Three Sisters Killed: Children Raped In India, Bodies Dumped

Three sisters were raped, killed, and dumped in a well in India on Valentine’s Day; their bodies were found two days after their grandfather reported that they hadn’t returned home from school.

The girls, aged between five and eleven years old, are the latest victims in a wave of sexual violence to sweep India. After the brutal rape and murder of a young woman on a bus in New Delhi, more and more citizens are speaking out against the violence aimed at women and girls there. After the sisters were found, thousands of people from Murmadi, Lakhani reportedly blocked the highway in a protest, demanding justice be done.

The family of the girls say that the Police Inspector, Prakash Munde, was partially to blame for a delay in a search for the girls; he has since been suspended. The government has awarded the children’s mother a financial compensation, but she refused, saying instead she wanted them to use it to find the murderers.

“When my granddaughters did not return home on February 14, we searched around and at 9 p.m., we went to the Lakhani police station to lodge a complaint. But our complaint was registered only at 1.30 am next day,” the girls’ grandfather–who helped raise them–said.

Police have organized several investigation teams for the case and, as of this week, had three suspects in custody for interrogation. But, they say, that doesn’t mean the men are the suspects. They are also looking at people who knew the family, saying they suspect the girls knew their killers.

    Tourist any other financial aid they recieve need to be boycotted or something. This country has no respect for females at all. Who is thier God where the men feel they can do anything they like to women.

  • Louise

    How do you ocmpensate a parent for the loss of their children? And, why was the offer made so quickly after the find? This just proves that the government in India doesn’t want to prosecute or even discuss this terrible issue. I’m glad the inspector was suspended, but I have a feeling he’ll be back on the job within a month. Women in most of these third world countries are not even considered human unless they are of the higher castes. I wonder if this family were condisered “Untouchables”? This is truly a national disgrace.

    • brownin329

      It’s a disgrace in any country. These things happen all over the world and it’s so unbelievably savage. The only thing we can do is watch our children, protect our vulnerable and aged and no longer expect things to be okay. If that means walking your kids to school every day, do it. It that means walking your wife to and from work every night, do it. If that means developing a mindset that does not see females as objects to be used and discarded but as human beings worthy of respect, make a PSA and run it 24 hours a day until people get a clue. Teach sensitivity in school. Protest. Run for office and change laws. Ask for help. No, demand it.

  • Ryan

    Need to reform the Law and Order in India. Police job in India is to not to work for public but to collect money. They treat people like their servants.

    • kiya

      stopping the trade wont help anything! they will just take their angers out on the women. Stupid Ass America should help those people. but of course the people of this country are WAAAY to shallow to know anything about helping the next person….UGH I HATE AMERICA!

  • Renee

    The United States and other countries should stop all trade with India effective immediately until that country does something about this ongoing violence against females. I personally will not buy anything associated with India until some changes are made in that country. I hope others will join me in this boycott.

    • elle

      WTF? so then should we stop trade with ourselves until amends r made for the injustices here? you r just dumb

      • Donna

        You are the idiot. There are injustices here but nothing like that crazy country that allows a man to do what he wants to another human being, a woman. Women run this country or hadn’t you noticed.

        • Bruce M

          Are you kidding? How can you not remember all the rape and killing of women, even children and sometimes babies here. Just for kids, have you never heard of Jessica Lunsford, Chelsea Kane, Amber Dubois, Elizabeth Smart (fortunately wasn’t killed). And those were just famous cases of children, here in the US.

          This is a global, societal problem. How ignorant.

      • Renee

        Elle, your own level of intelligence is questionable. Your post doesn’t make sense. How do you stop trade with yourself? Also, don’t you think a financial hit to India would make the government think twice about what they let go on over there?

        • ELLE

          All of you people are retarded. Your comments are pointless. They will not make a difference. If you want to make a change, get off your computer and do something about it. You probably won’t do anything because you are fat, lazy, and greedy.

      • Renee

        This isn’t stopping trade with women, it is stopping trade with a country whose government thinks raping and killing females — including five year olds — is okay.

        • JM

          Which government would that be, kook?

    • Donna

      I agree….not purchasing anything from India. Stop trading with this disgusting country.

  • Renee

    I have a female friend who is in India teaching for a year. I hope to God she stays safe during her time abroad.

  • Lauren

    sick, sick, sick people. The world is ending. And all these disgusting things will be judged accordingly.

    • JM

      No it isn’t, religious nut.

  • Jake Smith

    The saddest thing is to think there are so many conscienceless, evil, barbaric, people that would do this sort of thing and to CHILDREN? I used to think of the world basically as the good guys against the bad guys and sad to say, I think the bad guys are winning. We have to start punishing henious crimes heniously. Eye for an eye. No lethal injection, no quick hanging. We have to start putting people who have no regard to human life to death by tortureously. Animals behave better. These people are truly barbarians.

  • vickie

    I just have one question… How do they know id was KILLERS instead of just ONE killer?

    Prayers going up for the family of these little girls. May God be with you and heal your broken hearts.

  • Linda

    What kind of people live in India? The men are disgustingly amoral and apparently have a total lack of respect for girls and women. It’s especially sad that men think it’s alright to rape children. What kind of parents did these men have? They can’t be much better than common street trash.

    • Bruce M

      Sadly, this happens in other countries in the world, including the US. Do you not remember Jonbenet Ramsey (sexual assault could not be ruled out), Jessica Lunsford, Amber Dubois, and many more cases where toddlers and even babies are raped and killed. Most recently, a Philadelphia woman has been charged with kidnapping and raping a 5 year old.

  • Linda Marzec

    I am sickened to think that this can go on in any country and it’s been accepted until people began to voice their oppostion and are not going to tolerate it! These little girls should never ever have lost their lives and I pray that something is done and that those responsible are given death! How can a country just keep brushing this under the rug for so long? Makes me sick and I pray will be the last to lose their lives! Don’t care if the people responsible are teens, they should get death!!!

  • kiya

    stopping the trade wont help anything! they will just take their angers out on the women. Stupid Ass America should help those people. but of course the people of this country are WAAAY to shallow to know anything about helping the next person….UGH I HATE AMERICA!!

    • dmic

      How would this be America’s fault? Do you seriously know every single American? There are many American’s that use there own money and their vacation time to travel all over the world to volunteer their time and their labor to help others. If you want to hate something… hate the men in India that continue to abuse the women of their country.

    • Asuka

      Kiya you are ignorant.
      Do you know the saying
      “You cannot help others until your can help yourself?”

      America cannot even stop the tremendous amount of molestation, rape and murder ect. what makes you think they would turn a blind eye on their own people to help another Country? What king of country would the USA be if they decided to help others than help their own people? Besides, how could the USA help if they couldn’t find the solution to the problems in their homeland? I wonder, do you live in USA? If so, I am sad. You seem to take all of the freedom you have and take it for granted.

  • kiya

    the soldiers and police are just as crooked ass the civilians….if not more b/c of their authority!

      you think America doesn’t help other nations? thats so uneducated. u need to wrap your towel around ur head and go home if you hate America!

        The towel comment is not necessary and not nice, Luann.

    • JJ

      If you hate America so much then get out! If you are in another country who really cares? When you need financial or military help go ask Saudi!

  • AM

    Renee, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

  • lisa

    give these women a gun let them shoot there balls off and or when convicted of a crime like this the court should order the penus to be removed and jail them forever not giving them a chance to ever to do anything like this again ,!!! (and turn the head when its done to them )

    • Johnny T

      @Lisa… yeah, give a gun to a 5 year old… how about raising men to have more respect for women in that country? I think that would be more effective than arming children….

      • brownin329

        Exactly, Johnny. But in the meantime, we have several generations of men right now who have already been raised. What will India do with them?

      • JM

        The west has more way more rapes than over there.

        …Yet we have plenty of “respect for females”.

        Go figure huh.

  • priti

    It is so disturbing to hear the large number of rapes on young girls in India. Can the government come up with a death sentence for raping and killing of minors? If they do nothing the country will likely suffer in a big way down the road.I hear about entire communities uniting and protesting when something like this happens. But I rarely hear about the rapists being captured and punished.

    • JM

      There is noit that many.

      The only ‘rash’ of incidents is media reporting crimes, demagogically so as to stoke the fires of the not very bright sexists protestors who demand injustice be imposed through unconstitutional means.

      …Just like in america in the 60s.

  • jim

    They are all about Allah….I wonder what Allah thinks of this? Let me guess…they deserved it because they are infidels? Or where they outside the house with a male?

    • sheridan

      Kiya, why should America help other countries when we can’t even control rape and violence against women and children in our own country? Think about that one for a minute. We’re not here to clean up other people/countries’ mess before our own. We have to worry about ourselves first as selfish as that may seem to you. It’s not fair for Americans to have to suffer in our own country because other countries feel that they need a handout from us every other day. But as women we all need to band together and stand up for each other and ourselves against the violence aimed at us. No one is ever going to care because men rule the world.. women are minorities as sad as that is.

      • kiya

        Thats the problem WE should ALL help EACH OTHER!! With everyone on the same page “ONE LOVE” Their would be no “us” and “them” WE ARE THE PEOPLE OF THIS WORLD! Dont you understand? thats why there are neighborhood watch groups, etc…b/c WE ARE THE WORLD!! The government distracts and divides us well!

    • Betty

      Kiya – sounds like you’re full of hatred. How many countries look to the US for aid when disasters strike their homeland? The US is usually the 1st country to send aid, money, volunteers. We’re not all spoiled and uncaring as you seem to think – we work hard for what we have and most other countries are jealous because of our success. Sure, we have our problems, but when disaster strikes, the Americans stick together. I’m proud to be an American and would not want to live in any other country. Sounds like you’re one of the “jealous” haters!

  • kiya

    Johnny T, Sorry i agree with Lisa, there IS such thing as Righteous kill!! And kids protecting themselves is better than being raped, beaten, tortured and killed.

    • brownin329

      5 year olds can’t even hold a pencil straight and you want them to have a gun? What is wrong with you?

  • cah21csc

    I think that Elle is saying that there are many injustices here in the U.S. that our own citizens do not respond to. With that being said, Elle is saying well if you want to stop trade with India because of injustices, you need to do the same with your own country and not by U.S. products until injustices stop here as well. I think both of you make valid points and neither is dumb. How about we do something to stop the violence that occurs in Chicago among the youth everyday? I agree lets speak out but lets do it for our own children as well even though it may not feel to YOU that the issue is as pressing. And to Donna, the United States can be a disgusting country as well as India.

I have a heart for overseas but I have always balanced that with helping my own citizens in need as well

  • gt

    you do realize that by boycotting indian made products your are kicking yourself in the a$$? Most of our “american made” crap is outsourced anyways. You think those huge corporations are bring those cheap jobs here? think again. Real justice can be done by the Indian government being put on blast. Let everyone one know and really feel what it is to be a women there, documentaries, more national media coverage…make the government feel real embarassment and shame for this type of behavior and dont let up because they do something right once. generations of this type of behavior cant be tolerated and not buying a silk scarf isn’t going to change that. oh and stop using “those people” and “that country” because the same s$%t happens in our own backyards.

  • Kathy

    Hi Kiya,

    Blaming a whole country for the rantings of a handful of people doesn’t sound right either. You’re right about not boycotting Indian products, although a lot of them are done in sweatshop conditions. That won’t solve the immorality of these perpetrators. More hate isn’t going to solve anything. I didn’t like a lot of what I saw there in India, but, I don’t hate all Indians because of it. That would be rediculous. I am not going to claim I have the solution, but, I know hating and bashing are not part of the solution.

  • lisa

    I wasnt talking about giving a child a gun, talking about grown wemon , if women had a gun and knew how to use it then those men with no self morals or respect would go after them unless they just wanted to lose there balls , And i think they should teach men anywhere to respect anyone not just a women they should start with there self !! children should be safe nomatter where they are really ….

  • wendy

    I would do anything that would bring about respect for human life. Some of you on this blog are just horrible for your treatment of the other bloggers. Some say don’t buy from India, I would think they wouldn’t like it much if we stopped buying their goods because of the way they treat woman. Some say they hate Amreica ugh, really? at least we arrest and convict our killers and become outraged when children are raped, killed and disposed of like garbage. CHILDREN innocent children. I am not fat lazy or stupid, I can’t make people in india stop raping their woman, and I can’t make India’s officials give a damn either. I think the world is sick of hearing about it. I think the UN should apply sanctions againt thier country if the government won’t step up to the plate and condemn this brutality and make harsher laws. I can’t even imagine anything I need to buy from India that would make a difference in my life.

  • mike kadid

    really why would anyone like KIYA say such trash about a country and its people who donate monies and food and their time to help other people on the other side of the planet and then get called names ???? such as i hate americans, americans are no good, i have one just one question to ask and this is it? when is the last time someone like KIYA have done something nice or say thank you to the peoples of the U.S.A.a smile goes a long way.

    • kiya

      Actually smart ASS Mike Kadid,

      I volunteer every SATURDAY bringing food to homeless shelters that I BUY WITH MY OWN MONEY, trying to help out the homeless, even though they have just a opportunity to do well as you and I. USA as a whole are too consumed in their “daily life” to even care about other countries. I appreciate life and people and the LOVE from one stranger to the next stranger. DO you?

    Are you serious? Maybe your 5 year old cant but my daughter was writing at 3 AND my neice was shooting a shotgun at the range at 9! Kids ARE what you TEACH THEM!! Duh! Thats why American children are so spoiled and overrated, because they dont know how to do anything to survive, only how to be programmed to go to school, and work for “money” which is just a crappy piece of paper used to buy NONSENSE that we have the nerve to charish and worship but doesnt mean ANYTHING at the end of the day compared to love! GET YOUR KNOWLEDGE UP!

    • claire

      u couldnt have said it better my friend

  • MaryMoTastic

    I’m curious as to why India and other countries have a rising trend in raping young girls? Is it because of the rise of STDs in their country or because pedophile behavior is accepted? I think they need to educate the younger generation so that way they can protect themselves and bring awareness to the issue.

  • bunetonza

    any man found guilty of rape, sexual harassment,molestation or pornography should be castrated and killed. its even worse when children are the victims, castration and death are not punishment enough.

    • bloatedyak

      Uuuh, that’s a bit extreme.
      Rape and molestation, I agree. Sexualy harrassment and pornography though?? Seriously, there would be no guys left on the earth. But maybe you’d be ok with that.

    • jeff johnson

      any body.

      but you must be careful as not every one is guilty and the morning after “walk of shame” makes people do and say things that are not true.

      • kyle

        like America? it is mainly in the middle east, but 3rd world countries like india and china that this happens. 1 that it is reported but women have zero rights, and 2 that women are treated as property. muslim men in particular would rather screw an animal or another man (actually the end of ramadan is the gay screwing of men)

  • Ronald Thomas

    As far as I’m concerned, there is no God. And apparently there are quite a few other people who feel the same way. –Like the culprits who committed this crime. They must be of the impression there is no God, because according to the concept that God exists, these culprits would be scared out of their wits to commit such acrime against these young girls.

    When I say there is no God, believers must understand that this is not saying anything bad ‘ABOUT’ God, with the notion that ‘He’ allowed this to happen. Believers explain it away & ‘accept’ it. They ‘accept’ thst their ‘God’ allowed this. I’m saying no God would allow such a thing, and therefore there must not be one.

    So I say there is NO work in mysterious ways on this one. And if there ‘IS’, I’m not impressed. My question is – Are believers impressed? If so, then believers have some soul searching to do.

    The girls were aged as young as 5, on thru 11. NOT that such a crime happening to grown adult women would be any more understood, accpeted, or bearable. The POINT is, it is quite simple & ‘convenient’ to ‘explain’ something away(i.e. The concept of a ‘God’ that would allow this to happen) by saying it need not be explained. FAITH is what believers go on. FAITH in many cases is illogical & goes against all basic logical thinking.

    We’re on our ‘OWN’, must rely on EACH OTHER for help. We must be good to each other. NOT because we believe we’ll burn in Hell forever if we don’t (which the culprits in this case obviously don’t believe), but because it’s the right thing to do. Being a true believer supposedly helps to help one ‘see’ the accepatance & understanding of what happened to these 3 young girls. I’m sorry, but I’m not buying. I ‘bought’ at one time. but I’m a lot older now, and I want nothing to do with anything (i.e. religion) that dictates to me what I’m ‘suppose’ to feel, think, and believe, regardless of how I feel otherwise. That’s all religion & belief in the concept of God is all about, ..CONTROL.

    Religion has ‘control’ of a great many of us all over the world.When are people going to start waking up smelling the ‘coffee’?

    Beleivers should keep reading this article over & over again, and then see if they can ‘explain’ to the families that ‘THIS’ is all part of God’s plan. –Good luck w/’THAT’ one.

    Peace.

    • katy

      very well said, when I was young, I was a believer, but not anymore.

      • Mitch

        God isn’t the cause of this. Man and our sinful nature is. God has given all of us free will, so that means if someone chooses to rape they rape.

        • Nicole

          I agree people there is a God ppl make there own decisions and God will handle them as he please and believe me it will come back 10 times. Whoever does not believe in God should , how do u think we wake up in the morn and so forth. SMH. Bless whomever dont believe in God because we all need him esp u!

          • Ronald Thomas

            True, people make their own decisions. You say if they rape, they rape. But the 5 yr old, along w/her other 2 sisters didn’t have any choice in the matter. So to say people ‘make their own decisions’ doesn’t (completely) apply now, does it?

            my question is – What about the girls? What abt the parents who must know wha their daughter(s) suffered thru, in order that the ‘Lord’ work in mysterious ways. Again, don’t MISS this one, when i say no God exists, then I am not saying ‘God’ allowed this to happen. you see, the ‘believer’ is saying God allowed it to happen ther must be a reason, ..one that need not be explained or understood ‘by believers’. And those who seek, wpuld like, or feel an ‘explanation is ‘in order’ are simply dismissed as non-believers for ‘wanting’ one (an explanation), as far as the concept of god is concerned.

            So you see, non-believers ‘hurt’ muchmorfe than the believer. Because when we see a case like tis one, we TAKE IN ‘exact;y’ what happened & the suffering that was inflicted. We give the ‘beggar’ whatever we have at the time, knowing he 9or she) was not alwyays a beggar. We ‘beleivers’ feel 9or claim they ‘know’) God has a ‘plan’ for that beggar (so they don’t give him anything), & God has a ‘place’ for the gitls in this case. OK, fine. did the parents deserve for their daughters to endure the wrath of these azzholz? You see, the concept of beleiving in a higher being who is supposed to be righteous in the eyes of us all, who ‘demands’ (for lack of a better word, but that’s probably te right none) that we ‘accept’ our fate, & the fate of others (like these 3 girls), is a farce. The ‘word’ is being passed by people ‘in the business. Control of the ‘masses’. (Have you ever thougt about where the word ‘mass’ or the term going to ‘mass’ comes from?)

            Don’t get me wrong, tere are ‘good’ things in the bible. –Do unto others as you would have them do unto you, love thye neighbor as you love yourself, anger breeds anger, but a kind word turns away wrath, etc. –the list goes on & on. But my comments are not about the ‘bible’, my dxomments are about individual ‘people’ not accounting for themselves, & pawning off whatr’s ahppening in the world (liek the case of thse 3 girls) to a ‘faith’ that is accepted, regardless of the injustices around us. There is no God. we (all of us, all over the WORLD) need to man the phukk UP! and correct our OWN infradftions. Why do you think governements have an army under oath? They know 9 times out o’ 10 they’re wrong, & if the the ‘people’ ever want to tske sction against the corruption, they’re (the gov’t) are going to ‘NEED’ their military. So, although military might is designed to protect a nation, it’s also designed to protect the corrupt gov’t azzholz who r screwing people over left & right.

            You think the Godfather movie series was a fictional accfount of what goes on? Where was religion then? And why would a God allow these Catholic Priests to do what they’ve doen to those young boys? –on a large scale, not isolated incidents. What point could be made from that? The boys are ruined for LIFE. OK, it’s free will. Well that’s fine on the part of the Priests involved, but what about the boys? Was it ‘THEIR’ free will?

            Again, I’m saying nothing denouncing ‘God’, because remember, I’m saying no God exists. So in all actuality I, and people who agree with me, are letting ‘God’, or whoever believers claim is responsible or in ‘control’ fo all this mess, off the hook, so to speak. I’m saying a god doesn’t exist, so there’s no one to blame but OURSELVES. Maybe those 3 girls shouldnever been ina situation to where those animals could commit their crime against them. They were 5 thru 11, why was there no male family member or other male WITH them? We could ask OURSELVES a whole lot of questions. That’s what people who don’t believe in God ‘do’. However, ‘believers’ take the lazy way out of life, believing in the concept of a ‘God’ where all you need is faith, and everything else will take care of itself. Keep thinking that way with your young children in thsi evil world & see how far that gets you.

            I’m out.

        Katy,
        your response is understandable. From a humans standpoint.

        You want to believe in the fatherhood of God & brotherhood of man, right? That is the cult of the ‘love gospel’.

        But there is, if you BELIEVE in the right God & the Right man the answer to your confusion & suggested anger &/or frustration!
        One MUST …Pray for His(Jesus) forgiveness(Matt 9:6), praising His name & asking for His protection for your family, your loved ones & all those you care about … sake.
        Otherwise, all are in the cross hairs of those who want to do us harm. All have the free will free choice to do whatever they please.
        But nothing evil happens w/o the permission of God … DID YOU KNOW THAT?
        If no one has prayed for the protection of these little angels, for example, then God will allow them to come home.

        Our HUMAN way of rationalizing & reasoning is NOT His way, please remember that.

        Isaiah 55:8 For my thoughts [are] not your thoughts, neither [are] your ways my ways, saith the LORD.

        Prov 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

        Prov 3:6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

        To all atheists out there … remember that humanism has been the cause of MORE deaths than Christianity & Islam combined, historically.

      • alexis

        This is so fucking disgusting. You’re using the tragic death of three innocent girls to argue religion? Get the fuck out of here and find somewhere else to try and prove your insensitive, ignorant remarks about God. This has nothing to do with God, this has to do with a savage act executed by a savage man/woman. The loss of innocent lives shouldn’t be a chance to further your religious, political, or personal agenda, this is a tragedy and you should get your bullshit out of here. Have some decency and maybe a dose of humanity and a hint of humility for being such a jackass.

    • chris

      Ronald,
      You are obviously misinformed about religion and beliefs. God does not “allow” or “disallow” anything. He gave man free will to do as he chooses. All will be judged on their actions by him on their day of reckoning. If God were to control everyone’s actions then what would be the point of giving anyone a brain.
      Secondly, to say that god does not exist because no god would allow this to happen is obtuse thinking. Could we then also say that no good men exist because if there were any they would not let this happen?
      I wish that uninformed commentary would stop appearing on sites but I guess now I am the one with obtuse thoughts!

      • Ronald Thomas

        I’m not talking about the culprits’ actions, I’m talking about what happened to the girls. What are your comments on that? –Free will doesn’t apply there now, ‘does’ it?

    • Zach

      Moron

    • Justme

      SO let me get this straight…there is not a God because this happened? So God should have stepped in and stopped this. Where does it end? I suppose He would have to step in on all child rape and abuse cases. Well, being that He would step in on all that because it was wrong…then He would have to step in on all wrongs? SO pretty much there would be no human race because we would all be struck down by lightning for doing anything wrong….including even a little white lie. Or are you saying He should only step in on this big stuff? I am sure an old man who lost all his money to a robber would also think of that as important too, and the woman who is being lied to by her cheating husband would also think that was big and so on…..so pretty much freewill is out the window and we are all doomed because if there was a God bad things would not happen. This crime was committed by MEN not God! The reason there is death in the world is because of sin in the world. These little girls suffering was but a second compared to the glory that awaited them. Why did it happen? Because some men committed a horrible sin, not because God wanted it that way. Sin is not God’s will, it is mans. You need to do some soul searching, you will one day face God. If you are right when I die…wont mean a thing…I wont even know I was wrong…but if I am right? You are in trouble. Dont take the chance. God loves you and so does Jesus. I am so sorry for this families grief, I have suffered a lot of grief myself so I know. May God bless you and keep you. Freewill was a gift of God, thats why you get to write what you did, you have freewill…so did these men….quit blaming God…blame the men and sin. Religion does not control me. I was so lost and miserable and felt a void until I became a Christian, now I am so happy. And please don’t compare me to others Christians you know who do this or that….God saved me from a destructive path, you have no idea the difference it made for me. Control me? No….it makes me want to do good…be good.

      • plainlyspoken

        yeah. If he exists, he should have. The notion of sin is just silly. Bad people do bad things. God, the devil, all this hocus pocus is just a way of taking comfort when you have no control over things. It’s a way of saying, “gee, it’s the lord’s will, or that’s because those people are evil…” it’s a deflection of responsibility in some cases or a shield to hide behind or a rock to hurl at a nonbeliever. If I had a nickel for every time some one who apparently THINKS they’re (a) god, told me I was going to hell, I could food for the poor for the winter. Something I actually do–no Christian dogma or pushy abusive commands needed. Not everyone who believes in “Christ” is good and not everyone who doesn’t is evil. That’s silly, small-minded and intolerant, disrespectful thinking. And typical of Christians. I hear the Scientologists are the same way. Go figure.

      • Boop

        If there is a God, then free will doesn’t exist. Free will is when a person has “free and independent choice”. How can one have free will if God is all-knowing? If God already knows what will happen to everyone in the future, what decisions we all will make, then we do not have free will. An all-knowing God would have knowledge of our future choices, which would make these choices predetermined, thus meaning no free will. Back to the topic at hand tho, it is a shame what happened to these young girls. Hopefully, the police force will be competent and work to find the culprit. I’m glad people are actually starting to speak up over there and bring these atrocities to light.

        • Linda

          Some people may be less evil than others, but we all Miss the mark when it comes to God’s Holy standard. All have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God! Romans 3:23, there is none righteous, no not one! Romans 3:10 The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23 All will die and face the judgement Hebrews 9:27. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to usward, not willing that ANY should perish, but that all should come to repentance. So last, but not least, by all means go read John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.

      • Ronald Thomas

        No, ‘He’ wouldn’t (& shouldn’t) have to step in. And apparently didn’t, & won’t. POINT I’m making is – There is no God,and no one is to blame, is my point, ..which you napparently MISSED, entirely.

        Yes, we have free will. But what about the girls, they had no choice in their fate w/thos criminals, is the point I was making. And God is not to blame. ‘We’, the people, who didn’t protect those girls, and the culprits are the only ones to blame. that’s all I’m saying when i say there is no God.

    • http://www.sinfulfashions.com SoulSearcher2

      It is not meant to be understood… we are human and we can only see, feel imagine in a very limited scope…. to try and place reason in a world full of no reason is to ask the insane to be sane…. its simply impossible…

      There are times like this senseless crime… that one simply shakes one head, cries for the loss, seeks out those that committed this crime and eradicate them like a cancer….and then we move on with our journey on earth…

      It is not our job to understand such a horrific event or even the monster/monsters able to commit this act. It is our job to find them, and give them justice…

      If God wanted to control you he would have simply controlled us… after all look around at this magnificant world we live in… the beauty is so breathtaking … but like a rose with thorns… so must the humane race have its animals…

      God only seeks a relationship that is personal with you..never forget that even the pastor reading a bible verse to you is but a human being….. it is the message we are to seek not the messenger..

      • Ronald Thomas

        It is very ‘convenient’ when the explanation of something is that it need not be explained.

    • Susan

      Very nicely put. I totally agree with you. If there is a God, what is his role? To help the parents of these three girls get through it. BS! And if there is a God, how could 200,000 totally innocent people die in a tsunami? That was the confirmation to me that there absolutely in not a God and people use it as a coping mechanism to accept all this tragedy. It is
      so frustrating, to say the least. It is the most illogical bunch of nonsense that so many people are buying. Or is it just
      because it’s politically correct and fashionable.

      Obviously I am very cynical about it because the non-believers are practically shunned for not drinking the Kool-Aid.

      • plainlyspoken

        You hit the nail on the head, Susan. “That” was nicely put. And I don’t think you are cynical. I think you “think” for yourself. And that is something religion cannot afford. If people really thought about it and accepted that bad things happen for reasons we cannot understand (or in this case can–these men are rotten and need to be caught and punished), maybe they wouldn’t need to throw every bit of control they have into superstition. It’s a fear-based response. The need for protection and parenting from the monster under the bed. Sad…

      • Linda

        The question you ought to be asking your maker is why does He love you (someone that slams His Holy Name) so much that He would send His only Son to die on the cross in the place of your sin!

    • plainlyspoken

      George Carlin said it best: “More people have been killed in the name of God than for any other reason.” You are absolutely correct, Mr. Thomas! I believe religion is a shield that many hide behind to dodge responsibility for themselves or for others. There is a reason why it is called “dogma” and why people are “indoctrinated.” Freedom of thought and formulation of truth should be inalienable rights however religious leaders/participants are intolerant of these two concepts. Control IS the agenda of all religion. Look at the woman shrouded from view, the rules and punishment that befall them if they disobey (and why is it only women must live this way???) in some religious practices? It’s all backward nonsensical superstition. If religion brings an individual comfort, then fine. But religious view points that insist upon formulating policies and laws around religion, invoking an attitude of intolerance and a culture of hatred for those different is toxic and will result in the demise of our world if people don’t wake up.

    • Michael Grady

      Ronald Thomas – Existentially you are right – God doesn’t exist. But God ontologically “is” – “The Great I AM”, which is not an existential (temporal) statement, but an ontological (non-temporal)statement. So you are right but you are also most assuredly wrong.

    • http://webpronews R Collins

      I am not Christian. Nor am I religious in any way. I do however notice that cowards like you seem to enjoy pointing out to Christians that, as you put it, “there is no god”. I have never understood why some of us atheists are so combative. If a person believes in something that may give them peace of mind, especially concerning the thought of death, why not let them hold on to it? The fact that people like you try to take that away makes you a bad person. Now, if a christian came to your door peddling their beliefs, or if “god” made an appearance in a political conversation, (as often happens)I could see your point. That is annoying as hell. This particular persons comment was harmless. Picking a fight with a kind-hearted person…arrogant prick! Interesting thought, I never hear your type of coward arguing with muslims that their god and prophet does not exist. You choose soft targets. Upon reading this keep in mind I too am an atheist. However, I am an atheist that accepts each persons opinions and not one of the radicals that tries to push his beliefs on others, like a door to door Jehovah’s witness.

      • plainlyspoken

        If you are not a radical, why would you call a man who expresses his opinion with equal vigor an arrogant prick? Sounds pretty judgmental to me…and by the way…do you really think anyone believes your an atheist? I don’t think the Christians are that delicate nor do they need an “atheist” to defend them-not even an pseudo-atheist. They have centuries of pointing guns at nonchristians to “convert” them under their belts. They’ll be fine when confronted with an equally strong difference of opinion. Clearly you have not been bullied by the Christian “perspective” as some of us have. I have been told not to wear a necklace with Buddha on it to my JOB while the HR person was wearing her “cross.” My in-laws have humiliated and taunted me on the holidays for my beliefs–particularly on “Christmas” when the we commemorate Christ’s birth by going into debt for the giving and receiving of lots of presents! Not all Christians are kind-hearted and fuzzy like you portray these people. They spew a lot of intolerance and hatred. I don’t advocate hatred, but I’ve had enough of the “bully” pulpit and the superstitious nonsense that these people rant about. Religion is used incessantly to control others and deflect responsibility. If another individual wants to post verse after verse of bible scriptures and “preach” then those of us who take umbrage to it have the right to say our piece.

        • http://webpronews R Collins

          You are a complete ass. I just cant get the image of you “going into debt” from buying too many presents, then blaming christianity! Note to douchebag: don’t buy presents. In fact,don’t even take the day off from work! Sounds like you were some catholic priests boy toy. Get counselling.
          Speaking of Buddha, investigate how lecherous their priests are when someone dies…their hand is outstretched and wide open!
          As far as you not believing me to be an atheist….your opinion means nothing to me. Furthermore, from what you stated in your “rebuttal”, it sounds like your opinion means nothing to the people around you. What does that tell you? Angry little alter boy!

    • Believer Also

      Its funny how people want to toss aside the concept of God just because so much is happening. God does not put the gun in people’s hands to committ such heinous crimes. Are we not beings with wills and the right to do what we please?
      The concept of God has nothing to do with what happens on earth. We cannot make up the rules and regulations about what God should or should not do. Can our children question us putting them in horrible public schools? They can, but we raise them whatever way we desire with no disssent allowed.
      God, as the supreme ruler of this universe can decide how to deal with man in any way he decides.

      People use these events as silly ways to point at God, no no no. Point at society. Point at societies that celebrate male dominance without any care for the women. Blame the pedophiles for their depraved behaviors. Blame greedy investors and extortionists for their tortious acts.
      God can do whatever he pleases, and by the way, the Day of Reckoning is coming quickly.

      • Ronald Thomas

        There is no eternity that follows. When you die it’s the same thing as when you’re asleep and not dreaming, having no sense of consciousness or anything. You are totally blank & oblivious to your surroundings. Death is a DONE DEAL. Religion sells the concept of this not being the case & ‘believers’ look forward to eternal life.

        Religion is a farce. Ask any Monk who has reached the position of ‘Master. (Meaning he has learned that there is no God.) The Pope is an atheist.

        Religon justifies the ‘need’ of the ‘masses’ (thus, the term ‘mass’ for the congregation).

        Keep convincing yourself. That’s what religion is all about, ..keeping people ‘believing’. For if the truth be known, or their concepts questioned with ‘conviction’, a clergyman’s world could crumble.

    • Dan

      Ronald,

      Like the vast majority of people, you are only focused on this short life, and give no consideration to the eternity that follows.

      The truth is, God allows suffering in this life. He even allowed it for his only begotten son. Jesus died a horrible, painful, humiliating death. His hand selected servants, aka the apostles? They all proclaimed the truth of Jesus and the Kingdom of God, and all of them suffered death for it, dying as martyrs in testimony to their belief in what they taught and preached. Yes, these things were horrible in themselves from a worldly/here and now point of view, but from God’s eternal perspective they are glorious testaments to the power and love of God, for you and all mankind.

      Do you think the apostles in Heaven are bummed that they got to walk with God and had the honor of helping establishing his church on Earth? When they gave their bodies up to death, their eternal souls went to be with Jesus in HEAVEN, in joy, love, peace and honor FOREVER.

      I guarantee you that their trust in God and the investment of their blood, sweat and tears in his eternal kingdom is not something they are regretting. Like the pain of childbirth forgotten by mothers, the pains of this life will be long gone when those who trust Christ enter eternity. For those who don’t, all the pain and suffering of this life won’t compare to the immediate and unending suffering of an eternity of separation from God.

      You and everyone on the face of this planet is going to die. Some in their sleep, some in pain and suffering. When all is said and done, the only important things are the eternal things. Starting with 1) How did you respond to God in this life?, and 2) What your fate will be after this life is over.

      • Linda

        Amen!
        To those who don’t believe in God: In order to have a creation, there must be a Creator! To think that you can do good without God, you would not know wrong (sin) had God not given the law. The law was given so that we would all be humbled before God and we could know that there is none righteous, no not one! After He showed us that, He continued to show us that He gave His only begotten Son to die on the cross and take the punishment for our sin. He did not stop there! His Son, Jesus Christ rose from the dead and is alive Right Now, seated at the right hand of His Father. We cannot come to the Father without His precious Son! John 3:16 Don’t let this day pass without realizing your need for Jesus Christ. Today is the day of salvation!! Ephesians 2:8,9 For by grace you are saved, through faith; and that not of yourselves:it is the gift of God:Not of works lest any man should boast.

      • Ronald Thomas

        Dan, ‘religion’ would have you believe that. Again from a Christian point of view. I guessa child born into ?Buhddism is destined to the eternal fire. The list goes on & on of different ‘beliefs’. I was an avid churchgoer & follower of the concept of God & what He requires of us. ALL of us falling short of it, until death.

        I don’t place too much stock in a religion that condemns human beings to eternal suffering. It doesn’t make any sense. I always wanted to know at what point is one ‘off the hook’ so to speak, regarding to their belief in God. i.e. How much time in one’s life does one have to ‘find’ him & accept Jesus Christ as teir Lord & Savior before being condemned to eternal suffering at death?

        If a man finds God at the age of 40, & lives the life you claim should be lived in order to achieve eternal life, how is that fair to the man who died at 25 & never had that occur in his life? ..just asking.

        • Dan

          Ronald, the reason Jesus had to die to pay for the sins of the world was because it is not possible for men to live sinless lives. You say you were a churchgoer, but I find that hard to believe when every Sunday the message is clear, we are all sinners in need of the Savior. The pastor needs a savior, the pope needs a savior, the apostles needed a savior who could clear their debt of sin away. Jesus did that once and for all on the cross.

          You just have to believe that in faith and that payment will be applied to your sin debt, past, present and future. I know this about my God, he loves me and that buddhist child more than anyone else ever will, and he will do the right and just thing come judgement time for me and that child. Don’t forget that God is sovereign. That means he gets to do what he chooses with all that is his (the universe and everything in it) and he WILL do the right thing because that is his nature.

          Through ONE man (Adam) sin came into the world and tainted us all, so God is fair and just to clear all of the sins of the world through the payment of one (sinless) man (Christ). Unlike a Bhuddist child who may never hear the name of Christ, you have all the opportunity in the world to know him, you will have no excuse. Believe, accept, trust and be saved.

    • Adolph Briscoe

      I understand your thinking Ronald. Religion is a political fantasy created by humans. Religion was created by our disadvantaged ancestors as symbol of hope for a better life. unfortunately it has been used by sinners and oppressors to either help their evil agenda or to make them feel better about their immoral actions. I think you can agree that most of the evil committed on our world has been done in the name of Religion. The belief in GOD, on the other hand is another subject. The question one should ask is not, is there a GOD, instead, one should ask, what is GOD. I believe that GOD is not a being that controls everyones destiny. GOD is the equation that ties time, space, matter and consciousness together. The concept of good and evil are in reality a matter of perspective. According to my personal perspective, it is wiser to be benevolent for evolutionary growth, positive social advancement self gratification,and many other positive reasons. The state of evil is self destructive on many levels. So if you ask yourself, how can a GOD let such a horrible act occur, just think of GOD as Nature, and as we all know, in reality, Nature can be cruel.

      • Linda

        Wrong!
        You are preaching another gospel! A lie! If you want to know who God is, pick up His written Word to us. Start with John 1:1. In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God! Then continue to read the rest of John.

        • Ronald Thomas

          ok, Linda. So once that’s read, ‘THEN’ what? ..Case closed? I don’t ‘THINK’ so.

      • Dan

        Adolph, do you realize you are creating your own god and that any god that man creates is no God at all? You said yourself “According to my personal perspective…” Well, your personal perspective is going to lead you away from the real God and into eternal darkness. God provided the Bible to tell the story of mankind’s creation, fall and redemption in Jesus Christ.

        The Bible’s history illustrates God’s love, patience, mercy and forgiveness for the souls trapped in this world of sin. Go to Sunday school or Bible studies at a Bible-believing church and you will start to experience the truth that the Bible is not just a book. There is spiritual power in the Word of God, in prayer, and in a life that chooses to walk with God. Do you have the power to save yourself? Of course not, so why should you put your faith in your word over God’s Word? Answer: YOU ABSOLUTELY SHOULDN’T. Trust God, ask him to show himself to you and diligently, patiently and SINCERELY seek him. The Bible says “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” I can tell you that there was a time in my life that I had stopped believing there was a God. But when I asked, sought, and knocked, God opened the door for me just like He promises in Matthew 7:7. That offer stands for all mankind, including you who are reading this.

      There is nothing wrong with Ronald. He just doesn’t agree with you and like all Christians, you can’t allow him to think for himself and express his feelings if they go against your own brand of brainwashing. This is why I LEFT the church a long time ago. And I’m a much happier, healthier person for it. NOTHING is going to happen to Ronald or people like me–though intolerant zealots like you would LOVE for that to happen. We are fine and if Christians actually care about people instead of pushing their ideology on us, you would want that, but you don’t. You LOVE the idea of HELL and SUFFERING–VENGEANCE, BRIMSTONE, FIRE AND PUNISHMENT. That is all there is for you. Hatred. We will continue to speak our minds no matter how much it offends you that we are going to think for ourselves. So just go read your bible and maybe learn to respect the right of others to speak their minds.

      If you’re not part of the solution, then you’re part of the problem. Yes, we Americans can be selfish and wrapped up within ourselves, but if you’re not interested in working towards making this a better place, feel free to seek out a less selfish society.

    • Mike

      Why you hate America when in reality it is the so called ” Greatest Democracy in the world” who can’t adequately protect its own people especially the women. There is so much corruption, ill-management, poverty and despair and injustice in India that it is not evedent in any other country of the world. Finally, the world is seeing the true picture of India.

    It is not God’s will or plan for anything like this to happen. He gave man free will to do as he pleases. Whoever done this is evil and will pay the price with their own lives on this earth and with their souls if they die without salvation and forgiveness. Creation of this planet alone screams there is a GOD! I have never seen a perfect accident as the bang theory suggests. There is one God and his son is Jesus Christ. The bible and all it’s prophecy’s has and will continue to come true.

    • Danielle

      Well said Jeff.

  • plainlyspoken

    George Carlin said it best: “More people have been killed in the name of God than for any other reason.” You are absolutely correct, Mr. Thomas! I believe religion is a shield that many hide behind to dodge responsibility for themselves or for others. There is a reason why it is called “dogma” and why people are “indoctrinated.” Freedom of thought and formulation of truth should be inalienable rights however religious leaders/participants are intolerant of these two concepts. Control IS the agenda of all religion. Look at the woman shrouded from view, the rules and punishment that befall them if they disobey (and why is it only women must live this way???) in some religious practices? It’s all backward nonsensical superstition. If religion brings an individual comfort, then fine. But religious view points that insist upon formulating policies and laws around religion, invoking an attitude of intolerance and a culture of hatred for those different is toxic and will result in the demise of our world if people don’t wake up.

    • gannddr

      George Carlin must have forgotten about the evil of abortion, that alone has killed over 53 million babies. These are the reported ” legal ” deaths from abortions.

      • nightowwl

        Stop confusing your belief system with absolute truth. The men who raped and killed those little girls believed they were justified because their belief system says women are disposable. Just like you, they believe their version of the truth is THE truth.

    John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He(the devil)was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own:(not of God)for he is a liar, and the father of it.

    John 3:16-21 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

    19 And this is the condemantion, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

    20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

    21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

  • plainlyspoken

    To the “bible prophecy has come true” commentors: Seriously? That’s because zealots ensure that things will happen according to their concept of what should happen. It’s called “self-fulling prophecy.” Take a good look at the bible. It’s a beautiful (in some places) piece of fiction, full of fantastic tales and actions that are not possible. If, in a thousand years, someone finds a copy of Harry Potter, what would you think if they followed it as the guide for a society? Hatred, intolerance and tiny, closed minds scare me more than anything else and they typically come attached to bible thumpers.

    • suzette patrone

      It is a very unfortunate thing that those of us who are Christians have so many really awful, hateful people who say they are Christians as well. I believe that some of the deepest wounds are inflicted by “christians”. If more people would just respect others, show more kindness and not throw the Bible at everyone (metaphorically speaking, of course) perhaps we would do better with each other. I understand full well why so many people are disenchanted with Christianity and religion in general. Sometimes I am as well.

    Satan is having field day with his followers.
    Know God or No God
    Man has a choice and one life to live it out. Take the gift of
    accepting Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord…..the only other
    option is hell….and it won’t take a murder or rape to end up there.
    It’s denial and refusal not to accept God and his mercy and grace; thus: you become Satans.
    Man has been given a choice and tomorrow may be too late.

      @Carol I agree that people have become more brutal and without self control as the bible states. They are definitely serving their master. I have already chosen Jesus!

      Carol not everyone believes in your God. The fact that men kill to prove their God is the one-and-only is a symptom of a greater disease.

      The men who raped and killed those girls felt justified because of their beliefs. People die every day defending their beliefs. To what purpose? My belief is better than your belief! No, my belief is right and yours is wrong! Until we start to question why we are willing to kill over a belief system, the world will never change.

      That is the kind of fatalist thinking that is hurtling us toward war that WILL end humanity. Selfish and narcissistic. How about a different approach? One that is NON patriarchal and doesn’t involve beating, killing, raping, or hurting others in any way? Society has to be retaught how to love and accept love. Taught that parenting matters. Taught that other people are of value. There has to be tolerance and acceptance instead of shaming and control of women, gays, children, sexuality and so on. This damage comes from an atmosphere of repression. MEN are destroying the world with their need for violence and control over everything and everyone (CHENEY, BUSH, NORTH KOREAN LEADER, IRANIAN LEADERS). Good grief…

      • nightowwl

        I’ve advocated a complete reboot of humanity myself, so I get where dick is coming from.

        You are right about the effects of a patriarchal society. The degradation and subjugation of women is the reason for our decline. We either evolve to the point where women are no longer devalued, or we continue down a path of hate, violence and greed. I don’t see any other options.

    India has a history of treating females as second class. It is ingrained in their society. There are many man who are upset that women are protesting because of unfair treatment, so they retaliate. The women in the United States experience something very similar not that long ago. Unfortunately, this is nothing new. If anyone is a true believer of Jesus and what he represented then you would not be quoting from scripture.

If they don’t die from that they should just lay there until they are dead. My heart aches, my eyes are tearful for what happened to these innocent little girls. May they be in peace and with each other and feel no more pain. I weep for them and only them. 3 INNOCENT LITTLE CHILDREN!!! No one should ever have to go through this.

Second There are laws and conditions which Govern this temporal life ,that we are here to work out our salvation. It is our choice to become corrupt if that is what we choose. If that is our choice you or I cannot change this. As for the family it is Heart wrenching to anyone who has a grain of compassion left in their soul. We Always support our fellow man in Prayer because after all it is our greatest Power Given in this Life! As for the ones who choose to remain Filthy still, Such will have to reap what their rewards too!

      Priya, two things. First, you are assuming everyone is christian and therefore they read a bible. Typical of a bible thumper. I am not christian (and thankful I am not) and I do not go by what the bible says.

      And two, there are those of us out here who practice older religions than christianity and to some of us, YES the earth is our Mother.

      Yes, everyone has a choice and a lot choose not to be christian, usually with good reason. So you can stop preaching at people and telling them what to do and by that how they should feel.

    • Matthew

      Hey Priya, you can be a Christian all you want, but please don’t think that just because you state you’re a Christian, that means you’re almighty. He is entitled to be heard as much as you. You don’t have to silence him. Even though, that does sound silly because we’re all typing anyways. If John believes in Mother Earth, let him. John, not sure who you addressed, but they must have learned something other than you. But Priya, please don’t force your beliefs over his or anyone else. If you don’t like what you read, stop reading it. What if someone doesn’t have a Bible, but a Tibetan Kangyur, Buddists texts, the Book of Mormon, or the Quran? Why is your book better that their readings? There are other religions out there. And why? Partly due to not all Christians believe in the same things. Christianity is a tree trunk while others branched off in a different direction. But I would like to think that others agree when I say you’re not acting very Christian-like. Whoever doesn’t agree, I’m okay with that. As far as the Pope position, I didn’t know John was on the election ballot since the job is available. But I hope you have a wonderful day and there’s no reason to yell at him.

      As for the main topic, that was a horrible act. I can say to give them the same treatment and justice would be served, but that is my initial angry reaction when I read this article. But I would not really wish it on anyone. I would hope justice is served quickly to get the person(s) who did this off the streets.

        Although I agree it isn’t just that this is India, I agree that there is something seriously wrong over there. GANG rape is on another level. Rape, murder – BAD, Gang Rape, murder – in human. Why is this so prominent there? Rather than fight with people that agree with you (that this is wrong), focus on WHY it is happening in INDIA weekly? There is something going on, so they need to freaking figure out what.

  • Joe Juarez

    India is a land of great ancient scientific discovery, cultural arts,outstanding ancient and modern Architecture, mathmatics (they invented Arithmatic), and soon a Mars mission. Yet, Innocent women cannot go home from work and innocent school girls cannot walk home from school with a general feeling of safety.

    Now here in USA we do have tens of thousands of unsolved rape and murder cases. We have sex offenders being arrested and later convicted for their crimes almost every day.
    It seems as if, maybe on a per capita basis, that these crimes have always happened with regular frequency. However, now this bad news is not only a community or regional problem. Instead sex offences have become more and more a World Wide Problem. Not that these problems were ever less prevailent, but that (through a modern electronic communication system) we as a Human Race have been made even more aware of this, truly, Psycho-Pandemic Human tragety.

    • melrog

      Rape and murder generally is horrific. GANG rape and murder is on another level of disgusting. Add in that these were children and it is absolutely unbelievable. What kind of freaks are in India? I love the Indian people I know here in the U.S., so cannot understand what the hell is going on over there. These are not men, they are selfish pieces of crap.

    India is becoming one of the highly unsafe places in this world, with perverts let loose. Rape in India is so rampant and funnily there are no laws to apprehend and punish the culprits. If the earlier culprits had been punished severely, the so called desperate, perverted, sadistic evil specimen in the disguise of MEN will not even attempt, leave alone dream on this heinous crime. Are the law-keepers and law-makers sleeping? Why are all these incidents being taken so lightly and why does the so called system takes ages to trace and punish the culprits? Hear only heated debates and big talks about RAPE, RAPE VICTIMS, RAPE CULPRITS and empty promises by the government, in reality no steps are taken to curb and wipe out this horrendous crime. Heart bleeds whenever we hear such incidents and fear our daughters safety in India.

        I personally have friends who are Muslim, Hindi, Catholic, Baptist, etc. and not once, have I questioned my security around them based on our religious differences. IF anything, the RESPECT we have for each other’s religious differences has united us.

        Marcus, Islam (being a Muslim) is not a race, it is a religion. In India this kind of crime has been rare until recently. The girls were going home from school. Only one group in India objects to girls getting an education and believes that rape and murder are appropriate punishments.
        So whether you like it or not, they were probably fanatic Muslims. They are doing this kind of thing all over the Middle East. But not all Muslims are guilty, just the fanatics.

    I would rather go through life believing in God and die and go to heaven, than not believe and die and find out I was wrong and find my self in the lake of fire for eternity. God does not send anyone to hell, we chose where we spend eternity by the way we live and believe. If you want to spend eternity in the lake of fire keep on denying God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Ghost.

    Matthew 10:33 But whosoever therefore shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

    Romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath reised him(Jesus)from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

First of all, there is no word in the original Greek or Hebrew texts for a place of continual punishment. That is a lie perpetuated by Christianity. For these girls, hell was here on Earth. For millions of women world wide, hell is here on Earth. There are many devout believers in India, not perhaps to your way of thinking religion should be, but they are true to their faith. For you to throw your particular brand of religion as a solution to their social issue is seriously sickening. Go beat your bible somewhere else.

Gehenna is the Greek word for “Hell” which jesus talks of as the place “where the fire is never quenched and the where the worm does not die.” Christianity is not the “correct” religion or the “true” religion because there is no such thing as one true religion. As all people were made equal in God’s likeness and image so all relgions are equal too.

    • Jenna

      Your idea of god is a very scary one. I would hope that if there was a just god or gods in the universe, they would judge a person by the good that they did in their life, and not whether or not they went to church every week.

  • a past child victim, myself

    There is a special place for the people that commit these crimes, much less a crime like this involving children. God bless and protect all the children, and I pray that these bastards will be found as ALL the vermin that are hiding with the same crimes on thier hands or those with any intent to harm children. You siken me and you sicken God and believe me, you WILL pay for your crimes in this life or the next, not even you will live forever, just keep that in mind if you have sense enough to read this.

  • Bill

    Damn Obama!!!

    • Len

      What does President Obama has to do with this? When will the hating stop? I suggest you try Jesus.

      • Squeakers

        What does Obama have to do with something that happened in India?. He’s the president of the U.S.,and it’s about time you got over it!. Pray that nothing like this hideous crime happens to someone in your family. (Idiot)

    We are no one to judge, as humans, for those who judge shall be judged and those who condemn shall be condemned, but let God be judge over all things and he will decide the correct fate for every being that walks this earth. Justice will always prevail and the Lord will decide how to bring this about for the Murderers. It is not our right to say that this man or this murderer should be killed but God knows what is correct in all ways of life. Do not be so quick to judge others that you also do not judge yourself. There is no one greater than the other and no being greater than God. To blame this on someone else of a different religion is wrong. Just as you cannot blame all Muslims for the actions of one terrorist so you cannot also blame every Christian for the actions of one who does not follow the teachings of Christ yet calls themself “Christian” and speaks hate to others. I say I am servant to all whom Christ has willed it and bless all who see this. Peace,Shalom and Salam Alaikum to every soul. Amen.

    • Trish

      Blah, blah, blah. These people are despicable. There is NO question about that.

      • Voice of Peace

        Christ has said not to judge no matter how evil someone may be it is still never right to make a judgement about someone else. You wouldn’t like someone calling you these things so don’t say them to others

      • Voice of Peace

        The greatest commandment of the ten is this “Love others as you love yourself”. So love one another and submit yourselves to God if that is the path you choose to follow.

    The mindless monsters who carried out these abominable acts and murdered the three little girls, don’t deserve to breathe the air we all breathe.

    The childrens’ lived were brutally cut short for the brief sexual satisfaction of a gang of subhumans who mistakenly call themselves men.

    India needs to act now and find and destroy the perpetrators, along with the six in December last year whose actions stunned the world.

    The fact that a number of males have no respect for females or children and dispose of them the way they do, is shocking and executing those men is the only appropriate course of action.

  • Bill

    I did that as a joke. Because it never fails, no matter what happens, people blame him for everything. I assumed he caused this, some how.

  • Stephanie

    What the hell is going on in India!? My friends who live in the US that are from India are very upset about these incidents, as am I and my family, has this always happened and not previously been in the media, or has there been a change in social structure? What gives?!

  • George

    Do not lump all muslims as murderers. THe basic muslim belief parallels that of christianity. The individuals responsible for this unspeakable act are murderers and will be termed as such and hopefully suffer the consequences of their actions. I am a white, christian believer who has experienced a greater knowledge of Islam through one of our ministers whose doctoral program conveys such knowledge.

  • j

    3rd world garbage ppl. how many thousands of years of culture and you just dont know how to act. time to get some real education outside of your crap universities in your crap country.. anyone there should simply look for a way out. tell me im wrong. realistically.

  • roberta

    st rape is a crime of violence, not sexual gratification. It is brutal and senseless . and anyone who could do such horrid things to children are not human they are monsters. You wouldn’t think twice about killing a rabid animal. these guys don’t rate that high. It’s been said and I agree, humans are the only animals who kill simply for the pleasure of it. If there is no deterent , major deterent it’s going to keep happening. As is obvious by the rise in rapes in india lately.

  • danielinman@sbcglobal.net

    Most Indians follow Hinduism. There are comparatively few Muslims. To assume the attackers were Muslims is ignorant.

    • Michelle

      Thank You. I thought that comment was also ignorant.

  • John

    This is amazing this even made the news. There have been millions of girls who are raped and murdered in india. When stupid people believe that the only way to get cured of their sexual disease is to have sex with a virgin, it is no wonder that these girls were targets. Philiospies and respect for women needs change in India and the rest of the world too. Stop the violence, go and make a difference in somebodies life by getting out of your comfort zone, and touching their life with yours.

  • Sammie

    We are living in out last days it is extremely sad that these babies had to fall into the hands of jerks, I hope they find these Jack-A$$ soon so they can be put to death as well those who sat on their butts for lack of humanity to file the report. One thing is to take their innocents but to murder them are you serious was it necessary to do either one.

  • http://www.accurateinvestigation.com Gladys Brierley

    Dear Lord Jesus, please send REVIVAL to India and save the children from the hands of these demonic forces. Lord God save the children all over the world from evil demons who want to use our childrens’ body’s for their own perversion and expose the darkness.

  • connie

    What a sad,sad story. Just breaks my heart. I really hope they find the jerks who did this. Just plain Sad! And, may those little ones Rest in Peace.

  • Shelli

    This is more than sad, it’s testiment to how little India is doing to help stop these crimes. They’ve treated women so poory for so long, the men act as if they are allowed to do whatever they want and it’s only when there’s a cry from the public will the law do anything.

    Men outnumber women so greatly, there are so many orphans who live on the streets it’s no wonder there are so few with any moral values. Its sickening.

    Check what you’re buying, if it says Made In India, put it back on the shelf, don’t support any country who treats their citizens so poorly. Same goes for the garbage made in China.

    • John

      Right don’t support the countries and then watch them fall into further turmoil. Yeah, that’ll really help the situation.

  • Laura

    As a survivor of sexual abuse from the age of 3 to 18, by four different men, two of which were family, I am deeply saddened that the world is still stifled when it comes to recognizing this problem and taking action to find treatments for potential pedophile and sick people. I once read that vaccines cause brain swelling in areas that may control sexual impulsivity. It has made me wonder if the rise in attacks is the effect but the cause is due to brain damage. Functioning brain scans f-spects do show damages to this area. If we want to protect our children we need to address the cause of the problem at a mental and physical level. My prayers are for all innocent children who live with the ptsd caused by childhood sexual abuse. May this tragedy bring awareness to make change happen because no child deserves this and no parent alone can help heal this. Do check out the EFT therapy for healing this type of ptsd. As a 48 year old survivor I know we need to do something world wide. Thanks for listening.

    • Rhonda

      Thank you for sharing.

    This is one of the most horrible things I have read in an age…I hope they find those bastards and string them up. I am the father of a three year old and if anything like this remotely happened to my daughter, god help the scum if I ever found them. Evil bastards

    This SEXUAL CRIME is so vile, so evil and so shockingly hideous! This is precisely why this hateful scourge of evil rapists in your society must be dealt with by the harshest of means and that is the death penalty! The entire world is watching this and now fully recognizes the poisonous infestation that is ravaging your country! These animals are worse than the TALIBAN in Afghanistan. INDIA, SHAME ON YOU!!!

  • XxXxXx

    10-1 it was a bunch fo muslims that did it , considering they marry people in that age group , which quite frankly is sickening.and they think there’s nothing wrong with it @ all , yukk

    • Michelle

      That was an ignorant comment. Are all the child rapists in the United States Muslims? Last time I checked a lot of the men on the sex offenders list are white American Men! Every race and religion has evil people, it has nothing do with religion or race! SO are the Catholic Priest that molest young boys, are they undercover Muslims? Not everything bad in the world is caused by Muslims. My heart goes out to the family of the little girls. I hope they catch the SOB that did this and castrate him or worse!!

      • Indian

        Thank you for being smart enough to not stereotype.

    This is awful. Whoever done this should also be killed. They were so young and had their whole life ahead of them. It is a shame.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of
    the girls. This is horrible! :(

    This is disgusting! So now men are raping children? This makes me ashamed to be a human I hope they catch them castrate them and them kill them or send them to a horrible prison. I hope the woman there revolt, raise hell, come together and make change happen, or carry a gun…

    IT STILL STINKS IN INDIA (1): 3-year old child was brutally raped in Kotu Kata area in Bhilwara, Jaipur on February 12. 20-year old Asharam Kumar, a resident of the area, kidnapped the sleeping girl from her Nomadic family, took her to a nearby forest, raped her, beat her up, and savagely chewed her lips and other parts of her face. She was found, crying, in a pool of blood. 14 year-old girl brutally gang-raped in Haridwar district, by Ankit Deshraj, Deepak and Ankit Naresh. 12-year old boy raped a 6-year old girl in Kiran Nagar, Bhopal. The victim’s mother found her daughter at a construction site with the boy. In Bihar, a 45-year old woman and mother of 4 was found gang-raped and hanging from a tree in Bhagalpur. In Punjab, on January 11, a 29-year old woman was travelling home on a bus. She was the last passenger on the bus along with the bus conductor and bus driver. They drove past her stop to a remote spot and, along with 5 friends, gang-raped her all night. 11-year old girl, still in hospital, was gang-raped by Suresh Jat, Ramesh Sharma and 4 others on August 20, 2012 in Sikar, Rajasthan. She was pulled off the street into a vehicle while walking with her older sister. She required 14 reconstructive surgeries to repair her vagina, rectum, and internal organs. She lays in hospital all day, crying inconsolably. Four little girls, one as young as 5, were brutally raped by a sadistic 40-year old grocery store owner, Rabi Lochan Dey, in West Bengal’s Bankura district on January 3. The little ones had gone to his grocery store to buy a cake. On the pretense of getting them cake, he lured them to a side room and savagely raped them. The incident only came to light when one of the little girls passed blood in her urine. 2-year old toddler monstrously raped by 32 year old Keshav Joshi in Halol town, near Vadodara. After barbarically raping her, he threw her away into the bushes. The toddler passed away 3 days later on December 25, 2012. In January, a 7-year old little girl was raped in the school toilet at Deepvihar High School in the city of Vasco da Gama in Goa state. The 20+-year old male dragged the child into the toilet during recess where he raped her. School management tried to cover up the rape by washing the girl and the toilet where the heinous sexual crime was committed. 3 young girls, aged 6, 8 and 11, went missing February 14 in Lakhani village, Bhandara district in Maharashtra state. Police failed to take action and shamefully ruled the deaths ‘accidental’ or ‘suicide’. Two days later, a villager found them dead at the bottom of a well. Villagers had to demand action, by blocking the roads and burning tires, before a medical examination revealed the girls had been brutally raped, sodomized, and murdered. (cont’d)

  • Marisol

    IT STILL STINKS IN INDIA (2): 18-year old girl was gang-raped in Punjab state November 13. Police harassed the girl, refused to take action, and, shockingly, pressured the girl to marry one of her attackers. She swallowed poison and died. In December, 2012, a playschool was sealed in Paathshala, at Sagarpur in West Delhi after a 3-year old girl was allegedly sedated and raped by the owner’s husband. On February 11, in Rotary Nagar in Kodichikkanahalli, Madiwalli, near Bangalore, 5-year old little Mamatha was lured away from her home with a promise of chocolates by 19-year old Mahesh Nanjundaiah, a neighbour. In attempting to rape her, she screamed and he strangled her to death. That evening, he threw little Mamatha’s body into a bush near a construction site. She was found the next morning in a mud heap covered in bruises, severe external injuries and bite marks. One eyeball had popped out. On February 9, a 50-year old man was attempting to rape a 2-year old toddler in the courtyard of his house in Pratap Nagar Sector 9, Jaipur. Chhotu Harijan, the accused, is the girl’s grandfather. Neighbours came to the toddler’s aid. The body of a 22-year old mentally challenged girl was found with her head smashed by a stone in Karauli’s Hindaun town on February 9. Her body was found, naked, the next morning in a mustard farm. 7-year old girl was repeatedly raped by 32-year old Shashikant Ojha in Sahar’s Sai Nagar in Mumbai. For over two months, he raped her several times and threatened to slit her throat if she told anyone. After the child began feverishly screaming in her sleep, her parents coaxed the story out of her. Ojha had the sick audacity to not only admit to having ‘intercourse’ with the little girl, but also shamefully said: “There’s nothing wrong with it.” 2-year old infant was allegedly raped by an 18-year old male in Minapara village near the city of Raigani, West Bengal on January 5. The sleeping infant was left unattended when the mother went to wash clothes in a nearby pond. 6-year old girl found at Gurgaon-Delhi border, howling, in a pool of blood. She had been kidnapped, brutally raped, sodomized and dumped by the side of the road on February 10. She suffered extensive internal and external injuries and is currently undergoing major reconstructive surgeries. 1-year old infant raped by 15-year old neighbour who barged into the home on February 13 in Nuttam Nagar, West Delhi. The mother was in the next room and, upon hearing her infant’s cries, was alerted. By that time, the infant had been raped and the teenaged had fled.

    @Ronald Thomas

    1. What crime? If there is no God and we are all just here by time+matter+chance, then why is anything right or wrong? There is no meaning or grand design right? We are just organisms dancing to our DNA

    2. Why is it wrong for them to have done this to these girls? If there is no God, then how can we assign intrinsic value to these girls whereby we say their suffering is evil? Oh, but we have established that there are no objective moral values already so there is no intrinsic value. They are just random mutations of cellular life.

    3. Define ‘bad’? If there is no God, then there is no meaning, so no moral objective values so there is no good or bad for that matter

    4. How can we demand our freedom from God so we aren’t robots and yet get angry with Him when we abuse that freedom?

    5. Again, if we are just random mutations of cells, why should we care what happens to anyone regardless of age or gender?

    6. Why must we rely on each other for help? We have established we aren’t of any value or design, just random mutations.

    7. Why must we be good to each other? That is assigning objective moral values to humanity.

    8. Again, why is it the right thing to do?

    9. You say you don’t want anything to control you or dictate what you are supposed to think and feel and yet you are angry that God did not do just that when He allowed this to happen. And it should be noted that you are doing that very thing by dictating to us what our morality should be without a source other than your own personal preferences for that morality.

  • Indian

    Quite depressing to see how people go about bashing Indian men and blame the culture,morals,the government and what not!Seems people feel they are the only ones who understand what human rights are.I would suggest you people to read “rape statistics” on wikipedia and read statics for every country(your own too.I hope you will realize that it is a problem which is existent in both developed and developing countries.Also,it would be great if people realize that we are not lesser humans and have respect and love for our women.-An Indian male.
