FIGHT AGAINST RAPE

  • by

Eradicating rapes from our country is the need of the hour. The uprising graphs of recent rape cases are such a dark spot in the present scenario of Indian society. So, we the youth of India have joined our hands to fight against “rape culture” and make India a better and safer place to live for women.  In day to day life, we see a number of such cases around us but it has become a cliche for us. But society is so unconscious about the consequences and worst conditions in upcoming times. “Rape” usually is a term described for intercourse without consent. But if we try to make things more comprehensive verbal abuse, sexual comments and other harassment are no less than rape. In the present scenario girl of 8 months to the lady of 75 years is not even safe in their own house. The question arises who actually is responsible for this. According to the Indian stereotypes, it is the short dress, moving out of the home late night and other such narrow-minded things are responsible. But the thing is one of 8 months was not wearing short clothes, the one with the Burka was not exposing anything. So basically we need to break these stereotypes and move ahead with a better ideology. Then again the question arises who is responsible for this. The one who is being raped or the one who is raping? Ofcourse the one who is raping. Raping or abusing someone sexually is not really a sign of manhood. In our society, the one who is raped is usually questioned more than the one who has raped. There’s always a fear in the mind of the victim and their family of being defamed than the one who has committed the crime. Rape is always been depicted as a   problem that has nothing to do with the culprit. Indian society believes in the ideology of don’t get raped rather than working on don’t rape. A woman is always depicted as a weaker section of the Indian stereotypical ideology, which is also a cause of giving uprise to discrimination among the genders. Seeking justice from such a feudal system remains a dream for the victim. The one committed the crime is set free and the victim is chained by the stereotypes of the society. In recent studies, it is found that Rape is the fourth most common crime against women in India. According to the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) 2013 annual report, 24,923 rape cases were reported across India in 2012. Out of these, 24,470 were committed by someone known to the victim (98% of the cases). On average, it is said that almost 106 rapes occur each day and this number is increasing with time. Now the question arises how can we fight with such a pest hollowing our country , making it unsafe for women also increasing the crime rate of our country ? The answer we feel is a strict law. Demanding a strict law like death penalty from government and making it come under implementation is the best medicine to remove such a pest. “Rope the rapist” can be the best phrase used for  Once such a law will come into implementation it would give a positive message to the society and not to indulge in such an activity.
