No Country For Rapists!

No Country For Rapists!
Into that heaven of freedom, let my country awake
Are you familiar with ‘The Tyranny of Silence’? You know where Martin Luther King Jr says, and we quote, “The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.”
Well, we’re no judges of character, but we can tell you this, in the light of the #JusticeForAsifa movement, if you have an opinion on the matter and do not make yourself heard for fear of rebuttal, you will not have mattered.
In our opinion, rape is a crime that receives far too less punishment. If anybody has to fear rape, it has to be the rapist. The repercussion of committing the crime should instil deep-seated, immovable, unshakeable fear.
And someday, that day will come. That day isn’t today and it might not come during our lifetimes. There’s rampant abuse of power by powers-that-be and it will take a while (and political will) for change to come. And change won’t come with silence.
Silence spells compliance and we can’t be part of that group. So like these musicians, we need to say enough is enough. So, say something, do something. Be heard, be counted…
Here’s what music-makers in this country feel about the situation…
God made us so that we could enjoy his beautiful world and live in harmony and peace and this is what we give him in return for his blessings and gifts??? Rape and Murder ???? Disgusting af .. sad
It breaks my heart to pieces thinking about whatever happened to Asifa. When will they stop doing this to girls?? Are they really Humans? I don’t think so.. It’s HIGH TIME! We Can’t let this Happen Again!! Plz!! #JusticeForAsifa
I don’t know what to say.These monsters have made fun of humanity.Totally heartbroken. Culprits should be hanged to death. Let’s work on it together.
Who was Asifa ? She was an eight years old daughter of Bakerwals. Who are Bakerwals? A nomad tribe who when spotted the Kargil intruders promptly informed the army. Who are the people who are trying to protect the rapists of this little girl? Now it is your turn to answer.
Mard hone par itni sharam pahle kabhi nahin aayi. Jab tak tumhare gunahgaar pakde nahin jaate, Hum sab tumhare gunahgaar hain #Asifa#Kathua #JusticeForAasifa #RapistsDeservesDeath #KathuaRape
How many more children like baby Asifa will be sacrificed at the intersect of religion & politics? How many more children will have to suffer unimaginable crimes before we wake up? I’m disgusted. It’s time for swift action. We owe it to Asifa and to humanity. #justiceforAsifa.
I do not know how to sleep in peace or what to do. What would I have done if I was Asifa’s mother or sister or masi. I have nieces too and I shiver with anger and frustration and sadness. #asifa @narendramodi if this govt is really serious about progress 1st safeguard your daughters
Imagine what goes through the mind of an 8 yr old as she is drugged, held captive, gang raped over days and then murdered. If you don’t feel her terror, you are not human. If you don’t demand Asifa get justice, you belong to nothing.
Can’t believe this is happening!!!! Shocked and appalled at what this has come to.. really hope justice is served! Really really really hope
To starve, drug, rape and then murder an 8 year old child. Can’t believe this has happened. Sounds horrifying but imagine her horror when she went through it all. #JusticeforAsifa
Dosh doge logo ko ya dosh doge Krishna ko. Insaniyat ne de diya hai istifaa Aasifa ko. Bhagwan ke gharon me ved hamko jo padhate hain, Geeta padhne wala saare paath bhool jate hain.
