Gandhipet sources stated that special puja was offered to the gods to curb child rape cases across india in Chilkur Balaji temple in hyderabad on Sunday and the priests performed ‘Parikrama’ with three cows in the famous temple. Priest Ranga Rajan told a news agency “Cow worship has been an old method to combat with any sort of crisis, so we planned to offer prayers in order to curb child rapes cases, being reported in our society. Three cows will take three Parikrama rounds around Balaji temple sanctum. The three Parikrama represent words, deeds and thoughts respectively”.
Moreover he quoted child rape was an alien term in india, but now that we have adapted the western education system and culture, we are witnessing more and more rape cases in india. Newspapers, TV channels and social media are full of these cases nowadays. He added “Children are not safe in our country anymore, we have never heard about any such incident in our old literature. Though we have always heard about women being harassed, now the time has changed, along with women, children lives are also at stake”.
