Bathinda, October 10
Several organisations protested in Bathinda against the Hathras gang-rape incident.
Bathinda Social group, Democratic Right Sabha, Punjabi Sahit Sabha, Kendria Punjabi Lekhak Sabha, Bheem Army Bathinda, Suchet Punjabi Bathinda, Istri Sabha Punjab, and Power Board employees were among the various organisations.
The members condemned the incident, and said, that once again the Hathras incident brings out the issue of women security in our country, but sadly, neither the police nor the officers, and our elected representative seem serious about as this since their focus is to face the rape accused, and defame the rape victim.
The evidence was buried as the victim's body was cremated at mid-night. The protestors also demanded justice for the victim's family.
In order to make sure our families were secure, the protestors urged people to remember this slogan: "Bachna hai toh ladna sekho, Ek duje naal khadna sekho”.
Further, they appealed to people to unite with each other, and said, that if they wanted to do something about ensuring women's safety, then they should join "Surakhshit Bathinda Mission”.
Gurpreet Artist, Amandeep Singh Sekho, Kulwinder Singh Happy, and others, were also present.
