no, they are not christist or mohammedan taliban, of course not. no, renuka chowdhury is not upset. nor is the ELM. nehrudynastyTV did not have live TV coverage
the courts have announced their guilty verdict in the 2005 gang rape-torture-ragging of a 1st year nursing student at SME college of nursing in kottayam, kerala. under the pretext of ragging, she was terrorized, drugged, forced to go to an isolated lab, and gang-raped, by six 3rd year students.
here are the sections under which the convicted have been found guilty:
1. gang rape 376-2
2. aiding and abetting a rape
3. procuring a woman for sexual purposes 366
4. sex with an under-age woman (which i suppose is statutory rape) 366a
5. molestation and outraging the modesty of a woman 354
6. illegal confinement 342
7. death threats and criminal intimidation 506
8. violating anti-ragging provisions
9. administration of psycho-tropic substances
the first two accused have been given 10 years hard labor.
the third accused has been given 3 years hard labor.
now let us take a look a the names of the convicted and the accused:
1. renjith varghese (christist)
2. sherin shamsuddin (mohammedan)
3. shafiq yusuf (mohammedan)
4. ashly verghese (christist)
5. robin paul (christist)
6. divin philip (christist)
the above, all students, participated in the rape. all but the first three have been acquitted.
the following tried to sweep it under a carpet:
7. former principal k m mariam (christist)
8. former director muraleedharan nair (hindu)
9. saibunnisa beevi, a psychiatrist (mohammedan)
these people have been charged with
a. criminal conspiracy
b. destruction of evidence
c. misleading the police
d. forging documents
i think they have all been let go.
i don't remember if the name of the raped girl was ever revealed, but this being pseudo-secular kerala, the chances are pretty good that the girl is a hindu. after all, everything hindu is public property in kerala.
in a separate incident, in ambalapuzha, kerala, two hindu and one christist high school girls committed suicide a few weeks ago following their friendship with some "friends". lo and behold, consider the mobile phone which had the videos of the girls having consensual sex or being raped -- turns out the SIM card has been erased! lo, how timely and divine an intervention, just like valson thampu's phd that arrived in the mail just in time. lo, a miracle, indeed!
the accused "friends" are shanavas and zaufar (both mohammedans). they used to use their mobiles as well as those belonging to two others.
we should all go and study the sections in the holy books relating to the use of conquered women.
where is john dayal, though, i wonder? what, and ratzy is not upset? surely, renuka chowdhury and shabana azmi are shrieking on tv about taliban and discrimination against mohammedans? shabana is probably really upset that no mohammedan girls are included in the victim list.
and where is the telecom minister? let us ban all phones with video cameras! yeah, that's the ticket.
