“WHAT AN EXTREMENESS OF ATROCITY? IS THIS HUMANITY?"

When we think and talk about Nepal as a Nepalese, we are proud in many things in many ways. We are proud to be the people of highest peak in the world- Mount Everest. We are proud being a country of Buddha’s birth place. We are also proud to have second largest water resources in the world. Further, we are proud to live multi cultural diversity with full of natural beauty.

But currently, Nepal is also known as the most populated country in the world. Sadly, peace land of Buddha’s has turned into various forms of violence against women. There is much news about rural Nepali women but what about women’s position in Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. Isn’t there any violence against women? Today I found heart touching stories about women in Kathmandu. A woman was naked in front of public four days ago, but still today there is no news about her.

A woman was tortured by a group of people. They didn’t only tortured but also tore her clothes, make naked and round Ratnapark, a city in Kathmandu. The situation is more miserable than rural women’s situation. If you looked at the picture, I believed you will also feel so.

According to the article, “What an extremeness of atrocity? Is this humanity?” published in Mysansar.com website illustrates that the violation against women in Kathmandu. No one knows what her name, and where she is from, but she looks like 35 years old. At first they blamed her as character less women and hit in her arm, body, leg and head.
According to the author, women was crying and requesting for a help. “Help, Help, They are killing me” but her voice remains unheard. There was no one to help her. It was surprising that police station was only 50 meter far from the incident but police were unknown about this situation.

The police station was only 30 second far but police took half an hour to reach. Police didn’t arrest any one.
No one tries to help her although there were many people. You can see in the photos.
