AAP Report on crimes against women in UP

A status report on crimes against women in Uttar Pradesh prepared by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders, Shefali Misra and Hema Badhwar Mehra (party’s Lok Sabha candidates from Sitapur and Badaun constituencies in UP, respectively), has been presented to the AAP national convenor, Arvind Kejriwal. Receiving the report, he condemned the increasing violence against women, calling the situation a “gross neglect of basic human rights.”  

Kejriwal asked for a serious review of women’s situation in the country, expressing that, “The mandate to stop violence is a responsibility each one of us now needs to take.” He further added that, “the state has failed in its endeavour to protect women’s rights. It is time that each citizen expresses anguish and anger and lets the law makers and implementers know that violence must stop.”

Dowry victim Neha succumbs to injuries

Neha's case is a sordid tale of policy apathy, insensitivity and police callousness . She was being tortured by her husband and in-laws (in Indra Park, Sagarpur, West Delhi) but the police chose to turn a blind eye to her repeated complaints resulting into the gruesome incident of her being burnt by her husband and in-laws on January 13, but even this could not move the callous police.

Save Our Women

This piece brings out the details of the gory incident of rape & murder in Badayun, UP. 

This is the result of a systemic rot. It has happened before –maybe not in this defiant and intrusive way that challenged everything that existed, mocked every law ever made – but it has happened and it will continue to happen unless the caste divide disappears, unless laws change, unless education imparts what it is meant to impart, unless politicians care enough, unless men are sensitised, unless our rural areas begin to permeate into the active conscience of a society consisting of people like us who think that it is made only for us and till as such time as we see all of India as one, without this great divide and understand at a seminal level that this country belongs, in equal measure, to all of its citizens, at all times.

Letter to Sonia Gandhi

Aam Aadmi Party national convenor and former Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has written a letter to the Congress President Mrs Sonia Gandhi. Kejriwal has drawn Mrs Gandhi's attention to the plight of four minor dalit rape victims of Bhagana village (Hisar district), Haryana.
 
These victims have been sitting on dharna along with their families at Jantar Mantar since April 16. These victims have not only undergone the worst inhuman trauma, but their families and relatives have been chased away from their village and they have no shelter now.
 
The state Congress government has been shielding the accused and the police has done nothing to probe the cases. Kejriwal has asked Mrs Gandhi to direct her party's state govenrment to refer the case to the CBI and ensure the rehabilitation of victims and their families.
