The India World Report (thanks to Looney Tunes) notes a glaring double standard in the Paper of Record:
“2 killings stoke Kashmir rage at Indian force” is a story New York times printed on front page headline and continued to page 6 taking three-fourth of it.
From the political point of view even the Pakistani administration or terrorists could not expect better. Just one example of how wily is the report – “India and Pakistan have fought two wars over Kashmir ” – this is half truth. Without twist it should read “Pakistan attacked India two times “..each word is crafted against India. However in this article i am just keeping the subject limited to fate of women.
Two women were raped and murdered, which is reprehensible and justice to be served. This two unfortunate deaths made national headlines, paralysed the towns for 50 days by strikes and placed suspension of police personnel and whole state is in a boiling point. Such major protests somehow prove the rarity of such incidents and the full-blown media reports show. The concern of the people and media. So much so it made a headline in nytimes.
Appended below specifics of some recent cases of rape, rape & murder, abduction, & conversion to Islam that happened in Bangladesh ;
Name place date
Anguri Biswas Razoir 2. 7. 09 Madaripur
Radharani Halder Shariatpur 27. 6. 09 Dhaka
Koli Goswami Nandail 13. 6. 09 Mymensingh
Mohana Mondal Bangnna 2. 8. 09 Dhaka
unlike those two unfortunate women in kashmir they got very little coverage in media and the living rape victims have become a laughing stock to the majority muslim people. They are far from any sort of justice. On the contrary, the victims and their family members are under constant threat. Such henious crime against women in bangladesh went unreported in world media or even in the indian media. Whereas the death of two kashmiri muslim women caused ripples in the world to get the headline in ny times.
Details of the fates of all four women follow. Read it all.
