New Delhi rapist on victim: ‘She should just be silent and allow rape’

The father the New Delhi gang rape victim called for the immediate execution of the convicted rapists after one of them blamed the dead woman.

Mukesh Singh, a bus driver, was one of five men convicted in the 2012 gang rape case and sentenced to death by hanging. He and three others are appealing the sentence. Singh showed no remorse, for what he dubbed “an accident” that occurred on December 2012 to a BBC Storyville documentary crew.

“A decent girl won’t roam around at 9 o’clock at night,” he told the BBC. “A girl is far more responsible for rape than a boy. Boy and girl are not equal.

“Housework and housekeeping is for girls, not roaming in discos and bars at night doing wrong things, wearing wrong clothes.”

He suggested that they “had a right to teach them a lesson.”

The father of the girl, known as Nirbhyaya, told CNN he had read Singh’s comments.

Uprising

Despite the challenges facing women in India, Udwin acknowledges the efforts and the masses of both men and women who are demanding change in India’s gender dynamics and equality for women.

“Their courage and determination to be heard was extraordinarily inspiring,” she writes.

The documentary will release on on International Women’s Day on Sunday.
