Why Do Some Rape Deserve Anger and Others Do Not?

In the recent months, incidents of rape and other forms of violence against women have created lots of furore and anguish, and rightly so amongst middle class throughout the country. However, what is interesting to note is that the response to such crimes was/is highly selective. The following table enlists 101 cases of brutal crimes against Dalit Women (reported between Damini/Nirbhaya Case, 16th Dec 2012 and Aasaram Arrest, 31st Aug 2013) which could hardly outrage the consciences of people. Hence, it’s important to ask that, Why Do Some Rape Deserve Anger and Others Do Not? Editor

    Silence of the (middle class) lambs.

    Really appreciate this compilation. It helps me talk about the Indian Realities with my western friends much better and clearly.

  2. SHEEBA ASLAM FEHMI

    Great Job. Thanks for this compilation.

    This is an admirable effort to highlight the tragedy of hapless indian women who get subjected to this Heineous crime day -in and-day-out.Apart from the trauma through the victim passes , the most unfortunate part is that The Beast who is indulging in it , in many cases , thinks this act as a CONQUEST instead of a crime !!!I had seen in a story in “CRIME-Petrol” that in ASSAM, a NGO had taken it upon themselves to go to young girls schools and lectured to the teen-aged girls , how to take care of oneself to avoid such Monsters.Perhaps if it is made mandatory in all schools,it willhelp.
    It should also be appreciated that what you have compiled from news reports ,is not even 10% of the actual rapes that take place in our great country.It should also be appealed by police ,the law – and education ministries that the citizens should REPORT all such cases

  4. a very good job..being a dalith woman i am thinking in what way i can help dalit women..

  5. haranam khaira

    Do something about this – Do not make more kids if you can not give them good education and living. Dalits should get together and pile rubbish in front of police stations, DC offices and all other sites if they are not given justice. Do something physical, active but still non-violent. Do something. Enough has happened in Haryana – are all Dalits Dead? Are they dead? Have they lost limbs? How can they live with this? Stop selling votes for peanuts. Stop saluting officials and upper castes. Take a stand. Pleeeeeeeeeese do something. I am sick of reading news from Haryana and other states about rapes, killings, etc etc.

  6. it is our duty as Indian do not ask to break the caste and the gender structure. the fact that the caste and gender is so embedded in our every system be it government that people have accepted to let it be that way. its it better to remove the social atrocities, rather than asking a girl or a dalit to protect and defend themselves. its not so easy. it is making the condition worse. when my mother was young she was able to leave her home even after 10pm alone. and here i am in 2014 has to think twice doing so. be alert. people are working over it. agitation is happening, yet the number has not decreased. why? it is important to find the reasons and work over it. rather than arranging for temporary solutions, which are making situations more rigid. the duty starts from to ask the government why it is so? why not strict actions are taken when we have laws related to both atrocities against women and the deprived caste.
    its high time that we stop putting the responsibility of agitation over the victims.
