#JusticeforAsifa #Unnao

Rape is rape! Murder is murder! A child is a child! Enough is enough!

This is not about Haryana Or Uttar Pradesh or Jammu and Kashmir. This is not about Hindu rape or .......... rape. This is not even about the BJP or Congress. This is to express great anguish from the Irish Community to the Indian Government over the unjustifiable delay in bringing the perpetrators of this heinous sexual crime to JUSTICE. This is a message to protect and treat its daughters/sisters/mothers in a dignified and fair manner. We want justice, equality and safety to all the women in India.

Little 8yr old Asifa Bano was brutally gang raped and murdered in India. According to the investigators, Asifa was confined in a local temple for several days and given sedatives that kept her unconscious. The charge sheet alleges that she was "raped for days, tortured and then finally murdered". She was strangled to death and then hit on the head twice with a stone. Police have belatedly arrested eight men, including a retired government official, four police officers and a juvenile in connection with Asifa's death. However, Protestors tried to prevent the charges being lodged in the courts, the media is being stymied in its reporting of the crime and many Indian politicians are speaking out in favor of the accused rather than the victim. Many more like Indian Prime Minister Nahendra Modi have inexplicably remained silent.

Will you join us in a peaceful candle light vigil to let Mr Modi know that the world is watching and that justice should prevail for Asifa and all other victims of rape in India?

Many thanks
Ratna
