My first reaction is yes the death penalty for these guys, and in the same manner they killed this woman. A metal rod up inside of their bodies stirred around a bit, but that would make me/us no better than them.

So may I suggest something more constructive than the death penalty? Perhaps it has already been suggested I don’t know, but if not then I suggest making an example out of these men:

Castrate them and make them do public service for the rest of their life.

Then work for a law which mandates this for anyone convicted of violent rape. I think this would greatly deter rape; men are very sensitive about their masculinity, most do not want to lose it and be faced with public shame.

Human beings need to respect one another; women too need to be respected. Your mother was a woman, without womanhood you would not be here, treat all women as if they are your mother.

Our country is no better. I wish we would have such a law too.

Apparently there are members of the indian government who have allegations of sexual assault against them which partly explains why these cases are not treated seriously by the police. They are there to do the government's bidding.

It's hard to stay neutral when you read news like that and resist the eye-for-an-eye mentality. But torturing those who have committed those horrendous acts brings the society to the same level.
Just because it's the law it doesn't make it morally right.
That being said, I'm sure I'd feel different if it were someone I knew personally that got hurt

More worryingly is the fact that women, children and babies are being raped every day in India. The Hindu faith and the current law in fact perpetuates and encourages such behaviour by not dealing with it properly, if at all, so creating and allowing a nation of serial rapists to continue with their "normal" lives

Chally I agree with u! I mean all indians arent bad! I hav so many indian friends n they r really nice people! The only thing that spoila the name of indians r the muslims! Only muslims do all this n they treat females like shit n rape them! All hindus treat girls like gods. I have actually seen their ceremonies and rites. So moo and lazyy stfu and go on google! All the hindus (madrasi punjabi gujrati sindhi etc)are good and united people.The muslims spoil it all. If u ever read all this u will find that the 95% of criminals r the muslims. So if u wanna hate anyone,hate muslims.
Why should we hate others? Because of you??
What I saw on CNN is 5 drunk hindus headed by Ram Singh who commited this brutal crime.
Cnn also mentioned that rape happens on a daily basis in your country and is predominantly done by the wealthy ones onto the less fortunate. How pathetic and backward!

I dont think they should be executed. Instead put them each in a seprate jail cell with a 300lb "bubba" who never bath and wants to have a little"fun" himself. After sharing a cell with this "Bubba" for about a year, lets see what they think about rape.

While I m upset with the victims destiny. It certainly is a positive sign to see young Indians, both women & some men protesting for their rights. Its time women are empowered in India & rape, dowries & female infanticide etc condemned.

this is actually an old problem that has been recently highlighted by these bus rapist scumbags. Are not the rapists from high caste families who are taught by their parents they are high caste and feel that they are free to do as they please? Then you scumbags enter our countries with that mentality so why should you not be treated as dogs?

Actually, no... this case and the other one in Punjab were perpetrated by SIKHs... it's what they both seem to have in common. And they are definitely not from 'affluent' or 'wealthy' backgrounds... infact, there was jealousy involved in the first case because the girl was doing well in her life whilst the others (rapists) were... well, not and she did not associate with them at all... yes, the victim was known to the rapists very well.

But that's not to say there aren't other cases involving so called higher castes.

They will just get used to it and enjoy it.
No, they need to be castrated first... then gimped out to all the other prisoners.
And it should be recorded and uploaded to the web for the world to see.
So if ever they get out... they will seek refuge with their local 'Hijra' colony LOL

Well, to be fair, the UK isn't doing that much better.
Not that I'm excusing Indians at all.
But there is a rape reported here (UK) every 34 minutes:

http://www.fawcettsociety.org.uk/index.asp...

And in India, where the population is ten times as vast,
a rape is reported every 22 minutes:

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/jyoti...

And in the Congo, it is every one minute:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/afr...

And in the USA, it is every 5 minutes:

Interesting statistics.

It is estimated that 90 percent of rapes in India go unreported.

The Indian police are all on the take and would probably blame the victim.

Also a raped Indian is treated like an untouchable so female are afraid to admit their rapes.

Such a sad country for females to have to survive in.
