Death verdict not enough.. : Nandita Das

Death of Delhi gang-raped victim has triggered nationwide and the citizens of the country are demanding strict action against the culprits. Actress and Director Nandita Das said, "Despite all that has been happening, there are reports of such crimes (rapes) still happening". Nandita Das suggested instead of giving them death sentences or any other severe punishments the culprits must be brought to speedy trial, social humiliation and other such things. She said, "In other countries such reports have been filed which state that death sentence has not lowered the graph of such crimes. In fact, the countries where such crimes happen less, they don't even have any such thing as death sentence." She was also shocked at the statements made by the people where women are held responsible for rape. Infuriated at these kind of comments, she said, "This accusation that some people have been flinging these days that these crimes and rapes happen because girls wear skirts and other such clothes is utter nonsense. If this was true, then no village woman would be raped." In 1992 Nandita made a film named 'Bawandar' on Bhanwari Devi, a low-caste woman from a village in Rajasthan who was allegedly gang-raped. Even her face used to be covered, this (rape) should not have happened with her then. "We hear of a three-year-old girl being raped. Was she found in some nightclub? We should not shame ourselves by giving such excuses," she added.
