At the age of 8, when a girl should play with toys, 4 men played with her life. She has been raped and killed.
In early January, Asifa Bano, an 8-year-old girl in a purple dress, was grazing her horses in a meadow in Kashmir when a man beckoned her
into a forest. She followed. He grabbed her by the neck and forced her to take sleeping pills. With the help of a friend, they say, he dragged her to a nearby temple and locked her inside.
For the next three days, the two men and at least one other raped her, again and again. In the end, she was strangled, after one of the men allegedly insisted on raping her one last time.
Days later, Asifa’s crumpled body was found in the forest, in the same purple dress, now smeared with blood.
#Crime inside Hindu temple
That Hindu temple is at the center of the crime makes this case even more combustible.According to police ,Sanji Ram, the temple’s custodian, devised the plan as a way to terrorize the Bakarwals, and that he enlisted a nephew and some friends to kidnap and kill Asifa. Police say they believe Asifa was selected simply because she was by herself and “a soft target.”
For generations, Bakarwal nomads, who drift with their herds across the plains and hills of northern India, have leased pastures from Hindu farmers for their animals to graze in winter. But in recent years, some Hindus in the Kathua area have begun a campaign of abuse against the nomads. Villagers said Ram was their ringleader.
They enlisted the police and went to the small temple where Ram works. He insisted that he had not seen the girl. The temple was locked. According to police, at that moment Asifa was being starved inside, hidden under a table and some plastic mats.
Mohammad Yusuf Pujwala, Asifa’s father, said his daughter was killed for one reason: to drive the Bakarwals away.
“But we have land here and live here,” he said. “This is home for us.” He sounded almost too tired to grieve.
That’s it.. This is the whole stroy of crime..
No…. There is beyond…. what you read above.
Asifa, a girl who belonged to a Muslim nomadic tribe, who didn’t even know the meaning of caste and religion, was raped by hindu men. It was not just another isolated, horrific episode of sexual violence in India, but a planned attack to drive Asifa’s nomadic community out of the area.
In India.. People are still fighting for religion and caste and on the top of it….crimes are done on the name of religion.
At this moment , nation should stand together… And actually people are together..but not as humans.. As hindu…as Muslim.. Why don’t we show our unity against crime? Why Every time our religion becomes more important than humanity.?
In India, it is very easy to use #hashtags, to do protest, to do march…. And strikes.. But it is very much difficult to get justice.
Even our #so_called_political_leaders use this terrible moments to get votes rather then helping victims in getting justice.
Humanity dies everyday in this world…. Justice is a name only in books….. #hashtages are only for trend…..
–Do you think sending these monsters into jail will be true Justice.?
–In many countries… These type of monsters are killed by people with stones.. Bullets.. And even they are tortured beyond worse.
-Not just share #hashtage post but also take steps.
It’s high time to choose between #Humanity or #Religion
