Rahul Gandhi weighs in on Asifa case

Rahul Gandhi weighs in on Asifa case

His sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who was also present there, got shoved by some in a chaotic crowd, prompting her to ask people to think about the cause for which they had assembled there.

Congress Delhi chief Ajay Maken, speaking to reporters at India Gate, has reaffirmed that the Congress will lead a march to protest the Unnao and Kathua rapes.

"I only want to say that the atrocities being committed against women, the government should something about it". Numerous supporters protested for the dismissal of the Narendra Modi government from the Centre. The BJP is not only involved directly, it is also protesting in favour of the culprits and stopping law enforcement agencies from doing their job.

Rahul tweeted, "Like millions of Indians my heart hurts tonight". What happened to Asifa at Kathua is a crime against humanity.

"Yogi Adityanath should be immediately removed from UP for failing to protect the women in the state, which was the main promise of BJP during the 2017 Assembly polls", she demanded, wondering how a rapist BJP MLA was continuing in the party.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is making a detour in his multi-country trip to deal with the troubled Kinder Morgan pipeline. Ottawa has jurisdiction over pipeline projects, but a legal challenge on that score would mean more delays.

- The govt is sleeping & so at this time Congress will have to wake them up.

Surjewala said the BJP-PDP government in Jammu and Kashmir failed to give justice to the minor girl raped in Kathua and the BJP government in Uttar Pradesh did not arrest a party legislator accused of rape of girl in Unnao. It can not go unpunished. In Jammu and Kashmir, though the Kathua rape-and-murder incident took place in January this year, the chilling details of the crime emerged in a charge sheet filed by police earlier this week.

"What have we become if we allow #politics to interfere with such unimaginable brutality perpetrated on an innocent child?" he posted on Twitter.

The probe in the Kathua gangrape and murder case has disclosed that the deceased was kidnapped in a temple, drugged, and repeatedly gang-raped, even before her murder to scare the Muslim Bakerwal community to leave the village. Her body was found in the same area a week later and the autopsy revealed she had been sedated and repeatedly raped before her head was bashed in with a stone. The city's bar association has opposed the action against the accused and alleged that minority Dogras were being targeted.
