Woman Accuses Afghan of Rape, Retracts Allegation Later

Hours after she accused an Afghan national of raping her, a 22-year-old woman, hailing from Darjeeling, retracted her allegation when produced before a magistrate, in Malviya Nagar area of south Delhi today.

On the woman's allegation, police had even registered an FIR and arrested the Afghan on charges of rape.

The drama began at 3.15 AM when the woman and her friend made a PCR call that she was raped and thrown onto the street by the Afghan.

"A police team rushed to the address and brought the two women and the man to Malviya Nagar police station. All of them were heavily drunk and kept changing their statements at the drop of the hat. She even refused to undergo a medical test," said a senior police official.

The police, in the meantime, registered a case of rape and arrested the Afghan youth.

"However, by the time we presented the women before a magistrate to record their statements, they had come back to their senses. The woman told the magistrate that she had had a quarrel with the youth and made a call of rape after she fell from a staircase and injured herself," the official said.

No action was taken against the women either by the court or the police.

The Afghan, working as a waiter at a restaurant in Hauz Rani area of south Delhi, had come to the city almost a year back and was staying even after his visa expired, police said, adding, the women, both residents of Munirka, worked as beauticians and had known the Afghan since a few months back.

D.L.Narayan,

>> "Muslims are safer in India than in Muslim majority countries."

You want to talk of foreign countries when the question is why are Muslims unsafe in India! Shouldn't our first concern be what is happening in our country?

" By the same reasonings, blacks in US have no reason to complain?"

1. India is a democracy and every citizen has the right to complain and seek redressal of grievances. Religion is no bar unless there happens to be a Shah Banu who cannot avail of the legal recourses available to other Indians.

2. The demographic statistics have been cited to counter the specious hypothesis enunciated by Anwaar that Muslims are less safe than Hindus.

3. The reasons for internecine violence have been discussed threadbare. The fact that minorities are dwindling in Pakistan and Bangladesh is also an irrefutable fact. I was just pointing out to Anwaar that instead of making ridiculous comments about the plight of Muslims in India, let him ask himself more relevant questions.

>> Muslims who accounted for 10% of the population in 1951 have burgeoned to 15+% while Hindus have declined from 88% to 80% today.

By the same reasonings, blacks in US have no reason to complain?

>>HAVE YOU EVER ASKED YOURSELF WHY ALL NON-MUSLIMS ARE UNSAFE IN MUSLIM MAJORITY COUNTRIES?

Yet the Yazidis have found refuge with the Kurds and are joining them in the fight against Islamists. Kurdish schools teach their students the best of all religions. Imran Khan supports Jehadists teachings in Pak School texts. Afghan school children were indoctrinated in Jehadi ideology through text books originally produced by US. Bosnia is not in news and it is not a theocracy. 

In fact those Muslim majority countries where the non- muslims are unsafe, the Muslim deviants from the officially recognized "Islamic line" are also equally unsafe. And what about the role of Saudi Arabia in indoctrination around the world?

@ Anwaar - "The point simply was why are Muslims less safe than Hindus in India."

Why do you keep twisting yourself into knots all the time with asinine comments?

1. Muslims are safer in India than in Muslim majority countries.

2. Muslims who accounted for 10% of the population in 1951 have burgeoned to 15+% while Hindus have declined from 88% to 80% today.

3. An Afghan is accused of rape and you jump to the conclusion that nearly 200 million people are in mortal danger in India. Superb logic.

HAVE YOU EVER ASKED YOURSELF WHY ALL NON-MUSLIMS ARE UNSAFE IN MUSLIM MAJORITY COUNTRIES?

>>  The point simply was why are Muslims less safe than Hindus in India.

You see this article as a proof that Muslims are less safe than Hindus in India? An Afghan, illegally residing in India, or a drunken fight between two acquaintances didn't stand out to you? The only thing you got from an article that doesn't even mention the word muslim is that muslims are somehow unsafe in India?

Can you ever see anything from a non-muslim perspective? Why does everything has to be about muslims with you?
