Molestation by mob is increasing.
For the reporter it is more important to film the event than to save the girl!
Th Media’s deafening silence on the reporter’s action of Filming the incident instead of helping the victim is strange.
It is the Independent that has highlighted this issue.
If the media which is staffed by the educated(presumably)and the socially conscious is silent, how is it that Sex education is going to solve the problem, when normal education does not kindle the human quality of Compassion?
SCENES captured on film by a television journalist of a mob molesting and stripping a teenage girl in a city in north-easternIndia have triggered outrage across the country.
Many people are demanding to know why the journalist filmed the 30-minute assault, rather than trying to help the young woman.
At least four men have been arrested by police in the aftermath of the attack on a 17-year-old fashion student.
Officers said they were able to identify a number of the alleged participants from the footage that was broadcast on television and subsequently uploaded on to the internet.
The media channel has defended the actions of its staff.
The incident in the city of Guwahati has again highlighted the dangers and threats often faced by women in India, a nation where sexual harassment is often referred to by the media as ‘Eve-teasing’.
Yesterday, television channels repeatedly broadcast the footage of the beating and assault of the young woman, said to have taken place after she had been celebrating a friend’s birthday in a bar.”
I am of the opinion that the absence of swift deterrent punishment and erosion of moral values as the reason for the type of roguish behavior.
Unless we address this problem , we would be like the economists who blabber on economy where no results would be forth coming sans sound bites.
“A teenaged girl was pulled by her hair, lifted up, thrown down, beaten up, thrashed, molested, groped, slapped and stripped in full public view for 30 minutes on Monday night at a busy road near the Christian Basti area in Guwahati by a mob of around 20 men.
I am beginning to think if my family is atall safe in this country. It is hu some xpert saying lack of Sexrting to see a teenager to be treated in this manner.The video of the incident that was leaked on YouTube, shows the mob – consisting of around 20 men – beating the girl before stripping her.
Its a shameful act from the city which was known for tolerance.
