The Indian society has lost its morals which is proven from recent videos on social media about a girl bleeding from her wounds apparently after being raped and begging for help but instead of being provided assistance, a group of people continued recording her plight on their mobile phones.

The videos recorded in Kanauj district in the In-dian state of Uttar Pradesh speak volume of the sick mind of Indian society as the girl, 13, in the video with blood soaked arms begged for help, but the group of men around her continued filming her ordeal instead of taking her to a hospital.

The girl was found near a government guest house and in the CCTV footages she could be seen walking with a man. Ashok Swain, an academic and professor of peace and conflict research at the Department of Peace and Conflict Research, Uppsala University, Sweden, in a tweet bemoaned the apathy of the In-dian society. “When a society loses its moral com-pass! A 12-year old girl, sexually assaulted, bleeding, and begging for help but the crowd of men is busy filming her in UP, India,” he said in his tweet. The police said that they have registered a rape case on the complaint lodged by the girl’s family.—KMS
