A 6-Year-Old Girl Was Brutally Raped In Madhya Pradesh. Why Won’t The Men Stop Even In A Lockdown?
There is something so evil and vile about the whole concept of rape. Just talking about a few of the most gruesome rapes in our country makes my blood boil. What those women must go through is pure torture and what is worse that not even a pandemic is enough to stop monstrous men from preying on women and girls.
There have been multiple rape cases that have been reported during this lockdown and yes, that proves no matter the circumstances, violence against women just doesn’t stop down. Out of all those cases, there is this one case involving a minor that brought tears to my eyes.
I am talking about the brutal rape of a 6-year-old girl in a village in Madhya Pradesh’s Damoh district. The little girl was kidnapped on Wednesday from her village near Bhopal. She was playing with some other children when the perpetrator took her to an isolated place and raped her. Her family and everyone else searched for her all night and then lodged a missing person complaint with the Jabera Police station on Thursday morning after their search yielded no results.

दमोह ज़िले में एक मासूम बिटिया के साथ हुई दुष्कर्म की घटना शर्मनाक और दुर्भाग्यपूर्ण है।
मैंने घटना का संज्ञान लेकर अपराधी को जल्द से जल्द पकड़ने के निर्देश दिए हैं। उस दरिंदे को सख्त से सख्त सज़ा दी जाएगी!
बिटिया के समुचित इलाज में किसी भी प्रकार की कमी नहीं आने दी जाएगी।

The Cheif Minister of Madhya Pradesh, Shivraj Singh Chouhan also Tweeted about this incident saying, “The incident of the rape of an innocent girl in Damoh district is shameful and unfortunate. Taking cognisance of the incident, I have instructed to catch the culprit as soon as possible. Harsh punishment will be served. We will ensure that the best treatment is provided for the survivor, and there will be no shortcomings.”
If reports are to believed, then this is the third rape in the state in six days.
On one hand, we are fighting a deadly virus that has killed almost 700 people. And on the other hand, men like these continue attacking women and girls. Is it that difficult for these men to leave women and girls alone? It’s really fucking sad that even though we are living under these horrible circumstances, rapes are still happening.
I just can’t believe people are still doing this. What will it take for this rape culture in our country to overturn?
