Change mindset? Really?

For a moment let’s forget the rapes of 20-30 year old women!

Explain to me, how do you plan to change the mindset of that man who abused his 6-year-old daughter for 1 and half-year and invited his friends to do the same? Tell me, how do you plan to change the mindset of that man who raped his friend’s daughter who was again, a 6-year-old?

A 20-year-old student was raped in a moving bus and beaten with an iron rod for 45 minutes along with her male friend and then thrown out in a semi-naked state and you all are talking about changing mindset?

You really need to wake up!

Do you think these people who commit a crime so heinous as rape, care for your “educated rant” about changing mindset?

Are you all really that naive to think that any amount of education, exposure to rights, human values, etc will change the attitude and thinking of such men? No, seriously?

These men have become fearless. And in their fearlessness, they have forgotten everything that is there to humanity and emotions of others. This absence of fear has made them blind. And fear is what can control them. They need to be taught a lesson. A lesson so frightening, so gut wrenching, so much more humiliating than the very crime that they commit, that others won’t even dare to so much as even think of raping or even passing a vulgar line to another woman.

Because trust me, no amount of lecture, social education, attempts to change mindset is going to do any good. You can’t inspire them to become someone they are not. So shut the f**k up. Because they simply don’t care. But what we can do is make them fear. And that can only happen when these men are caught and shot in their d***s in full public view and then are left there to die a death they never thought they would get for their heinous act!

Fear, my educated friends, and only fear will drive them to keep their d***s under control.

And NO, it’s not an eye for an eye kind of justice. In fact, it is not justice at all. It’s wrong. It’s unethical. And it should not be done. But, it has to be done in order to put a leash on such people. It must be done in order to prevent another pervert from even daring to think of committing rape in future. It must be done in order to make this country safe for women. It MUST be done in order to STOP RAPE!

  1. Absolutely Agree with this opinion piece. The time to be civil and expect Rehabilitation is long gone. Such incidents need to be dealt with an proportionate severity. Changing mindset is for humans. These barbarians are no better than the worst scavenging animals. They deserve to be threatened, tortured, and bestowed with every kind of inhuman torture to strike fear in the heart of them and everyone who shows an affinity to walk down this monstrous road.

    I agree 100% with what you have to say here. Yes, this absolute fearlessness is one main reason why rape is increasingly becoming so very common in every part of the country. This so-called fear has to come from the law. But, unfortunately, the law ain’t strong even to deter this impotents from taking this disastrous step. The girl who was raped yesterday is struggling with her life. And, going by the way, even children as young as 6 or 7 are being raped, its certainly the biggest cause of concern right now!

      This opinion is a perfect example of what is going on in the people’s mind. An absolute punishment for rape……the society needs it.

    I would suggest we cut their dicks off. Slowly. Surgically. Sadistically. Makes more sense aesthetically and saves the cost of the bullet.

  4. I agree. Changing mindset is not the issue. Executing severe punishment without delay is the only deterrent.

  5. Anu says:

    While I completely agree with the sentiments being expressed here, my worry is that just implementing harsher punishments is not going to solve the problem. The need of the hour is to ensure certainty of conviction for perpetrators of such heinous crimes and also to ensure that police investigations are effective and swift. The police need to create a national database of criminals convicted of rape crimes so that they cannot run away to another part of the country and live as though they are innocent. It’s time to agitate for meaningful reform that ensures punishment of the guilty.

    only fear can make them control their d***s. Well said.

  7. leifu says:

    I agree with the idea that changing there minds will do nothing and is basically impossible and i totally understand the idea of fear and pain being put into this, but if were talking about both genders, would there be a difference of punishment? how would it differ?
