Not long back Mumbai and entire nation was shocked by barbaric attack on its commercial capital. Public memory in India is very short lived like chimpanzees. And in stead of rapting on world’s and nation’s worst foe- terrorism, the so called well wishers of Hindu religion and in name of protecting its culture, Ram sena are bashing and banging the youth. Biggest shame is that it’s done in by the party who bears the name of Hindu deity.
What is the great idea in attacking defenseless women who are adults for sipping wine? If this does not suit Indian culture does beating and molesting women suit Indian culture?
Calling them prostitutes and abusing just because they were in the pub partying - are we in a Taliban country or is Mangalore 200 years back in civilization?
Who have given these road side rogues the right for moral policing. Do they know anything about morality.BJP should distance themselves from these outfits and condemn those paragons of virtue , book these guys under criminal sections and be severe in punishing. This is an unpardonable atrocity on freedom guaranteed by the constitution.
Who have given them rights to take law in their hands? Who made them armament of a religious conviction? Who let these dogs out?
Lord Rama was that you?
Know what constitution says:
In several incidents of moral policing by groups in Dakshina Kannada district, the couples have been dragged to the police station by its members who accuse them of indulging in morally unacceptable behavior. In five such cases that have been registered by city stations (Mangalore East, Mangalore South and Bantwal Town police stations) in the last two months, cases have been filed against the couples under Section 92 (O) of the Karnataka Police Act, 1963.
The section describes the offence thus:
When a person, “willfully and indecently exposes his person, uses indecent language or behavior indecently or riotously or in disorderly manner in a street or place of public resort (place) or in any public offence.”
In police parlance, cases booked under this section are referred to as “petty offences” where the offender is let off after being made to pay a nominal fine. Under this section for merely being in love is a violation of the basic spirit of democracy. “In fact, the groups that are attempting to enforce these moral codes should be booked,”
A Chennai high court senior advocate says that section 92 (O) is “highly ambiguous” and “open to interpretation”. “
It places too much arbitrary power in the hands of the police. The meaning of the word ‘indecent’ can have umpteen interpretations. Anybody can be arrested under this section. "
Questions to be answered :-
Why state government is trying to protect hooligans?
Why the men and women who were thrown on road have not yet registerd the complained to police?
Why is police trying to weaken the case. ?
If we do not make this an example case and punish the people - it will send a message to these goondas that they can do anything and get away with it. ?
Will any of the above politicians will act when their own daughter is there?
Of course they will cry and go out. Just think these ladies who were kicked and thrashed as your own daughters and please act.
Why Dakshina Kannada district police have served a notice on the electronic media for their failure to inform the police about the attack. (It happens only in India - like a Bollywood movie they (police) always reach after the incident. And more so instead of owning and accepting their failure - they are blaming media)
Root cause of problem:
law is not strict enough?
Organizations like these because they see more benefit that what they will pay. The benefit from such moral policing is wide national publicity. And what they have to pay a possible arrest and a very short jail term. It’s important, therefore, to increase the punishment under law. In this case they should be charged under offenses which give them at lease few years of sentence - it will act as a deterrent for other such organizations in future. And in fact not only actual miscreants - their bosses should also be booked - who do not have guts of doing such acts themselves (and mislead youths and send them for such acts). Rigorous prosecution, conviction and punishment will only desist people from such anti-social behavior in future.
WORD OF CAUTION:
I never shore up any one taking law in their hand in the name of protecting a religion but at the same time we should also reflect that it will take time before we move from a socially conservative thinking to a complete modern one and more than this the femine gender should know that they are still vulnerable to crime most, so they should utilize the rights of the citizen given by constitution in a way that they don’t land in trouble. As long as they understand this and their errands, it should be fine.
