ASHIFA - Not the FIRST RAPE CASE but can we try to MAKE IT THE LAST
0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!
Ashifa, her incident is one of the many cases which has hit and mocked our so called civilized human beings, a rape case that has caused an outrage in the mind of Indian citizens. The same kind of protests that followed in case of the previous rape cases is going to follow in her case also. The candle light marches, the rallies. Yes these all are a way to show our agitation our protest against the heinous deed that has struck our country. But they were done earlier too, in the brutal rape cases that we all are well aware about. Did those protests change anything if it did I must be blind, because if it did, Ashifa would have been alive today and the marches, the rallies, this petition would have no purpose. Conclusion, it didn't.
The case of Ashifa is not the first rape case in India. But we can try to make it the last. To inculcate fear in the mind of those rapists, to send a chill up their spine(if they have one though). They should tremble before doing such heinous crimes and their punishment would be such that it sets an example.
I am writing this petition for three reasons and try to bring about a change:
1. In our country we have schools of various boards teaching various subjects that are under their curriculum. In this petition I request all the schools and the government to implement sex education as a subject in all the schools in the time of adolescence of the teenagers maybe from class 8 or as the authorities see fit. The students who are the to be citizens of our tomorrow should learn to respect the other gender, the male should respect the female and vice versa. Education is the only way to eliminate and lighten the darkness of the crisis that we are facing.
2. I also request the schools to implement classes on self defense so that if necessary self-defense may buy time before help arrives for the victim.
3. A separate cell should be organized by the government. This cell would only be concerned for the safety and security of the females of our society. I request the government to also take care of the fact that the existance of the cell(if created) should be made public such that each and every individual may he or she belong to rural, sub urban or urban is aware of its existence. I also request a helpline no. so that the cell could respond in the time of crisis and help the women when they need help. And this cell or its branches to be dispersed in our country to each state, its districts so that the lapse between call for aid and the response time is shortened.
I am just a student myself, but I have realized the crisis that we are facing now and its time to make a stand. There is hardly any family which doesn't have any female member in it. I appeal to them all that as we protect our own family and each and every member in it. fight for this cause too. Because this is our country, its citizens, all the women, the girls are our family and I don't think I have to tell anyone what we do when someone threatens our family. We fight back o uproot the cause of the insecurity. Again I am going to repeat the same line; Ashifa is not the first one who was brutally raped, but it can be the last. Let her death, her sacrifice, her pain be a cause for us to take a firm stand.
PLEASE FORWARD THIS MESSAGE TO EACH AND EVERY INDIVIDUAL YOU KNOW. DON'T HESITATE THE CAUSE IS JUST AND THE FIGHT IS FOR JUSTICE.
SILENCE NEVER AIDS ANYONE
SPEAK UP AND ACT!!
FOR IF WE SPEAK TODAY IT MIGHT SAVE SOMEONE TOMORROW!!!!!
