#iamfordalits #mirakeeforhathras _______________________________ Crimes, oppression, voices lost Rapes, threats, promises false How many lives need to be extinguished How long in gutters of our filth will they languish? Ramon Magsaysay for Bezwada Wilson Couldn't quite open our eyes to this affliction Manual scavenging deaths are real These people are dalits can you not accept without fear?
How many Lakshmi Agarwal do we need to have To show that acid attacks are on our humanity a slap?
How many Nirbhayas and the one in Hathras will need to die To show us the trauma of woman lives?
How many Lakshmi Narayan Tripathi do we need to prove That trans lives are not allowed to bloom?
I think we'll take innumerable such lives to open our minds Million dalits, raped women, and lives like mine Before we accept we have screwed this system And take steps to eradicate such evils from the roots to stem It's this country we all belong Coming out of the labyrinth of prejudice is taking too long... _______________________________ Copyright Jaya Harfkaar October 3, 2020
//People saying they sit with dalits, respect women etc. Awesome. It's not about your individual acts but the general normalizing of caste and gender based atrocities//

Time was running out and with that her hopes too must be recieving extinction. This was what I interfered through noisy respirations and dark Halloween shadows beside the roadside . " No , please leave me .... Let me go home , I am sorry... Please let me go home, please I beg you ...I beg you...let me......" AND A LOUD CRY.................! THE yelling ended as I walked speedily ahead to reach familiar narrow streets which too now seemed too broad for me to cross . I reached my dorm and shut the door , I used to believe myself but now kept checking the door lock several times . I was gulping down the fear every passing moment which eventually killed my hunger and calmness. I laid down on the couch with the headphones to sooth my trembles and to forget the question , WHAT WOULD HAPPEN TO THAT GIRL ?.... Breathing deeper and deeper I felt into sweet dreams again .... I went to the world where I could say proudly, Ooh I belong to place where girls roam safely with their brothers ahead of them ... I belong to where forests beside highways don't receive dead naked girls anymore . I belong to the world , Where Goddess are not only seen in temple but within the insight of every wandering girl... I belong to the home where my brother is also warned to get in before 8:00 pm If he's no work outside the house so that my other sisters who have to walk on streets due to their duties should feel safe ...
TING TING.... Alarm rang and I saw myself in mirror as everyday, again to put some courage to step out . Dressing myself again I hoped that it won't be my turn to be undressed by anyone else this night too . I finally stepped out wishing that I will be able to step in again .
But you no sometimes its feel like we are writing at this platform and articles etc, and who gives time to read it, only one who mean it! But those evil people of the society will never give a look at these, ajooba is there powerful write ups everyday keep on writing, would surely have made a change!but I hope those who read it will try to influence more and spread awareness to take measures instead of waiting for the culprit to watch there black soul!
a_heavenly_medicine@unrevealed_me you're true sis , those heartless would never read it... But let's try to keep their number stable ... We can try to convince people who still have heart to keep their heart forever good
During the life time of Prophet Muhammad(peace be upon him), a rapist was punished based on only the testimony of the victim. Wa'il ibn hujr reported that a woman publicly identifies a man who had raped her. The people caught the man and brought him to the Prophet Muhammad(peace be upon him).He told the woman to go-that she was not to be blamed-and ordered that the man be put to death. #JusticeForManishaValmiki #JusticeforAsifa #JusticeForEveryVictim
The incident happened in the Gaisari area of the district. Balrampur Superintendent of Police Dev Ranjan Verma said the Dalit woman, working in a private firm, failed to return home in time on Tuesday evening, prompting her parents to start looking for her.
The woman’s parents said that she did not answer calls on her mobile phone, triggering panic among family members.
The woman, however, returned home shortly later in an autorickshaw with an intravascular cannula, medically known as Vigo and used for administering injection, glucose or other fluids in the body, inserted in her hand, the police said, quoting her parents.
The girl looked dazed and in a serious condition, prompting her parents to rush her to a nearby hospital, but she died on the way, said the SP.
When the matter was reported to the police from the hospital, the parents alleged that their daughter was gangraped, SP Verma said. Acting on the parent’s complaint, police identified the accused as Shahid and Sahil and arrested them, the SP said.
Prior to this, a Dalit teen was reportedly sexually attacked by four upper-caste men in Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras. The accused had tried to strangle her to death as she resisted their rape attempt and in the process, she had also ended up biting her tongue and suffering a severe cut on it. The four accused have been arrested. She lost her life at a Delhi hospital on Tuesday. The incident has drawn massive outrage across country, with Yogi government facing backlash for not doing enough for women’s safety in his state.
The body of the 20-year-old woman was cremated at around 3 AM by Uttar Pradesh police on Wednesday. If reports are to be believed, the UP Police forcibly performed the last rites without giving heed to the family’s repeated requests of bringing the body home first.
uttkarsh_15Back from some years... Media has Just become an PR agency for the govt. ... They try to cover the loopsides and mishandling of government by blaming opposition like they are running this country and not the govt. Really these dumba$$ tv news reporters need to get their brain operated somewhere. Recently I was seeing on a tv channel that a dalit girl (maybe 6 was raped in delhi) and the news reporter was explaining... How the opposition is playing politics in this whole matter... And not talking about the real Incident and what is the current status of this crime report and the police procedures... Either they are getting Justice or not.. .. Really govt. Ka pata nahi... Par yeh bik chuki hai media
harsh77@uttkarsh_15 yes bro media just want fuckin TRP ese kahi cases kaha burried ho jate pata bhi nahi chalta

My skin should be white For me to be a desirable bride My cheeks should be red Deserving of my husband's peck My hair should be black Long enough to pull after a smack My veil should be grey As I kneel five times to pray My womb should be green Fertile to produce harbingers of family esteem My mood should never be blue Forgetting myself for the whims of you In yellow of good fortune I should be draped Marital or otherwise I am fated to be raped Crimson of my sindoor and bangles Shattered my dreams in your thirsty tangles Gold of my dowry jewellery Always less enough to attract your mockery Thank you so much! For all these shades you forcefully painted on me So altered is my soul that I can't recall who I used to be... __________________________________ Copyright Jaya Harfkaar 30-9-20
The country in eyes of our leader does shine Why is it that today intellectuals whine When fate of poor with helplessness entwine When lives of Kashmir are silenced by deathly fines When women, children and trans are open for predators to dine Know that India is no more a land divine _________________________________ I'm an Indian woman and I'm in distress My land is scaling the moon, naming it scientific progress Yet mentality towards women and trans constantly regress My character constantly judged by my long or short dress No consent, no desires, no complaints all voices this government supress In a debacle of democracy now, these issues are hard to press _________________________________ Copyright Jaya Harfkaar 30-9-2020
