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.

    This is so awful and this is upsetting. Rape is never justifiable and is appalling!
