Rules should be for public good, and the public should not be made slave of rules for denying the rightful to be done. Rules should be changed to enable the identities of rape victims to be made public after death so that Ashoka Chakra may be awarded to the deceased girl on the coming Republic Day for unparallel example of bravery to fight against rapists’ attack even though she could have saved her life by surrendering to rape as was suggested by a self-acclaimed inhuman saint.
If necessary, Ashok Chakra may be awarded without naming her at present. Later, her photos and identity may be made public after change of rules. Rather, a memorial should be planned in her memory and her photos with citations put at appropriate places throughout the country for inducing bravery among girls who have to often anonymously face atrocities in this male-dominated society.
