Fact-check: Was PM Modi wrong in claiming that culprits are being brought to justice within days?

There have been several such cases all across the country where the perpetrators have been bought to justice with short, swift trials.

Prime Minister, Narendra Modi was on his day-long visit to Gujarat to dedicate to the nation the National Salt Satyagraha Memorial at Dandi on Mahatma Gandhi’s death anniversary. While speaking with young professionals in a town-hall programme at the ‘New India Youth Conclave’ in Surat, Gujarat, amongst other things, he condemned crimes like rapes, which according to him, though still persists, but actions are being taken against the accused and government is trying to provide quick justice to the victims by speeding up the trials of the accused.

He in his speech mentioned that “culprits are hanged within 3 days, 7 days, 11 days and a month”.

The specific claim of culprits being hanged within days did not go down well with his political and ideological opponents, who have recently developed a penchant for furthering drivel without checking their facts.

One of the first people to react was Omar Abdullah, the former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir. He wanted the Prime Minister’s Office to furnish the data and also said that he would “eat his hat” if even “one case fits PM sahib’s imaginary timeline”.

Interestingly, even the self-proclaimed fact-check was who was recently doxxing and harassing young boys by revealing their identity simply because he didn’t agree with their political views and has been caught lying several times himself, furthered this lie against the Prime Minister.

Evidently, for the self-proclaimed fact-checkers who make it a habit to lie regularly themselves, their hate for Modi trumps their supposed commitment to finding the truth.

In reality, what Prime Minister Modi claimed is not a “lie” as the leftists would have one believe. There have been various cases where justice has been delivered in a speedy manner.

In August 2018 itself, a local court in Madhya Pradesh had concluded a hearing in 3 days and handed over a life imprisonment sentence to a child rapist. Datia Additional Sessions Judge Hitendra Dwivedi awarded life sentence to Motilal Ahirwar (25) after convicting him under section 376 (A)(B) of the Criminal Law (Amendment) Ordinance 2018 introduced recently as well as provisions of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act

Indian Express article

In July 2018 too, after a 5-day trial, a Madhya Pradesh court had pronounced the death penalty for a child rapist too.

Times of India article

In Karnataka, the trial was concluded in 22 days, with the Court handing over the death penalty for attempted rape and murder of a 15-year-old.

LiveLaw article

In Rajasthan, a man had been given the death penalty after a trial of only 22 days for raping his own daughter.

NDTV article

This is only the tip of the iceberg. There have been several such cases all across the country where the perpetrators have been bought to justice with short, swift trials.

While blinded liars like Omar Abdullah and AltNews founder Pratik Sinha could argue that the Prime Minister said that they were hanged within days instead of saying that the punishment was awarded to them, none of them bothered to mention the good work being done in delivering swift justice. That criticism would only be a technicality since from the time the punishment is awarded to the time a person is hanged, the convict by law has to exhaust all his appeal options.

The ones criticising this statement wanted to insinuate that the PM is incorrect in saying that justice in such heinous rape cases has not started being delivered swiftly. Clearly, as evidenced, their criticism was only borne out of hate and not factual.
