BJP, Congress condemn Kathua rape

Kathua, Unnao rape case: DCW chief on indefinite hunger strike

Congress president Rahul Gandhi said he will hold a candlelight march on Thursday midnight, demanding justice for the eight-year-old girl, who was brutally raped and murdered in Kathua of Jammu and Kashmir.

The BJP government is drawing a lot of flak over rape of a minor in Kathua, Jammu and Kashmir, and Unnao rape case, which allegedly involves BJP MLA Kuldeep Senger.

"Like millions of Indians my heart hurts tonight".

Amid the growing atrocities against women, especially the Unnao rape case and Kathua rape case, the All India Mahila Congress (AIMC) has made a decision to observe a "Black Day" on April 17. Gandhi, accompanied by sister Priyanka Gandhi and brother-in-law Robert Vadra reached India Gate at midnight to protest against government's inaction in the Kathua gangrape case and the arrest of Unnao rape-accused BJP MLA.

As all BJP leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, his ministerial colleagues and party MPs and office-bearers, observed fast on Thursday to protest the washout of the second phase of Parliament's Budget Session, there was one party leader who could not as he "mistakenly" ate cashew nuts. "How can anyone protect the culprits of such evil?" he said on Twitter.

The situation in Jammu has been tense since the Kathua rape and murder.

The Kathua girl, who belonged to the nomadic Bakerwal Muslim community, had disappeared from a spot near her house on 10 January.

In Unnao, the attempted suicide by the rape victim on Sunday and her father's death in custody a day later highlighted the failure of the Yogi Adityanath government in acting against BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, who has been accused by the victim of allegedly raping her a year ago. Her body was found a week later. The candle march is also against the law and order situation in the country and continuously rising crime against women. The city's bar association has opposed the action against the accused and alleged that minority Dogras were being targeted.
