Brutal Rape Prompts Calls For Indian Government To Address Violence Against Women

India flagWe have another horrific gang rape committed overseas by men who claim to be teaching a woman good morals. The physiotherapy student was attacked on a city bus in Delhi after watching a movie with a male friend. Six drunk men got on the bus and reportedly attacked the woman for being out at night with a man and decided to “teach her a lesson” by beating them both and repeatedly raping the woman. The rape and beating was so severe that the woman is on a ventilator and her intestines were so severely ruptured that doctors had to remove them to prevent gangrene.


What is bizarre is that the city bus continued to drive around the city during the attack. It is not clear what the driver was doing as the men took turns raping the woman and beating the couple with a pipe and fists.

Citizens have protested the lack of police sympathy and effort in dealing with the high level of rapes in Delhi. Activists have also blamed aspects of the Indian culture of male privilege.

  1. Another one of our allies. What a great group we have! The brutality and alleged cultural and religious support for such behavior is chilling. Women are at risk all over the world even in our own country. It is way past time for things to change.

  2. The Texas “government needs to address violence against women. See the topic above about roadside cavity searches by Law Enforcement Offenders. That LEO word is gaining cachet. We used to use it to refer to dumb schmucks who could not tie their shoes. Now we have a good substitute on blogsites for the word Pigs.

  3. That word “government” was meant to be in quotes. They dont have government in Texas. They gotta governor named Rick Perry who cant tie his shoes and a legislature that emerges from a sewer every morning. Texas: Do something about your Pigs.

  4. BarkinDog, you observe that the Texas Legislature “emerges from a sewer every morning.” Huh? They haven’t emerged once, not yet, to my knowledge.

  5. Professor, you say:

    It’s clear to ME what the driver was doing as the men took turns raping the woman and beating the couple. He was being hospitable. He was giving those rapists/assailants/would-be murderers a forum where they could safely rape and nearly kill people.

    Or is there some alternative theory?

  6. Malisha,

    I got a worse one. They bribed him to signal them when he had a suitable victim on board. A few rupiahs buys a lot of service from a man with hungry kids. Remember the Dust Bowl?

    This fits in with the “aren’t others terrible” recurring theme here.
    India is special, the only place which has had a woman Prime Minister( not forgettiing the others, but could not call her President), has great curry which you will puke up at the misery which meets you on the streets.

    Let’s get back to fighting our own persecution of women. That is an unfinished battle.

    The comments are not pointed at you. Just using you as a launch pad.

  7. Sounds like a terrible crime. I’m not sure I’d condemn all India, especially considering all the abuses that take place in my country, the good ole US of A.

  8. Malisha, the driver was a participant. Below is a more lengthy article than the one linked. If one follows the links in the article one gets a pretty clear idea of the rape culture in India. I read in another article elsewhere that a court case over rape can take as long as a decade to get to court and that bribery of the police and local governments that recommend weather the national police should proceed with a case, is SOP. It is such a bad situation that ‘fast track’ courts are being set up for rape cases; there is also a link in the below article that discusses that aspect of the legal system.

  9. Corruption PLUS rotten judicial system EQUALS culture of rape and murder?

    Is there possibly some other factor in this equation, such as

    POLICE COVER-UP HABITS?

    this happens here, economically (and just like that, actually….), all the time….why the outrage? Does the distance make it safe? Guess what, you are only fooling yourselves if you think there is a separation between those people and that incident, and here in this Country….so, what is being done here? well, ponder that as John Boehner keeps driving the bus through the streets of the city while so many are screaming for relief….the untouchable gangstas are out in force …
