Sad

Poor Old mother would never have imagined such a fate that would end her life. Here in Tamilnadu, India also such heinous crimes have become an routine affair. But here it happens to the old people in common since they seem to have become a burden or a liability to their children.

Every life has to be counted and every human being given the due repect of existence. The law has to be tightened and the Government has to take the initiative.

Lets wait rendering our voices and action where it is needed.

Love.

Shocking and sad

This is very sad.

Stories such as these,makes me wonder are we still humans and have emotions?

Instead of respect and care, the poor lady has been subjected to such inhuman act of crime.

I hope better sense prevails soon.

Much love,

Bizzare

Such stories makes one wonder if it is every human being that has a heart of flesh. Makes me want to believe that some people have exchanged theirs with steel.

It is cruelty at its highest. I hope justice takes its cause!

Thank you for sharing Fardosa.

Best Wishes,

How terrible

Dear Fardosa Muse,

This is such a sad and shocking story, I hope by highlighting it in news articles it will help for it to never happen again. Thank you for the contribution you are making to raising awareness on gender based violence.

Her story is so sad, it is

Her story is so sad, it is unimaginable. That someone could do this to the defenseless, the sick and elderly. Thank you for sharing, I too hope there will be justice for her.

That is horrible!

That is so awful that people are willing to not only do this to another human being but to their mother nonetheless. It is unfortunate and sad that things like this occur in such a beautiful world. Thank you for sharing.
