The Times of India says “Rape is a notoriously under-reported crime, thanks to its social stigma and because the culprits in most of the cases are known to the victim. Yet, of all the major crimes, the incidence of rape has registered the highest growth in the country in the last four decades.”
The issue is not “rape”, it is violence!
Rupee News has been reporting on this for a decade. For some insane reason, criticism of some countries is acceptable, but criticism of Bharat is taken as “Anti-Indianism”. Not sure why the level of tolerance in Bhrati society for free speech is so low. Most Bharati are proud of their democracy, however their tolerance ends when core their beliefs of ascendancy or failings are challenged, or shown to them in a mirror.
The “Daughter of India” is dead. She is also the daughter of Pakistan, the Daughter of Bangladesh, the Daughter of Lanka, the daughter of Bhutan, and the daughter of the world.
They forget their “democratic roots”. The basic norms of democracy are not followed.
When criticism of a certain Non-Indian leader was published the criticism was met with abuse from his supporters. The leader took a very tough stand, and today he can be criticized without fear of reprisals.
This is missing in Bharati society, and parliament has failed to address the issue of violence
Bharatis only now waking up to the pervasive nature of the disease of violence perpetuated on the minorities and the weak — which includes women and minorities.
Delhi is the rape capital of the world.
Rape cases in India more than doubled between 1990 and 2008, and national crime records show that 228,650 of the 256,329 violent crimes recorded last year had women as victims. The conviction rate for rape cases is 26 per cent.
According to experts only about ten percent of the rapes are reports. The TOI reports, that Delhi registered 568 cases of rape, compared to 218 in Mumbai in 2011 according to NCRB records. In the 2007-2011 period, Delhi topped the chart, followed by Mumbai, Bhopal, Pune and Jaipur.
While there is much chagrin in Bharat and the West over the latest rape in a moving bus–the Western media is silent. The Rape NGOs in America and Europe are silent, and the silence is deafening.
More than 2000 rape victims in Kashmir have come forward, but their cases are not heard, because the army is the culprit.
According to the data, 18,359 rape cases were registered in India in the first three quarters of this year while in the US, 93,934 and in South Africa 54,926 rape cases were registered respectively.
According to the data, the incidence of various crime per one lakh population in India are — murder (3), sex offences (4), rape (1.7), serious assault (24.6) robbery and violent theft (2.1), breaking and entering (8.2) and theft of motor cars (7.8).
According to the latest figures released by the Government of India, a woman is now raped in India every 20 minutes. Despite the increase in sexual violence the number of convictions is falling in Bharat.
In the past year there have been a number of high-profile cases which have caused outrage across the nation.
One of the most shocking attacks happened in the state of Haryana where the victim waived her right to anonymity. There Sixteen-year-old Shabnam was gang raped by eight men from her village. Her attackers took videos on their mobile phones.
When Shabnam’s father discovered that the images were being shared around the village he committed suicide out of shame.
But the brave schoolgirl wants the world to know what happened because she says too many victims are either too afraid or too ashamed to speak out.
“I don’t want the sacrifice of my father to be wasted,” she said. “I’ve decided to get them all punished so that whatever happened with me should never happen to anybody else again.”
The rise in sexual assaults in Haryana reflects what is happening in other states across India.
- A preference for sons and the illegal practice of female infanticide and foeticide have left the state with a badly skewed sex ratio.
- In Haryana there are just 830 girls per 1,000 boys.
- Women’s rights campaigner Rishi Kant says the problems are deep rooted within Indian society.
- “Because of these problems we are facing with female infanticide and foetcide, due to (the fact there are) less girls, young boys are doing all these crimes which are very heinous crimes and they should be booked immediately with a fast track court so that a proper sentence can be given against them.”
- Campaigners say India’s laws for the protection of women are robust but are demanding better policing and stiffer jail terms.
Lok and Rajha Sabah have failed to bring about change. The protesters on the streets of Delhi is a heartening site. Hopefully their will bring about changes which find solutions to societal issues.
Rape has little to do with eroticism. Rape is a crime of violence –it has little to do with sex. The young girl in question was abused with an iron rod!
In all the studies on this subject, societal norms play a big part in condoning violent behavior. Dalits are raped at random– and this is acceptable for the society at large.
When we say that Bollywood is soft-porn, they think this is supposedly Anti-Indian. Today, a majority of Indians think that Bollywood’s current shape is responsible for the high incidence of violence in Bharat.
Bollywood is a vehicle down the slippery slope of making violence acceptable. Bollywood has changed a lot since the days of Mahmood Studios. I was listening to an interview of Lata Mangeshkar — a truly piously religious woman, who does puja every day — but also sang one of the most profoundly devout “naat” in praise of Allah. But that was the previous generation. Today, those norms are gone!
The people of Bharat are incensed, and right so. We salute them! Everyone on this planet needs to support the anti-rape laws. Death penalty or castration should be in order — solutions being discussed in the civlized Bharati press as represented by the Hindu
Question for Dr. Jamil? Do Bharati intellectual exist? Where are they? Its impossible to have a meaningful discussion with moronic individuals who display no intellect and reduce discussion of history into a zero-sum game or Islamphobic comments
We used to have Bharati intellectuals like Mr. Kant and others on this site. Where are they? We should get them back.
We are challenging ourselves?
Unfortunately we are left with the likes of these guys, who have no knowledge, and all they can do is be abusive. Just our luck I guess — or do these few folks represent the majority? These couple of guys writing under different names spoil the mood and the decorum of the entire discussion. Their foul mouth and low ideas display their upbringing!
Its not that it bothers the editors, it takes us one second to seek nonsense, and one second to hit the delete button! Its just that one wonders –how could a society progress, if they have these sorts of individuals who peruse the internet. It is obvious that ours is not the only site that they are abusive now. It is second nature to them
Its folks with exactly this mentality who are the rapists!
