BJP Wants Asaram Incident to be Seen from Different Perspectives! This is Ridiculous. If we believe the women in our family, then why we assume that the 15 year old girl may file a False FIR?
There are shady individuals in every Profession. Hence, when BJP’s Uma Bharti exonerates Godman Asaram from the sexual assault charges of a 15 year old girl, she overlooks this basic fact. She is not alone in supporting Asaram. Her party spokespersons are constantly supporting Asaram on the grounds that the sanctity of “Hindu Saints” be maintained. That apart, groups of men and women are staging demonstrations in support of Asaram in various cities across India. These groups are manhandling and beating journalists as well.
I can’t say this for sure (as there is no way to prove this) but in my own city, most of these so called supporters of Bapu Asaram were carrying BJP flags (they wanted to be seen with Asaram), and were actively demonstrating in front of City’s Administrative Offices. They wanted the case against Asaram to be quashed.
These are unfortunate sightings for a country which saw a brutal sexual assault in December last year.
When political parties and societies try defending the accused of crime against women, atrocities against women will not stop:
Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party and BJP staged massive protests after the December 2012 sexual assault incident in Delhi. While the Aam Aadmi party is nowhere in the picture right now, the BJP is actually defending Asaram. That apart, the Western media which wrote encyclopedic articles after the December 2012 sexual assault, is mum on the Asaram incident.
You can’t see sexual assaults against women and girls with different perspectives. Any atrocity against a woman is condemnable.
BJP has a compulsion of defending Asaram, how else will it be seen as the contractor of Hindus in the country. Not to sound too partial though, the BJP spokespersons are using their elocution skills to explain why the sanctity of Asaram must be maintained. They want the country to see the matter from the legal perspective. Unfortunate.
Either BJP is Too Wise, or the Indians Too Fool:
Ask yourself a question: Why are Dowry Act and Sexual Assault Act against Women, too women-friendly?
The Answer is Simple: No woman in her right frame of mind and calculation, will sabotage her marriage for no real reason. In the same way, no woman in her right frame of mind and calculation, will file an FIR that she has been sexually assaulted.
That’s why the moment an FIR is lodged under Dowry Act or Sexual Assault Against Women Act, the accused is arrested immediately.
The question of soundness of mind and intention always remains in an insignificant small incidents, but these issues can never be the grounds to evade the arrest or exonerate the accused of the crime. These things are to be left for the professionals to decide (on the orders of the courts).
If we believe the women in our family, then why we assume that the 15 year old girl filed a False FIR?
BJP wanting the citizens to see the legal side of the accusations is a big disrespect to the women in general, and the 15 year old girl in particular. By ascribing various dimensions to the case – legal, societal, spiritual, political etc. – the principal Opposition party is treating Indians too fool.
A crime against a woman is a serious crime. The accused must be arrested immediately, without questioning the motives behind the accusations. Lets have the decency of believing what the Girl has said. If we believe the women in our family, then why we assume that the 15 year old girl filed a False FIR?
