Another rape case in KeralaAccording to a news report in Kerala, a rape case is registered against Catholic Bishop Franco Mulakkal for molesting a nun since 2014. Four other Church priests are also booked for rape charges. The Bishop is justifying his actions by saying that the incident took place in the year 2014 and the victim is complaining now only! Government is reluctant to take action saying that arresting these Bishops and Priests will create serious law and order problems in Jalandhar, Punjab!
The Christian community in Kerala is a minority. Appeasing minorities is the fundamental policy adopted by Indian National Congress and Left parties since independence. These so-called Bishops are capable of swinging the power in any direction during elections. So, you cannot expect any actions against those Bishops by any Government.
Many rape cases are languishing in various courts in Kerala. Jisha's, Somya's, Abhaya's etc, etc…….the list is endless. Now, Elizabeth, a new name is added to this list. Police are investigating all these case sincerely since years. I saw in a video that the victim, Elizabeth, coming to the camera and saying that she is not expecting justice under Indian law and suggesting that all women/girls should carry Chaku (Knife) while travelling in Kerala as a self-defence measure. Travelling in Kerala with Chaku in handbags may not be practical. People in this state had many discussions, debates, seminars, awareness programmes etc. on the subject many times but seeing no improvements in the situations.
I think, discussing this issue further is a waste of time. My opinion is that all girls between the ages 10 to 25 should undergo military commando training by Indian Army, compulsorily so that they can protect themselves in the case of any eventuality. We are seeing Elite Black Cat Commandos protecting our beloved VIPs. Why can't we provide similar training to all the girls?
