people write about Islamic Arab Syrians chemically bombing and killing other Arab Muslim Syrians in the name of their form of Islam or Arab Muslim Saudi Arabia bombing and killing fellow Arab Muslim Yemenis , again in their form of Islam, instead of trolling around to seen which unfortunate Muslim around the world, who has nothing to do with you, converted Tamil Dravidians from South India, was killed raped and tortured by a non Muslim pervert or lunatic and post articles here, about the plight of Muslims at the hands of evil Hindus, Christians and Buddhists in these faraway lands.

            RSS, (Rogue Siva Sena), >/b> You are driveling and it is for the purpose of burying the really bad news of what happened in Toronto, Canada just day before yesterday. I mean the truck attack on innocent civilians killing 10 and injuring many.

            It seems that the planning has been done by Lankan Tamil refugees, who are still developing new techniques and methods of mass murder. In SL they killed thousands of innocent men, women and children in suicide bomb attacks. In Kattankudy mosque they machine gunned to death 472 Muslims in Friday prayer. (My Muslim friends. Never forget this most horrendous attack on your fellow Muslims and never let Allah forget it too. I am saying that because, of late, Allah seems to be a little bit absent minded).
            I don’t blame the Scarborough Tamils for this. The Tamils will do it anywhere they go and on anybody they fancy. It is a genetic trait that they cannot help. I blame the corrupt politicians of Canada who let them in for big bribes.

            As a result, Scarborough, previously a clean neighborhood, became like a Tamil Nadu field, with people defecating in the open and applying Thala Thel.

            The chicken consumed by Prabha in his legendary Last Dinners in Vanni have come to roost in Scarborough, Canada.

This crow shed little crocodile tears at the beginning by saying, “what happened to her is horrible” then start his attack on Muslim with his usual comment on Sri Lankan Muslim too. What do you know about ISIS, genocide of Yazidi, Christians? You know only what western media fed you or did you go and do your own research? You say Hindu and Christiana were raped in Pakistan. Okay give name of places, number of rapes committed, Hindus/Christians killed within this last three years. You cannot because one or two cases western media publish such a way as always happening and you Muslim haters follows that. Before partition Kashmir population was 80% Muslims, 18% Hindus and rest the other minorities. Because Jammu had a Hindu Maharajah and on this pretext Indian bastard did not give Jammu. 400,000 chased away from Jammu was a third rate lie. In Sri Lanka genocide and massacre on Muslims was carried out by you murderers. You are twisting everything the way you want and pouring your lies here.

        You read Bahiya Sutra and explain to me what it means. Then I will explain to you what Salafi means. In the age of the internet asking such a question as you have done is very stupid. but my question is entirely different and needs thinking and contemplation. I am not sure with all the rubbish that Islam is pumping in to your brain, whether you would be able to explain even a much simpler thing in the Teachings of Buddha.

All religions foster and encourage them. If all of us can imbibe and practice them you can imagine what a lovely place this would be. No, no Islam doesn’t prohibit from checking on facts.

            What I said must be taken in context of the question Jamal asked: “Q-Do you know who a Salafi is?” and my response was “You read Bahiya Sutra and explain to me what it means. Then I will explain to you what Salafi means. In the age of the internet asking such a question as you have done is very stupid. but my question is entirely different and needs thinking and contemplation”.

            It is one of the 4 methods of answering a question as found in TOB. (Teachings of Buddha), (i.e) To answer a question by a counter question.

            With all kindness, let me say that I have found that the Bahiya Sutta, out of all Suttas, is the most intriguing Sutra in Tripitaka. Hearing this short Sutta, which consists of less than 20 sentences, Bahiya achieved Arahat hood.

            The way it connects to the thinking of recent existentialist philosophers such as Jean Paul Sartre, Nietzsche, Heidegger is also an extremely interesting aspect of the Sutta.

            Sorry if my comment seems not relevant., I apologize. But may respectfully suggest to anyone interested to go to http://www.buddhanet.net/pdf_file/ctp_screen-view_v1.pdf, search for Bahiya and read the couple of pages from there.

              Edwin,
              let me explain. As I have already mentioned I thought Thassim was a Muslim. Hence I wanted his explanation so to find out what he knew of the creed of the Salafi. If he knew then he would not connote the violence and havoc done by the ISIS (which according ot Ken O’Keefe stands for Israel Security Intelligence Service). So my question was to elicit some information of a group not an ecclesiastical query

                Jamal, it is OK. No harm done. Actually, the above comment was meant for Ralli Ameen who asked me “What relationship it has for you to explain about Salafi”. .

                In any case, I appreciate that as Muslims, you are not supposed to have any ecclesiastical dealings with other religions. How does it feel to be manipulated and controlled like that? I am asking because, I would not be controlled and manipulated like that by even an almighty God to that extent even if such a God existed, which he does not.

                I also believe that ISIS are the true followers of Islam. The followers undiluted, unmodified and the true spirited Islam. The suspicion of telling that they have any connections with Israel is blasphemy.

                I do not wish to engage in polemics. As the Quran says. Unto you your religion and to me mine

                  Adding reality to the very reasonable saying “Unto you your religion and to me mine” it is transformed as “Unto you your religion, if you can manage with your beheaded body, and to me mine”.

    Let this be a bloody big warning to all the Muslums who are trying to poke the sleeping Lion.

    When the Lion wakes up this incident is going to look like a minor sore throat. When the Lion gets mad at you, this is going to occur on a daily basis. And our young Lions are not going to stop until all the Pigs are slaughtered.

    Don’t mess with the Lions is my advise.

      Sorry Rtd. Lt. Reginald Shamal Perera but your earstwhile friend Spring Koha thinks that there cannot be anyone more vulgar than you. He wrote this on April 7, 2018. To refresh your memory I will quote him….

      Captain Nimal 1 – Retd. Lt Reginald 0
      Thank You Captain (Retd)…reminds me of the words our adjutant used to sing…….
      Oh, what a night
      Late December, back in ’83
      What a very special time for me
      As I remember, what a night
      Oh, what a night
      I think Mrs Perera was her name
      But I was never gonna be the same
      What a lady, what a night

        Ceylonee,

        There are terrorists everywhere in the World. UK, France, US, everywhere are infested with terrorism. Only place in the world any terrorist monkey will not try his hanky-panky ways is in SL.

        That’s because of soldiers like us nailed them in their rear-ends so to speak. When a Sinhalese walks, a nearby terrorist will shiver in fear. That is the kind of impact we’ve had on them.
