Women's organisation to Centre: Stop repeat of Kathua, Unnao incidents

Protestors block the Jammu Pathankot highway in Kathua during the Jammu Bandh on Wednesday

Unnao and Kathua rape cases have enraged the entire country with people from all walks of life and from all parts of India nearly unanimously calling out for jsutice for the victims and harsh punishment for those found guilty.

"Heartening to see the Supreme Court take cognisance of the attempted obstruction of justice by some lawyers in the brutal Kathua rape & murder case reminding us once again of the greatness of this nation", she wrote. By taking swift and strict action, please show that the Indian government's initial silence and delayed response to these horrific crimes against humanity are not a support of the accused because the accused have some or the other link with those in power. Sources also said the PM rejected the ministers' defence that they had attended the protest organised by the Hindu Ekta Manch against the so-called frame-up in order to defuse tension as thousands had turned up for the protest at Hiranagar on March 22.

The rape and killing of the girl, who belonged to the nomadic Bakerwal Muslim community, has become a national issue.

She hailed the country's political leadership, the judiciary, the media and the civil society for standing with the Jammu and Kashmir government to ensure justice for the eight-year-old victim in the case.

Chief minister Mehbooba Mufti has already said that Jammu and Kashmir will soon pass a bill for death sentence to those who rape minors.

BJP general secretary Ram Madhav flew to Jammu this morning and held consultations with senior party leaders as well as MLAs and MLCs to discuss the situation in the state. If someone is hurt because of me, I have no right to remain in that post, that is why I resigned.

They will visit the state and reach out to office-bearers of the Bar Associations of Jammu and Kathua and also meet the affected families and the common people to figure out what actually transpired, Mr Mishra told reporters here. Hussain also opposed vehemently the demand of Jammu lawyers for transfer of the investigations in this case to the CBI. They tried to give communal colour to a heinous crime.

Filmmaker Rahul Roy, who too participated in the protest, said: "As a country we have to hang our heads in shame for having failed the Constitution".

Madhav had yesterday said, "That is why they had to resign".
