Woman assaulted, paraded naked by 6

ALIGARH: A woman has charged six persons, including district BSP president, of assaulting and later parading her naked in a market following which a case has been registered against them by the police.

A case of assault against six persons, including the BSP leader Moolchand Bhagel, has been filed, Superintendent of Police Maan Singh Chouhan said.

He, however, said the woman was not paraded naked. The incident took place on June 2 when 45-year-old Brima Devi had a minor tiff with some persons while she was on her way back from a temple. She was then beaten up.

She alleged in her complaint to police that she was also paraded naked through the village Chandaukha, 20 kms from here.

Bir Singh, husband of Brima Devi, alleged that the police was trying to dilute the charges against the BSP leader because of political pressure.

The woman was detained by the police for a few hours in connection with some case. She was, however, let off later.

“Instead of arresting the persons named in the report, the police has arrested Devi on a case filed against her by a group ten days back,” Singh alleged.

But what can you and me do to stop crimes like this? I have no idea.. Are we damn sure that this is not going to happen to you and me,since we pretend ourselves to be equipped with sophisticated living conditions? Is it really so?

Invading the exposed privacy..

What did I say now?

Last evening,way back from my college,while in local bus,I saw a lady,a working lady , entering the bus and standing in a horizontal position,such that,some of her body parts,to be precise,her side view,was being watched over by looooot of men sitting and standing behind. some of them were laughing,some of the were staring and some of them grinning. I felt bad and ashamed.Why? I don’t know..Afterall,she is a fellow women.But there was nothing that I could do. Can I tell her ” Hello madam,please keep your body parts covered,people are raping you with their eyes”. I didn’t say that,because I had no wish to get a slap.

Today evening,incidentally,the very same bus,the very same time,the very same lady,the very same stop and very same saree and yes,very same side view,and finally,the very same looks when I turned back. I wanted to say something,but to whom? To the lady,to stand ‘properly’ ?Or to those men,to eyes their eyes closed? What if one of them took a photo and posted it in one of those infinite masala sites out there? Who is responsible? The lady ,for not taking care? Or the man, who just took a snap of what was publicly displayed in front of him?

I asked these questions to a dear and near one of mine.He/she said,” Obviously,the lady is not responsible”

Me :How? she was unaware.She just stood her own way.

He/she :Fine,it is her freedom of expression and the guy sitting in the back is exercising his freedom of expression.Do you have a problem with that?

Me : 🙄

Edited to add :Somebody tells me that this post is dumb and silly and is borne out of my boredom and lack of ability to post something good. I don’t think so.This is as issue I deal with,every day,every other moment.. I see guys looking at women’s here and there,while in class,while on road,while in bus,everywhere..So,how is this a dumb matter,well,it is not so atleast for me.
