It doesn't matter if she is wearing a burqa, a saree, a dress or nothing. No one has the right to tamper her, to judge her, to exploit her or rape her. Not you, not me...No one
There are times when I feel helpless and scared that maybe next time I will be the one who will be grouped by the cancerous men in a crowded bus. I will be the next victim for whom they will say that it’s my father’s fault that he taught me to independent that he allowed me to be what I wanted to be.
It’s not my fault you know it, I know it, the society knows it then why are we the one who gets slammed by everyone.
Then why there is always a person who advices my father that your daughter is too ambitious. Is being too ambitious a crime?
To every girl reading this, I m sorry for every time someone passed a lewd comment, I am sorry every time you felt miserable because of some cancerous men around you.
It’s not you. It’s not your clothes; it’s not your ambitions. It’s not your fault.
Because Rape is never the victims fault. It is their fault who stopped behaving like human beings and started behaving like animals.
I feel disappointed that we live in a society where women are worshipped and on the side they are exploited, tortured, and burnt alive. We don’t want to be worshipped; all we want is a little respect and dignity.
We are Sorry for disappointing you big time.
