Indian-Americans protest against Kathua, Unnao rapes

PM Modi Faces Protests in UK Over Kathua & Unnao Rapes Angry Indian Diaspora Demands Justice

Yesterday, Lagarde called the rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua "revolting" and hoped that the authorities, starting with Prime Minister Modi, pay more attention to it.

While she praised the nation's economic performance, "what has happened is just revolting", Lagarde said when asked about the incidents in the past week involving a seven- and an eight-year-old girl.

"Modi's silence is as perplexing as it is distressing", the Times said, adding he seemed to have failed to learn the lesson of the Congress that did not forcefully respond to protests in late 2012 and early 2013 after a young woman was raped and killed on a public bus in New Delhi. "And it's not just a question of talking about them", said the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund said.

She even appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to pay more attention towards the security of women in India. "We have research to show that India's GDP can grow by 27 per cent if the women are brought to the same level of men in terms of economic and workforce participation", she said in January.

The IMF chief quickly added, however, she felt "the US should try to [move] its deficit and [national] debt downward rather than upward".

Her comments unusual for the position she holds, comes in the backdrop of a national and global horror over the rape cases in Jammu & Kashmir's Kathua and Uttar Pradesh's Unnao. However, her January comments did appear to be the IMF's position.

The members of the Indian American community turned up for the protest in large numbers in total dismay after knowing the heart-wrenching details of gang rape and murder of Asifa in Jammu and Kashmir, killing of Unnao rape victim's father, and the rape and killing of a juvenile in Surat.

In the whole country PM Modi was also criticized by activists and the opposition for his silence and disinclination to reign in BJP leaders who were seen to support the accused. The case is now being hear in court.

They were also protesting the rape of a teenage girl in Uttar Pradesh's Unnao. The case is being investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation.
