Q.

Shattered by the verdict, the parents of the Delhi gang-rape victim broke down. "We feel cheated. It's a crime to be born a girl in this country," they said.

"The juvenile accused has been convicted in all charges. They are encouraging him by giving him only three years punishment. Such people can never change," said the brother. Dont you think 3 years is not a right punishment in r*pe cases wherein after being in prison...they might do the same crime again???? A stricter law is needed for all r*pe cases whether its for adults or juvenile ???

It is like applying salt on the open wound. but they would be killed by people once they are out of the jail after 3 years for sure. it is really an insult. if this is our law and order, better not to follow the law and use our own laws to get the justice.

Too soft a punishment, which will, taking as a precedent, will go unabatedly. Courts in the US also treat such juveniles on par with the adults, given the gravity of the culpable crime.

The situation of the parents would be very hard to think about. laws cannot change the sadistic indian male mindset. giving compensation to normal people is the maz a govt can do in India. their role is over. As the father said yes "its a crime to be born as girl in this stupid country"

If law makers don't change the law as per the will of the people, people will change the law makers and may also take law in their own hands to deliver the justice that they think is right.
