A five-year-old girl is raped, a ten-year-old girl gives birth, a beautiful looking girl’s life is destroyed by an acid attack over her, a college-going girl is teased, an office going girl is molested and harassed in the metro AND still we claim to protect our women. Above all, we consider them equal to Goddess Lakshmi, though we worship Goddess Lakshmi, we rape a woman  Are we really hitting you RIGHT? Right in your conscience? This is why we are writing this

What more can be said now?

It is an accepted fact that brutal crimes against women are occurring in India almost daily. Rape is the most heinous case of cruelty. It is ironical to note that such incidents are not actually rare in our country. There are several such cases happening every day where females from infants to old ladies, from upper-middle-class women in metro cities to Dalit women in the village- are subjected to immense sexual torture by lustful and shameful men who are, in most cases, known to the victims.

Women are an essential part of this country and must be treated well. And not everybody in this world is the same. There are many NGOs which have come forward to help rape victims, to protect our women, to respect their sexuality and to support them. Just not NGO’s even government has taken several measures to ensure “women safety”. But how many of these steps are known to common men and women?

Here are a few steps that we should force upon:

STRENGTHEN RAPE INVESTIGATIONS

The handling of forensic evidence such as fingerprints, hair or nail samples – a key component in rape cases where the onus lies with the prosecution to prove the rape -will be collected, transported, stored and checked in a careful manner.

The core competencies of the police need to be strengthened and officers must be given training and resources to carry out their work. Standard operating procedures for conducting investigations need to be applied across the country.

FAST-TRACK RAPE COURTS

One of the biggest impediments to gaining justice for rape victims is the lengthy duration of the trials.
India will invest more in the legal and judicial system and concentrate on the hiring of thousands more judges and prosecutors.

WITNESS PROTECTION PROGRAM

Victims and witnesses can be intimidated by the accused, who in some cases is granted bail by the court, even though rape is a non-bailable offense.
India will officially witness protection program in place for victims of sexual assault and other serious offenses.
