Ask @PMOIndia: Can Violent Cops Stop #Violence on #Women? #DelhiRapeProtests

April 28, 2013

Ask the Indian Prime Minister: Does he know why the crowds protesting the gang-rape of a 5 year old child in Delhi are so angry with his government? 

Please join us in our demand the PM immediately fire the Delhi Police Chief, Neeraj Kumar, by signing our petition below.

women beating_vivid times_zThe rape of child is heinous! The fact that the government’s own data shows that one in every two children in India is sexually abused in some way is even more angering.

But ask what the public in India now is starting to ask more and more loudly: Can a corrupt and violent police force control or stop rape and other forms of violence against girls and women — violence that has now reached epidemic proportions in India?

Can women and girls in India ever feel safe when the guardians of law and order function this way? Is it any wonder that in 20 years 20% of women in India will have been violently exterminated?

 Police beat up rape victims’ family and supporters

Police rape and sexually torture minor girls in an orphanage

 Police protects the rapist son of a fellow police officer

 Police beat up a woman trying to file a sexual harassment complaint

Police harass, humiliate and try to botch up a rape victim’s complaint

 Police help politicians accused of rape evade justice

Police allow rapists to hunt down and kill victims

 Police allow rapists to roam free and harass and threaten victims

 Police are complicit in the killing of women in their own family for dowry

  Police themselves commit dowry extortion and violence

Early in 2013, in a landmark report by the Justice Verma Committee on violence on women in India, one of the most critical recommendations was for police reform. [Click here for the report] In subsequent interviews Justice Verma spoke extensively about apathy and corruption in the police force.  He also said that the Committee thought the Delhi Police Commissioner, Neeraj Kumar’s commanding of the police, and their violent treatment of unarmed protestors during the December rape protests was unacceptable and he should be made to resign!

The government chose to completely ignore the Verma Committee’s stand on the Indian police force and on Neeraj Kumar.

 2012-12-22T140013Z_1_CDEE8BL12WH00_RTROPTP_2_INDIA-PROTESTSOnce again this month when a 5-year-old girl was brutally gang raped in Delhi, the police refused to act on the case, and later tried to squash the rape report. Then they beat up female protestors!!  And Neeraj Kumar, in his capacity as Delhi Police Chief said he was satisfied with how his police force functions and that he sees no need to take personal or “moral responsibility!”

The police in India today have become the private guard dogs of powerful politicians who in turn use them to inflict terror and violence on a powerless public! THIS IS THE HALLMARK OF A TOTALITARIAN REGIME!! 

The people who are out on the streets of Delhi and the public all over Indian have had enough! They don’t want to allow this anymore!

The Prime Minister must immediately fire Delhi Police Chief, Neeraj Kumar and set a precedent for the police and the system of law and order for the rest of India!

Please add your voice to this growing public demand for Neeraj Kumar’s immediate dismissal by signing our petition.

    Police Reforms needs to be Urgent… The bureaucrats need to rethink of nation building issues. The sensitivity towards human beings is lacking in Police Personnels. They who are educated are enjoying their Public Offices who those are less literates are governing the Public at large. The Govt. is apathetic towards citizens… they are busy in gripping techniques of public politically. The common man is fighting in anxiety on roads and thru various platforms. Our moral education what we studied before 30-40 year’s back are missing from Primary books. The pseudo secularism has replaced the ethical values of our nations in syllabus of primary educations. The CBSE and NCERT’s are big institutions and are busy in enjyoing the funds and collaborating in foreigns too. The govt. issues secret guidelines to the public offices and tells them what to do and what not? it’s unfortunate for the patriotic citizens of nation to survive in such degradating scenario of moral values!

      Sensitivity is the last step! A police force that is corrupt and violent has bigger problems first with both discipline and professionalism. The job of the police is to uphold the Constitution of India. When the police violates the Constitution they become a part of the system of violence and subvert the law. So how can they hold up the law? India has had many traditional practices for centuries that inflict violence on girls and women — like female infanticide, sati etc. For India to become a modern and mature democracy, it will have to have the courage and honesty to realize that change will come not blaming others but take responsibility for its own corrupt systems and mind-set.

    Even if we don’t live in India or in places affected by these crimes and practices, we should stand up to the Perps that hurt these Human Beings and help the victims of these crimes get Justice and we should help these women to feel safe, we should help these children and Infants feel safe and to make them safe if they aren’t safe. Please help spread awareness and help to prevent these incidents.
