Violence is not to be tolerated no matter what. I feel this is especially true in countries such as India where women are at high risk of being violated and noone to speak for them. I'm speaking out in Canada for them.

I speak out against these atrocities every chance I get. We must keep up the agitation - it's the only way it will stop, as others have already said. Who is raising these men who commit such atrocities? That's where it starts - educating boys from a very early age about the human rights of ALL people and that they don't have the right to use such violence - against anyone!

Can you please also speak for women of Occupied Kashmir, for decades Indian Army and police have used rape as an intimidation tool and have committed vicious crimes against Muslim women, but no one listen to us and the matter always gets brushed off. Please remember Kashmiri women too, they are also victims of same disrespectful culture.

Sir I would like to bring to your notice if you are not aware of the fact that crime happens in India, Its not a surprise it's by choice, existing law is sufficient for the crime but what is lacking is its execution............. so whatever changes you decide to bring in the law will never be efficient unless be it executed...............share this message if you too feel its right; else it is as it was and will always be.

All violence against everyone must be stopped. It's time to bring back the 'Criminals Swing Dance': a.k.a. Public Hanging for those guilty, without any doubt, of violent crimes such as this against everyone.

hanging is violent. If you use violence to quell violence, we end up living in a terrorist world as we do now. If you hang a criminal, you are no different from a rapist. In fact you are probably worst as you take life. If you encourage others to have the right to kill, what's stopping the rapist from feeling he has the right to rape, or kill, or both?

Do you think it only happens in India? It happens everywhere even in North America? All the people of the entire earth has to stop thinking that women are second. We women are human beings and we are equal to men. Men and women have to have respect for each other.

Women count the same as men. This case should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law and these men should spend life in prison for raping and murdering this woman. Send the message that crimes against women will not be tolerated! No bakshish either! No corruption! This needs to end! Justice for the women of India!

THE BACK DROP.
In fact in today’s time it is really difficult to believe that ours is the same country that once upon a time had so much of moral values in the society and revered women like goddesses. Currently, the second generation after independence has just entered their teens and there is so much of deterioration that almost every day we come across the words like RAPE, SEXUAL HARASSMENT and what not.

THE BACK DROP.
In fact in today’s time it is really difficult to believe that ours is the same country that once upon a time had so much of moral values in the society and revered women like goddesses. Currently, the second generation after independence has just entered their teens and there is so much of deterioration that almost every day we come across the words like RAPE, SEXUAL HARASSMENT and what not. These words were not so common three decades ago in our society in fact we used to feel shy while uttering such words before our elders as they were considered to be obscene and therefore not allowed to be spoken out in open. So much so, even elders also used to abstain from using such words before their children that are now being used so frequently by one and all in our so called ‘ADVANCED’ society wherein we want to get exposed to everything much before time.
Actually, this is high time to decide by our society as to where do we want to reach. Are we heading in the right direction or not? To me speed in life doesn’t matter much what matters most is the right direction, because if we run faster and the direction is wrong, we would reach the wrong destination much faster and this is exactly what is being done by most of us in our society. Mind you when I say society it includes all like a commoner, a politician, minister, bureaucrat, and diplomat everyone in the country. As the structure goes like individual, family and then the society that everybody has so no one can be excluded and then what exactly do we inculcate in our children or how do we nurture them would attribute to what happens in our society, how one behaves with the other member of the society.
CURRENT SCENARIO
Now, what is happening around us is the sheer reflection of what the society is doing on a daily basis because what we do is practiced more by the other society members and not what we say or expect. The custodians of law are also from the society only and some where they think that since they are the law makers so they can play with it or the law is not meant for them or perhaps they are above it. In elite class eve teasing or other offences are taking place and not commoner this is not the case in fact the complaint from the elite class is registered considering their influence might come from somewhere or the elite class can put enormous pressure on the official but a commoner can’t do so or even if it does could easily be diffused. The officials don’t stop here they even go to further molest such victim physically or may be verbally and the height is when they become the judge and declare that no such incident has taken place with the victim or declare her a public property. In my opinion such individuals are also involved in equal amount of crime and should be booked for causing mental trauma to an already hurt woman.

POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS
What government is doing should be continued with every religiousness at the same time a few things are also suggested on short, intermediate as well as long term basis; as follows: -
1. All the public transport systems should be fitted with safety alarms that could be turned on in case of emergency by the person being molested by miscreants or a friend or any well wisher travelling in the vehicle, in order to inform and locate the same so that the person could be helped within time and the crime could be prevented or to nab the culprits on time, red handed from the spot.
2. Everyone should be made aware of the whole system such as boys must know about the pros and cons of the crime and related punishment and the girls must know about their rights and what to do, who to approach or how protect them and so on so forth.
3. Change in over all attitude of the society and proper implementation and enforcement of law besides practicing what we preach our youngsters and raise them to be a real good citizen and above all a geed human being that respects everyone as we used to do in yesteryears like our forefathers. Then only we could make ours is a dream country. I wish we all could do so, someday.

RAPE IS EVEN WORST THAN A MURDER. BY KILLING A PERSON, HE/SHE DIES ONCE, BUT, RAPE VICTIM DIES EVERY SECOND OF ONE'S LIFE. NO MERCY AT-ALL TO THESE CULPRITS, NO TRIALS, STRAIGHT AWAY DEATH SENTENCE.
