Is this the same argument, the "cultural " argument, you used in the burning of a child by Indian parents in Norway?

BTW, there are report that Mr Vallabhaneni, the father had "threatened" to send the child to India for wetting his pants in the school bus.
Which is kind of revealing because it suggests he sees India as way to punish the child.

You are evading the question. But that is OK. You took enough beating in that thread.

As I said, you took enough beating already.
Here are few of your posts in that thread.
Clearly, you seem to be attemting to justify/excuse the incident as cultural difference overreaction on the part of non-Indians
. Even some Indian posters distanced themselves from your comments

THis is why, in the USA, rape is increasingly referred to as an act of physical and psychological violence.; not just sexual violation.
Rape is always brutal and violent. And yes more and more people are realizing that rape is a crime of mental and physical power not ever about sex.

That poor woman. Gang raped by a group of monsters for an hour. And then thrown from the moving bus.

Poor woman.

I hope they go to jail for life, for they took her life and they should never be allowed around civilized society again.

but i do hope this changes a certain attitude in indian society.
Wrong again bob.

Strong penalties for crimes against women DO IN FACT help women and society as whole. Most criminals who brutalize women in this way reoffend. And nothing but jail or death stops them.

What the fuck is wrong with you people.

This is not a contest! Wrong is wrong. Violence against women on this scale is a global problem. And people going on about where it's worse really don't help.

Trying to sweep it under the rug to make it look like one country is less bad than another. Whenever shit like this happens there should be outrage. There should be some sort of pressure to make sure that there is stiff punishment and steps taken to prevent it from happening again.

that's what i am stressing upon as well......people need to stop sounding as if india is the only nation where rapes are happening......

exactly what indian people are doing at the moment......all i am saying is that there is no need to colour the whole episode as if only india is suffering and the rest of the world is alright......

It seems it's this cultural fit that all those women are protesting against. You seem to fit the old school view that a decent women doesn't leave the house at night. So when a woman does go out, she's considered loose and men are given free range to call her a whore. It's the same argument as saying that women wearing revealing clothes are asking to be raped.

From the articles Ashi posted and articles and viewpoints I read elsewhere, I see women who're protesting to claim their place in society, in the city, women who're determined to no longer be afraid, who're sick of fear taking over their lives, who're sick of fear preventing them from going where they want to go. The mentality that apparently good girls don't go out, good girls are never alone, that's a mentality that must change. It's not because a woman decides to take dance lessons, that's she's a whore. It's not because a woman decides to go to a movie theatre in the evening, that she's a whore.

Your post sounded so much like the comment in the newspaper, laying the blame with the woman instead of the perpetrators. It's that archaic view that has to change. It's that view that exists in some cultures but not in others. It's that view that means India has a longer way to go than some other countries, because there are cultural differences.

Everything you do continues long after you've gone

I don't need invitation, this is not an Indian forum.
Look, the reactions to your post by other posters says it all.
And this is not the first time you have been in this position

BTW, you can't possibly question other Indian disagreements with you by assigning them ulterior motives

no, not even 0.1% women are protesting this......delhi =/= india......i don't even think they are protesting the cultural aspects......they are just calling for superior security......so next......

i am not blaming anybody but the morons who committed the crime......i am just calling for preventive measures from all sides......and please for the last time, we are in no position to decide whether india needs to move forwards or backwards......
