Before You Slutwalk, Please Kneel

Someone else posted critiques of the urban/upper caste/class nature of the walk and also raised questions about the Kashmir angle:

"What is beyond doubt is that rather than messing itself up in the possibility of the sisters being security informers, the police and the government would find it far more convenient – and useful – that the killings be projected through t...he “promiscuity” angle. Sections of the media, local as well as from outside [including especially Tehelka], have only obliged the establishment.... The answers to the tragic story of Arifa and Akhtara perhaps will not be found completely in the circumstances of the murders that have devastated their family. But rather in the conditions in which they had lived."
