Concerns Over Women Safety
Sahil Bhat4/16/2018 12:10:28 AM
Speaking of the inception where the violence against women first outraged leading all thunderstruck with a high concern - is the MAHABHARAT wherein Dropdi was asked to uncover. Contemplating that, lord Krishna came to her rescue. But 21st century does seem to hire any recipient like Krishna.
Let's speak factually…
A minor in Kathua state of J&K battered, tortured and raped does imply a struggling state of government against misogyny and lax attitude reinforcing their betterment. Asifa, 8 year old girl from a Bakharwal community in Jammu, was multiple times raped and then brutally killed by the lawmakers. Not only that, the vehement support from the ruling party to the Special Police Officer (SPO) Deepak Khujaria, the rapist, makes all skeptical towards faith establishments and puts all in dismay and perplex over her father's helping door. This is not the first time the state has observed a massive hullabaloo - expressing the concern over women safety, since 2009 Sopian incident.
A state where the authority itself is dominated by a woman, challenges the statehood, and pumps the notion of future fatigued development.
Apparently, the opposition at this moment doesn't leave any stone unturned to put on the show of sympathy and solace followed by counting atrocities of current regime. And further story narrated is the blame game. The whole issue gets politicized with communal colour that leads the whole system shapes as weirdo.
Actually, after the Nirbhaya incident, the laws were subject to intense scrutiny.
Immediately, Anti-Rape Bill was passed, which gave birth to an iota of hope to masses. It clearly stated - the one indulged in this crime is liable to harsh punishments which includes minimum 20 years of imprisonment that can be extended to life time. But despite that, the things are not ready to return to normal.
In USA, the punishments are categorized as first, second and third degree of rape punishments.
But factually, India serves much harder than them, certainly, since Nirbhaya incident. Where we lack is the proper provision of that particular punishment. The hardest of which could go to the extent - that curtailing their social roots by publicizing their names in their world.
Another chapter - when BJP thundered with a spectacular victory in recent assembly elections Uttar Pradesh, its slogan robust - Mahila ke samaan main BJP maidan main, but the recent Unnao tragedy unleashes a worrisome perpetrating a big threat. As per the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) Report 2016 - the total incidents of crime against women in India has surged in 2016 as to 2015 by 3 percent.
Sincerely speaking, this statistics doesn't even stand against the tall misdeed perpetrated by Congress during its regime, however, what is terrifying is the nullifying behaviour of lawmakers cognate with both cases. And this one has the BJP MLA Kuldeep Sengar itself shamelessly throwing the chunk of blame at opposition as a vendetta. They're not the common mass in fact serve law and have BJP imprint on their uniform. With a gruesome incident, reflecting the bad temperament of government, where ministers like Meenakshi Lekhi act lazy to comment, registers a significant debacle for the saffron brigade in the sector of WOMEN SAFETY.
The recent development emerging with the Prime Minister's assurance of penalizing the culprits gives cold shoulder, but, unless the action doesn't materialize, it really turns out hard to establish faith and return to normal.
One can apparently judge there're parameters where BJP failed to deliver 100 percent; their acknowledgement is mandatory, however, when it comes to the safety of women - it cannot be swept under the carpet.
The appalling picture comes in limelight with rhetorical comments shielding the advocates of barbarism. With 39 rapes per hour and only 2 out of 8 rape cases end up in conviction, the road to justice appears really sluggish for a rape victim. India doesn't lack behind, when it comes to implementing stringent laws for rape and other crimes related to it but when the lawmakers itself turns into the wrongdoer - people ought to lose sleep.
