Kuthian da sir kut-dhana chahida, or if thats too extreme, there are other relevant possibilities...

Such a crime (in the holiest of places) and such criminals should be made an example of.

In my mothers 18 years growing up in Samrai (near Phagwara), there was complete security and freedom for all villagers to interact (irrelevant of caste or faith) and small girls could quite safely walk home from their relatives houses even after dark. Only time villagers used to get a little worried was when the Nihangs used to visit once a year on their Elephants (some mela) - worried as they were quite loud/violent and fond of high quantities of certain leaves.

Only once does my mother recall a crime - a burgler was caught (outsider). He was tied backwards to a donkey and the donkey left to roam around the village for 2 days, with children having fun as they do.

The burgler was then set free never to return (and most likely never to commit that crime again).

We need some style of old fashioned justice in India and in the UK!
