Delhi bus rapist blames dead victim for attack because 'girls are responsible for rape'

One of the men convicted of gang raping a woman on a bus in Delhi has blamed his victim for the fatal attack, saying “girls are far more responsible for rape” than men.

 

The 23-year-old physiotherapy student died of horrific injuries two weeks after being assaulted by six men as she travelled home from the cinema with a male friend.

 

Among them was Mukesh Singh, who claims he was driving the bus during the incident on 16 December 2012 and did not take part

 

In an interview with the BBC from prison, where he is awaiting execution, he referred to the woman’s murder as “an accident” caused by her being out at night.

 

“A decent girl won't roam around at nine o'clock at night,” he said.

 

“A girl is far more responsible for rape than a boy. Boys and girls are not equal.

 

“Housework and housekeeping is for girls, not roaming in discos and bars at night doing wrong things, wearing wrong clothes.

 

“About 20 per cent of girls are good.”

 

Police said his victim, known as “Jyoti”, meaning “flame”, was found with multiple wounds and had also been raped with metal bars, causing catastrophic internal injuries.

 

She and her friend were thrown from the moving bus and 13 days of extensive medical treatment could not save her.

 

Jyoti’s death sparked a wave of unprecedented protests across India and the world and five of the perpetrators were sentenced to death.

 

The Indian public also gave her other names, including Jagruti (“awareness”), Amanat (“treasure”), Nirbhaya (“fearless one”).

 

BBC Four is airing a documentary on the rape and its impact on 8 March.

 

Speaking to interviewers for the Storyville programme, to be aired on International Women’s Day, Singh is seen suggesting the rape and beatings were to teach Jyoti and her friend a lesson.

 

He criticised her for resisting her attackers, saying: “When being raped, she shouldn't fight back.

 

“She should just be silent and allow the rape. Then they'd have dropped her off after doing her and only hit the boy.”

 

Her male friend was badly beaten and suffered broken limbs but survived to testify against Singh and the five other men at their trial.

 

Singh was sentenced to death by hanging for Jyoti’s rape and murder, along with four others.

"There was an article about an 11 year old girl who was gangraped in Texas by 18 young men because she was dressed like a 21-year-old prostitute," she said. "And her parents let her attend school like that. And I think it’s incumbent upon us to create some areas where students can be safe in school and show up in proper attire so what happened in Texas doesn’t happen to our students."

The **** that happens in rural India that goes unreported would be much worse.  The reported ones are bad enough.  I've read one report where 5 brothers are all sharing the same wife because there's not enough women in the village.  They were abusing the **** out of her too

I think this is a much deeper issue than one moron condoning his own vile actions though.  

 

Abhorrent as his stance is, I suspect there is quite some sympathy for it in large swathes of Indian culture.  It's that broader cultural issue that breeds these kind of problems.  Changing that will take some doing....

It fits into the generalized "blame the victim" mentality.

 

Universally human.
