Both parents and government are responsible. Men and Women must speak for Women and protect them. In short we need to look in these areas:
- Law to become stricter
- The punishment to the rape must be shown so that it instills fear in the rapists
- Movies/serials/children games/cartoons must go through strict verification
- Modesty in both men and women
- Religion – Showing gods and goddesses running after one another or having pictures or idols of sex of gods and goddesses gives them the right to do these acts. For if religion teaches that, then who can stop? Why do terrorists take killing so seriously. Because religion/god tells them to do so.
NOW, LET ME EXPLAIN
(1) God made Man first like Him, having the character of male and female. Then He divided man and woman from Man and they became a separate entity having different characters and make up.
(2) He loved both of them for both together carried the image and likeness of God.
(3) He gave beauty in a woman so that Man could be attracted to the woman for companion sake, through marriage and procreation.
(4) When a man hurts a woman, he hurts God who created her in His own image and when a woman hurts a man he hurts God who made him in his image.
(5) Both carry equal importance before God. Both are equally valuable before our God who is no respecter of persons.
(6) I know some may be offended when we say that it is appropriate and right for women to dress modestly, the same teaching would apply to men in principle. Both men and women should bring glory to God in their manner of dress.
(7) By modesty I don’t mean than a woman must cover herself from head to toe. There are cults and religions in the world that demand this of women. In a 1996 survey of judges in India, 68 percent of the respondents said that provocative clothing is an invitation to rape. I know some have been raped even though they did not wear provocative clothes. But, modesty will curb people’s unnecessary stare. It’s good not to become a stumbling block to others who are weak. We need to take care of one another.
(8) You know women are aroused by touch and men are aroused by sight. If women dress up modestly, there will not be temptation to possess for a man. I am not saying when you dress up well men will stop their advances and their lustful gaze. But it’s just a precaution, knowing we are living in a fallen world. I am not blaming them. In fact men have no right to look at a woman with lust that is what the Bible says, but in this sinful world we need to take care of one another.
(9) Don’t we find Mother’s of girl child telling their child sit properly, pull up dupatta etc. This is done to protect them from the lustful gaze. The beautiful body is given by God for marriage purpose, but it is taken advantage outside marriage which is wrong. If women didn’t have a beautiful body man would not marry. This is just one of the aspects for marriage and procreation.
NO FEAR OF LAW FOR THE LAW OR ENFORCERS
(1) LAW HAS TO BECOME STRICTER and the fear should be shown to the people. Like the Police beating the rapists so that the rapists will have the fear of punishment. Usually this is not shown to public so there is no fear.
(2) NOT ENOUGH POLICE IN GENERAL: There aren’t enough police dedicated to protecting ordinary citizens, rather than elites and the officers that are available often lack basic evidence-gathering and investigative training and equipment.
(3) FEW FEMALE POLICE: Studies show that women are more likely to report sex crimes if female police officers are available. India has historically had a much lower percentage of female police officers than other Asian countries. When women do report rape charges to male police, they are frequently demeaned:
(4) THE POLICE REFUSE TO FILE A COMPLAINT. Instead, they ask such vulgar details, it was as if she was being raped all over again. There is no lady police officers in many stations.
(5) BLAMING PROVOCATIVE CLOTHING: There’s a tendency to assume the victims of sexual violence somehow brought it on themselves. In a 1996 survey of judges in India, 68 percent of the respondents said that provocative clothing is an invitation to rape.
(6) ACCEPTANCE OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: A 2012 report by UNICEF found that 57 percent of Indian boys and 53 percent of girls between the ages of 15 and 19 think wife-beating is justified. A recent national family-health survey also reported that a sizable percentage of women blame themselves for beatings by their husbands.” When a boy grows up seeing his father assault his mother, he starts to accept such a behavior and repeats it.
(7) A LACK OF PUBLIC SAFETY: Women generally aren’t protected outside their homes. The gang rape occurred on a bus, and even Indian authorities say that the country’s public places can be unsafe for women. Many streets are poorly lit, and there’s a lack of women’s toilets.
(8) PUBS AND DRINKING IN PUBLIC: There are also some women who drink, smoke or go to pubs and then some people take advantage.
(9) STIGMATIZING THE VICTIM: When verbal harassment or groping do occur in public areas, bystanders frequently look the other way rather than intervene, both to avoid a conflict and because they — on some level — blame the victim, observers say. Male politicians contribute to the problem, making statements that make light of rape or vilify rape victims’ supporters.
(10) ENCOURAGING RAPE VICTIMS TO COMPROMISE: In a recent separate rape case, a 17-year-old Indian girl who was allegedly gang-raped killed herself after police pressured her to drop the case and marry one of her attackers.
Rape victims are often encouraged by village elders and clan councils to “compromise” with the family of accused and drop charges — or even to marry the attacker. Such compromises are aimed at keeping the peace between families or clan groups. What’s more, a girl’s eventual prospects of marriage are thought to be more important than bringing a rapist to justice.
(11) A SLUGGISH COURT SYSTEM: India’s court system is painfully slow, in part because of a shortage of judges. The country has about 15 judges for every 1 million people, while China has 159. A Delhi high court judge once estimated it would take 466 years to get through the backlog in the capital alone.
(12) FEW CONVICTIONS: For rapes that do get reported, India’s conviction rate is no more than 26 percent. There is also no law on the books covering routine daily sexual harassment, which is euphemistically called “eve-teasing.” The passing of a proposed new sexual assault law has been delayed for seven years.
(13) LOW STATUS OF WOMEN: Perhaps the biggest issue, though, is women’s overall lower status in Indian society. For poor families, the need to pay a marriage dowry can make daughters a burden. India has one of the lowest female-to-male population ratios in the world because of sex-selective abortion and female infanticide. Throughout their lives, sons are fed better than their sisters, are more likely to be sent to school and have brighter career prospects.
In recent days, Indian politicians have put forward a slew of potential remedies for India’s sexual violence problem. But it’s worth noting that it will be hard to end discrimination against women at police stations when it starts in the crib.
