Now, terrorise the children

The man allegedly behind the infamous Naroda-Patiya massacre of the Gujarat riots is allegedly also the mastermind behind the abduction and abuse of young Gujarati women -- with the consent of their parents. They married outside their communities, you see, and the family honour had to be safeguarded. Read the piece, it's quite a horror story.

All those words just send off alarm bells ringing in my head: community, honour, safeguarded. Tinkle tinkle. Actually, maybe a harsher sound than that.
