RAPE IS JUST NOT A CRIME; IT'S A SIN, MEN IN OUR COUNTRY NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND THIS
"RAPE" the term itself invokes a feeling of terror inside us.
The occurrence of such heinous crimes which ought to be a shocking incident for us has become a very normal and common event in all our lives, like a daily routine. Why is it? What's the reason?
It's actually rather simple BECAUSE WE'RE THE PROUD CITIZENS OF OUR COUNTRY, INDIA, where RAPE has evolved into a CULTURE.
Whenever another case comes across, the whole nation awakens with a fury, protests and candlelight marches are being held, we talk and discuss it among our friends and families, we post about it in our social media accounts, express our grief, anger and acknowledge the need of a CHANGE, and then very conveniently forget about it, till other such incident takes place.
Rape in India: There are countless such incidents taking place in our country every day, but statistically one rape occurs every 16 minutes and 88 such crimes are reported daily in our country, according to the reports of the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB).
SOME OF THE EARLIER CASES
A few cases that instantly come to my mind whenever the topic is raised are the 2012 Delhi gang rape and murder 'Nirbhaya' case, the 2018 'Kathua' case of Jammu & Kashmir, the 2019 Hyderabad gang rape, and the recent horrific incident at Hathras.
After the Nirbhaya incident, many people raised questions about the girl, 'Why was she outside her home so late at night?' 'What was she doing with her male friend on the bus?' Such nasty remarks were made on the girl and her family; the same happened for the Hyderabad case also and this highlights the patriarchal mindset of our country and the Hathras crime depicts the shameful prevalence of the caste system in our society.

MENTALITY OF THE SOCIETY
In India, the girls are always to be blamed, one way or another. Most men of our country still think "Women invites Rape", through their behavior, dressing sense, interaction style, late-night hangouts and parties, and many more. India has steadily become a "No Country for Women."
My question to such people is if women are at fault for such unfortunate brutal and cruel tortures upon themselves, then 'Why was the eight-year-old girl Asifa Bano abducted, raped and murdered in Jammu & Kashmir?' She was just a child, who didn't even know the meaning of the word RAPE. 'How did she instigate those group of men, all adults to molest her?'
Just have a look at these videos only
Indian Women are terrified of the Rape Culture of our country. They feel unsafe; constantly looked upon by the lustful eyes of men.
What should be done to prevent further such heinous acts?
The Government should strengthen the security and strict and severe laws be applicable against such offense. The approach of the legal system should be more fast-paced.
The mentality of men needs to change. It is the ULTIMATE CHANGE that our country needs...
And this will begin with parents educating their boys what to do and what not to do, regulating them; not by putting restrictions on girls.
I can't surely see this happening in the recent coming years, it's a revolution that will happen over a long period of time.
I just hope the future of women in India to be better and more respectful.
