A young woman, fresh college graduate succumbed to death recently (2019) in Kolkata (India) after she was shot point blank by a man who showed ‘love’ interest to her and she said ‘no’.
He didn’t like the rejection and after the arrest, showed no remorse while confessing to police later. News of this kind is very common from most of other places of the country too, to even surprise people. In a nation where many Goddesses are worshiped with celebrations, where lady chief ministers, prime minister or a president are not uncommon and the women are doing all kinds of jobs equally, the implementation of justice is incredibly poor for ever rising crimes against women. A bullet, a knife , a bottle of acid on face or rape are the presents a woman might receive in India when they protest their predators. The pretentious society worshiping women cannot protect them. How come?
