extremely sad newsreport of a 11-year old girl set on fire in bangalore
I just stumbled upon a news report that saddened me. I know that that incident which the news report covered is not the first of its kind but it does not pain any less. The news report, which I provide below in full, was about a few young men setting on fire a 11-year old girl in Bangalore because they had a dispute with the girl's father.
This is a murder most terrible. I pray for the soul of the little girl to heal. My heart goes to the girl's family.
I really hope and pray for violent-minded individuals in our society to shed their violence. And if they don't then I really wish that the laws of the state and the state enforcement machinery provide stringent deterrents to violence and murder. In the case of this little girl, the onus is on the police of Bangalore to ensure a watertight case is built on the actual murderers and the planners of the murder.
