Mulayam Singh’s recent comments on rape have sparked anger and hopefully made us realize how very careful we have to be while voting this time.

Now I am convinced, why UP tops high criminal record. I just heard Mulayam Singh’s shocking speech after his right hand and left hand man Azam Khan spewed poison about the Kargil victory by Muslim Soldiers? And it was not by Hindu soldiers also? He shamelessly divided our Army on communal lines to get votes in the national election.

And now, the Supremo of Samajwadi party plays communal politics on rapists. Have you heard what Mulayam Singh Yadav thinks of RAPE? And Rapists? He says rape really is not a big deal. It happens. It is only a mistake by growing young men for which they do not deserve to be hanged. He referred to the Mumbai gang rape of a young photo journalist at the Shakti Mill compound and said, “Boys are Boys. Sometimes they make such mistakes.” And then he promised the audience that if they are elected, they will change such strong laws of death penalty for the rapist.

What was he trying to advocate? Was he using a cheap political appeal on communal lines for votes? Which criminals and rapists was he trying to appeal for votes? What kind of communal politics was he playing? Did he even think for a minute about the parents who lost their loving daughters like “Nirbhaya”? Can he ever imagine what if it happens to his own daughter? How will he react? Will he say the same thing? Does he know, how many lives of young women are destroyed physically and emotionally for lifetime if at all, they are lucky to survive the ordeal? Otherwise, an innocent life is lost even before it started living life in this beautiful world. And worse still, the family has lost a loved one. Whose fault is it? Why should the innocent get victimized, and why should the family loose their loved one?

There are no answers to all these emotional outbursts. If the next girl or woman does not want to become a victim again because of some insane sex crazy lunatic who wants to rape her for pleasure, there MUST be LAWS in place to nail the rapist and HANG him for what heinous crime he commits so that another girl will not become victim of another sex driven lunatic and no other lunatic will dare commit the crime. The punishments by courts are to prevent crimes from happening and not really to punish a criminal. And when the crime attracts death penalty, it becomes more effective in controlling crimes like rapes, dowry harassment and cold blooded killings.

The government of UP has a track record of working with criminals and goons. Their own ministers are criminals and hardcore goons. How can they ever think of a civilized society where there are effective laws and women can move around fearlessly?

Have we been electing such third class people who do not deserve to be lawmakers ? The time has come and it is this 2014 national elections when we decide who we want to govern INDIA? Not RULE India but govern this country. We all should feel collectively ashamed for voting for the most undeserving candidates in the last 30-40 years whose place is not in the assemblies or parliament but in Old Homes, Mental asylums or jail.

2014 National elections is the time to throw these politicians  out of political system for sure. Remember this, you do not want to be ruled by criminals but by civilians who are in politics to serve people and the country they love.
