I was really shocked to see that an 8 year old rape victim’s name trends on porn site. The details of the heinous act are bone chilling; and yet thousands of Indians went looking for a video footage of the Kathua Rape Case. At this point, I feel ashamed to call myself Indian.

I Am Ashamed To Call Myself Indian

When you wake up one fine morning and find out that thousands of your countrymen and looking for a video footage of an 8 year old girl brutally raped and murdered, this makes me question the Indian Value System that we all boast so much about. What does that tell about us as a country? Are we a country full of desperate, sex-starved paedophiles who get off watching a group of people raping little girls?

Even though there are no videos to show, the name trends top on one of the leading porn sites. That itself is very alarming. A search keyword trends when thousands of people search for it. Some people might want to brush it off as “NOTHING” however, it shows the mindset of people of the country we call our own. How could you trust anybody with your children these days? The person right next to you could be the one who helped this innocent 8 year old girl’s name to get on the top of the trend list.

Do Indian Culture And Rape Culture Go Hand In Hand?

India maintains an average of around 24,000 rapes per annum which brings it down to one rape every 22 minutes. This is only looking at the rapes that are reported, the actual count could be much more than that. With the light on the trend on porn site to seek the video of the 8 year old little girl gives me a reason to worry about the safety of girls in India even more. There could actually be more crimes against women that go unreported than we anticipate. I wouldn’t hesitate to say that I feel ashamed to call myself Indian.

It is important that we bring in the changes to curb this menace. Simply blaming it on western influence is not good enough. It is not the most educated who commit most crimes against women. We must focus on education, awareness and create a society where everyone flourishes and gets good education.

When we talk about rape, most people talk about the severity of the punishment. It sure would work as fear has been the driving force behind everything in Indian system. Rather, we must focus on building a society based on love and respect. We must install strong value system in the children since they are little. Once we accomplish this, the rape and crime against women will automatically decrease.
