    As a Bangladeshi i feel shamed. I don't know what should i say against this crime means rape.
    But this case is very alarming for Bangladeshis girls at that moment. So i have a request to those popular journal , especially Al jazzera please do something for our young generation and make them easier to protest loudly against this rape as well as government.

    Rise your hand to support the women and death sentence law need to pass against rape.. Shame on the person who allures his sexual desire to the innocent girl is highly recomended to disable his ejection process through injection or stone ..

    The real culprits here are the miscreants of the ruling party of Bangladesh. They are backed by a corrupt government and terrorize the common people and brutally rape them. World leaders need to look at Bangladesh's dictatorial government and its horrors.

    It's such a horrendous situation.. people can just walk away even if they commit rape and murder, simply beacuse they are connected with Awami league ( the ruling party for nearly 2 decades).

    Awami league (the ruling party) needs to step down, they already crippled the nation.

    'Death penalty' for rape is not a serious punishment. It's a major disproportion. Especially given that women take these terms (sexual assault, rape) very lightly and can falsely accuse people or blackmail. Wanting 'death' for rape is based on pure feelings and emotions. Not on logical thoughts.

    Just another example of why Al Jazeera is such a good news channel for airing terrible injustices such as this.
