It was back in 2012 when people hit the streets seeking justice for the Nirbhaya Rape victim. After the recent cases of Kathua, Unnao and Madrasa the whole nation has once again come together. Not only the common people but celebrities have also been constantly speaking up. Among the many, rapper Raftaar has never shied away from expressing whatever he feels. Whether it is the minor societal issues, child sex abuse, domestic violence or rape. This time again he has let out a message on social media but he focuses on the cause of the crime. With the help of Instagram post, Raftaar says that don't drag religion into everything. All religion opposes rape and us humans are responsible for this crime.
Yeh aaj repost karni padd rahi hai kyoki Madrase me jo hua uske liye bhi awaaz uthni chahiye. 10 saal ki bachi ka rape 17 saal ke ladke ne kiyaa. Log har cheez me dharam aur mazahab dhoondte hain. Madrasa Mandir Church Gurudwaroon ko doshi mat banao. Rape har dharam ke khilaaf hai. Insaan ki galti hai. Insaan ki aabroo lutt ti hai.While he said every girl is India's daughter, his main message was,
From today talk to our younger brothers and sisters. Teach them how and when to say Yes and No. Also, teach them that touching and doing things to other people without their consent is wrong. And it will lead to very bad consequences. Let them develop a fear of these crimes. Only the existence of fear will let people know the value of loveAdds Raftaar in his post. After all the protests, Indian law did change a bit. The Union Cabinet cleared a stringent ordinance on Saturday providing for lengthy jail terms and even the death penalty for sex offenders convicted for raping girls below the age of 12 years while the punishment for the gang-rape of a victim below 16 will be imprisonment for life.
