The Protector - 4
A seven year old girl of different community
abducted and raped repeatedly
by a few ruling party members,
holding her captive in a temple.
Their cruelty and fanaticism
know no bounds, they invited
friends and relatives far and wide
to 'enjoy' the ‘other' community girl;
three long days and nights
she, a baby of just seven,
endured such inhuman torture,
then they strangled the little one.
Because she belonged to the ‘other' community.
Members of parliament
and legislative assemblies
belonging to the ruling party
came out in open, to defend
the rapist-murderer beasts.
But for the independent media
police would not even register a case;
the vigilant media chased the case
to its logical conclusion and
the beasts have been convicted.
There is a ray of hope, still!
