Additional Sessions Judge,( New Delhi), Kamini Lau, has recommended Castration , by surgical or chemical methods, as a punishment for convicted rapists, especially sex maniacs like paedophiles. She regretted that Judges cannot as yet grant such sentences because our Laws have not yet made such provisions. But she has repeatedly noted in her sentences that we need to protect our children from evil minded people and nothing will send a stronger message to would -be rapists than a punishment like Castration. " The message has to be loud and clear : Do not mess with a child " she said, equating paedophiles to "live sex bombs" posing grave danger to innocent lives. Whenever I read any news of atrocity on children I always feel murderous rage and I have always felt such criminals should be castrated . Many others have said I am over reacting with unnecessarily violent thoughts. Now after reading what the Judge said, I am releived that some others , in responsible positions ,too feel the need to have such deterrants to curb the growing menace of paedophiles. Hope our Law makers take serious note of this recommendation. Please share your views on this. Thank you.
