The Worst Place in the World to be a Woman!

HangedThe recent spate of reports of rape, hanging, murder and senseless violence against girls in India has reached a new peak. This must be the worst place in the world to be a woman.

Rape is the penultimate violation of a female’s human rights, and unfortunately it is often followed by the ultimate violation – murder.

Where are the police? It varies between unwilling to accept a victim’s statement unless no other option is available, to being actual perpetrators themselves. A culture exists where police officers tell reporters “If you can’t prevent rape, you enjoy it”, and remains prevalent in India.

The politicians? Babulal Gaur’s opinion is that “sometimes it’s right, sometimes it’s wrong”. If that is his opinion, why is he the home minister responsible for law and order in the BJP-run central state of Madhya Pradesh?
