Being a Delhiite, I can say that Delhi/NCR is not at all safe for women, especially who are self-employed. It’s a place, where you can easily find cases of women assaulting and prostitution. There was the news of rape case in the past week, in which 4 people have done gang rape with a working woman. She was returning to the home and they drag her in their car on the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway. Now the question arises- who is responsible for the incident? The girl, who was going back to her home after completing her work in the office or the police, who believe that rape incidents are depend on the timings. It is appalling how Gurgaon police drawn a statement to prevent rape cases- “Women should not work after 8 pm to avoid rape.” According to this statement, women are safer in the daytime. Is that so? I don’t know why police don’t accept their flaws and help women by giving them protection.
When we think about the solutions, fewer say cab facilities should be provided in the late night and hire guards to drop the lady worker at her home. Well! I think these are just temporary tricks to avoid rapes. Government should take austere initiative to blackout such cases. If a person is found as a criminal and arrested in a rape case, then there should be only one punishment for him- sentence to death. Time has changed now and so the mentality of the society. It is true that in 90’s, people believe in “don’t hate the criminal, hate the crime.” But now, I think we should hate the criminal and his crime of course. We cannot prevent such cases, but we can stop them. For these criminals, only Umar Qaid is not enough. Such criminals should be charged penalty- sentence to death.
People should fight for this, so that this blot can be remove from our society.
