Here's how giving a death penalty to rapists is the right thing to do

Rape
Rape is a heinous crime and the rapists should not be set free.

By SALIL GEWALI

The horrendous acts committed by four boys provoked nationwide outrage. The accused, after the premeditated rape, had set the victim’s body on fire. Nothing could be as shocking as this. Thank God today those four got shot dead in an encounter. I salute the police even if it is a fake encounter. What more we need more than the confession by the criminals. The “evil” must be done away with by all means at the earliest. Else, the rapists will be set free within a few months/years. This again will only embolden other sadists.

Rape punishment
The monsters who raped Nirbhaya in 2012 were awarded with a sewing machine along with the cash prize of Rs 10000/-.

I’m afraid, there is no shortage of leaders and so-called “activists” in the country who stand up and scream to defend the criminals of high order. The monsters who raped Nirbhaya in 2012 was awarded with a sewing machine along with the cash prize of Rs 10000/-. Who proposed this beastly idea? It was by our leaders. Why didn’t we condemn such leaders first? Tolerating the evil is itself a big sin.

This is nothing but allowing to rape the body of society!  Therefore, I fear certain “leaders and activists” of modern times that question the values of humanity, but keep mum, or defend evil of a “certain” kind.
