Rahul to hold candlelight march at India Gate over Unnao Kathua rape

Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to break his silence over the rape and killing of an eight-year-old girl in Kathua district of the state. Actually neither case is recent, and that it has taken so long for them to get national attention only underlines how hard the fight for justice still remains for rape victims even five years after passage of the Nirbhaya legislation - particularly when the accused enjoy political power or patronage.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Wadra participated in a candlelight procession last night at India gate to focus attention on rapes and gender violence in the country.

In Kathua in Jammu and Kashmir, an eight-year-old girl from a minority nomadic community disappeared near her house on January 10. "India is waiting. #SpeakUp", Rahul tweeted. Rahul Gandhi in his tweet wrote, "Mr. Zakir Hussain was the main culprit with two [other] culprits", Lekhi said as she accused the media of not playing up the BJP's comments on the Kathua and Unnao rape cases. "In a short span of time, thousands of people assembled for the march", Maken said. "We had said this before as well, that women and children are in danger in your government", Azad was quoted as saying.

"The Congress valued Ambedkar's talent and made him the chairman of the committee that drafted the Constitution", Selja said.

"BJP leaders have mastered the art of "Extending State Protection to Rapists", "Shaming the victim and her family", "Defending the accused and crying conspiracy", "Blatant Cover ups", "Absolute Whataboutery" & "Superficial Damage Control"- And the Adityanath Government has perfected this art to the hilt", Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala said.

As outrage continued to mount over the Kathua and Unnao rape cases, the Bharatiya Janata Party on Friday came out in defence of its ministers and MLAs in the two states.

Many were shouting slogans like "Modi Bhagao, Beti Bachao" as they held candles as a mark of protest.
