Indian Elders order 10-year-old to be raped in revenge for man beaten up by her father
I’m tolerant. Like, REALLY tolerant. Tolerant to the point that some of my granola crunching, baby-wearing, Birkenstock and hiking sock wearing Seattleite friends roll their eyes. I accept everyone, even if I disagree, and carry on. But this is not a cultural difference- this is child abuse in the worst form.
From the article:
Indian police say a 10-year-old girl has been raped on the orders of a village chief ‘as punishment’ after her father beat up a neighbour who broke into his house.
According to reports, the girl’s father attacked his 25-year-old neighbour after the man broke into his house drunk at around midnight and tried to molest his wife.
The next day, the battered and bruised neighbour reported the ‘assault’ to elders in his village in eastern India’s Bokaro district – and they permitted him to rape the girl as revenge.
Seems legit for some dude to drag my daughter off into the bushes and rape her, and have her found in a pool of blood. Why does this still happen in the world? This is a child. Only a coward would even accept this kind of “revenge” as his just deserts. Animal.
