I came across this news story recently and was appalled and disgusted that
Men in India have so little respect for the women there that they would
see rape as justifiable punishment.
The sisters were sentenced by elders of a village council to be raped
after their brother had an affair and ran off with a married woman.
For women in India rape is a part of their culture and rapes occur daily.
After much protest in India and the intervention of Amnesty International
the village council has since denied making the ruling.
The question still remains, how long will the Government of India
continue to allow women to be raped, abused and murdered without
doing anything to protect them.
