Indian Sisters To Be Raped As 'punishment' by kay9(m): 9:39am On Aug 29, 2015
And I thought we had jungle justice in Nigeria...

Two Indian sisters 'sentenced' to be raped and then paraded naked around the streets with their faces blackened in another example of India's scandalous 'village justice'.



Two sisters in India - one aged only 15-years - are to be raped as "punishment" for their brother running away with a married woman from a higher caste in the latest caste to shock the country.

Meenakshi Kumari, who is 23, and her younger sister, will then be paraded naked with their faces blackened through the streets, according to a ruling from the all-male village council.

The sisters have petitioned the country's Supreme Court to be protected from the so-called "eye-for-an-eye" ruling from the village council in Uttar Pradesh state, 30 miles from the capital Delhi.

The family are from the Dalit caste, historically known as "untouchables". However, the brother fell in love with a woman from the higher, Jat, caste.

The woman was forced into an arranged marriage in February with a man from her own caste despite her relationship, according to Zee news, citing the elder sister Meenakshi.

The couple eloped in March, but returned to the village after the man's family were allegedly tortured by police. The village council then made its ruling that the Dalit family should be dishonoured to "avenge" the brother's supposed crime.
Meenakshi and her sister ran away to the capital after the ruling was handed out and were able to submit their petition for protection for their family at the Supreme Court. However, they are still facing the punishment when they return home.

Khap panchayats are the archaic systems of village justice that exist in much of rural India. They are dominated by the Jat caste and are almost always run by male village elders.

The "courts" often order honour killings and sexual "punishments" and are frequently allowed to operate completely outside the Indian legal system, despite the Supreme Court labelling them "kangaroo courts".

Jats are powerful sources of votes and few politicians have been prepared to challenge the system.

The gang rape of a 23-year-old student in Delhi in December 2012 horrified the country and led to mass street protests and the central government vowing reform of the penal code.

However, last December, the girl's father said the promises of legal reform had not been met. A BBC documentary called India's Daughter broadcast in March proved highly controversial for its portrayal of how widespread the problem of rape is in India.

That is a joke, right?

Rape as punishment. Who are the beneficiaries and how are they chosen. I know our policies are poor in Nigeria but it's worse in this so called India where Govt do not have a say on such barbaric acts, so disgusting.

Some silly good for nothing boys will just take advantage of the poor girls. And to think that the girls are not actually the culprits for whatever stupid allegations that were levelled, its so bad.

Am hoping they find protection and justice. They need protection from the supposed beneficiaries as they would still crave to rape the girls.
