    Eight Hindu men accused in the gang rape and killing of an eight-year-old Muslim girl in India's Jammu and Kashmir state have pleaded not guilty in their first court appearance.

    Monday's court appearance comes as angry protests over the case spread across the country.

    The child's battered body was found in a forest in January, a week after she went missing while grazing her family's ponies.

    Police say the accused men, all Hindus, planned the child's kidnapping for over a month as part of a plan to scare her Muslim nomadic tribe away from the area.

    Police said the child was sedated and held captive at a Hindu temple where she was repeatedly raped before being strangled and bludgeoned to death.

    Protests erupted over the case earlier this month, after a former government official and a police officer who was investigating her parents' complaint about their missing daughter were named in the police charge sheet.

    Others are accused of trying to cover up the crime, and four police officers have been arrested so far, said Deepika Singh Rajawat, a lawyer representing the victim's family.

    Opposition leader Rahul Gandhi held a candlelit vigil at India Gate in New Delhi, the same site where thousands of people demonstrated in 2012 against a brutal gang rape in the capital.

    "Like millions of Indians, my heart hurts tonight," Mr Gandhi wrote on Twitter after addressing an estimated 5,000 people at Thursday's midnight vigil.

    "India simply cannot continue to treat its women the way it does."

    Sexual violence remains a taboo in India, and survivors fear stigma or retribution if they report attacks.

    But the number of cases that police register has been steadily rising following national outrage at the fatal gang rape of a student on a bus in New Delhi in 2012.

    Nearly 35,000 rape cases were reported to Indian police and 7,000 convictions were made in 2015, both increasing by about 40 per cent from three years earlier, according to government data.

    All matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration. We are all of one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There’s no such thing as death, life is only a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves.

    I nearly lost my job at SeaWorld during uni for telling an Indian bloke that if he shoves his wife and berates her one more time I’ll remove his head from his shoulders. Some of them are horrendous

    Seriously who'd be a Catholic. Must still be heaps of dumb motherf**kers out there who for some reason still believe.

    Keep on fleecing the flock I guess.

    George Pell: Catholics asked in newspaper to chip in for Cardinal's legal costs

    Supporters of Cardinal George Pell are being asked to contribute to his legal fund through a series of advertisements.

    Some of the ads have appeared in the Catholic Weekly, the news journal published by the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney.

    In an article published on the Weekly's website it also said: "When Cardinal Pell took leave from his role as Prefect of the Vatican Secretariat for the Economy to voluntarily return to Australia nearly 12 months ago to fight the charges, many supporters wanted to contribute to his legal costs."

    Cardinal Pell is fighting against historical sexual offence charges. He has pleaded not guilty.

    Media reports estimate that each court day is costing Cardinal Pell tens of thousands of dollars.

    A date for the first trial is expected to be set next week.

    There has been a mixed response from some in the legal fraternity to the advertisements.

    NSW-based lawyer Peter Kelso, who has represented hundreds of clergy abuse victims, said the Cardinal was entitled to raise money.

    "The Catholic Weekly is the only place that can run advertisements like this," he said.

    But Ingrid Irwin, a lawyer from Victoria who has previously represented some of the accusers against Cardinal Pell, described the advertisements as "hugely unfair".

    The donations are being managed by the Victorian firm Ferdinand Zito and Associates.

    A spokesperson for the firm has told the ABC that they cannot comment because of legal professional privilege.

    Katrina Lee from Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney referred the ABC to a previous statement, which said: "An independent fund was established where people could contribute to his costs. The Archdiocese of Sydney did not establish the fund nor is it managing the fund."

    It has also previously said it is not responsible for Cardinal Pell's legal bills.

    Gospel of Cliffy 15:20-23: "And when Barrett saw the prodigal son making his way home he ran to him and restored him to the family and put a jersey on his back and said to him, "We're desperate son. Could you fill in at half, 5/8 or hooker?". And the prodigal son replied, "Sure thing. I can kick goals too if you don't want your heart in your mouth when DCE is lining one up from straight in front". And there was much rejoicing."
