Note to those who are concerned about their honor or their country's honor. Please read the whole damn thing and defend the victims of rape rather than the rapists, work on changing the ugly culture than blaming and banning the film.
India's Daughter is an educational documentary about the ugly mindset of rapists, the filthy misogynists who defend the rapists rather than the victims, and the good majority of Indians who stood up against such atrocities giving hopes to women in India and held rallies.
Venakaiah Naidu, a minister in the current government says, the documentary is made to defame India. To hell with such fame, he has no qualms with the suffering of the woman, but concerned about the fame. We the people make India, and not the other way around.
The Home Minister (~ Homeland Security) says he is hurt with the documentary. Were you not hurt when Damini was raped? You rather have women raped and not reported than being called rape capital of the world. Shame on you for your messed up thinking. You really should resign in shame.
The rapist and his defense lawyers have said "the woman should not have resisted the rape", "it is our culture " "why was she out at 9 PM" Blaming the victim? I have been wanting to write for the last three days since I watched the documentary... but could not get my anger out.
The NDTV ( New Delhi TV) in protest kept their screen with this simple message, a powerful message to send to the nation.
One of the interviewees said it right- the protest and the film brought a major paradigm change in the public - shift the blame to rapist from the victim.It took me two days to gather up myself to write about this, as you read the statements and watch some of the video links you'll be outraged too. Before I touch upon the history of misogyny prevalent through out the history of mankind and by societies regardless of the nation, race, religion or social status, let me go to India first, the current outrage.
