Rapes cases in India are on rise. Women are being treated as how they were treated about a century ago. The conspirers go unpunished, due to the fact that they are either government officials, politicians or connected to either. Goa witnessed a surge in rape cases against tourists and police department were unable to punish the offenders. On a larger note the Goa police officials claim that they do arrest the culprits but the court grants them bail. Today I read about Indian nationals being attacked in Australia and there’s a big outcry about it in India, but what about Indians attacking, raping and even killing the tourist who come to India as a safe destination. I don’t consider that the present scene would allow the tourists to make India their ideal destination. Indeed what I see in advertisements “Incredible India”, that’s true surely if things continue this way it will be called in disgust incredible India.
India has always portrayed as a safe location but even the Indian woman are now longer safe. I was following the Ruchika molestation case for a long time on the news channels. The DIG who was involved in this pedophile act had been successful in forcing the girl to commit suicide due to his extreme pressure tactics on the victims family. Now I hear that this devil DIG Rathore will also go unpunished as is the case in all other rape cases.
This week a 9 year old Russian tourist girl was raped in broad daylight at a Goa beach. No action by the police and the culprits still hang at large. These same offenders will be encouraged to commit more rapes and due to some political connection, they will continue to haunt a once peaceful society.
Dharavi the biggest slums in Mumbai one woman was raped by four last month and burned alive in front of her parents, this woman was supposed to get married this year. All the four offenders are at large and the police says the search is on.
These some of the very few highlights of the rapes but there are several more happening everyday in the Indian society and many are not even reported. Whether someone blames it on westernization, movies, or anything else. A rape is a rape and doesn’t need any excuse in any form of society. Indian government needs to look into this matter. I can only hope that the government looks into the same, because I have not seen since the independence that any government official or politician being sentenced to punishment in a rape case. This only plants seeds for more such crimes against the woman and even the younger generation feels that they can rape and get away because the examples led by the other such rapists.
