Nirbahaya Rape Case - Why now?

Recently there has been a lot of fuss about the ban imposed by the Indian Government on BBC's documentary 'India's Daughter'. The documentary was about the 'Nirbhaya Rape Case', the brutal rape case in Delhi on 16th December,2012. There was a vivid discussion in the Parliament about whether the documentary should be aired in India or not. And finally the Government decided for the latter. The reasons given by the government was that we need not publicise rapists and heinous criminals for people to realise the seriousness of the crime that is rape.

Nirbhaya Case-Why now?
 
 
But we have one interesting question to ask. The documentary was made and ready to be launched in 2013. The judgements were already passed by the Indian judiciary, which is a very rare occurrence. The judgements were quick and just. Just what the courts should have done. But the impetus of the documentary was never on the judgements. It was about displaying the mentality of Indian men. It was about arousing the feminists and making women aware of their rights. The demands were fair and just. Then, why wasn't the documentary released back then?  
 
I also have an interesting statistic here, wym-1425722108360 . The rape rate in India is 2 per lakh people, in UK it is 24.1 per lakh people and 28.6 per lakh people in the USA. We accept that the views shown in the documentary are those of Indian men and those views are excruciatingly disgusting. Why is the BBC not concerned about the country of its origin. We totally agree that the BBC is being sympathetic toward the exploited women of India. But what about the women of UK and the USA. Don't they need any representation of the atrocities that they have to face?  

 
Let's see the problem through a new angle,a new perspective. Mr. Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister of the country in May 2014. The BJP got a clear majority in the General Elections. The country had opted for development over Casteism/Regionalism/Religion. The Government introduced the 'Make in India' campaign. A well thought of plan that is likely to bring in billions of investment into the country. And it already is. The MNC's suddenly found a new home to invest in. A place that was way cheaper than the USA. A place where all sorts of employees were readily available. A place which not only was a manufacturing hub but also an enormous market for all sorts of products. And the World Powers got a little jealous. Why should a Third World Country run away with all the prizes? And thus, they deployed the same old policy of 'Divide and Rule'. 

Nirbhaya Rape Case-Why now?

 
They pit the Indians against their own kin. And they succeeded. Suddenly, the country is divided. And it is not 'For and Against Rape'. It is 'For and Against the Government'. Suddenly, the trust of the citizens is shaken in the Government. And who would like to invest in a country which lacks self conviction. Who would trust a country which does not trust its government.


Poor India. We were almost there.
