Cardinal condemns Mumbai gang rape
Aug. 30, 2013
Cardinal Oswald Gracias has condemned the recent gang rape of a photojournalist in Mumbai.
“Rape is the worst thing a woman can undergo. Rape is physical and psychological terrorism, an abominable crime against the honor of women,” he said. The incident reflects the decline in the spiritual, social and cultural life of our country, he said.“It is urgent to bring God back at the center of our lives--in the family, in society, in the workplace--and lead us to the values of the Gospel,” he said.
The victim had gone to the deserted Shakti Mills compound with her friend to cover an assignment where she came across five men, who allegedly raped her. All the accused have been arrested and investigations are on in the case.
