外文标题：Punjab minister kicks up row, calls death of Moga molestation victim 'God's will'
NEW DELHI: Punjab's education minister Surjit Singh Rakhra on Saturday stirred a fresh controversy when he sought to play down the death of a girl, who got killed after being molested and shoved off a moving bus owned by Punjab's ruling Badal family.
"Nobody can stop accidents. Whatever happens that happens by God's will," Surjit Singh Rakhra said on Saturday.
旁遮普邦教育部长Surjit Singh Rakhra周六引发了新的一起争议，他力图淡化女孩的死亡。该女孩在一辆行驶中公交车里遭猥亵后被扔下车，而公交车为旁遮普统治家族所有。
"We will take precautions in future but we can't stand in front of nature, whether it's accident or any other thing," Surjit Singh Rakhra added.
The family of the teenage girl has decided not to cremate the girl's body until the owners of the company running the bus service are booked for causing death by negligence. The bus belongs to Orbit Aviation, a company owned by Punjab deputy chief minister Sukhbir Badal.
The father alleged that he was being forced to reach a compromise and said he would not even allow an autopsy until his demand was met.
"My daughter needs justice. She was a little girl. Is our legal system so weak that it can't even mention charges against the owner?" the angry father said. "I have taken my son to a safe location. I was being pressurised to enter into a compromise with some people," he alleged.
What a irresponsible and insensitive statement,he should tender an unconditional apology or resign.

foolish people should be thrown out of political arena !! want to get some brownie points !!
So, if this man were walking down the street for a post prandial stroll and it got to be midnight and some one got too friendly with him too and then he jumped into a gutter and broke his miserable neck, that too would be God's Will . Oh, that sounds promising....

Gods must be crazy about the comments of the Punjab Minister. He may be booked for his allegations by the gods. This crime is man made not the god. It is a habit for the politicians blame the god for each and every thing.
