'Delhi gangrape victim as guilty as rapists'

That is one Indian opinion: “Only 5-6 people are not the culprits. The victim daughter is as guilty as her rapists… She should have called the culprits brothers and begged before them to stop… This could have saved her dignity and life.Can you clap with one hand? I don”t think so.”

Since such a view is common in India, it may be that a Jan Lokpal Bill and more will be necessary - not to deny the right to have or indeed express such views - but to ensure vigorous penalties for those who use them to obstruct justice. These views seem to be similar or indeed much nicer than those often held by the Police. A lot needs doing, and it can be done.

Actually the gentleman who expressed the view above made a blistering attack on Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in February last year. He threatened to throw Modi's government out of Gujarat over a probe into the deaths of two children in his own ashram. He failed, and a CID (Crime) chargesheet was filed against (Asaram)  in connection with the mysterious death of two kids studying in Motera Gurukul.

IMO: India needs a Jan Lokpal Bill and much more. If that guy could be jailed it would even mean less opposition to Modi and even the feeble Congress.
