Chevella: Chilkur Balaji temple priest CS Rangarajan said those who treat women as an object of entertainment must be branded 'Repasura' and should be hanged. He was in Disha's house on Wednesday to console her parents.
Speaking to media persons here, he said that the girl was "mauled and killed in the hands of four demons. We need a society where every citizen takes up the role of Jatayu in the Ramayana, who put up a valiant fight against Ravana to save Sita maata.
We have several legislations for the safety of women, but they alone cannot come to the rescue of women from perverts. We need to counsel our youth to be saviours and not demons."
The Balaji temple had suspended darshanam and pradakshinam on Saturday last week marking the society's resentment against rapes. He said he had no words to console the family. The society is grieving along with them. The accused should be castrated, and the society is very angry at the blind judiciary. Executions must take place within six months of sentencing, the priest opined.
The Chilkur Balaji temple has been organising programmes like Kanya Vandanam in which young girls' feet were smeared with turmeric in reverence and Raksha Bandhan to create a sense of sisterly feeling among the boys, he said.
