Opinion | Aaj ki Baat April 12 episode: Rajat Sharma on why perpetrators of Kathua gangrape deserve harshest punishment

It does not matter which religion or community the victim or the perpetrators belonged to because such culprits do not deserve to be called human beings.

An eight-year-old girl, belonging to Bakerwal community of shepherds in Kathua, Jammu and Kashmir, was first abducted and then gangraped for several days before she was brutally murdered. One shudders in horror after reading details about the inhuman and horrendous torture the victim went through. 

It does not matter to which religion or community the victim belonged to. It also does not matter to which religion or community the perpetrators of this dastardly crime belong to, because such culprits do not deserve to be called human beings. 

It is a question of humanity and we do not need politicians to explain that. The question is, what should be done now: the victim must get justice, and the perpetrators of the gruesome crime should get a deterrent punishment, which should be an eye-opener for all. Such acts of inhumanity lowers the trust and confidence that the common people have in law and it brings a bad name to the country on the world stage.
