The Rape of a Baby in India - Decadence of a Fractured Society

The BBC-News reports this morning that there is an outcry in India after an-eight-month-old baby was raped by her 28-year-old cousin. 

An outcry is too soft a reaction to such a barbaric inhumane offense. The women and girls of India should be up in arms and fuming mad to demand an immediate change to a culture, which has somehow allowed too many women and girls to be raped by sex-deprived degenerates who often are not prosecuted or too leniently punished for such heinous acts against civility.

The rape of this innocent baby - too young to walk or to talk or to defend herself, happened in the Indian capital, of Delhi, on Sunday, but only came to light on Monday, after local media reported the gross sin against humanity, the BBC-News reported. Authorities have since arrested her cousin for the offense, but one wonders of other unreported crimes against girls and women in India, which continues to debate the prevalence of sexual violence in a caste system that pits Indians to a particular class from birth to death.

The Delhi Commissioner for Women, Swati Maliwal, said the innocent victim had to undergo a three-hour operation and that her cries could be heard throughout the hospital. The Commission for Women chief described the baby's injuries as "horrific". 

Rapes occur too often in India, highlighted by the 2012 fatal gang rape of a female student on a bus. Girls have been snatched from bed and raped by depraved men. An 11-month old baby was once kidnapped by a neighbor while she slept next to her mother and then raped for two-hours. In 2015, according to the BBC-News, a three-month-old was kidnapped and assaulted in a southern Indian city.

Some 19,765 cases of child rape were registered in India in 2016, a stark increase over the already alarming 10,854 cases registered in 2015.

Clearly, there is a decadence of Indian society that contributes to these sickening crimes against babies, girls and women. The fractured system in India has witnessed 240 million girls marrying before age-18, while 53 percent of children participating in a government study, have reported some form of sexual abuse and that 50 percent of abusers are known to the child or are persons in trust and caregivers.

India's granting of full equality and of full respect to all women remains a starting point to mending that fractured society. We pray for the good welfare and rehabilitation of all innocent victims.
