It really saddens my soul from deep inside when i hear things about my country like “India is the rape capital of the world” but the fact is that IT IS PARTIALLY TRUE. When you have to read the same kind of news again and again, it indeed changes your mentality and that has what happened with the world. People across the world are reading with horror in their eyes about the sexual assaults and the kind they are that unfolds in India every minute, every day, every second. It makes everyone think “what kind of country is that” and so does it make me think too……
women are a massive problem in India. According to the country’s National Crime Record Bureau, crimes against women have increased by 7.1 percent since 2010. The number of rapes reported has also risen. Nearly one in three rape victims in India is under the age of 18. One in 10 are under 14. Every 20 minutes in India, a woman is raped. Damn!!! These are some scary statistics. India ranks third in rape, wondering who comes first??
well its the United States. In India, a country of over 1.2 billion people, 24,206 rapes were reported in 2011. The same year in the United States, a nation of 300 million, 83,425 rapes were reported. In the United States, every 6.2 minutes a woman is raped. The point is rapes are happening everywhere and we are not here to discuss who comes first and who comes last but WHY DOES IT HAPPEN int he first place. Rape is a global problem and its not just INDIA facing it.
Why Rape Seems Worse in India Than Everywhere Else? The brutality of cases is almost equal everywhere.
It is often seen that more than the criminals, the victims are blames for such horrifying acts which actually makes me go bonkers. When a girl was raped on a moving bus in New Delhi in a brutal way pulling her intestines out there were many out there blaming the girl. She was dead and i am glad she could not listen to all the bullshit people talked about her but this is not just in India, in Steubenville, Ohio, two young men who were convicted of raping a 16-year-old girl too intoxicated to consent continue to be defended as upstanding football players while the reputation of the young woman is smeared. When the verdict came out, A CNN reporter almost portrayed the rapists as ” “These two young men that had such promising futures, star football players, very good students, literally watched as they believed their lives fell apart.” HE literally made the world believed that the girl was wrong and the two boys were victims.
This is the sad mentality of many people across the globe. Never ever believe what other have to say on the incident, instead for once in your life, use your own brains and speak out, taking a right stand. The story further floated out as Victim making up the rape story!!!! Ghosh!! this was so stupid. Just weeks after the Steubenville story broke, two high school football players in Torrington, Connecticut were accused of raping a 13-year-old girl. The response? Dozens of people from the town took to social media to berate and blame the 13-year-old accuser.
I would just request you all to be a bit more understanding no matter what corner of world you belong to. Your steps and actions can create greater impact on lives of people affected. Hence it becomes very important to take the right stand and stand up for the truth.
