Martyrdom if raped

The recent announcement by UP Chief Minister to give Rs. 25000 compensation to the rape victims is fundamentally flawed. It showcases the inability or unwillingness of the government to bring the accused under the law. Its like you commit the sin, I will cleanse it. It seems to be a very good scheme for the rapists.
Does Mayawati think that the rape victims will be given a hero’s welcome  at home after collecting the money from her? “Hail the great warrior, she withstood the overtures of  sex maddened animals and going to bear the pain for the rest of her life.”
How can a crime which traumatises the victim, can be undone by monetary compensation?
The anguish of the UP Congress chief Rita Bahuguna Joshi is understandable, but the words she used only leads to another controversy. This has resulted into a skirmish between the BSP and congress and the main issue is sidelined.
