It has singularly been one of emphasizing the degradation of Indian society! Of course, we know that in Western media every kind of reporting about the rest of the world revolves around showing just how superior they are to the rest, and to convincing their public and the rest of the world of this.
Basically the Islamo-Christianist Cabal in India destroys the underpinnings of society, law and order, in India while the Dharmics pick the tab when it comes to image!
Very true. Look at the coverage (lack of) on the Ohio kidnapping/ Rape case that is being covered up by the whole town and society. The moment you criticize India in front of a westerner no matter how well meaning you/him, her are, it turns into a India bashing (read Hindu culture) exercise. The western mind is brainwashed about India with things like Caste system, poverty and lack of toilets.
In this case I have seen people arguing in the following ways:
Before Jan 6th when the name was revealed
Rapes on untouchables by upper caste are common in India
After Jan 6th
Indians are protesting loud because the victim is an upper caste girl, they would not have done it if the victim was a dalit.
When ever some one from the west condescendingly talks on the Delhi Rape, need to challenge them with the number of rapes in the west including the number of rapes by US army men on US army women.
