Rape is the worst form of violence. Men can sympathise, but never fully understand the traumatic abuse of dignity, as Jaya Bachchan so eloquently noted in the Rajya Sabha. The feminist movement gathered steam in the 1970s with a slogan that was clear, concise, and went to the essence: ‘Whatever I wear, whatever I do, Yes means yes, no means no!’ The decision lies with women, not men.
New Delhi: As an outrage erupted over the rape and brutal assault on a 23-year-old student, two more people were arrested in connection with the horrific incident as government promised to fast-track the case amidst calls in Parliament for death penalty to rapists. The health of the girl, a para-medical student who is battling for life in Safdurjung Hospital, deteriorated this evening and she was put on "full time ventilator support". The arrests today came on top of detention of two men last night in connection with the incident that took place at around 9:30 pm in a moving bus on Sunday in south Delhi. Two days after the incident in which her male friend, an engineer, was also attacked for standing up to the rogues and both thrown out of the bus, both the Houses of Parliament had an impromptu discussion on the issue. Members expressed anger and concern over safety of the women in Delhi with cinestar-turned-MP Jaya Bachchan even breaking down in the Rajya Sabha. In both the Houses, members felt that the ...
Jaya Bachchan, a Rajya Sabha MP from the Samajwadi Party had an emotional breakdown earlier this week as she was shaken and shattered by the gruesome Delhi rape incident. Her teary-eyed speech in the Rajya Sabha and passionate statements thereafter got extensive media coverage.
Eminent jurist and Rajya Sabha member Ram Jethmalani demanded removal of the Delhi Police chief over the failure to check the "heinous" crime. Women members in both Houses said that the "barbaric" incidents of rape turned a woman into a living corpse and therefore there was need to give death penalty to perpetrators. BSP chief Mayawati said law should be amended to ensure stronger action in such cases. "Nothing will happen by only arresting the perpetrators. Give them stringent punishment," she said. Jethmalani said, "Former Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri set an example of democratic responsibilities that somebody's head must roll. "I am not asking for the Home Minister's head...But the head of the Delhi Police chief must roll and you must ensure that this happens if he does not do it (resign) voluntarily." Jaya Bachchan (SP), who stood in protest for quite some time over not being allowed to speak on the issue of women's safety in Delhi, said an act of sexual assault should be treated on par with mur ...
Parliament shocked Parliament on Tuesday expressed shock and outrage over the barbaric gangrape of a girl inside a moving bus in south Delhi with strong demands being made for capital punishment to perpetrators of such heinous crimes. The Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha saw members of all parties speaking in unison and raising serious concern over repeated incidents of rape in the national capital, whose law and order comes directly under the Union Home Ministry. Opposition members demanded a categorical assurance from Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde that such an incident will not recur. Women members in both Houses were in the forefront in expressing shock and anguish over the incident, voicing concern over the safety of the fair sex in Delhi. Cinestar- turned-MP Jaya Bachchan even broke down while speaking on the issue in the Upper House. .
