Rape in Delhi - Statement of Tapan Ghosh of Hindu Samhati

The surge in public opinion against the despicable gang rape of a 23 year old medical student could well have been a turning point in the campaign for women’s right in the National Capital Region of Delhi and also in India. I have always been a staunch believer in the positive role the youth has to play in the overall prosperity of a nation. Historically, our founding fathers from Swami Vivekananda to Dr. Keshav Hedgewar have realized the potential of the youth and had heavily relied on the younger generation to carry the flag of their ideology. A tremendous surge of hope ran through my nerves when I saw thousands of youths protesting on the streets of Delhi against the rising crimes against women and demanding stringent law against the perpetrators. I must proudly acknowledge my highest esteem and full faith in their honesty, devotion and determination for a better future.
However, I am pained to see a lack of vision and leadership in their campaign. Unfortunately, with many youth movements, this one too might end up not achieving a difference because they started off leaderless which left the movement rudderless. And in the ensuing chaos, the movement might be hijacked by opportunist politicians and self-styled human right activists seeking attention and undue mileage.
I wish the movement made some concrete demands. For example, First Information Reports for any complain is often done on a piece of paper that can easily be discarded upon political pressure. By demanding mandatory registration of all GDEs & FIRs through computers that would be linked to a national grid, the protestors could have made a real difference on the streets of the National Capital Region and help remove the ignominy of Delhi as the rape capital of India.

Hindu Samhati regularly monitors and reports violations against Hindus in West Bengal. We also work with both governmental and NGO agencies for proper education on protection and ensure remedies to the Hindu populace as per prevailing law of the land.
