Crime Against Women in India.

Reading time: 3 min

With the latest incident of brutal killing of a 2 year old Twinkle Sharma at Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh, It is clear that Female including girl-child are not secure in this country.

According to National Crime Record Bureau of 2013 annual report, 24,923 rape cases were reported across the country. Out of these 24,470 were committed by those who were known to victims. With these number we can calculate that each day approx. 68 girls were raped across country. By now, this no. has been increased rather than decrease.

Security

With the increasing number of these crimes, government has raised many security system across the country but it fails because of us only.

The new or changed punishment are less than expected but enough to decrease the crime, but still it is increasing, and we the whole population are responsible.

How We?

We, here refer to each and every Individual of our nation and also all over the world for these crime outside country. Now, how we are responsible.

  • These crimes are encouraged when we ignore small things like teasing, assaulting , flirting etc. If we start taking action against them during initial phase, they will not be strong enough to commit these crimes.
  • “She is not in my relation”, sometimes we say this line and move ahead ignoring the assaulting of a women by someone. We should keep in our mind that if she is not in our relation, then our family member may came into this situation also and people will say the same. hence, we should help women at the time, when they are need, whether they are our relative or unknown.
  • “Social Experiment”, sometimes many people conduct social experiment to check, whether people help a needy person or not, this is just a similar story to the story of “The shepherd” who did not get help while he was really attacked by Lion.
  • Sometimes, when people tried to help them, women say “this is our personal matter”. This should be stopped, because if that is their personal matter, it should be solved inside house, if it is in public place and showing violence, it should be stopped, and no one should, just see the fight and say, this is their personal matter.
  • Forcing physically as well as blackmailing technically is also Rape. Like, women usually trust their partner and share their personal pictures, which sometimes get viral. A women should not share their personal pictures to anyone, because Love always needs soul not body parts.

Solution:

From the first paragraph, we noticed that the no of rape is maximally committed by the person, whom the victim know. So some ways are :

  • Don’t believe 100% to anyone rather than your parents.
  • Don’t make 100 friends, but make on friend who is loyal to you, whether of opposite sex.
  • Keep some defensive instrument like Chilli powder, knife etc.
  • Don’t get mad in love.
  • Every person, whether young, old and child should be supportive to victim whether men or women.
