RIP Humanity: Renuka Shahane’s Compelling Post on Kathua Rape Is a Must-Read

As celebrities took to social media to display their outrage after the Unnao and Kathua rape cases, Renuka Shahane's Facebook post is a heartfelt look at humanity.

RIP Humanity: Renuka Shahane’s Compelling Post on Kathua Rape Is a Must-Read

In the aftermath of the brutal gang rape and murder of an 8-year-old child in Kashmir, several prominent public figures took to social media in outrage, to condemn the act.

Among them was actor Renuka Shahane, whose heartfelt Facebook post looked into how the act of rape signifies a loss of humanity.

What makes her post different from countless others?

She cuts to chase. She identifies that sexual violence is not justifiable by religion. Rape, and the meaning behind it are both unacceptable under any circumstance.

These are her words:

The religion of the victim or the religion of the rapist should never matter! It is of no consequence which political party the rapists are affiliated to. Rape is a crime against humanity. Period!

No religion and no political party is greater than the ideals of humanity. Anybody who rapes is inhuman. Anybody who plans a rape does not deserve to live. Anyone who rapes a child should not be allowed to live. Anybody who plans to rape a child and anyone who helps in planning the rape or helps in destroying evidence or helps in keeping quiet about it for money ceases to be human.

Let us not cease to be humans by supporting any vile rapists whatever their political or religious affiliations. Let us not make a tamasha of rapes!!! Appalled that some human beings can actually support rapists!!! Shocked beyond belief!

RIP humanity!!!
