An Indian Civilizational Perspective

11 year girl burnt for trying lipstick

jaipurgirl-burnt_248.jpgNazmeen is 11 years. She wanted to try on some lipstick but her grandfather was not amused. When she challenged him by putting on the lipstick, the 55 year old Saleem (who runs a shop) got up, angry…. and molested her.. beat her up.. and then put her on fire. She is in a very critical situation.

The girl has made a statement and urged whoever can listen – “to punish him’!!

“The accused has been charged under section 307 – attempt to murder – and section 354 – molestation. We interrogated neighbours and the family and they have confirmed what happened,” Mohan Singh (Superintendent of Police) said.

It is shameful that so many years after our independence we have not educated people enough to make the correct decisions in life. Imagine the pain given to that little girl – all FOR trying lipstick???
