Lead a double life – death penalty for rape

Here is a story that I’ll probably remember as long as I live. We often face the major disasters of life bravely and then let the trifles, the pains in the neck, get us down. Here we are on this earth, with only a few more decades to live. One summer, I was on a camping trip in the Jammu and Kashmir valleys. It’s really a very nice place to visit and I definitely like to visit this place again and again.

I along with my camping partners were enjoying and having fun while camping. It seems as if I will capture lot many things and take sweet and adventurous memories from the place. One day, we all went to the nearby village and met some families living there. There I met an 8-year-old girl who was adopted by a Muslim family as her parents were met with an accident and died. But she was in a safe place as her parents who have adopted her takes care of her.

After few gossips, we all went back to the camping tents and rest for some time and again started our journey. After two days, when we all were done with camping and packing bags to return at home. I thought to visit the girl again. I rushed through the valley to meet her, and when I reached I was shocked of the incident that her parents told me. An eight-year-old girl was gang-raped and murdered.

I was shocked and felt like bursting into tears. Her parents were so tensed and crying like anything. Everyone got to know rapists, police have also arrested them but what about her parents. They know that now she will never come back and they will not be able to see her again. It was really a drastic change in their family. I wasn’t able to accept the truth and was stunned by the incident.

It was almost as if someone had struck me a blow on the head. After this news, I was so worried and depressed that I couldn’t sleep. Rapidly, this news got fire and in the whole country, it permeates. Each and every person come on the roads and start protesting. Everyone is demanding the death penalty for rape.

But who knows death penalty law in India has something else to say. In the past few days, as protests erupted across the country, the government of India had a secret meeting on death penalty list.

Here lead a double life title is mentioned because when a girl doesn’t become the victim till that she is respected and honored. But as she becomes someone’s food she is ostracized from the society as if one were two persons usually one good and one bad. People have lost all humanity and want to see everything in an evil way. When a girl runs from the hands of the rapist. She clarifies the boy identity due to which they get punished. Now because of the fear of punishment rapists kill the girl after their enjoyment.
