22 year old, arrested and beaten up by the police so bad, one of his eyes was knocked out of its socket. Was denied immediate medical aid. Is dead.
His crime? Protesting.
“Mr Gupta was among hundreds of students who were protesting against the government’s decision to postpone college union elections. They were forced by the police on to a bus that was meant to take them to jail. Mr Gupta’s friends say he was battered by the police till he was unrecognisable.”
Read the entire sad, horrifying tale here.
They’re all my age. The educated youth of India, determined to brighten the bleak future of this appallingly unapologetic nation.
And, what is their reward? Rape and Murder.
Forget about “anti-social” elements; the villain here is the State itself.
Fuck Police Brutality. Do we really have no value or regard for human life whatsoever?
But, then, going by Hindu philosophy, it’s all karma, right? If not in this lifetime, then in the next, you must be sure your sins will find you out. Like the Buddhists say. Anyhow, the point being, maybe we’ve all been these horrible people who are the horrible people now, and this is all just atonement.
But, that’s not fair.
Not that that’s relevant. What is relevant is that another one of us has been murdered, and the illiterate government couldn’t give less of a fuck.
I don’t understand it. We have an overpopulation problem. We have an unemployment problem. Both our police force, as well as the judiciary, is horribly understaffed.
Why doesn’t someone do something?
Yes, if you look, you can always find the ones who are trying.
But, why is their reward only brutality?
Why are we killing our young?
And, for a country that considers age so supremely important, why won’t middle aged frustrated dudes stop raping and murdering teenagers?! And toddlers too, now.
What the hell is wrong with this country?!
