"India's Daughter": Should it be banned?

Updated on March 6, 2015

Why blind eye to the truth?

"A decent girl won't roam around at 9 o'clock at night. A girl is far more responsible for rape than a boy. Boy and girl are not equal.Housework and housekeeping is for girls, not roaming in discos and bars at night doing wrong things, wearing wrong clothes.Had a right to teach them a lesson."

The Government does not want it to be aired just because it might encourage and incite violence against women. Why is the government giving a blind eye to the very fact that even after committing such a horrific act, the convict has no signs of remorse and apology. Aren't these statements enough to declare him as the accused rather than just a "convict"? The court can take sudden action on restraining the world to see the truth, ban the documentary which brings out a whole new face to the Nirbhaya Case, but it can afford to wait to punish the "convict".

Ignoring everything else the issue here stands before the Parliament is that, why permission was granted to the makers of the documentary to interview one of the rapists on death row in the case. This interview shows the actual mindset of not just the victim but many Indian men who still think that women are more responsible for the crimes than men.

There should be debates in the Parliament but not on the issue to ban or air the documentary but to curb these horrific crimes. India has become unsafe not only for the citizens but also for the women who come from other nations. These people who wend off and blame the women for being "indecently dressed", what would we say about those little girls( two or three years old) who are victims to rape. What "Indecency" would we attribute or attach to those babies? The person who is the reason for one of the biggest tragedies in the country is sitting fearless and safe under the custody of the police but the government is afraid to air a "documentary".

The ministers are worried that this documentary would affect the tourism industry in India thereby needing a proper investigation keeping aside the matter which actually demands attention. How can we pass over the reality that the man still shows aggressiveness instead of repent and guilt. His interests are taken to be protected because he was questioned and interviewed making him a celebrity but the innocent soul who left us in 2012 is paid no heed.The government is coming up with a bunch of reasons for not airing it but the true profile needs to be shown to invigorate them with the spirit to fight against crime than to sit back and watch.

      It is very worrying that a concern for tourism is put before the reality of a situation which is horrific and while people find such brutality difficult to look at, turning a blind eye will not make it go away.

      I hope that events like International Women's Day will be used to fight violence against third world women. We need to fight against:

      • FGM

      • Honor killing

      • Strapping bombs to children

      • Enslaving women

      • Murdering homosexuals

      • Child marriage
