On the Night of December 16--coming home from watching a movie at the New Delhi Mall, a 23-year old woman was savagely gang-raped and her male companion, who tried to defend her, was beaten while on a bus being driven around the Indian capital for 45 minutes!
I iust want to stand with those protesting against the barbarism of the people who brutally gang-raped, tortured, and grotesquely inserted a metal rod inside her, causing her such bodily damage that even a team of eight specialists at Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore that specializes in multi-organ transplants, could not save her.
The woman had such severe internal injuries that most of her intestines had to be removed, and according to CBC News, she suffered from organ failure, a lung infection, as well as brain damage.
After the rape, torture, and beatings, the victims were stripped and thrown off the moving bus.
It is sick and evil that the driver not only stood idly by and did nothing to help her, but has been charged as well in the actual rape!
I am deeply saddened not only by the gang rape, but also according to the Daily Times that they happen with such frequency that they are "rarely [even] reported in the Indian press."
This is another wake up call for people of good conscience to stand against those that commit evil and to not be silent in the face of such atrocities.
The cries of this woman, and other victims of violence like her, can be heard throughout the world.
She will not be forgotten, and to those savages may justice be done--in this world or the next by the all-mighty G-d who hears our prayers.
