Most of you must be aware of the “guwahati girl’s molestation by mob” case till now,as it is all over the news channels now but the case date backs to 4 days and it was after the video went viral on internet, police authorities have step in and have arrested 4 out of the 30 people which can be clearly seen in the footage.
We all agree what happened was shameful and disgusting at its best and all of you must be filled with anger and frustration against those men ,authority,police and government.And we can go on and on about this.
The video clearly reflects the kind of society we live in, the mentality that is brooding among us,and when I say society each one of us is a part of it.
There were 3 kinds of people on that video the molester,the molester and the molester.
1. The molester who were stripping the girls clothes and beating her up ,dragging her by her hair, the one which we all said was inhuman and must have abused verbally,mentally,commenting about them on youtube that they should be hanged till death,castrate them appears to be general consensus.
But there are others two molesters in that video which only few are talking about…
2. The one who were passing by and didn’t even stopped by seeing a small girl beaten up by 30 men together stripping her on a road that seemed to be a busy one.
3. The local media personnel who was holding the camera and was busy recording the incident and does not bothered to stop from what was happening and went up to the extent of putting up a mike in front of her after the police have reached there and questioning about her identity,her age and where she belong and where she studied.
In my opinion the last two molesters are more of a culprit in this incident then the first and its what we should we worried more about.In no way I am defending the 1st one and saying that what they did was right or normal please don’t get me wrong.But you know these incidents has happened in every society in the past are happening in present times and will continue to happen in future in some depending upon the society’s attitude towards it.Crime will continue to happen until the so called society have the courage to step forward and stop it.
It can be clearly seen in the video how the molesters who are stripping the girl and beating her up are smiling, showing no sign of fear because deep down somewhere they know that so called innocent people will remain a spectator of the whole incident and will not step forward to stop it as they don’t have the courage to do so.Even if a single person have shown some amount of courage that incident would have not happened. We all are collectively responsible as a society for every misdeed that has ever happened or will happen.
We all see such incident in our day to day life of varying degrees but then nobody interferes and its because of this “chalta hai ” attitude that we as a society have reached such a pathetic and brooding state.
It is the society which decides the amount of tolerance for the crime ,corruption ,etc…and every misdeed will continue to rise till the society is ignorant and tolerant of such deeds its we who decide what we are.
