Raped Nun Denounces Indian Police.

Nun Raped in Orissa India Claims Police Knowingly Failed to Stop Rape

A troubling article from my news feed. The BBC http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/7689215.stmis reporting that Indian Police stood by and did not protect a Roman Catholic Nun who claims she was raped by a mob of Hindu Indians. Worse it appears that in this secular nation to whom the world looks to as the home of peaceful change. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gandhi_Peace_Prize

Apparently India’s Hindu and Catholic population are fighting with Catholics becoming homeless. The New York times reported that Catholics houses are being burned to the ground. Catholics are told to ” convert” or leave the country. The article states that religious leaders ( priests and nuns have been stripped of their clothes and paraded naked before crowds. If,http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/13/world/asia/13india.html?partner=permalink&exprod=permalinks

What is scary about this incident is that the Asian Human Rights Commission warned government officials about gross perhaps criminal conduct by the Police in this region. Nine persons were killed in 2006 during a labor strike http://www.ahrchk.net/ua/mainfile.php/2006/1456/

National Elected Leaders in India must correct this condition or public trust of the police will erode, worse than it already has. Amnesty International is calling for action and reports that the number of Christians who have taken shelter in 25 relief camps run by the state authorities has gone up from 12,000 to 20,000 http://www.amnesty.org.uk/news_details.asp?NewsID=17894

I am shocked that this is going on in a democratic nation, more perplexed that Federal leaders did not intervene.  If the Police won’t protect and serve, the government has failed.

  1. I certainly condemn the rape of any woman. However, I think it is important to point out that the rape of a nun is no more important, or less important, than the rape of any woman.

    I don’t get it. So you mean to say that a woman who has given up everything in her life to serve the poor and needy, deserves a trial as another woman raped out of her inconsideration.

    Here, we claim to be one of the cultured civilizations in the world .. Pathetic !!
