Asifa Bano - The World Should Know

in life •  last year

Asifa.jpg

The story of Asifa Bano, an 8 year old girl raped and murdered in India, is all I have been able to think about for a few days now. I am not going to link a story or give details. You should read for yourself, but it is hard to read and understand what this little girl went through, the last few days of her life.

I decided to make a post to simply spread the word, make people aware of the story, and hopefully be as outraged as I am. The so-called Hindu's that did this, deserve no mercy shown, in this life or the next.

The anger and sadness I feel, is only overshadowed by the happiness of seeing my own little girl every day.
The stories about abuse of kids are common. Every day you hear about it in the US and other countries, so to say that it only happens in 3rd world countries is just not true. It happens because of religion, bigotry, hate, misogyny and the utter disrespect for other humans.

I hope that every single person involved in harming children, gets punished in the worst way, and I am finding it hard to wish anything but the worst things, for people responsible.

Haven’t spoken to anyone about this, and I let very few things get to me. This is one I cannot shake though.

What the fuck is wrong with the world and the, so-called, humans that inhabit at it?

I have placed a bounty on this post of 25 SBD. I am not looking for sympathy, nor do I want to promote any kind of hate. I want her story to be known, and I want people to show some humankindness.
If you have an idea to how we can help, promote love or any insight into why, some depraved men, can justify any crime because of religious belief, I would love to hear it.
Perhaps just upvote and re-steem. Most of all, be kind.

Here is my little girl, who I love and adore more than anything else. The last few days, she has probably been baffled by the amount of huge, and chocolate, that she has been given. I hate that she has to grow up in this world with this much hate filling it.

Seeing that pretty innocent child's picture in the thumbnail of this post made me think this will be some happy joy-filled post.

I mean look at the innocence in her eyes. Who on earth could be so monstrous to lay a finger on this child.
That is someone's daughter, someone's sister, someone's friend, a future mother...
The thought that someone could do such to a child makes me sick. The world seems to be getting madder and madder daily. Worse things happening than the previous day.

I don't want to imagine someone doing that to someone I know. But these people really do deserve the worst punishment that could ever be thought of.

I can't agree with you more!!

The so-called Hindu's that did this, deserve no mercy shown, in this life or the next.

So often people look at the eastern religions and enlightened and more advanced than western cultures and faith... but hindu radicals and the depraved minds of men still walk around in these religions and they prey on the weak and helpless. No 8 year old should ever suffer like this.

Thank you for informing us about Asifa Bano, if only her name. Her family is in my prayers and her name is remembered. May her name be written in the Lamb's book of life.

when I read about this in the newspaper it made me think of how this world has some truly depraved folks in it. I am thankful though that there exist fathers out there like you who love the responsibility of their child and has compassion enough to even be worried about a child who lives a world away.

one thing I do know is that with people like you raising the next generation we will be blessed with a compassionate and peaceful future where these things are unheard of.

This is an incredible sad story @jmdk2000 I searched for her story online and every word i read i was getting more sad until tears start running down my face. There are really disgusting and bad people in earth and i know that Asifa is now on a better place.
Only love and awareness of this cases, can help tackle this problems.
Let no other girl suffer as Asifa!!

Wow....this story is really terrible. I can't unterstand how humans can do such a thing..... We all have to protect our children. Even it is not our own child. They are so defenseless. How can they abuse this? i can't understand....

Yes it's so true. You can read it in the Internet. Child abuse happens all over the world not only in the 3rd World. :(
And often the Parents or Family is involved.
In the poor countries, the parents sold their children because it's sometimes the only way how the Famely get money for food. And of course a lot perverse rich people from USA Westeurope, China, Japan, Arabian. I read on the Border to Syria a lot of Refugees sell their children for just a few bucks.
If I get a little daughter and someone want to rape her. You can be sure he will die a blody and brutal death.

It’s so sad to hear stories like this, and they happen all to often. One thing we might be able to do to help is through the Steem platform! If a motivated individual or group created a page and posted valued content, maybe a foundation to aid children who are the victims of sexual violence could be set up. All the SBD or Steem awarded to the page could go directly to victims to help care for them or pay for medical bills. Anything to help them. I hope this idea helps or motivates you. Take care and hold onto that little girl tightly!

Your thoughts are admirable. I haven't heard about this story yet but I'll be sure to check it out after my response. I can completely relate with you on your thoughts about the world... I am in Australia and we see and hear the same heartbreaking stories here too, I'm sure that you are right, it happens everywhere. In the last decade I have noticed a huge decline of decency in general society. I am certainly not saying everyone is like that but I feel a vast majority is starting to rule. I am often left wondering what the world will be like when our kids are old... what will they have to live thought, what will they have to witness and will they have any sense of freedom in their lives. It's a scary thought.

As far as the monsters who bring harm to innocent children... I don't think any decent human being can start to imagine why, how or what brings these people to do these crawl acts, especially to children but to anyone really. I would like to think there is a mental instability that has lead them to their path as I can not find another answer as to why. We live in a messed up world and these people are part of it.

I do believe in karma and while that doesn't help these children or ease the minds of the parents, I do believe a day will come where they will get what they deserve, one way or another. While these stories are heartbreaking what we can take away from it is to cherish life, our loved ones, our children and don't take anything for granted. To hold onto our children for a long as well can. Teach them to be safe and have an open and honest relationship with them. It would be nice to think we don't need to do any of these things, that they're children, care free little human beings but we have to do all we can to protect them and look after them. A reminder of this to everyone is always a good idea, it's easy to become too trusting, so good on you!!

You're daughter is gorgeous... somehow I don't think she's going to have any complaints about the extra attention and affection, that's what they thrive for right! Keep the cuddles coming! : )

I'm off now to find that story...

Thank you for your reply. And yes - my little one is one amazing little girl (O:

Thank you!! : )

Nice post brother @jmdk2000 choose a nice topic to discuss, actually being a father, honestly speaking no one can bear this pain, and no one can feels unless we can't bear.
We should just feel the pain of victim's families...
I really can't understand why rape activities increases nowadays with childrens.
We should must initiate to spread awareness campaign against these types of culprits to safe our childrens from them.
And no more sorrow and feels guilt, we do our to stop these shameful activities.

A nice content about asifa bano... After reading your post i am very amazed... Where is humanity going??? The marks humans leave are too often scars. We're all human, aren't we? Every human life is worth the same, and worth saving...Thanks @jmdk2000 for such kind of humanity related content..

Being from Kashmir myself, i cannot begin to describe how much this has affected me.
I am angry, outraged but most of all I feel ashamed.
And all of this happened inside a temple, can you believe that which is a sacred place for Hindus. I literally cried while hearing about this.
Her father said 'we didn't look inside the temple cause we thought it's a sacred place' .
And what was most shocking was there were policemen, politicians involved. There were protest rallies to save the monsters.
And when we Kashmiris protested for justice, we were met with bullets.
This is the state of our world where you can't even demand justice.

·

Thank you for your comment, and I feel for you. Must be difficult being from that region and having to deal with this.

I also saw that there were protests for these criminals - people actually thought they should be set free, as it wasn't even a crime in their eyes.
We are all humans, but some seem to forget that all life is sacred and no one is better or worth any more than someone else.

·
·

It is painful.
I wish I had words to describe but sadly I don't.
Pro rape rallies in Jammu recieved police protection and anti-rape rallies by Kashmiri school girls were greeted with smoke shells and baton charge.
And they call it the biggest democracy in the world.
What a load of shit.
I've never felt so powerless in my whole life

·

Gosh... I have no words!
We live in a world where there is SO much corruption, it's frightening.

·
·

And some of us experience it more closely than others.
But the support this case has been getting is really admirable.
Otherwise this would've been one of many forgotten horror stories in Kashmir.
Thank you

I think that's what you need... when the public make noise, that is when someone is going to listen.

Holy shit. I did not expect this. I was skimming the bounty post and picked up on yours and clicked this. This is just awful. these pieces of shit should be taken out and killed very slowly and painfully. I have 2 daughters of my own and i would not rest until these monsters were dead. FUUUUCK this pisses me off.

·

Yea it is truly painful to even think about.

Steemit is full of investing ideas, photos of cats and dogs, but not much about real news. This was worth sharing and getting the word out on.

I've also covered her story and trust me it's so fucking hard to not angry over these kinds of things when you are a father.

The most shocking thing is that the murder and rape of this child is only being brought to light right now when the crime was done In January, because the politicians along with culprits are trying to hide this heinous act.

Another thing I find shocking is that because of communal rivalry people are justifying that what happen to Assifa was right because she belonged to religion they hate or have extreme prejudice for. I mean forget religion, where is the humanity in this fucking insanity. How could you justify the murder and rape of a child barely 10, the ones that did this as you said deserve the worst fucking punishment possible and I don't wanna even imagine what this because I just hope that it's beyond any thing I've imagined for them.

·

Absolutely agree.
The one guy that asked another man to hold up killing her, so he could rape her one last time, I simply cant fathom the pure evil, and I cant quite remember that my heart has been this broken.
I want to get the word out, and I want fucking change in India. Their caste system is deplorable, but it doesn't only happen there.
Either way, I would send all my BTC to some corrupt official in India that could give me 30 minutes with each of these. The amount of anger I feel, is unlike anything before. Unhealthy for sure.

I don't believe in any god, and the more I look around and see these acts being committed by believers of, whatever, religion, the more I despise people making claims, in the name of any religion.

I cant talk to my wife about this, and I cant really ask any friends to read the story, as it is out of the worst horror movie, so I decided to just post here. Hoping others will be made aware of it and maybe do a little to try and promote some kind of change in India.

·
·

I understand sometimes you want to hide the ugliness of the world from you're family.
Anger is justified just don't let it bother you for too long as it may affect you're family. I really, sincerely hope Asifa's killers get punished according to the barbarity they have displayed. it's absolutely sickening how religious zealots have any way of justifying this sickening crime.

·

This is so heartbreaking.
Hope the world stands together with us against these monsters.
Even a death penalty seems like a small punishment.
I just want they hand over those fucking monsters to us, let us deal with them and show the whole world how to deal with such criminals.

·
·

I think it is for instances just like this that the death penalty should be brought back. Instead what, where to they end up? They should NEVER be allow out either... even life isn't life, it's wrong! These are not the sort of people you want getting out!

I totally agree

I believe anyone who is a parent with the love for our children will never want this sort of thing to happen. This is really inhuman to do such act to kids. It is therefore important to pray for our children as well as spread the right message to raise awareness! Thanks for the effort in trying to stop such act by writing this post. Children are to be protected and loved!

Do religions and many cultural aspects definitely distance us from our true essence of beings of light?

As Jean Rostand wrote

Kill one man, and you are a murderer. Kill millions of men, and you are a conqueror. Kill them all, and you are a god.

I know it's difficult, but forgiveness is the only way... think about it!

I didn't know about this story but i knew about others that happen in India and upon reading this and searching online for the stoy, this is completely sad and there are really depraved people on earth.
How come someone do this to another human being, and specially a 8 year old children? How can there be so much evil on the heart of so human beings? :(
I do hope they get a very hard and exemplar punishment, this is completely unacceptable and they have to made an example so nobody ever dares to do that do another human being.
I will be raising awareness by resteeming this post in my feed and tonight i will pray for the soul of this little girl.

Thanks for the post.

The world is lacking the most powerful tool to conquer hate. Crime and all forms of wickedness and it is LOVE. It has been revealed on the old rugged cross of Jesus Christ where he died forthesins of the world. The solution to the problems of the world is Jesus Christ.

A bounty of 25.000 SBD has been set on this post by @jmdk2000! You can read how they work here.

This is so sad that these hindus keep saying and DEVI MAA showing respect to women but nothing like that happens, it is all fake..fake people around there,even the news channels are not showing in the proper way what is happening,as if they are dampning the whole matter...
God is there to justify even if they people cant bring justice to ASIFA ....

I am not offending but sometimes biting the tongue is not the only key..

This is the limit of human perversion, unfortunately this is not the first time this has happened nor will it be the last, nor is India the only place where it happens, or certain Indians the only ones who turn a blind eye on this. Here in my country we do have things like this happen, fortunately rapists are scorned by everyone here, I sense there is no sympathy for these criminals in this country, and when they are caught and sent to prison, the other prisoners who are murderers, drug dealers, and other bandits see these assholes as the worst possible human beings and take it upon themselves to make prison for these rapists as much of a living hell as they can.

Abuses have no nationality. And the big problem is not only the abuse itself, but also the lack of support for these children, silent victims, immersed in guilt and shame, without meaning.

teach children martial arts [to defend - your opponent size can be used against them-} and PEACE LOVE for all and remember- humanity had to cooperate in order to survive - this is probably the only way for us to evolve to the next LEVEL.

Your daughter is so beautiful, a happy lovely gentle soul. I can understand how you feel about her and her safety in this crazy world.
Justice may not come in this life, but it will be held accountable for in God's time and in the eternities.

That's really sad story! :( feeling pained.

This is very sad news. Shame on fucker man who rape Asifa Bano. Rape is a serious offense. The punishment of rape should be executed publicly. May god Asifa Bano will get jannah.

As a mother, this news really terrifies and upset me.

Once I felt hatred towards those responsible, then life taught me, and I understood it, that everything has its because.

The universe, on the other hand, is the natural dynamic balance between opposites, isn't it?
