    This from a nation that calls itself civilized, nearly 25,000 such murders in just three years. These people are worse than animals.

    'Kerala priest raped, because temptations', church-backed magazine resorts to victim blaming

    Church-backed magazine blames minor for not 'stopping' the rape saying priest is a human being and has 'temptations'.


    [​IMG]

    Consumerism and temptations" are the reasons why a 16-year-old girl from Kerala got raped. As much absurd this sounds, these are the reasons given by a magazine backed by a Catholic Sabha, resorting to openly blaming and shaming the rape survivor, a minor.

    People behind the magazine forgot she DID NOT ASK FOR IT and NO-ONE ASKS FOR IT.


    Father Robin or Mathew Vadakkancheril of St Sebastian church in Kannur, Kerala was accused of raping and impregnating a minor. He fled the scene, but was arrested for the heinous crime.

    The minor was raped several times before she got pregnant. After she delivered the child at a private hospital, the newborn was taken to an orphanage without informing the girl.

    But Sunday Shalom, a Christian weekly, said that the rape could have been stopped by the minor. The weekly said, "Here, the girl is above the age of 15. Let me tell you this, as I consider you like my daughter - you are also at fault. Before the Lord, it is you who will have to answer first. Daughter, why did you forget who a priest is? He has a human body and has temptations. He may have forgotten his position for a few seconds, my child who has taken the Holy Communion, why didn't you stop or correct him?"

    Let us remind and would ask all those who are reading this to repeat after us - NO ONE ASKS FOR RAPE.
    Eight people are involved in the case including five nuns, a doctor and a helper, along with the prime accused Father Robin for hiding the facts and helping in the delivery.

    But this is not the only absurd and illogical remark that was given out regarding the survivor. According to Father Paul Thelekat of the Bishops' Council, "consumerism" is a reason behind rapes.

    He told The News Minute in response to a query, "consumerism is indeed a situation affecting everyone in the world and priests are also in the world. It is in celibacy and in virginity the crisis become apparent first, then it will become a crisis of fidelity in marriage with extra-marital and premarital sex. Women are presented as commodity both in media and in advertisements and all commodities are marketed with girls and women where human body is dehumanised."

    Also saying 'not all priests' are like Father Robin, Father Paul said, "in India there are 19,946 catholic priests and in Kerala, there are 9,033 of them. What we discuss is a case of failure of a small minority in living the lofty ideal of celibacy. The fact it is a minority does not make the sin and crime minor. The very fact that it gets news value is that it is an exception and a fall from the ideal."

    Also read: Kerala priest says women wearing jeans, T-shirt arouse men, wants them drowned in the sea

    Although, the church is assuring that it stands tall with the rape survivor and her family, it's disheartening to see how these cases are brushed under the carpet as many involved in such cases are individuals holding great power.

    From a father who thinks women wearing jeans should die to another one who condemned crimes against children on TV but goes on to rape a minor, these priests being referred to as 'fathers' is an irony.

    Women wearing jeans, T-shirts should be drowned, says Kerala catholic priest in sermon

    A video posted on Facebook by user Jasmine PK shows a Kerala priest identified as Sharlo, in an address, saying that women who arouse men by wearing exposing clothes should be drowned in the sea with rocks tied to their bodies.

    "When I go for prayer meetings in some churches, especially during the Holy Mass, I feel like leaving because of some women who I see in front of me. I feel it's better to kick them out of the church premises," he says.

    Kind of sounds like fake news, but there are Christian Cults that are quite weird. Jim Jones is a good example.

    9000 odd catholic priests in Kerala, lot of Potential for having more victims
    It is strange when head of religion sect blames the minor girl of tempting rape. Did she asked to get raped?
    I think this matter should be taken seriously by the central govt and put this child rapist behind bar, and also seems a lot of this stuff is happening in church and not limited only to girls but also with boys. So even the priests have temptation with boys which catholic church is stating it s UNNATURAL? If I remember correctly, Cathotic church was against gays and lesbians and for decades the representatives of their chuch have been resorting to those vile things?
    It is truly a way of "Do what I say, dont do what I do " Hippocrites

    One more question, why did the priest not find the nuns tempting? Or was it like "... been there, done that ... " ?

    This female IPS officer has killed 16 and arrested 64 terrorists in 15 months

    As the entire country fights corruption and terrorism these days, the efforts of many dedicated female police officers have come to light. Known as the Iron Lady of Assam, Sanjukta Parashar is one such IPS officer who is making headlines for her commendable work and bravery.

    [​IMG]
    Image Source: Social Media
    Sanjukta, who is the first woman to be have been appointed as an IPS officer in Assam, has arrested over 64 militants in the last 15 months and set an example for others.

    Sanjukta completed her early education in Assam and went to Indraprastha University for a graduation degree in Political Science. She later did her PhD from Jawaharlal Nehru University. Sanjukta has keen interest in sports since she was a child and has won many awards.

    Even while she was in school, Sanjukta was extremely worried about the increasing corruption and terror in Assam; hence, she decided to stay back in her state and work towards these issues despite getting a good rank. She was first sent to Makum, Assam, in 2008, as an Assistant Commandant. However, soon she was transferred to Udalguri in Assam to manage the communal violence between Bodo and illegal Bangladeshi militants. Within 15 months of conducting her operation, she killed nearly 16 militants and arrested 64 of them.

    Mother of a four-year-old, Sanjukta recently started an operation in which she jumped into the field herself with the AK47 rifle. In the past few years, she has dedicated herself completely to the Anti-Bodo Militant Operations.

    Many a time, Sanjukta goes to relief camps to be with distressed people who have lost their family or house in militant attacks. She is able to spend time with her husband and family only once in two months. The dedication and courage exhibited by Sanjukta to fight terrorism and corruption is exemplary and respectworthy.

    Woman Raped In Broad Daylight Near Busy Vizag Road. No One Helped
    An auto-driver recorded the crime, in which the drunk man rapes the woman in Andhra Pradesh's Visakhapatnam, on his phone and handed it over to the police

    Vizag Rape Case: The 20-year-old attacker Ganji Siva was allegedly drunk and has been arrested.

    NEW DELHI:
    HIGHLIGHTS
    1. Woman was raped on pavement in full public view in Andhra's Visakhapatnam
    2. People are seen walking past while the woman is being assaulted
    3. Crime was recorded by auto-driver, he later informed the police

    A woman is raped on a pavement in full public view but no one helps her, in a stomach-turning video that has emerged from Andhra Pradesh's Visakhapatnam. The 21-year-old rapist seen in the video, Ganji Siva, was allegedly drunk. He has been arrested.

    An auto-driver recorded the crime, which took place on Sunday afternoon, and called the police.

    The woman was apparently sitting next to a tree on the footpath near the Railway colony -- which is one of the busier areas of the city -- when the man forced himself on her.

    "The statements given by both were incoherent and inconsistent," said police officer Madhusudanamurthy.

    In the video, people are seen walking past while the woman is being assaulted. One man seems to abruptly change course.

    Activists say the auto-rickshaw driver could have helped the woman instead of filming the assault, even though his video helped the police arrest the rapist.

    The oft repeated statement of mine holds - 95% Indians are idiots. And members here take an offence when I say this. What smartness or intelligence is displayed here by scores of people who just walked by as a woman was sexually assaulted in broad day light? What smartness or intelligence is displayed by the autorickshaw driver who made a video instead of defending the honour of the lady?

    Hang both of them at the minimum, and send those who can be identified as having witnessed and walked away to prison for life!! Bastards all of them
