The harsh ruling by a bunch of sick people who consider themselves to be above law and order and passed out judgement for tarnishing the image of a girl for first falling in love with a boy outside her community and later failure to give fine asked to give. The so-called body of "Judges" passed the verdict of trampling the dignity of the girl by allowing brute force of 10 cowards on her.
The country has recently come out with changes in criminal laws to prevent crime against women, to prevent sexual oppression in the wake of the gang rape of a 23-year old para medical student in Delhi who succumbed to her injuries later which shook the conscience of the nation. But that seems no deterrent.
It's high time we realised that no law and rules can change this until there is a change in mindset. Society at large has to understand that woman is not an object that a man can keep in control of and play with. The mindset that men have an ownership and entitlement over women has to do away with.
