Rape - The National Crime of India

Rape - The National Crime of India

December 19, 2012

Even if a woman chooses to walk the street naked at night, it doesn't mean she is asking for it.

There is no way to keep insanity under control in NCR. It gets worse by the day and each nightfall gives it a golden opportunity to silently grow to unimaginable levels. The title 'Dil-walo ki Dilli' is no more apt in today's times and I would refrain myself from using it henceforth. Dilli no more belongs to Dilwale, but to rapists, molesters and criminals who clearly don't have a heart.

All this while we were waiting for yet another incident, with eyes comfortably closed, and mind clearly diverted elsewhere. That is, precisely, our reaction to almost everything except cricket, religion and Bollywood. The rapists decided to rise from their momentary slumber and strike us again. This time, they chose a white-line private bus with tinted windows as the scene of crime. While, the common man was fined again and again for less than twenty percent tinted coating on the windows of his car, this bus managed to stay coated. Shall I ask 'How'? Our corrupt police officers were busy cutting off 'challans' for tinted windows during the end of the last quarter to meet their sales-targets. How did a full size bus manage to escape their magnifying glasses?

The rapists gave our media another story which they'll use to its full potential, and then forget about it once its initial impetus to generate TRPs is spent. This, my friend is reality. No matter what they blurt on news channels or what they write in our elite yellow newspapers, no one really bothers about the victim or the state of women in this country. Unless the general attitude towards women is washed out and re-painted with a little bit of respect, to start with, nothing is going to change.

A few years back, incidents like the recent one used to shock me. Now, it is a matter of daily routine. Not a day goes by when a rape doesn't occur. More than half the cases don't get reported. Our police force gives a tough time to victims and their families who have the guts to report a crime by refusing to lodge a complaint, to keep the 'on-paper' crime rate low. India has become a perfect example of a corrupt system polluting its own heart and soul to such an extent that it will soon die.

Have you ever heard a victim being blamed for the crime against him/her. In India, this irony balances perfectly, every equation of a crime like rape. The victim was drunk or provocatively dressed and hence she was asking to be raped. Real men don't say no to a woman in need, so they oblige her by raping her and then, in most cases murdering her as well. Why, I ask. Well, simply because she asked for it.

As I type this, my heart goes out to the para medic from Dehradun who is battling for her life in an ICU after being gang raped by four cowards. She has been scarred for life, however long that might be, for watching an evening show of a movie. I, along with the women and the lesser known 'sensible' men of India, pray for her speedy recovery and hope God gives her strength to bear this immense pain.

No amount of cuss words, candle marches, discussions in the Parliament or articles like this one would be able to make any difference, whatsoever in today's situation. Rapes are a reality and they won't stop happening unless laws dealing with them are altered drastically. Capital punishment or chopping of the genitals of those found guilty and then letting them go ahead with their lives are the only two punishments, which in my opinion are almost apt for a crime such as rape. Unless India gets strict laws and punishments to deal with rapists, they will flourish and continue to dishonour women and society as a whole. It is high time our law maker’s spring back into action. I personally, don't have the courage to hear about one more incident. Also, I have ordered a pepper spray and urge every woman who resides in NCR and is reading this to get one for her as well.

    Victim blaming happens in other countries too. Check this excerpt from this article on wiki

    "In the United States and Canada, rape is unique in that it is the only crime in which there are statutory protections designed in favor of the accuser. These were enacted in response to the common defense tactic of "putting the accuser on trial". Typical rape shield laws prohibit cross-examination of the accuser (alleged victim) with respect to certain issues, such as her or his prior sexual history, or the manner in which she or he was dressed at the time of the rape. Most states and the federal rules, however, provide exceptions to the rape shield law where evidence of prior sexual history is used to provide an alternative explanation for physical evidence, where the defendant and the alleged victim had a prior consensual sexual relationship, and where exclusion of evidence would violate the defendant's constitutional rights."

    And yes, in 1987, when a rape had happened in Mathura, the protests and candle light marches had forced the law makers to revise the laws and make it to a maximum of ten years.

    here is the wiki article

    And a legal article on the same

    I believe it’s the responsibility of our Police & judicial department to act sensibly punishing the criminal strictly (literally)so that every citizen thinks a 100 times before committing such a crime. Whilst, an individual citizen should be active and socially responsible to boldly stand against it and shouldn't just be a spectator in the crowd.

    65 years have gone by since India became free from colonial rule. The soil of India has a reputation of giving birth to great men and women in the past. So many things have changed in the world that adulterates and influences the human mind to resort to crime of violent nature. The hard fought freedom and independence seems to benefit only the politicians, their immediate family members, and their henchmen.

    Alcohol, Drugs, Porn on Internet, Video games, Sexually implicit movies, India’s caste and dowry systems and many more that have to do so much that induce crime against vulnerable children and women in India or elsewhere on this earth.

    There are over 1 million lawyers in India. India graduates about 80,000 lawyers every year and at least a quarter of them are involved in proving the guilty are innocent supported by loopholes in the Law. The way the politicians conduct themselves in discussions and debates in Indian parliament is a huge comical street drama.

    Instead of being there to pass legislature to get the country’s recurring problems under control are wasting time and energy hurling abuse at each other while gang rapes and other crimes are on the increase by the hour. Police force being pawns in the hands of political thugs the terror imposed on India’s women is deplorable and disgusting.

    Indian police is so corrupt they would turn a blind eye even if their own wives and daughters were raped on the streets. How many more rapes does the Indian Govt. think should take place before sufficient laws are passed to stop Rape culture in India?

    Traditional art of wooing a woman for the sake love seems to gradually get replaced by taking the liberty to over power women for the sole purpose sex in other words used like toilet paper in the west “Wipe one’s S**t and toss it aside.

    The entire world seems to be so possessed by devils when it comes to making a distinguished difference between Love and Sex. Instead of “Love is in the Air” it is now “Sex is in the Air”.
    It is really a shame that India’s men need to have decency hammered into their brains when it comes to treating women with respect (if they are not born with it).

    Is “Indian Spring” the answer? The time is ripe for India’s rise against all forms of crime instead of spitting out empty threats.
