Delhi gang-rape victim's boyfriend speaks out

NEW DELHI: The boyfriend of a 23-year-old woman who died after a brutal gang rape on a New Delhi bus spoke out Friday for the first time about the savage attack that has sparked protests across the nation and his own trauma over his inability to save her. The 28-year-old man, who suffered a fractured leg and other injuries in the attack, has been deeply traumatised and is currently at his parents' home in rural northern India where he is taking time out from his job at a software firm in New Delhi. "What can I say? The cruelty I saw should not be seen ever. I tried to fight against the men but later I begged them again and again to leave her," he told AFP in an interview by phone from Gorakhpur, a town in Uttar Pradesh state. On December 16, the couple had been out to watch a movie and decided to get into a private bus when several rickshaws had refused to drive them back ...

    If any Indian does and has done any of the following he or she is a party to the rapes and murders of women in India:

    4. Follow extreme superstitions; follow miracle makers or middlemen to God called swamis, sadhus,
    5. Still follow the caste and class system,
    6. Have a false sense of cultural superiority over societies of other nations - especially western
    7. Not have self-respect and self-esteem and play crony to political leaders
    8. Worship people, make large self promoting big picture birthday hoardings by street sides,
    9. Think police and judges are on their side
    10. Believe Indian media is independent
    11. Elect immoral and corrupt leaders, support bad political dynasties
    12. Not vote
    13. Be meek, afraid, docile and avoid confrontation, refuse to help others

    The saddest part is that the do-nothing and weak middle class will go back to their homes and into hibernation and will not come out for any social cause and help any one for a long time.

    The whole of India is screaming out loud for hanging the 6 rapists for their atrocious crime but what they do not realize that they have been responsible for creating and growing a culture that mistreats women every day. India is culturally closer to Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Somalia.

    If any Indian does and has done any of the following he or she is a party to the rapes and murders of women in India:

    1. Follow primitive cultural traditions and practices which are full of mistreatment of women such as dowry, bride harassment, infanticide, bride burning, daughter in-law harassment, refusing education to girls, girl teasing, groping on public buses,

    2. Follow religious scriptures full with bad role models, behavior and examples - Lord Krishna teased girls and Lord Rama's wife finally committed suicide after he refused to accept her as moral and pure wife after exile,

    3. Teach children about bad role models and set bad examples at home, discriminate daughters against boys
