Question The "Panchayat" Solution to the Rape Problem

Is this really bizarre or just the reporter's opinion ? I don't recall the case off-hand, but in the past the judges have been lenient in the cases where the parties decided to marry.

Panchayat orders girl to marry her rapist
Purusharth Aradhak, TNN | Apr 26, 2013, 03.40AM IST

BULANDSHAHR: A panchayat in Bulandshahr passed a bizarre diktat on Thursday ordering a man to get married to the girl who was sexually assaulted by him three days ago. The girl had been alone when her neighbour's guest entered the house, gagged and raped her. The victim later informed her family about the incident. The accused is a resident of Kasna in Gautam Budh Nagar district.

The victim's family then approached the police. By then the accused went to the panchayat and asked them to hush up the matter. The panchayat ordered the accused to get married to the girl. They even threatened the girl's family if they did not follow the diktat.

The family had approached the Bulandshahr SSP Gulab Singh but failed to get any respite. Later, after the matter came into the media, the accused was arrested and an FIR lodged under Section 354 of the IPC.

Re: The "Panchayat" Solution to the Rape Problem

Castrate the rapist and make him suffer before pouring acid over his mutilated genitals and the rest of his body. Dismiss the panchayat, bulldoze and erase the entire village off the map. That will be my solution.

Re: The "Panchayat" Solution to the Rape Problem

There was a news sometime back where a lady had accused a man of rape.

She told the authorities that she is ready to withdraw the charges if the man marries her.

So, lets not pass our judgments. There may be other aspects to any issue.

These kind of marriages are made out of perverse social compulsions, not free will on part of the poor women involved.

Exactly. The poor girl does not have a choice. If she does not marry the bastard the Indian society will not let her live. If she gets pregnant due to the rape, even the child will be tortured.

Re: The "Panchayat" Solution to the Rape Problem

Re: The "Panchayat" Solution to the Rape Problem

Each case is different, of course. But if the two decide mutually to get married and get on with their lives, then it's ok if the the courts show them some mercy.

But to have a Panchayat pass a diktat about it shows an attempt to circumvent the law. Also note the police inaction in the matter. I bet it was the police who adviced this course of action to hush up the case

Re: The "Panchayat" Solution to the Rape Problem

The rapist offers to get married to her so that he escapes punishment,the girl agrees to marry so that she escapes social stigma,but will these type of marriages survive ?

Later he may get involved in another rape case and he would force the first victim to sign a divorce deed and offer to marry the latest victim of his lust and this way he would be pain for the society.

I feel rape cases if proven should not be withdrawn,in case the girl withdraws it the case should be against the accused v/s the state.After all rape is not a crime against a single person but against the society.
