Delhi Gang Shame Case – January 6, 2013 – News n Analysis by Dr. Raj Baldev, Cosmo Theorist, on the national minded father of the victim, who has no objection if his daughter’s name is disclosed in public interest. Why the police wants to keep it secret?
The father of the Delhi Gang Rape Victim who carries two assumed names as Damani and Nirbyaya, is reported to have said to media that he wants the name of her daughter to be made public in national interest, this is his personal view.
He has said in an interview published on Sunday as per Reuters that the father of Indian woman whose brutal rape and torture provoked international outrage said that he wanted her name to be made public so that the people could get inspiration from her.
The 23-year-old physiotherapy student who died on December 28 in a Singapore hospital, two weeks after a gang rape on a bus in New Delhi that created strong street protests throughout the country prompted promises from the government for tougher punishments for offenders.
“We want the world to know her real name,” the woman’s father told Britain’s Sunday People newspaper.
“My daughter didn’t do anything wrong, she died while protecting herself,” he added.
“I am proud of her. Revealing her name will give courage to other women who have survived these attacks. They will find strength from my daughter.”
However, his father said that the family members are opposed to the publication of her photo.
To my analytic view, it is really surprising when the name of the girl is allowed to be disclosed what’s the harm about publication of her photograph?
It is only the photograph of a person that inspires not only the name? Hence her father should also give necessary permission to disclose her name to the media along with her photograph.
How the other girls can get inspiration from her when her photo is not published. If her photo is not published, the inspiration shall remain incomplete.
