Where We Are Heading As A Society?

Do you also think, we as a society, have turned quite inhuman and vicious?  At-least I think so, and I am in much distress after witnessing this everyday increase in number of dreadful rape incidents. A few days back, the body of a 23-year-old girl was found at a secluded place in Rohtak, Haryana. As per reports, the girl was sedated and gang raped. Medical examination unfolded that she had been violated with some foreign objects. Her head was smashed with a brick to blur identification and the body was run over by a vehicle. Our so-called high tech news channels ran this story as Haryana's Nirbhaya but I found it least appreciable way of reporting such a hateful crime incident.

Somehow I lived with this news. But what is not letting me live is the fear of where we are leading towards. Even after the death sentence to the accused in Delhi’s Nirbhaya case, there is no decrease in number of such brutal crimes. In this deep anger, I said to my husband, “I think we could live better life had there been reporting or no IT broadcasting of such crime on news, supposedly, the criminals would be leaving the rape victims alive believing that there would be no reporting against them for what they have done.” Victims, as I believe, are afraid of reports and media broadcast of their crime which induces them to become a monster and brutally slaughter the victim before there take places any reporting. More attentiveness towards women safety has made the media alert and the media pressure has made the police reporting of maximum cases possible. The women are also bold enough today to report the case without fear or shame. Though, this is not acceptable for these barbaric criminals who put their best efforts in in taking the victim to such a condition that they are not at all able to fight back. They put their best effort in killing the girl after rape. No matter what is the age of victim!
Now another news that broke my heart and made me getting a lump in my throat was a 10-year-old girl who was turned pregnant by her stepfather. This again happened in Rohtak, Haryana. The agony came to light when her mother took the girl to a local government hospital where after examination doctors diagnosed the young girl to be 5 months pregnant. According to news, this little girl was repeatedly raped by her stepfather. The man allegedly threatened the girl to not to tell anyone. The young little girl is between life and death now as the Doctors are not sure about the success of her abortion in such critical condition. However, the completely immature body of a 10 year old is also absolutely not able to carry this for a long time.
The law considers it illegal to abort a pregnancy after 20 weeks, it is totally not possible for a poor ten year old to survive this. Just the heights of the insane mentality of her stepfather is going to cost the little girl her entire life. The girl is still admitted and the medical board of Rohtak's Post-Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences will meet today to decide on the child's condition.
I become emotional or you can say I am quite sentimental over what is going on these days and what our girls are going to live like. A 10 year old girl is bearing so much pain and physical discomfort. During my initial days of pregnancy, I used to curse morning sickness and other changes that were happening in my body. There was support from all the sides and then only I survived that tough time. During my chat with my friend, I was thinking what that girl might have gone through, she is five months pregnant now!! 
I am simply thoughtless about the man. Is he an animal? He has a wife to have sex with, however, he raped an adolescent who is her daughter. How can someone be so felonious and mentally obsessed that he raped a child, repeatedly?  He made a little girl suffer this way, carrying an unborn fetus and struggling for her own life. Although the man has been arrested but I think no punishment can make him realize what he had done so shamelessly.
I don’t care what law is saying, but I want doctors to abort this pregnancy for her. She is still to live her childhood. I want the girl to be safe and back to her normal physical state. How come she can be a mother in such innocent age, she is so small!! Mare thinking about the future if she is not allowed to abort the fetus gives me heavy sadness. God help her and help her sail through this time. Give her good health and strength to pass through it. 
This is such a shame as a society. One of the two most honest relationships of a child's life, a father, has raped the daughter.  I don’t understand where we are heading. Will we ever be able to make our surroundings livable for girls? BIG QUESTION.
