Shame!

Posted: April 16, 2018
I condemn the rape of any human being. If you choose to side with the culprits, you are also a rapist. 
As a female ?
As a mother ?
As an Indian?
NO
As a human being I condemn rape.
Not of a little girl
Not of a woman
Not of a Muslim
Not of a Hindu
I condemn rape of another human being.
If you dont
If you find “reasons”
If you choose to side with the culprits
You are also a rapist.
If you bring religion
If you bring politics
If you bring nations to “justify” the act
Then, you dont belong to any of the above
The pain
The anguish
The agony
If you dont feel it
If you choose to ignore it
If you have the heart to brush it aside
Then be prepared
For maybe, probably
Someday
No one would be there to feel your pain
Your misery
Your agony
For humanity would be long dead
And you would have played a part in killing it.
