क्या किसी लड़की के साथ इससे भी ज्यादा बुरा हो सकता है!

मीडिया से सीधे तौर पर जुड़ने के बाद रेप, मर्डर, चोरी, धोखाधड़ी की खबरें बहुत ज्यादा चौंकाती नहीं हैं। कन्ट्रोल रूम में बैठकर हर रोज ऐसी ही बातें सुनने, लिखने और बांचने लगी हूं। कभी 70 साल की वृद्धा के साथ बलात्कार.. फिर लूट तो कभी 2 साल की मासूम के साथ रेप के बाद कत्ल। कभी कुछ तो कभी कुछ… पहले अफेयर वर्ड सुनकर भी कान खड़े हो जाते थे पर अब तेजाब फेंकने की घटना भी कॉमन लगने लगी है…

इसका मतलब ये नहीं कि भावनाशून्य हो गई हूं… बस ये कि कानों को अब ये सबकुछ नया नहीं लगता। लेकिन कल जो कुछ पढ़ा… उससे दिल दहल गया। सदमा भी कहूं तो सच ही होगा क्योंकि पूरे दिन उसी के बारे में सोचती रही… कुछ फंसा सा हो जैसे….। इससे पहले ऐसा प्रेमचन्द की कहानियां पढ़कर ही होता था कि शब्द चित्र बनकर तैरने लगते थे लेकिन इस लड़की की कहानी पढ़कर भी वैसा ही हुआ।

16-17 साल की एक लड़की की कहानी है… सिर्फ कहानी नहीं दर्द और हैवानियत बयान करने वाली कहानी है। एक लड़की..44 दिन… और सोच से परे की यातना….। हिन्दू धर्म में स्वर्ग और नरक की मान्यता है कि स्वर्ग सुख का तो नरक दुख और तकलीफों का घर माना जाता है.. जहां प्रताणित किया जाता है… शायद ये सब कुछ काल्पनिक हो लेकिन नरक की कल्पना इस कहानी से सच लगने लगती है….

Junko Furuta. The girl who went through 44 days of torture.

DAY 1: November 22, 1988: Kidnapped Kept captive in house, and posed as one of boy’s girlfriend. Raped (over 400 times in total). Forced to call her parents and tell them she had run away Starved and malnutritioned. Fed cockroaches to eat and urine to drink. Forced to masturbate. Forced to strip in front of others. Burned with cigarette lighters. Foreign objects inserted into her vagina/anus.

DAY 11: December 1, 1988: Severely beat up countless times. Face held against concrete ground and jumped on. Hands tied to ceiling and body used as a punching bag. Nose filled with so much blood that she can only breath through her mouth. Dumbbells dropped onto her stomach. Vomited when tried to drink water (her stomach couldn’t accept it). Tried to escape and punished by cigarette burning on arms. Flammable liquid poured on her feet and legs, then lit on fire. Bottle inserted into her anus, causing injury.

January 1, 1989: Junko greets the New Years Day alone. Body mutilated. Unable to move from the ground.

DAY 44: January 4, 1989: The four boys beat her mutilated body with an iron barbell, using a loss at the game of Mah-jongg as a pretext. She is profusely bleeding from her mouth and nose. They put a candle’s flame to her face and eyes.

Then, lighter fluid was poured onto her legs, arms, face and stomach, and then lit on fire. This final torture lasted for a time of two hours. Junko Furuta died later that day, in pain and alone. Nothing could compare 44 days of suffering she had to go through.

When her mother heard the news and details of what had happened to her daughter, she fainted. She had to undergo a psychiatric outpatient treatment. Imagine her endless pain. Her killers are now free men. Justice was never served, not even after 20 years. They deserve a punishment much greater than they had put upon Furuta, for putting an innocent girl through the most unbearable suffering.

ये बस एक सारांश भर है…कहानी से जुड़ी बहुत सी बातें इण्टरनेट पर हैं…। खुद एक लड़की हूं… शायद इसीलिए जुंको की तकलीफ को खुद के ज्यादा करीब महसूस कर रही हूं… लेकिन शायद इसे पढ़ने के बाद आप भी कुछ वैसा ही दर्द महसूस कर रहे होंगे। घर पर पापा को नहीं पढ़ाया ये सब, क्योंकि वैसे ही बाप अपनी बेटियों की चिंता से कभी बाहर निकल पाते… ऐसे में ये सब पढ़कर कहीं न कहीं ये डर और बढ़ ही जाएगा… सच कहूं तो खुद भी थोड़ा डर गई हूं कि जो जुंको के साथ हुआ वो मेरे साथ भी तो हो सकता है या मेरे किसी जानने वाले के साथ…या आपके साथ..आपके घर में…।

अक्सर बड़ों को कहते सुना है कि कोई लड़की को तब तक परेशान नहीं कर सकता.. जब तक वो खुद ना चाहे… लेकिन सोचिए तो कितनी सच्चाई है इसमें…? समाज में शिक्षा का स्तर बढ़ रहा है… हर दूसरे इलाके में कॉलेज खुल रहे हैं.. पर क्या फायदा अगर सोच का स्तर इतना गिरता जाए तो…। हालांकि ये कहानी जापान की है पर अपने देश में ऐसी कितनी जुंको होंगी… जो आज भी यही सब सह रही होंगी.. आज तरह-तरह के आन्दोलन हो रहे हैं.. महंगाई के खिलाफ, भ्रष्टाचार के खिलाफ… एक आनदोलन और भी होना चाहिए.. समाज में व्याप्त असभ्यता के खिलाफ….।

    Agreed with the empathy & more, you express But spare some time to see Arrest and punishment details of Kamisaku & others in case…though i fully agree Not oNly the criminals But thy parents too responsible for the same, crimiNals should Be haNded over to puBlic By putting the Board in thy Neck describing details of thy crime after that should gone through the similar severe punishment & parents should Be charged for Not Being responsible enough to teach em to Be empathetic…to humans…Nyways just see the details Below…

    The boys were arrested and tried as adults; but, because of Japanese handling of crimes committed by juveniles, their identities were concealed by the court. However, a weekly magazine Shūkan Bunshun reported their real names, claiming that “human rights aren’t needed for brutes.”[5]

    For his participation in the crime, Kamisaku served eight years in a juvenile prison before he was released, in August 1999. In July 2004, he was arrested for assaulting an acquaintance, whom he believed to be luring a girlfriend away from him, and allegedly bragged about his earlier infamy.[1] Kamisaku was sentenced to seven years in prison for the beating.

    Junko’s parents were dismayed by the sentences received by their daughter’s killers, and enjoined a civil suit against the parents of the boy in whose home the crimes were committed. When some of the convictions were overturned on the basis of problematic physical evidence (the semen and pubic hair recovered from the body did not match those of the boys who were arrested), the lawyer handling the civil suit decided there was no case to be made and refused to represent them further.

    In July 1990 a lower court sentenced the leader to seventeen years in prison. The court sentenced one accomplice to a four to six year term, one accomplice to a three to four year term, and another accomplice to an indefinite five to ten year term. The leader and the first two of the three appealed their rulings. The higher court gave more severe sentences to the three appealing parties. The presiding judge, Ryūji Yanase, said that the court did so because of the nature of the crime, the effect on the victim’s family, and the effects of the crime on society. The leader received a twenty year sentence, the second highest possible sentence after life imprisonment. Of the two appealing accomplices, the one that originally got four to six years received a five to nine year term. The other accomplice had his sentence upgraded to a five to seven year term.[4]
