39 Indian men killed by ISIS bodies’ repatriated shortly

The 39 Indians killed in Iraq will be repatriated next week to India, declared the Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj to the grieved families. The families argue that the government had guaranteed them a job in the public sector as well as close assistance.

Families of the deceased are asking for financial help and compensation as their bread earners are no more. As a consequence, Swaraj declared that she would meet the Cabinet Members of all the four states where the 39 lived, in order to seek the possibility of finding jobs in the public sector to their next kin.  The victims’ families had met Punjab Congress chief and party MP Sunil Kumar Jakhar in New Delhi who assured that their cases will be taken into consideration.

The revelation of the 39 deaths was made last week in parliament by the External Affair Minister after four years of hope. Out of the 40 Indians in Iraq, only Harjit Masih succeeded to escape.

New Delhi: Amid India is mounting pressure to advocate rape cases and Cabinet Members had taken initiative to strengthen the POSCO Act, responses of Union Minister Santosh Gangwar had not been welcomed. The latter stated that rape cases are unfortunate but should be treated as a big issue. He underlined that in a huge country as India, one or two rape cases should not been given such importance. He further added that rape could not be stopped and is a vain issue.

India had faced over the past weeks waves of protests, from organisations calling for pressing measures against child rapist and abductors. The list of child rape cases seems endless as new reported cases continue to add to the outrage over the Kathua gang rape case. The cabinet met Saturday to take measures to implement death penalty for those who raped children below 12 years old.

While some people maintain that death penalty does not always act as a deterrent to rape, others welcome this initiative as a move from the government to address the rape issue in India.
