Target: Rajnath Singh, Minister of Home Affairs
Goal: Demand justice for Indian woman who was allegedly raped and set on fire.
A 16-year-old girl died after her boyfriend allegedly raped her and set her on fire. The incident happened in New Delhi, where violence against women has become a common occurrence. Demand justice for this innocent girl and take a stand against domestic violence.
According to police, a man barged into his girlfriend’s bedroom and raped her. Then, he reportedly set her on fire. The girl suffered severe burns and died soon after. While motives are still being investigated, the suspect is in custody and has been charged with rape. If convicted, he faces possible execution.
This is just one of many incidents of violence against Indian women. Rape reports peaked in 2014 at a staggering 36,735 cases, though only 28 percent of those cases lead to convictions. Stricter laws against rape have been drafted since the dramatic rise, but more must be done to protect women. Sign below to demand the harshest penalty for this horrific crime.
Dear Minister Singh,
A 16-year-old girl was raped and set on fire, allegedly by her boyfriend. She suffered severe burns and died shortly after the incident. We demand justice for this innocent girl.
This is just one of many incidents of violence against Indian women in recent years. With rape reports topping off at 36,735 in 2014, more must be done to protect women. By sentencing this perpetrator to death, you would set an example and deter future offenders.
We demand the harshest punishment for the person convicted of this horrific crime.
