Follow Islamic Measures To Combat Rapes

In the wake of the brutal gang-rape of a 23-year-old girl in Delhi, platitudes are being mouthed by politicians and people. But the only way to deal with the potentially pervert rapists is to promulgate the Sharia, which is followed in Saudia Arabia. Rapists are either bobbitised or beheaded. Agreed, it sounds brutal to kill a person, however lowly he may be. But the man who has not just destroyed a woman’s life and modesty but also rendered her vulnerable till death, must be punished in an exemplary manner.

A few months back, a video clip went viral. Five rapists in Iran, who raped and beheaded a girl were publicly hanged. It wasn’t a morphed clip and people all over the world witnessed the summary treatment meted out to the scoundrels. Why can’t and shouldn’t the same happen in this ‘soft country’? Look at the crime rate of Saudi Arabia. It shows that such severe punishments preclude criminals from indulging in heinous acts of barbarism.

Had Sharia  or anything of that sort been followed in this country, so many rapists who raped Muslim women during Gujarat carnage would have been hanged in public.
