This seems to happen constantly, although this particular case is the most horrific. Geez, the guy who got her first was a tour guide. He did that on the job. That's absolutely insane and all of them deserve those 20 year sentences.


Yea I can't imagine the trauma that would cause the fact she manged to escape and make it to a city is incredible a real testament to her spirit.

Just humans being humans if you ask me... We all have the potential to do something like that inside all of us. Why are people so surprised when something like this happens? when serial killers hunt? when terrorists destroy? when armies go to war? The answer to all these questions and more is simply, "We like, no love doing these things" It feels so fucking great to conquer your enemies or to hurt the weak. That sense of fulfillment that comes with power is absolutely delightful. To say otherwise is blasphemy against your true nature. Humans are such wonderfully evil creatures aren't they?

Actually, most of India is Hindu, though the country is diverse in terms of religion. Just as bad as the treatment of women is the rise of Hindu extremism that includes, among other religious violence, the beating and murder of people caught eating beef, a staple food for many of India's poor.

Hey leave the army out of this mate. I won't have the flag I fought for insulted by a civilian. Unless you wore a uniform and saw what we saw you and everyone else can just shut the hell up about what had to be done.

He never said anything contradicting your statement. Buddhism did originate in India I believe.

I agree with this. Personally, I feel the only people who have the right to judge combat soldiers are those that have seen combat. Same with police officers. It's a lot easier to judge a situation from the comfort of your armchair the next day than when you're looking at the business end of a gun.

My point was that the origination of Buddhism and the dominance of Buddhism are different things. His statement was correct, but it based itself on an assumption that the religious would merit wide adherence in India simply because it is the place of origin.

I think a lot of "cultures" in that part of the world have gone on long enough, personally.


Yeah, especially human culture; wish that one would die.

"According to Singh, a Kolkata-based tourist guide took the scholar, who has been studying rural life in India for some time, to Bodh Gaya to show her the pilgrimage center where Gautam Buddha, the founder of Buddhism, is said to have obtained enlightenment under a tree. He was later joined by four others who imprisoned and raped her, Singh said."

Reading that sentence, she was there for work and took the sensible precaution of hiring a guide.
It was just awful that the one person she should have been able to trust turned out to be
one of the predators.

And to all the people asking why she went there alone: blaming the victims doesn't help, it justifies the
perpetrators.

You know what else comes from India? Right, Hinduism. It's often been used throughout past to tell people "You belong to the lower class, which means you don't have any rights. There is no way for you to be a valuable member of society. Now fuck off."

India has a terrible misogynistic rape culture (as an earlier poster has already said) so unfortunately this isn't surprising. It's disgusting and sick and needs to stop, but if anything it is become more common.

Rather than countries like India moving forward and getting rid of this sick way of thinking, it's spreading. Countries like the USA and the UK (yes, I'm insulting my own country, us brits are far from perfect) are starting to move toward this. It's becoming okay to rape someone. We're no longer moving forwards when it comes to women's rights. We're all going backwards.
