End Rape of Women and Children at Indian Shelter

4996080610_a5409085b2

Target: Government of India

Goal: Make sure rape of women and children at shelter in Haryana is properly investigated and prosecuted.

After an investigation, it was revealed that women and children in a government shelter are being gang raped and forced into prostitution in India. The owner and three of her relatives were arrested but reports say she is being given special treatment by Haryana officials so she doesn’t name the officers involved. Sign this petition, asking the government of India, an outside party, to also investigate the shelter and make sure Haryana officials are charged.

After two girls escaped the shelter, they told the National Commission for Child Rights about what was going on at Apna Ghar. Women and children are gang raped, forced into prostitution and pregnant women undergo painful abortions against their will. The Punjab and Haryana High Court formed an investigative team after a report was filed and arrested Jaswanti Devi, who runs the shelter, and her daughter, son-in-law, and a relative. However, Devi is receiving special treatment so she won’t reveal the names of certain Haryana government and police officials who were involved in the mistreatment.

A proper investigation needs to be performed so the officials who mistreated women and children at Apna Ghar are prosecuted. Nobody should receive special treatment or avoid punishment. Women and children who seek help in a government shelter should not face rape, prostitution and unwanted abortions. Sign this petition asking for the government of India to step in and also investigate the shelter so the proper officials are prosecuted.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Government of India,

After two girls escaped from a shelter in Haryana, they reported that women and children there are being raped and forced into prostitution. An investigation was performed by the Punjab and Haryana High Court and Jaswanti Devi, who runs the shelter, and her daughter, son-in-law, and a relative were arrested. However, Devi is receiving special treatment so she won’t reveal the names of certain Haryana government and police officials who were involved in the mistreatment. You need to step in and make sure officials are prosecuted for the crimes at the shelter.

At Apna Ghar, women and children are gang raped, forced into prostitution and pregnant women undergo painful abortions against their will. Women and children who seek help in a government shelter should not face rape, prostitution and unwanted abortions. Also, nobody should receive special treatment or avoid punishment. I am writing to ask you to investigate the mistreatment at Apna Ghar and make sure all officials involved are prosecuted.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. India your so called culture exploits so many innocent people,women & creatures. May the new generations bring them to their senses.

  2. Instant arrest, castration and life in prison. Make them work for women. Make them work in a prison factory as free labor to make clothing, food, furniture for the poor for life. Make them give their lives in service of others. No rights.
