Mumbai: Yogita Bhayana, founder of NGO PARI (People Against Rapes in India), wrote a letter to Union Minister Smriti Irani on Thursday, demanding that the convicts of the 2012 Delhi gang-rape case to be hanged to be declared as ‘Rape Prevention Day’.
In the letter, Bhayana said that on the day of the execution, a daughter of India will get justice, however, there are many who remain the same for a long time.
“This decade has seen a number of heinous rape incidents from Nirbhaya to Unnao to Kathua, which at times have not been included in the news hour debate. However, these incidents have brought about a positive change,” the letter said.
The letter stated that the awareness created among the general public is contagious. We, the people of India, with a vision to create a sensitive society, have united in the war against rape in the country so that every woman in India can live without fear.
“The goal is high and the road to victory is long, yet we cannot give up. The hanging should not be seen as the end of a case but should mark a new era in India. Therefore, I declare this day I propose to do. ” Rape Prevention Day,” added the letter.
Bhayana said that such nomenclature would help every Indian to understand that Nirbhaya and her family had reaffirmed and reaffirmed their vows in the vision of rape-free India.
The activist also said that the hanging day is not a normal day as it would end the ordeal of a mother who fought like a lioness to get justice for her daughter.
The day will bring hope to all those who raised their hopes in the country’s top court to set an example against rape in India. On this day, hopefully, Nirbhaya, who cannot live to see it, will take a sigh of relief in the sky above us.
