India Gang Rape Victim Cremated After Funeral

Gang Rape Victim Cremated

The body of a woman who was gang raped and beaten on a bus in India’s capital has been cremated amid protests and mourning in the country.

The woman’s body has been cremated in a private ceremony soon after it arrived on a special Air India flight from Singapore.

Al Jazeera reports that the 23-year-old woman died on Saturday after she was sent to Singapore for medical treatment. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, along with head of the ruling Congress party, Sonia Gandhi, were present at the airport when her body arrived.

They also met with the victim’s family members, who arrived on the flight as well. Indian police charged six men who have been taken into custody over the woman’s gang rape and beating. They charged the men with murder, as well as rape and several other charges stemming from the case.

After her rape on December 16, the woman was taken to Singapore’s Mount Elizabeth hospital, because it specializes in multi-organ transplants. She stayed in critical condition until she took a turn for the worse and passed away.

Fox News adds that thousands of Indians mourned the woman’s death, lighting candles, holding prayer meetings, and marching through cities and towns to express their grief. They also demanded stronger protection for women and the death penalty for rape, which is currently punishable by life in prison.

Women face harassment across India from catcalls to groping and touching and even rape. The tragedy appears to be a catalyst for change in the country with law enforcement and the government forced to confront the very real issue that sexually assaulted women are often blamed for the crime.

They are discouraged from reporting it out of fear that they will expose their families to ridicule. Police also often refuse to accept complaints when the women are brave enough to report them. Prime Minister Singh has assured that this time the young woman’s death will not be in vain.

    DECEMBER 29, 2012: RAW has used the gang rape of the 23-year old Delhi girl and countrywide outrage to divert attention from my press releases this month about the "Anglo-American enforcement of their ownership of India", from the killing of over ten million Indians in just the ten years after 1857 by the British to enforce their will to the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan to drone attacks on Pakistan to the trafficking of Indian children to be used as food — RAWsTraffickingOfIndianChildrenDOTblogspotDOTcom — and the total possession and rape of India by the Anglo-Americans and their white friends in economic, military and all spheres with CIA's rule over India via RAW that I have described at WhatYouShouldKnowAboutRAWDOTblogspotDOTcom. Like keeping Indians and Pakistanis fighting each other rather than their white oppressors, this is meant to keep Indians focused on rapes of Indians by Indians and not on their incomparably more violent rape and domination by the white countries and all the Indians participating in this RAW-sponsored event are participating in the enforcement of Anglo-American ownership of India, in the rape of India.

    In service of its white masters RAW has committed innumerable terrorist acts in India taking part even in the Mumbai attack of 2008, carried out train accidents killing hundreds in each incident, sabotage of India's defence equipment, spreading AIDS in India to provide the white countries a population of guinea pigs for vaccine development, murders including those of Indira and Rajiv Gandhi, etc., etc. The minor who has been arrested at first was reported to have assaulted only the victim's male friend but not taken part in the rape but later was assigned the responsibility for, by himself, having mutilated her intestines and other internal organs with an iron rod, because a minor can get away with confinement in a juvenile facility for a couple of years no matter what the crime. These may have been RAW operatives who committed the crime. There were no reports of the serious injuries to the victim's internal organs until about two days after she had been admitted to the hospital. The injuries to her internal organs may have been inflicted on her by a member of the hospital staff at RAW's behest, even under the pretext of doing surgery, or by a RAW operative who gained access to her after she had been admitted to the hospital.
