Anti-rape protests in Delhi bring back a mother’s grisly memories

It may be 20 years for everyone else but for Safia ( name changed on request ), it seems like 20 seconds. Overwhelmed by the nationwide outrage over the Delhi gang-rape, she is anguished that no one helped when she and her 19-year-old daughter were stripped and gang-raped.

The mob burnt her daughter alive while she managed to escape on January 10, 1993, in the heat of the communal carnage in Mumbai, after the Babri Masjid was destroyed.
