Rape and Murder on a Delhi Bus

I can't decide whether this story, covered well by BBC, borders on madness or outright evil incarnate. The furor it has caused in India and elsewhere is certainly fitting and the sub-continent needs to deal dramatically with those involved in order to make a statement that such incredible cruelty is not acceptable in Indian society. The 6 men involved include the bus driver and his assistant - the very people you would expect to come to your rescue. Here is the story.

"Police said she was raped for nearly an hour, and both she and her companion were beaten with iron bars, then thrown out of the moving bus into the street." 

The poor young woman died of her many severe injuries. Some of the things they did to her are too gruesome and disgusting to repeat here. Perhaps it is merciful that she died for how could she live with such horror haunting her the rest of her life? 

My prayer is that regardless of her religion, she is being comforted in the arms of He Who also suffered and died. God have mercy on this young woman and all women and children who are victims of madness and evil.
