I love India but this case is a shocking indictment of the country. We need to stand foursquare behind Indians demanding justice.
With tears she enters the world
As her first shriek unfurls
Nobody to groom her, strengthen her
Nobody to apprise
That these shrieks are all that her destiny comprise.
We live in a country
Where a woman’s biggest fear is assault
A million molestation cases a year
A million cries for respect
And all we hear is
“It’s her Fault!”
From inappropriate clothing to staying out late
The Biggest lie they tell us is that
She is guilty for ruining her fate!
What was her foible?
That she was a Muslim?
That she was a girl?
In the rallies that succour the horrendous rapists’ guise
How soulless are those men and women
Who accuse, on the name of religion and politics, a child?
The biggest lie they tell us is that
The law is equal for all who perpetrate a crime.
Why isn’t there an uproar?
