Another gangrape of a minor Hindu Dalit girl by Muslim youth has been reported, this time from Chilkana village in the Saharanpur district of UP. Having raped her they feared that she might reveal their names, so they killed her by forcing poison down her throat.
This horrific crime has angered locals and communal tension prevailed in the locality. The victim’s mother and a younger sister had gone for a wedding. The victim’s brother said that their father was no more. On that fateful night, he was sleeping at his uncle’s place and the minor girl in their house.
Around 3 AM on Monday night, they heard cries emanating from the house. They rushed inside and saw the victim lying naked and was frothing at her mouth. The poison had taken effect. The dying girl informed them that their neighbors Faizan and Wajid had forced poison down her throat after having raped her. They tried to chase the criminal duo down but the attackers managed to escape. They arranged a vehicle for the girl but unfortunately, she passed away on the way to the hospital.
As the news spread, villagers started to assemble. Bhim Army members also protested. The police meanwhile hunted down Faizan and arrested him. Senior Superintendent of Police Dr. S. Chanappa along with additional forces rushed to Chilkana and pacified the agitators. In view of the volatile situation, extra forces have been deployed in the vicinity.
Such crimes against Hindu girls at hands of Muslim perpetrators occur with disturbing regularity in Western UP. Although our system claims to have toughened the laws on rape and sexual assault after the Nirbhaya case, the enforcement of those laws is woefully lacking both by police and judiciary. We recently saw the case of another minor Hindu girl from the Jatav (Dalit) community being lured away from Delhi to Assam and then to Haryana, where she was raped for several days by a Muslim youth – the police just refused act and recover the girl even though they had traced the accused to Assam through his cell.
When will Hindu society rise as one to force the system to act and put the fear of God into those who think they can prey on Hindu girls and get away with it? When will we realize that the mainstream media, especially the Delhi-based channels, are rabid Hindu-haters who are only interested in covering issues where Hindu fault-lines can be deepened such as we saw in the Hathras case? Hindus are in a race against time and we need to free our minds of feudal divisions and imported ideas like secularism, liberalism, if we have to ensure the safety, dignity and prosperity of our people.
