    Mob Lynches Rape Suspect in India



    Indian police say thousands of people stormed a high security prison and dragged out a rape suspect before beating him to death in the remote state of Nagaland.

    Authorities say security personnel at the jail in Dimapur were overpowered as the mob broke into the facility late Thursday. A curfew has been imposed in the town.

    The suspected rapist, a 35-year-old man, was dragged out and hauled naked through the streets. Police were later able to retrieve his body. He died of injuries suffered in the beating.

    The man had been accused of raping a local woman last month.

    Sexual violence against women in India came under the international spotlight after the gang rape of a 23-year-old girl on a moving bus in 2012, an attack so brutal that she died of her injuries.

    Laws have since been tightened, but activists say society’s attitude toward women needs to change radically to combat sexual harassment and violence.

    This week, Indian authorities blocked the screening of a BBC documentary that featured a controversial interview with one of the the men convicted in the brutal attack.

    Saying that women who go out at night have only themselves to blame, Mukesh Singh - one of the six men who raped a 23-year-old physiotherapy student in December 2012 - told a BBC filmmaker that “a girl is far more responsible for rape than a man.”

    Singh is in New Delhi’s Tihar Jail as he appeals his death sentence for the gang rape of Jyoti Singh on a bus she boarded after watching a film at night.

    Justice via vigilantism has often been misapplied.

    Not to defend a rapist, as rape is a vile and violent crime deserving maximum punishment, but, everyone deserves a trial to prove guilt or innocence.

    What if he, the rape suspect, just happened to look like the rapist and was in the wrong place at the wrong time?

    It is possible that the actual rapist is free.

    22 Arrested After Lynching in India

    Police in India have arrested at least 22 people after a mob stormed a prison and lynched a rape suspect in northeastern Nagaland state.

    Tension remained high Sunday after thousands of people attacked the prison in Dimapur to drag out a rape suspect, beat him to death and tie his body to a clock tower on Thursday.

    Police said those arrested were charged with rioting. It was unclear if they were connected to the death of Syed Farid Khan, 35, who had been accused of raping a 19-year-old Naga tribal woman multiple times.

    Khan was a Bengali-speaking Muslim, and his family has accused police of falsely implicating him in the rape to try to root out Muslims from Nagaland.

    Nagaland's indigenous tribal groups have for years accused the growing population of Bengali-speaking Muslims from nearby Assam state and Bangladesh of illegally settling on their land and usurping resources.

    The lunching comes days after the Indian government banned a BBC documentary about the fatal gang-rape in December 2012 of a young student in New Delhi that caused shock within India and around the world.

    Until fairly recently, Naga were head-hunters, no-one messed with them.

    Muslims from Bangladesh have been invading the foothills of Assam and the Dooars of Bhutan and Gorkaland, and the locals just don't want them there.

    Again, it was a Muslim rapist taking easy kafir local meat, so he thought.

    Naga families usually have 3-5 kids, while Muslim families will tend to have between 5 < 8 children per family couple.
    If daddy has two wives, then there's another bunch of kids.

    Muslims tend to establish themselves as traders in a colonization process (the caliphate system), then outnumber the locals, dominate them and that's the end of another non-Muslim society.

    I'm all for the Naga, and this lynching is just one example of the hatred Naga have for Islam,...they only took on Xtianity in the last century, exchanging an old tribal culture for a new one, then they have their more recently acquire belief system knocked back in their faces by a growing horde of ever-demanding allawallas!

    It's the same all over Assam and the Dooars, Muslim's wanting something for nothing.

    Dimapur incident: On social media, first ‘rape’, then ‘Bangladeshi man’

    In this Thursday, March 5, 2015 photo, members of a mob pull a man, centre with blooded face, accused of rape, out of the Central Jail where he was held in Dimapur, in the northeastern Indian state of Nagaland. Several thousand people overpowered security at Dimapur Central Prison in Nagaland on Thursday, and seized the rape suspect, whom they also accused of being an illegal migrant from Bangladesh.

    They pelted him with stones and beat him to death, said police Constable Sunep Aier.

    While some demanded that the alleged rapist should not be granted bail, others said he should be handed over to them.

    Deputy Commissioner Wezope Kenye and SP Meren Jamir — both were later suspended — tried to pacify the crowd, but the protests continued till about 7 pm.

    At around 8 pm, some people vandalised some shops belonging to alleged illegal Bangladeshi immigrants. Following attempts to set a shop on fire, the police intervened and Section 144 of the CrPC was promulgated.

    “I was witness to NSF leaders telling the protesters that a rally would be held the next day at which the people could put forward their views,” said Mar Longkumer, a member of Survival Nagaland, a group that has been pressing the government to deport Bangladeshi immigrants.

    The next morning, the NSF “peace” rally saw a huge turnout. While some have blamed the NSF for mobilisation of the mob that raided Central Jail and lynched the accused, NSF president Tongpang Ozukum said: “After the rally was over, the chairperson of the rally announced that everyone should go to their homes as the curfew had been relaxed from 7 am to 11 am only, specifically for the peace rally… this ugly incident could have been avoided if they had listened to the NSF plea.”

    Ozukum said: “On March 4, after hearing that the protesters had gathered in the DC’s office and demanded that the culprit be handed over to them, the NSF officials went to Dimapur to pacify them and requested them to let the NSF take over the issue, but they refused.”

    So who led the mob to the Central Jail? As reported by The Indian Express earlier, suspended SP Meren Jamir said hundreds of girls in college and school uniform were in the front when the crowd had reached the jail. “How could we use force when there were hundreds of girls in front? It would led to so many casualties,” he had said.

    A local journalist said the police stood by as the crowd marched seven-eight kilometers to the Central Jail. “In the jail, however, the police did a lathicharge and then fired in the air, following which most of the students dispersed.

    By then, the men had taken over. I clearly remember many of them carrying a printout of Khan’s photograph or his photograph on their cellphones and asking the jail inmates about him after breaking in there,” said the journalist.

    India suspects charged over Nagaland mob lynching

    Police in north-eastern India say they have charged 42 people in connection with the lynching of a suspected rapist who was taken from prison by a mob.

    Syed Sharif Khan was stripped naked by the mob, beaten and dragged through the streets before being hanged in Dimapur, the main city in Nagaland state.

    Hundreds of policemen have been patrolling the streets of Dimapur since the incident amid increasing tension.

    A curfew was also imposed in the city on Sunday to maintain law and order.

    In earlier reports, Mr Khan was named as Farid Khan, but police have now identified him as Syed Sharif Khan.

    Police said Mr Khan was a Bengali-speaking Muslim trader from the neighbouring state of Assam.

    He was arrested in February on charges of raping a 19-year-old tribal woman three times.

    Mr Khan's brother said he was picked on because of ethnic reasons. According to reports, the woman was related to Mr Khan by marriage.

    After Mr Khan was taken from prison on Thursday, he was dragged through the streets by thousands of people. Police opened fire to try to stop the mob, wounding several people.

    On Monday, police said the arrested men had been charged with rioting, arson and unlawful assembly.

    "Some of these 42 arrested men were also directly involved in the lynching, and will face additional charges," news agency AFP quoted Inspector General of Police Wabang Jamir as saying.

    There are conflicting versions of how a large mob entered the prison and then removed - and killed - one selected inmate.

    A group of men entered the prison and took out the suspected rapist

    One version is that initially a small group of men went to the prison, and demanded to take out Mr Khan, and that some prison officials complied and led them to him.

    Only later, several thousand people collected outside the jail, demanding that the prisoner be handed over to them.

    The lynching happened in the midst of a controversy in India over the government's decision to ban India's Daughter, a documentary about the 2012 gang rape and murder of a student in Delhi.

    But correspondents say the killing is also linked to rising ethnic tensions in Nagaland, whose indigenous tribespeople have blamed migrants from Assam state and Bangladesh for settling on their land.

    Vigilante justice is not unheard of in India but it is rarely seen on this scale.

    It's fascinating to compare the UK with Thailand in this regard.

    I find the Thai police to be invariably corrupt, ill-tempered and under-educated.

    To the point where they are useless as far as helping the public they're charged to protect - and simply leech off the cornered, unsuspecting and subservient general public.

    In effect - irrelevant.

    Yet still Thailand is mostly crime-free.

    So no police force worth its salt - and no crime.

    In the UK, if you got rid of the police there would be mayhem.

    Why the difference?

    Tell you why.

    When the citizens of a community deal with the bad elements of the neighbourhood - no need for police.

    In Thailand - that's a given.

    In the UK - people are too scared to say boo to the proverbial goose. So to speak of course.

    India is (has to be) like this.

    They put a man in prison then failed to protect him from mob violence, those in the Government responsible also deserve to be prosecuted.

    The Indian government has very little popular authority as one moves further east and north as those areas weren't dominated in the past by either Vedic nor Moghul dynasties, only after the British Raj left the subcontinent in 1947 did more militant and pro pan-nationalist sentiment arise there, Bharata, almost a fascist philosophy.

    Eastern India has been fought over by disparate groups, all seeking some form of autonomy rather than capitulate to the pan-nationalistic philosophies of Delhi.

    Meghalaya has successfully transited out of Delhi's clutches, Misoram and Nagaland are keen to do the same, as they want no further encroachment by invading (usually) Muslim traders and farmers from West Bengal and Bangladesh, currently transiting Assam where they've reached saturation point and are now an angry hoard of mysogynists clamouring for land, having left yet another sewer of Islam called Bangladesh.

    Muslims breed like rabbits,(look at the statistics), have no respect for local customs and traditions and lock in to a community by the tried and proven tactic of saddling as many local women with kids, so making them dependent on the allawalla males for support.

    Islam's the sneakiest religion on earth, so don't expect the Naga to be at all gentle on the filth.
