Bengal Shame - Strong and Stern Action Required

Tribal girl gang-raped by members of kangaroo court as punishment for affair

A horrific news just coming in the media. A tribal woman has been raped by 12-men to execute the orders issued by their Panchayat leader for daring to have an affair with a man who is not her caste. Though caste system is prevalent in India, this is a worst form of caste atrocity and we should not allow this to happen. Accepting responsibility to this heinous act, the Mamta Banerjee Government should act or else quit. As suggested by the Governor of West Bengal , a strong corporal punishment will only reduce this kind of violence against women. Irrespective of caste, creed, language, religion and region - the people should unite and raise their voice against these kind of Kangaroo courts. The Supreme Court should immediately issue guidelines to all this kind of 'unlawful' local bodies and limit their powers once for all. Otherwise, we don't call ourselves as human beings. We are also like pigs and dogs to ignore this shameful conduct.
