    Bus attack highlights India's rape epidemic



    Protests against the gang rape have spread across cities in India [EPA]

    Rarely has India, a country of more than a billion people, been so vigorously shaken out of its collective stupor than it has been in the recent days over the horrifying ordeal of a young woman on a speeding bus.

    Ever since news broke that the 23-year-old medical student was brutally gang-raped by several men at the back seat of a bus in the nation’s capital New Delhi, shock, shame and outrage have engulfed India in equal measure.

    Angry residents across Delhi and other cities have taken to the streets to protest. Stung by the outpouring over anger, even normally inert politicians and bureaucrats have joined the clamour for the harshest punishment for the culprits.

    "It’s a day of national shame," lamented Jaya Bachchan, a member of Rajya Sabha, the upper house of Indian parliament which saw members cutting across party lines sink their differences to join ranks in condemning the crime.

    "Rapists should be hanged
    ," said Neeraj Kumar, Delhi’s top police official, who said that he had never come across any other attack in his long career that matched the recent one's brutality.

    Grisly details of what happened that night on the bus are continuing to emerge, as the girl battles for her life in a hospital. Several of her vital organs have been damaged after she and her male companion were beaten up by the assailants before being thrown off the bus.

    Doctors at the Safdarjung Hospital are cautiously optimistic that the girl would eventually pull through. But it has done precious little to heal the scars that the mindless brutality has left either on the nation’s conscience or Delhi’s reputation.

    If at all, it has further bolstered Delhi’s notoriety as an extremely unsafe city where women face various forms of abuse almost on a daily basis.

    "New Delhi is no longer a safe place for women, and it's difficult to step outside of one's home after dusk," says Ayesha Ahmed, a former resident who now lives in Mumbai.

    Rising rape cases


    Figures compiled by the National Crime Records Bureau back the claim. New Delhi registered 572 rape cases last year - more than any of the other big cities in the country like Kolkata, Mumbai and Bangalore. Jagori, a women’s rights organisation, says the city leads the country in crimes against women - including rape, molestation, dowry harassment and domestic violence.

    Even an Al Jazeera documentary a few months ago uncovered the ugly truth hidden behind Delhi’s glitzy exterior: some 80 percent of women in a city of 20 million complained of having been sexually harassed. Also, an astonishing four-fifths of all women said they feared for their safety on streets, especially at night.

    But why is New Delhi so particularly unsafe?

    A host of reasons are normally cited, depending on who you ask. A top police official told the NDTV television channel that the rising figures reflected growing women empowerment. They are better educated and informed and they are more prone to register cases than ever before, he said.

    What the official, however, conveniently overlooked was poor policing and abysmal conviction rate that allows rapists often a free run.

    "The police have their priorities skewed," complains B Arun, a journalist with a prominent newspaper. Theoretically, Delhi has a policeman for every 223 people, but what’s unstated is that most of their duty hours are spent on protecting the teeming number of political leaders who crowd the nation’s capital.

    Policing streets therefore is shoddy as is investigation of crime. Compared to 44 percent in 1973, conviction rate in rape cases in had plummeted to below 26 percent by 2010.

    "Police machinery needs to be reformed; [the] public has lost confidence in police," Nirmala Samant Prabhavalkar, member of National Women’s Commission, told Al Jazeera.

    Rufina Baptista Dave, a media coordinator who lives in New Delhi, is equally critical of the authorities.

    "It is very difficult to step outside after 5-6pm. Many people come from different parts of the country and they feel that they can do anything and can get away with it," she said. "If police take strict action against culprits, it can send across the right message. Crimes are increasing here because the perpetrators go scot-free."

    Some residents also blame the culture of impunity to Delhi’s proximity to power. It is easy to have links here with political leaders - big and small - and that makes many to feel powerful themselves. Being drunk on power is a recipe for criminality, says Arun.

    Ayesha Ahmed, the former Delhi resident, concurs. "Most of the men involved in such crimes have [a] powerful background. When caught by police, they simply escape by saying, 'do you know who I am?' Till they have such 'powerful backing' it is difficult to contain crimes against women," she says.

    In the rallies and candle light vigils being held for the hapless girl across the country, there is renewed hope that India would shed its complacency finally.


    Tweets sent out by Bollywood celebrities captured the mood on the streets.


    Actor Arjun Rampal tweeted: "New set of laws and more severe punishments are required for these kind of criminals. Rapist should be publicly flogged. No more tolerance."


    Actress Juhi Chawla went a step further: "Sometimes I wish our laws were as simple & strict as tooth for tooth & an [sic] eye for an eye. Crimes like this wouldn't happen!"

    Every woman in India is likely to have experienced some sexual harassment

    You learn to not make eye contact with men, to avoid crowds, and to shield yourself with scarves and bags

    There is no simple explanation of what it is like to be a woman in India today. It depends on where you live, whether you are rich or poor, and on your caste.

    But every Indian woman has one thing in common: they have almost certainly experienced some kind of sexual harassment. If you are an Indian woman in a public space, you are forever on edge, looking out for men standing too close, wondering if that grope on a crowded bus was accidental. At an early age, you learn to not make eye contact with men, to avoid crowds, and to shield yourself with scarves and bags.

    Today, India is sunk in unprecedented national sorrow over the death of a 23-year-old woman who was gang-raped on a Delhi bus on December 16. Despite being tear-gassed and beaten, thousands of young Indians have taken to the streets to call for justice, social networks are awash with rage, and there has been much soul-searching over how and why such a crime could happen.

    I am one of the privileged women in India, but even in Bangalore where I live, which is regarded as relatively safe for women - certainly compared to Delhi - I face leering stares and comments at least weekly. It becomes so routine I hardly notice.

    I remember my parents telling me to “ignore the gropers”. Most Indian women will have received similar advice, and continue to live by it. My parents were simply being realistic; India’s record of punishing sexual harassers is abysmal.

    Now I have a 13-year-old daughter, and as I think about what advice I should give her, I realise that although life for women in India is changing rapidly in some respects, in others it is as though time stands still.

    This generation is the first to encourage women to go out to work, to travel at night, and wear Western clothes. The rape victim in Delhi was a medical student who came from a lower middle-class family, which could barely afford her education. Only a decade ago, she might never have left home. But, as traditional values are dissolving, modern values are not widely accepted. Many Indian men are outraged at the idea of women having the same freedoms they have. The Delhi rapists taunted the girl because she was with a male friend. “Only prostitutes go out with men at night,” one is reported to have said.

    The government has vowed to increase protection for women, but that is pointless in a country like India, where police are already too few, and if approached, are still likely to ignore women who complain of sexual harassment or assault. In Delhi this year, 635 cases of rape were reported, but there was only one conviction. Last week, even as India grieved for the Delhi victim, a girl committed suicide because police were pressuring her to marry her rapist. It is hard to blame Indian “culture”, because in a country this diverse, there is not one culture. But, by and large, families coddle boys and excuse bad behaviour, while girls are told to “be careful”.

    Scrutiny has turned to Bollywood films, most of which objectify women and often show the hero harassing an unwilling heroine, who eventually yields to his “charms”. But politicians also mirror the problem. In 2012, politicians blamed everything from late marriages to fast food for attacks on women. According to the Election Commission, every one of India’s leading political parties has fielded candidates accused of sexual crimes against women in the past five years, and two members of India’s parliament are facing rape charges.

    Will the tragic case of this dead woman change anything? It’s hard to see real change in a climate such as this, and generations of oppression cannot be undone easily.

    As a feminist, I balk at the idea of restricting my daughter’s movements, telling her what to wear, and especially telling her to ignore groping and leering. But at the same time, I know it will take years before all of India can accept girls like her, and I worry I am endangering her with my thinking. I am going to teach her that if she is ever harassed or molested, it will be the fault of the perpetrators, not hers. I will teach her how to be aware of her surroundings and steps to take care of herself.

    When I look at the fierce rage of young women braving teargas, or the quieter wave of women fighting for education, I see women who are encouraging change. It will take us a long time, but we will achieve it.

    Police, army rampantly use rape as weapon: Arundhati Roy

    Reacting to the terrible news of the 23-year-old girl succumbing to injuries sustained while fighting off her rapists in a moving bus in the capital, Arundhati Roy warns that it is a sign of forebodings for women of all classes. About the massive outpouring of protests across the country, Roy said, "While we are seeing some very unexceptional reaction to an event which is hardly exceptional, though it's a terrible thing to call a tragic event 'exceptional'.


    "However, the real problem is why is this crime creating such a lot of outrage is because it plays into the idea of the criminal poor, like the vegetable vendor, gym instructor or bus driver actually assaulting a middle class girl. Whereas when rape is used as a means of domination by upper castes, the army or the police it is not even punished," said the feted author.


    When asked if there was any chance that these huge protests are going to ring in some genuine change, Roy said, "I think it will lead to some new laws perhaps, an increased surveillance, but all of that will protect middle class women. But in cases of the army and the police as perpetrators, we are not looking for laws. What do you do when the police themselves burn down villages, gang-rape women. I have personally listened to so many testimonies of women to whom this has been done."


    Pointing to the contrast between the actual truth about women across the country and the image of modern India being portrayed by Bollywood and the hi-tech India, the author agreed that there are quite many a world competing here. "Feudal India has a huge history and legacy of disrespect and violence against women. Any accounts of Partition or what is done to Dalit women contains that but now there is sort of psychosis," she said.






    While stating that the army and the police routinely use rape as a weapon against people in places like Chhattisgarh, Kashmir and Manipur after gaining impunity behind laws like Armed Forces Special Powers Act, Roy said, "More dangerous is the widening gap between the rich and the poor. Earlier, at least the rich did what they with a fair amount of discretion, but now it's all out there on television for conspicuous consumption and there is an anger and psychosis building up and women at the top, middle and the bottom are going to pay the price for it."

    Delhi gang Rape and rape victims of Kashmir

    Double standards


    It took the death of a 23 Year old girl to awaken the largest democracy on earth. The explosive fallout of the incident of gang rape in Delhi that shook the entire Indian nation is yet to boil down. Kashmiris have been witness to and been protesting the rape incidents day in and out during the past twenty two years of turbulence. Even when this young victim from Delhi was breathing her last in a Singapore Hospital, 35 year old widow was kidnapped and raped in the frontier district of Poonch in Jammu and Kashmir state.

    None of the Electronic media who have their presence across the state of J&K didn't even dare to report this incident on the national network.

    People in Kashmir are the first to protest the inhuman act that took place in the Indian Capital of New Delhi. After being subjected to such torture umpteen number of times, Kashmiris can fully empathise with the traumatised.

    More than two decades of militancy in Jammu and Kashmir has left a trail of rape victims. These victims live a miserable life. Neglected and ignored by their families and society, they have to put up with government apathy too. A Kashmir-based NGO puts the number of women raped, molested and abused at over 1,000 but data compiled by international agencies like Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International put the number at around 900. When the entire Indian Nation condemns the incident in Delhi and demand the stringent punishment like death sentences to the perpetrators, no relief is in sight for this dejected lot of women in the trouble-torn state of Jammu and Kashmir.

    The state agencies are seemingly unmoved by the plight of these victims. The state home department has no specific data on the number of rapes and molestation cases that took place in the state during the last two decades. Officials of the home department, when contacted, say that media reports as to the number of rape and molestation cases hardly give the correct picture. Further, they maintain that families of allegedly raped women do not lodge complaints against the accused with the respective police stations. Thus the guilty escape from conviction. Records suggest that during the last nineteen years, the state government initiated judicial inquiry only into two cases of rape from Kashmir province, reports of which have been submitted to the government. But the action taken against the culprits is still awaited.

    According to data maintained by a media portal of the United Kingdom (UK) on reported cases of rape and molestation allegedly involving security forces, nearly 800 women were raped in various parts of Jammu and Kashmir between 1990 and 2011. The media portal maintains that it has compiled the reports from what was reported by state media. The portal also reveals that the authorities concerned hardly took any interest in documenting the plight of these silent sufferers of Jammu and Kashmir.

    However with the victims reluctant to come forward, documentation of these cases could never take place, which is making things very difficult. Failure in documenting these cases has worsened the situation. The victims, scared of social stigma, make things difficult and inconvenient and the culprits get away scot-free. The social stigma associated with rape has also made things difficult for various human rights groups and NGOs. They say that women are reluctant to come forward. They maintain that the sordid Kunan-Poshpora mass rape in Kupwara in North Kashmir in which 30 women aged between 18 and 85 years were raped on the night of February 22-23, 1991 has been repeated time and again. 22 years have passed since the incident took place; all the same, no marriage has taken place in Kunan-Poshpora for first fifteen years after the incident.

    International NGO, Medicine Sans Frontiers (MSF) working on a mental health project in this area maintains that the incident has affected the whole area psychologically. “Awaiting justice, these unfortunate mothers and daughters get a mention everywhere but no support,” says Hilal Ahmad Shah. Social scientist working with MSF say that media and human rights groups have not reported the incidents of rape and molestation seriously. They say society has every responsibility to help these victims and bring them out of this emotional morass.

    In the backdrop of the incident of gang rape in Delhi, It is high time for the state agencies to look into the matter and offer a helping hand to the rape victims of the unfortunate land.

    Photojournalist gang-raped in Mumbai, over 20 detained

    by Diana George - August 23, 2013

    A 22-year-old photojournalist is in hospital after being gang-raped by five people on Thursday evening at the dilapidated and isolated Shakti Mills compound in Lower Parel, south Mumbai.

    Her condition is now described as stable by doctors attending to her at the Jaslok hospital.

    The young woman, who works with a magazine in the city, was on assignment with a male colleague when she was assaulted at about 8 pm yesterday.

    In details chillingly similar to the December gang-rape in Delhi, the woman and her friend have described in their statements to the police how two men accosted her, beat up and tied her colleague with a belt and then dragged her into a run down, abandoned building, where three other men joined them and gang-raped the young woman.

    The attackers then fled the spot. The young woman and her colleague took an auto rickshaw to the Jaslok hospital four kilometres away and doctors called in the police.

    Twenty people have been detained and the police have released sketches of five suspects based on the statements (Have you seen them?). The woman has reportedly said that two of her attackers called each other Rupesh and Sajid. Four of the men are believed to be in their early 20s and Mumbai's police commissioner Satyapal Singh said he suspected they were drug addicts.

    Nine special teams of the Mumbai Police have been formed to investigate the case and the crime branch is carrying out a parallel probe.

    The police are investigating whether the attackers fled in a train after raping the girl. The Shakti Mills compound is very close to the Mahalakshmi station on the western line.

    Maharashtra Home Minister RR Patil visited the young woman in hospital last night. He promised that those responsible would be arrested soon.

    Mumbaikars say they are shocked that such an attack could happen in the middle of the city that they pride as safe for women. South Mumbai MP Milind Deora tweeted, "Mumbai Police must get to the bottom of yesterday's alleged rape and punish the guilty ASAP. Mumbai takes pride in being a safe city for women."

    Last December, a 23-year-old medical student was brutally gang-raped by six men in a moving bus in Delhi. She died 13 days later. The horrific assault had provoked nation-wide protests and demands for better protection for women and more stringent laws against rape.

    Outrage grows in India over bus gang rape

    December 20, 2012

    The hours-long gang-rape and near-fatal beating of a 23-year-old student on a bus in New Delhi has triggered outrage and anger across the country as Indians demand action from authorities who have long ignored persistent violence and harassment against women.

    In the streets and in parliament, calls rose for stringent and swift punishment against those attacking women, including a proposal to make rapists eligible for the death penalty. As the calls for action grew louder, two more gang-rapes were reported, including one in which the 10-year-old victim was killed.

    "I feel it is sick what is happening across the country. It is totally sick, and it needs to stop," said Smitha, a 32-year-old protester who goes by only one name.

    Thousands of demonstrators clogged the streets in front of New Delhi's police headquarters, protested near parliament and rallied outside a major university. Angry university students set up roadblocks across the city, causing massive traffic jams.

    Hundreds rallied outside the home of the city's top elected official before police dispersed them with water cannons, a move that earned further condemnation from opposition leaders, who accused the government of being insensitive.

    "We want to jolt people awake from the cozy comfort of their cars. We want people to feel the pain of what women go through every day," said Aditi Roy, a Delhi University student.

    As protests raged in cities across India, at least two girls were gang-raped, with one of them killed.

    Police on Wednesday fished out the body of a 10-year old girl from a canal in Bihar state's Saharsa district. Police superintendent Ajit Kumar Satyarthi said the girl had been gang-raped and killed and her body dumped in the canal. Police were investigating and a breakthrough was expected soon, Satyarthi said.

    Elsewhere, a 14 -year old schoolgirl was in critical condition in Banka district of Bihar after she was raped by four men, said Jyoti Kumar, the district education officer. The men have been identified, but police were yet to make any arrests, Kumar said.

    Meanwhile, the 23-year-old victim of the first rape lay in critical condition in the hospital with severe internal injuries, doctors said.

    Police said six men raped the woman and savagely beat her and her companion with iron rods on a bus driving around the city - passing through several police checkpoints - before stripping them and dumping them on the side of the road Sunday night.

    Delhi police chief Neeraj Kumar said four men have been arrested and a search was underway for the other two.

    Rapes in India remain drastically underreported. In many cases, families do not report rapes due to the stigma that follows the victim and her family. In other instances, families may decide not to report a rape out of frustration with the long delays in court and harassment at the hands of the police. Police themselves are reluctant to register cases of rape and domestic violence in order to keep down crime figures or to elicit a bribe from the victim.

    In a sign of the protesters' fury, Khushi Pattanaik, a student, said death was too easy a punishment for the rapists, they should instead be castrated and forced to suffer as their victim did.

    "It should be made public so that you see it, you feel it and you also live with it. The kind of shame and guilt," she said.


    http://www.smh.com.au/world/outrage-...220-2bnv2.html


    The New York Times reports, India may be "one of the most unsafe countries in the world for women":

    "Tens of thousands of rapes are reported each year in India, while many more go unreported because rape victims are often shunned and unable to marry. Even so, reports of rape are on the rise, up about 25 percent in the past six years."

    Swiss Woman Gang-Raped in India, 8 Scoundrels Violate Her In Front of Her Husband

    March 17, 2013


    According to Xinhua News Agency, from a Times of India report, Indian police stated on the 16th that a Swiss woman was raped and robbed by scoundrels in Madhya Pradesh of India on the night of 15th. At present, 8 suspects have already been arrested, but the police suspected that more were involved.

    And in 2003,

    after a 36-year-old Swiss female had finished watching a movie in New Delhi and just as she was getting into her car, she was kidnapped and raped by two men. The Swiss Ambassador of the time said it was “impossible to imagine”, and the Vice Prime Minister of India expressed that this incident had damaged India’s image. Yet according to Agence France Presse, to this day, not a single person has been brought to justice in this case.

    Swiss woman gang-rape case: six arrested by Madhya Pradesh Police


    by Abhinav Bhatt - March 17, 2013

    The Madhya Pradesh Police has arrested six persons in connection with the gang-rape of a 39-year-old Swiss national on Friday. They have also recovered the stolen laptop and mobile phone of the Swiss couple from the arrested persons.

    "We have arrested six accused persons who raped the Swiss woman and recovered her mobile and laptop," SM Afzal, Inspector General, Chambal Range, said.

    They were identified as Baba, Bhutha, Rampro, Gaza alias Brajesh, Vishnu Kanjar and Nitin Kanjar. While five were picked up earlier in the day, Nitin was arrested in the evening in Niwadi, about 100 km from Datia.

    All the accused have admitted to the assault that took place on Friday night, Deputy Inspector General (DIG) D K Arya said.

    The group of men had assaulted the Swiss woman after thrashing her husband with lathis (wooden sticks) and robbing the couple of their valuables. The incident had happened at a village near Datia where the woman and her husband were camping. On a bicycling trip, they had halted there while on their way from Orchha to Agra.

    Switzerland has said that it is 'profoundly shocked' by the gang-rape and has demanded that those responsible for the "tragic incident" be quickly identified and punished. (Read)

    Terming it as a "tragic incident", a foreign ministry statement in Bern said, Swiss diplomats in India are in contact with the local authorities and have "demanded that those responsible be quickly identified and brought before the courts".

    The Swiss embassy in New Dehli and the consulate in Mumbai are also providing support to the couple, whose names have not been released, Swiss Broadcasting Corporation's website reported.

    Is India no country for women?

    The comments of politicians pinning part of the blame on the woman and her husband only adds to the tragedy.

    Swiss Gang Rape Victim, Husband Partially To Blame For Attack, Indian Officials Suggest


    03/18/2013

    Officials in India suggested that a Swiss tourist and her husband are partially to blame for an alleged attack and gang rape in a remote wooded area in Madhya Pradesh last week. They said the couple did not inquire about the safety of the region.

    On Friday, a Swiss woman and her husband pitched a tent in a forest in Madhya Pradesh while on a three-month cycling excursion, according to the Associated Press. Around 9:30 p.m. a group of men attacked the couple, beat up the husband, tied him to a tree, gang raped the wife and robbed the pair, police said.

    During a press conference on Sunday, police spokesperson Avnesh Kumar Budholiya suggested the tourists are partially to blame for the assault because they chose to travel that area without speaking to local police, the Independent reports.

    “No one stops there," Budholiya said. “Why did they choose that place? They were in the wrong place at the wrong time. They would have passed a police station on the way to the area they camped. They should have stopped and asked about places to sleep.”

    Another official also appeared to place blame on the victim and her husband.

    "The rape of the Swiss national is unfortunate but foreign travelers should inform the police about their movement so they can be provided with adequate protection," said Umashankar Gupta, the Home Minister of Madhya Pradesh, according to The Times. "They often don't follow the state's rules."

    Madhya Pradesh reportedly has one of the highest rates of crimes against women in the country, a fact the Swiss tourists were unaware of, according to the Times of India.

    "They apparently lost track and took a wrong turn and decided to halt for the night by the side of a village brook little realizing that the district with 85:100 men to women ratio is not the safest place for women," a senior official from the region told the newspaper.

    Six men have been arrested in connection with the most recent reported gang rape, CNN reports. The victim, who was hospitalized after the attack, claims four of the men raped her. The other two reportedly robbed her and her husband. All six appeared in court Monday.

    The most recent attack comes just three months after a 23-year-old woman was gang raped and beaten on a public bus by five men in New Delhi. The defense lawyer for three of the accused placed some of the blame on the now-deceased victim, saying a "respected lady" does not get raped.

    Blaming a female victim of a sex crime is common in India because of a woman's role in society, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

    "This is the mentality which most Indian men are suffering from unfortunately," Ranjana Kumari, director for the New Delhi-based Centre for Social Research, told the newspaper. "That is the mindset that has been perpetrating this crime because they justify it indirectly, you asked for it so it is your responsibility."

    New outrage in India as schoolgirl raped in toilets

    January 16, 2013

    THOUSANDS protested in the holiday state of Goa after a seven-year-old girl was raped in a school toilet.

    The incident sparked fresh outrage in India following a deadly gang-rape on a bus.

    Crowds began gathering outside the Deepvihar High School in the city of Vasco da Gama on Monday night after news of the attack emerged, prompting police to arrest the headmistress on charges of neglect as well as appeal for calm.

    A massive manhunt has been launched to trace the attacker, thought to be in his early 20s, who managed to get into the premises despite security guards posted at the school gate.

    A police official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that the youngster was raped after being dragged inside the toilet situated next to the headmistress's office during a break in classes.

    Police were alerted after the girl complained of pain and was given a medical examination. The girl was taken to hospital and has since been discharged, a charity worker accompanying her told AFP. "She is fine now and recuperating at home," she said. The victim's identity has been protected in line with Indian law.

    Thousands of people surrounded the school on Monday night, shouting to demand the arrest of the headmistress and the perpetrator. Demonstrations then spread to other parts of the city, with shops and businesses closing in protest. Police were due to hold a press conference on the incident later. Goa's Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar visited the spot to try and calm the tense gathering. "We will not spare the accused and anyone involved in this crime," he told the crowds, after which the headmistress was detained. She was later arrested for alleged negligence of duty, the police official said. The case has been transferred from local police to the state crime branch, which has taken up the help of a teacher to draw a sketch of the accused, seen loitering in the school compound.

    The attack comes after the gang-rape of a student on a bus in New Delhi last month sparked nationwide protests and fuelled anger across India over the alarming incidence of sexual assault. Five men and a teenager have been charged with the rape and murder of the 23-year-old woman, who died 13 days later in a Singapore hospital from horrific injuries. Police say the suspects lured the woman and her male companion onto a private bus in the capital when the pair were returning home from the cinema. The group allegedly beat the man and raped the young woman in the back of the bus while driving around the city for about 45 minutes. They also sexually assaulted the woman with a metal bar, leaving her with severe intestinal injuries, before throwing her out of the vehicle.

    Protesters across the country have called for tougher laws to punish rapists, including the introduction of capital punishment in the most extreme cases.

    Also in Goa on Monday, a policeman was arrested after being accused of sexually abusing sex workers, who said he and two other policemen - all now suspended - had been exploiting them in return for protection of their trade.

    The girls stolen from the streets of India

    By Natalia Antelava - 9 January 2013

    The death of a student who was gang-raped on a Delhi bus has prompted anguished soul-searching about the place of women in Indian society. The widespread killing of female fetuses and infants is well-documented, but less well-known is the trafficking of girls across the country to make up for the resulting shortages.

    Rukhsana was sweeping the floor when police broke into the house.

    Wide-eyed and thin, she stood in the middle of a room clutching a broom in her hand. Police officers towered above her, shouting questions: "How old are you? "How did you get here?"

    "Fourteen," she replied softly. "I was kidnapped."

    But just as she began to say more, an older woman broke through the circle of policemen. "She is lying," she shouted. "She is 18, almost 19. I paid her parents money for her."

    As the police pushed the girl towards the exit, the woman asked them to wait. She leaped over towards the girl and reached for her earrings. "These are mine," she said, taking them out.

    A year ago, Rukhsana was a 13-year-old living with her parents and two younger siblings in a village near India's border with Bangladesh.

    "I used to love going to school and I loved playing with my little sister," she remembers.

    Her childhood ended when one day, on the way home from school, three men pushed her into a car.

    "They showed me a knife and said they would cut me into pieces if I resisted," she said.

    After a terrifying three-day journey in cars, buses and on trains, they reached a house in the northern Indian state of Haryana where Rukhsana was sold to a family of four - a mother and her three sons.

    For one year she was not allowed to go outside. She says she was humiliated, beaten and routinely raped by the eldest of the three sons - who called himself her "husband".

    "He used to say, 'I bought you, so you do as I tell you.' He and his mother beat me. I thought I would never see my family again. I cried every day," she said.

    Tens of thousands of girls disappear in India every year. They are sold into prostitution, domestic slavery and, increasingly, like Rukhsana, into marriage in the northern states of India where the sex ratio between men and women has been skewed by the illegal - but widespread - practice of aborting girl foetuses.

    The UN children's agency Unicef says it's a problem of "genocide proportions" and that 50 million women are missing in India because of female foeticide and infanticide - the killing of baby girls. The Indian government disputes this estimate, but the reality of life in Haryana is hard to argue with.

    "We don't have enough girls here," the woman who bought Rukhsana cried as she tried to convince the police to let her stay. "There are many girls from Bengal here. I paid money for her," she wailed.

    There are no official statistics on how many girls are sold into marriage in the northern states of India, but activists believe the number is on the rise, fuelled both by demand for women in the relatively wealthy north, and poverty in other parts of India.

    "Every house in northern India is feeling the pressure, in every house there are young men who cannot find women and who are frustrated," says social activist Rishi Kant, whose organization Shakti Vahini (or Power Brigade) works closely with the police to rescue victims.

    In just one area, the Sunderbans in the South 24 Parganas district of West Bengal, the BBC visited five villages all of which had missing children, mostly girls.

    Muslim Rape survivor comes forward to fight for justice alleging police prejudiced complicity

    By Mohd. Ismail Khan, TwoCircles.net, - 15 September 2013

    Hyderabad: The horror rape story which has shocked the conscience of the people of Hyderabad has now been unfolded with many harsh facts coming to light as the girl who suffered the ordeal of 17 months of rape and bondage has decided to go public with her fight against whole system, who are trying to bury her tribulation terming it a love affair gone awry.

    20 year old Seher Azad (name changed) a resident of old city was a student of 3rd year polytechnic TRR College at the outskirts of city, the canteen owner of the college, 33 year old Satya Prakash Singh a native of Bihar, had allegedly kidnapped her from the college premises and raped her for almost 17 months before the brave girl managed to escape from the clutches of rapist.

    But yesterday when the girl along with her mother and Majlis Bacho Tehreek leader Amjedullah Khan filed written complaint at Santoshnagar police station it turned out to be an open dossier reflecting hideous nature of rapist and police laxity complied with prejudice in her rape case.

    Seher who lost her father and lives with her mother and younger brother in her written complaint to police, copy of which is with TCN, stated details of getting trapped by Satya Prakash Singh, “(I) use to visit the College Canteen for lunch during college days along with my friends and had met the canteen owner Mr. Satya Prakash Singh many times at the canteen. On 3rd April 2012 when I was feeling unwell I went to the canteen to take some fruit juice, when I ask for some juice from the said owner he gave me a drink inquiring about my health. After taking juice I felt dizziness and felt unconscious. When I gained conscious I found myself in a dark room with all my clothes torn.”

    And then her ordeal of 17 months of continues as rape and bondage began, “I tried to shout for help, suddenly Mr. Satya Prakash tied my hands and beat me very badly with a belt and hands and raped me which resulted in bleeding from my private parts. As it was nearly dark he locked me up in a room and went away. Next day he came again with some food packets and asked me to eat, when I refused to eat and started shouting he beat me again and forced me to eat. After some time he raped me again. The incident of keeping me in locked and raping continued for nearly one month.”

    Owner of the flats knew about rape bondage but did nothing

    Seher Azad in her complaint made revelation that owner of the flat which was situated on Almasguda knew what was going on but instead of calling the police he asked Satya Prakash to shift her to another flat, “When the house Owner suspected his (satya parakash) activities asked him to vacate the house. The said house was a flat situated at Almasguda, Meerpet, Ranga Reddy Dist. When I was shouting loud the said house owner asked him to vacate the flat.”

    Than Satya Prakash lured Seher for changing the flat by giving false promise of taking back to her home, “One day he came early morning around 3:00 AM and promised me that he will leave me near my house and asked me to accompany him. He took me in a Tata Sumo Vehicle (Blue Color) Number AP11 G 9108. After drive of an hour he again took me forcibly to another flat at Gayatri Nagar and in spite of my protest and shouting locked me with a help of woman who I can identify by seeing.”

    In the next flat he continued to rape her, and according to her complaint, “In the said flat also he raped me daily and used to abuse me. He used to say that I am the fifth girl who he has raped and killed and thrown in a river. He claimed that his father is former Defense Employee and his brother is a Criminal Lawyer who will save him from getting into Police net.”

    Police turned the blind eye inspite of getting a big lead

    In a shocking revelation Ms. Seher Azad stated that she could have been saved given an active intervention of police, which neglected a big lead that is call from the rapist mobile to her family describing her situation, “It was around May 2012 after taking too much of alcohol he raped me and slept. As my hands were open I took his phone and called my mother and told the incident of me being tortured. My brother who had given a complaint of missing person in Police Santosh Nagar Crime No: 76/2012 went and informed the Police about the call.”

    The ordeal of Seher could have ended on the same day when her brother approached the police to inform about the call, but sadly it didn’t. Mr. Amjedullah Khan who accompanied Seher Mubeen to Santosh Nagar police station told TCN that Inspector informed him that after tracking the mobile number they found it to be from a women from Mahbubnagar district, when they interrogated the women they found that women used to run a canteen business with Satya Prakash singh in the past and allotted her SIM to him.

    Getting crucial lead and big circumstantial evidence police called Satya Prakash to station and interrogated him and according to Mr. Amjedullah Khan he was kept in two days custody, but inspector told them that Satya Prakash Singh confessed it to be his mobile number but claimed it was lost few months back and refused any knowledge about the missing girl, so police simply let him off.

    Mr. Amjedullah Khan alleged that police let off Satya Prakash Singh even after such a crucial lead because of the intervention of senior TDP politician son in whose college Satya Prakash was running the canteen.

    Ms. Seher’s complaint to the police corroborate with the allegation of Mr. Khan, when Satya Prakash was let off by the police first thing he did was to vent all his anger on girl revealing his strong political connections, “He didn’t came to the room for nearly for 5 days. The said lady who was kept to check me used to give me food and water from the window. I was kept locked. Suddenly on 6th Day Satya Prakash Singh came in an drunken position and bet me very badly abused me and my mother and said why did I call from his mobile phone through which the police started suspecting him. After beating me badly he raped me again and said that with the intervention from the college owner Mr. Teegala Krishna Reddy (former Mayor) & TDP Leader and his Son (Owner of TRR College) he was set free by the Santosh Nagar police.”

    Family of rapist complicit in the crime

    Ms. Seher Azad, in her complaint revealed that family of Satya Prakash who lives in Bihar was aware and complicit in the crime even visited her in her virtual jail, “One day he came along with some of his family members including his father, wife and his brother and asked me to meet them. Before meeting them he forced me to have a Tilak on my head. He presented me to the family member as Vanita and told them as he is childless (from his previous) marriage, he wanted to marry me. I started crying in front of his father Bhishmukh Prakash Singh (Rt. Defense Employee), Brother Mr. Jayparakash Singh (Advocate) and his wife (who then left the room after listening to the proposal of second marriage). I told them that I am a Muslim Girl and the Satya Prakash has kidnapped me and is raping me since last 4 months. After listening to me they started laughing and said that all the family supports Satya Prakash. Seeing me crying and shouting his father left the room keeping me with his Advocate brother. His Advocate brother than beaten me up with a slipper and he also tried to rape me. By their beating I felt unconscious. His brother threatened me that they will kill my brother and my mother if they do not withdraw their complaint from Santosh Nagar police station.”

    Got pregnant than forced to abort

    The most appalling part of her complaint Ms. Seher stated that due to the continues forced sex she got pregnant and was illegally made to abort, but even after this the humiliation continued, “After some months he shifted me to a new location (3rd location) where I fell ill and was vomiting heavily. He brought some lady to check me and the lady said that I have got pregnant. I started crying and asked him to leave me. Promising that he will leave me after abortion he took me to a Nursing home and asked a lady Doctor for abortion. I protested with the said Lady Doctor and the staff for carrying the abortion. The said lady Doctor did an abortion on me. I was bleeding heavily. He (again) took me to the flat. He used to harass me to satisfy him inspite of me getting aborted. He forced me to do oral sex and also forced to drink alcohol.”

    Some Police officers took bribe and participated in her humiliation

    Some police officers according to Ms. Seher also abetted Satya Prakash in his heinous crimes, she wrote in her complaint, “On one day while I was crying and shouting some of the neighbors called police and informed about me. After some time three police men came and I told everything that I am being kept illegally and being raped since many months. The Police took Satya Prakash along with him and after some hours they came back. I saw all the Police men and Satya Prakash in a drunken position. All the Police men entered and started passing comments and asked Satya Prakash to have a good rape and they left. The Police men while going away took some money from Satya Prakash. Before going the said three Police men touched my private parts and passed bad comments against me.”

    The escape

    Detailing her escape from the clutches of Satya Prakash she stated, “On 4th Sep 2013 around 1:00 PM as usual he came to the flat fully drunk with some food packets. After taking lunch he raped me again and felt slept. As the door was kept open I ran from his clutches and reached my home at 4:30 PM.”

    The present position of her case

    After the new facts been revealed by her, Santosh Nagar police amended the earlier missing complaint and changed it to rape case by inserting stern sections of IPC like 366 (kidnapping, abducting or inducing a woman to compel her for marriage), 376 (rape), 342 (wrongful confinement) and 506 (criminal intimidation).

    Fearing communal fall out Satya Prakash Singh was arrested immediately by the police and is currently lodged in Chanchalguda jail.

    But Mr. Amjedullah Khan alleged that police is not serious to provide justice to Seher Azad and to take this case to a logical conclusion, “It has been more than a week that girl is back at her home but police till now didn’t record her statement. After protest they asked her to visit them again on Monday where a women constable will be recording her statement. Till now no medical checkup has been done on the girl, police is still maintaining that she eloped with that man who raped her for 17 months. Instead of counseling the rape victim, police officers are asking her perverse questions raising fingures on her modesty.”

    Mr. Amjedullah Khan even alleged that local police is intimidating girl’s family to withdraw her complaint. Mr. Khan said he along with girl’s family is planning to file another complaint with Commissioner of Police, Minorities commission or Human rights commission as they are not expecting any justice from the local police. He warned that issue is carrying lot of media attention, now if any untoward tensions arises local police should be held responsible for their inaction.

    Now with her future and life being ruined, Ms. Seher Azad is expecting at least one thing from society, that is justice. In her complaint she requested to the police to act against every individual who was complicit with Satya Prakash and abetted him the crime, “I request you to take necessary action against Mr. Satya Prakash, his father, his brother, his wife, the three flat owners where I was kept Illegal, tortured and raped continuously. The owner of TRR College who helped Mr. Satya Prakash when Santosh Nagar Police caught him. The Nursing Home officials and the lady Doctor where the abortion was done, and the three Policemen who also tried to molest me (in the third flat).”

    (TCN appeal: Although while filing complaint to demand justice rape survivor revealed her real name, but to maintain her anonymity TCN has used a pseudo name TCN also condemns the insensitivity of social media users who are using her name in their posts purportedly to demand justice, trying to make it viral by using hash-tag.)

    May Allah give the girl justice and peace and punish all culprits involved severily in this life and the Hereafter. Ameen!

    Indian woman says police gang-raped her inside station


    Last updated: Thursday, June 12, 2014

    LUCKNOW, India — An Indian woman said Thursday she was gang-raped by four officers at a police station, the latest in a string of shocking sex attacks in the troubled state of Uttar Pradesh.

    The woman said she had gone to the station overnight on Monday in the state's Hamirpur district to seek her husband's release when she was attacked.

    "At 11:30pm when there was no one in the room the sub-inspector took me to his room and raped me inside the police station," the woman told CNN-IBN.

    The woman filed a complaint with a senior officer on Wednesday over the attack, which allegedly occurred when she refused to pay a bribe to secure the release of her husband.

    "The procedure will be followed, the victim has filed a complaint and the guilty will be arrested soon," Virendra Kumar Shekhar, a police official from Hamirpur, said.

    Sub-inspector Balbir Singh said a criminal case had been lodged against four officers from the station.

    The case is the latest in a string of horrific rapes and murders in Uttar Pradesh, India's most populous state, where its chief minister Akhilesh Yadav is under growing political pressure over his handling of law and order.

    Late last month, two girls, aged 12 and 14, were gang-raped and lynched in their village. They were attacked after going into a field to relieve themselves at night because they did not have a toilet at home.

    Their families refused to cut the bodies down from the tree for hours in protest, saying police had failed to take action against the attackers because the girls were from a low caste.

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday urged all politicians to work together to protect women, in his first comments on the issue since the hanging of the girls sparked public outrage.

    Modi warned politicians against "politicising rape", saying they were "playing with the dignity of women" in his first speech to parliament since sweeping to power at last month's national elections.

    India brought in tougher laws last year against sexual offenders after the fatal gang-rape of a student in New Delhi in December 2012, but they have failed to stem the tide of violence against women.

    Also on Wednesday, a 45-year-old woman was found hanging from a tree in Uttar Pradesh, with her family saying she had been raped and murdered.

    A police officer said they were questioning five men over the incident, which occurred several kilometres from her home in Bahraich district.

    "They (her husband and son) have alleged that the woman, before being strung up from the tree, was raped and murdered by these men," district superintendent Happy Guptan told AFP

    "If India finds a man like Umar ibn Khatab all the problems will be solved." - Gandhi


    Teen Sisters Gang-Raped, Hanged From Mango Tree In India; Cops Suspected

    By BISWAJEET BANERJEE - 05/30/2014

    Two teenage sisters in rural India were raped and killed by attackers who hung their bodies from a mango tree, which became the scene of a silent protest by villagers angry about alleged police inaction in the case. Two of the four men arrested so far are police officers.

    Villagers found the girls' bodies hanging from the tree early Wednesday, hours after they disappeared from fields near their home in Katra village in Uttar Pradesh state, police Superintendent Atul Saxena said. The girls, who were 14 and 15, had gone into the fields because there was no toilet in their home.

    Hundreds of angry villagers stayed next to the tree throughout Wednesday, silently protesting the police response. Indian TV footage showed the villagers sitting under the girls' bodies as they swung in the wind, and preventing authorities from taking them down until the suspects were arrested.

    Police arrested two police officers and two men from the village later Wednesday and were searching for three more suspects.

    Autopsies confirmed the girls had been raped and strangled before being hung, Saxena said.

    The villagers accused the chief of the local police station of ignoring a report by the girls' father Tuesday night that the girls were missing. The station chief in Katra, 180 miles (300 kilometers) southwest of the state capital, Lucknow, has since been suspended.

    The family belongs to the Dalit community, also called "untouchables" and considered the lowest rung in India's age-old caste system.

    Records show a rape is committed every 22 minutes in India, a nation of 1.2 billion people. Activists say that number is low because of an entrenched culture of tolerance for sexual violence, which leads many cases to go unreported. Women are often pressed by family or police to stay quiet about sexual assault, and those who do report it are often subjected to public ridicule or social stigma.

    India tightened its anti-rape laws last year, making gang rape punishable by the death penalty, even when the victim survives. The new laws came after the fatal gang rape of a 23-year-old woman on a bus in New Delhi that triggered nationwide protests.

    Health workers, police and women's rights activists say women and girls face the risk of rape and harassment when they go out into fields or bushes due to the lack of toilets in their homes.

    More than a half billion Indians lack access to toilets. A recent study said around 30 percent of women from poor families faced violent sexual assaults every year because they did not have access to a safe toilet.

    Last month, the head of Uttar Pradesh state's governing party, the regionally prominent Samajwadi Party, told an election rally that the party was opposed to the law calling for gang rapists to be executed.

    "Boys will be boys," Mulayam Singh Yadav said. "They make mistakes."

    U.S., U.N. wade into rape row

    Suhasini Haidar - June 5, 2014

    The United States and the United Nations have been sharp in their condemnation of the rape and hanging of two girls in Badaun district of Uttar Pradesh. While the U.S. State Department said it was “horrified” by the crimes, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon criticised the statements of Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh in an oblique reference, saying: “We say no to the dismissive, destructive attitude of ‘boys will be boys.’”

    Mr. Ban, who made his comments in New York at the launch of a video campaign against sexual violence, said he “was especially appalled by the brutal rape and gruesome murder of two teenaged women in India.”

    The U.N. has been especially critical of India in the wake of the Delhi gang rape of 2012 and sent its Special Rapporteur on violence against women, Rashida Manjoo, to prepare a report for the U.N. Human Rights Council in April 2014 that was very critical of India’s “systemic failures” in curbing sexual violence.

    The comments from the U.S. in response to a question, coming ahead of the visit of the Assistant Secretary of State Nisha Biswal, are seen as part of the increasing attention in the U.S. to crimes against women. “The statement puts the NDA government on notice,” says former Ambassador to the U.S. Lalit Mansingh, “and an international spotlight on how they handle such incidents given [Prime Minister] Mr. [Narendra] Modi’s own campaign promises on the safety of women.”

    Ms. Biswal arrives on Friday to meet her counterpart in the Ministry, but is not expected to meet more senior officials as her predecessors have in the past, given the persisting strain in ties between India and the U.S.

    Indian woman strangled to death had acid poured on her face to prevent her being identified

    Attack took place in Uttar Pradesh, 60 miles from where two teenage girls were gang raped and hanged from a mango tree

    Andrew Buncombe - 02 June 2014

    Police in north India are trying to ascertain the identity of a young woman who was strangled to death and had acid poured on her face. The attack took place about 60 miles from the village where two girls were last week gang-raped and hanged from a tree.

    Officers said the body of the woman, believed to be aged 22, was discovered on Saturday in a field in the village of Aithpura, close to the city of Bareilly.

    Initial reports said the woman had been raped, made to drink acid and strangled. Her face had later been mutilated with acid and petrol, apparently in an attempt to hide her identity.

    But the senior investigating officer, Supt Ravindra Gaur, told The Independent that while the woman had been murdered and her face destroyed by acid, post-mortem examination results showed she had not been raped.

    “We are still trying to identify the body,” he said. “[We believe] the acid was poured on her to conceal her identity.”

    News of the latest incident of lethal violence against women comes as India is still reeling from the rape and murder last week of two cousins, who were seized and assaulted after they went into the fields to relieve themselves. The girls, believed to be aged between 12-14, were then hanged from a mango tree on the edge of the village using their own scarves.

    Relatives said when the girls went missing, police refused to investigate the case and abused them over their low-caste status. The family’s caste is at the very bottom of the Hindu social structure, whereas the three alleged attackers and the police officers on duty belong to the yadav caste, which is the “dominant” caste in the area.

    Since the discovery of the girls’ bodies last Wednesday morning, a number of politicians have made their way to the simple shack occupied by the girls’ extended family. The most recent was Ram Vilas Paswan, a government minister who is also from a low caste.

    He criticized the state government of Uttar Pradesh (UP) for failing to do more to protect the girls. “If you are not being able to provide right to life, then what kind of government this is,” he asked, according to reports in the Indian media.

    The state government in UP is run by the the Samajwadi Party, which draws much of its support from the yadav caste. During India’s recent election campaign, the head of the party, Mulayam Singh Yadav, sparked controversy by saying rapists should not receive the death penalty because “boys will be boys”.

    On Monday, protesters from the Bharatiya Janata Party, which runs India’s federal government, protested outside the headquarters of the UP state administration in Lucknow. Police used water cannon to disperse them.

    Police said there was a suggestion that the woman discovered on Saturday near Bareilly may have come from the state of Uttarakhand and a team of detectives had been dispatched there to look into her background.

    10-Year-Old Girl In India Raped In Revenge After Her Father Gets Into A Fight With A Neighbor

    By Lisa Fogarty, Fri, July 11, 2014



    A 10-year-old girl was raped in India on Tuesday night as punishment after her father reportedly assaulted a neighbor who broke into his house, reports Daily Mail.

    The rape was reportedly ordered by the village chief of a small community in eastern India’s Bokaro district after the 25-year-old neighbor complained to elders that the young girl’s father had beaten him up when he broke into his home drunk at around midnight. The elders reportedly decided that the girl’s father was “violent” and that his actions deserved a serious consequence.

    In front of all of the village’s residents, and despite her mother’s protests, the 10-year-old was dragged out of her home by the man who had tried to molest her mother and taken to a nearby forest, where he raped her, reports NDTV.

    The girl’s mother found her daughter one hour later lying in blood in the bushes, according to police. Residents of the village were reportedly too scared to step in, fearing they, too, would be punished.

    A medical examination confirmed the young girl was raped, but the details of why the man was allowed to do such a horrific thing differ with each news account. The Hindustan Times claims the girl was 14 and that this incident took place on Monday night. NDTV reports that the revenge rape was ordered because the girl’s older brother tried to assault the 25-year-old man’s sister.

    The village headman has reportedly been arrested, as well as the victim’s brother and the alleged rapist.

    Indian Girl Cut Off Uncle’s Penis After He Tried To Rape Her For A Second Time

    Alexia LaFata - Aug 5, 2014

    An Indian teenage girl thought to be either 17 or 18 got the ultimate revenge after her uncle tried to rape her for a second time: She chopped his penis off.

    After the unnamed girl became sick, her mother asked her sister’s husband, Mahendra Mehta, to cure her.

    Mehta, known in the community as a tantrik (a person who practices meditation and ancient rituals) believed his niece was influenced by a supernatural power.

    So, he gagged and raped her in his house to rid her of the spirits. This was the first time rape occurred.

    Because the girl didn’t tell anyone about the incident and Mehta is a trusted member of the family, nobody suspected a thing.

    The second time the girl went to her uncle’s house, she was prepared with a cell phone and a knife.

    This time, she recorded a conversation between them, sliced off his penis and managed to escape.

    She then filed a police complaint, and the suspect is still at large. Without a penis.

    Indian Hindu leader spits venom against Muslims

    22 April 2014

    Pravin Togadia, controversial leader of India’s pro Hindutva group Vishwa Hindu Parishad, has triggered a new controversy by delivering an anti-Muslim speech in Bhavnagar, Gujarat.

    Protesting outside the house of a Muslim businessman, Togadia gave the occupant 48 hours to vacate his house, failing which he asked his followers to take forcible possession of his property and fight a legal battle later that will go on for years.

    To prevent Muslims from buying properties he wanted the government to bring in Disturbed Areas Act to Bhavnagar, which would prevent inter-community sale of immovable property.

    The VHP leader also threatened Muslims with violence and asked his followers to “go with stones, tires and tomatoes” and that there was nothing to fear.

    The Hindu nationalist Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh backed the under fire leader by denying that Togadia has made those hate comments.

    The Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party lashed out at Togadia.

    Congress leader Rashid Alvi said: “I think Praveen Togadia should be treated. He should be hospitalized. In this country, if Hindus stay in a Hindu area and Muslims in a Muslim area, and they are not allowed to buy property in each others’ areas, it is against the Constitution.”

    AAP called it “an extremely shocking and a shameful act”.

    The Election Commission has sought the recording of the speech.

    Top 10 Countries With Highest Rape Crime

    Here is the list of top 10 countries with highest rape crime. You would be amazed to read that the most developed countries like U.S., Sweden, France, Canada, UK and Germany are the most immersed ones in this crime.

    10. Ethiopia

    Ethiopia is estimated to have one of the highest rates of violence against women in the world. A report by the UN found that nearly 60% of Ethiopian women were subjected to sexual violence. Rape is a very serious problem in Ethiopia. The country is infamous for the practice of marriage by abduction, with the prevalence of this practice in Ethiopia being one of the highest in the world. In many parts of Ethiopia, it is common for a man, working in co-ordination with his friends, to kidnap a girl or woman, sometimes using a horse to ease the escape. The abductor will then hide his intended bride and rape her until she becomes pregnant. Girls as young as eleven years old are reported to have been kidnapped for the purpose of marriage. Also the Ethiopian military has been accused of committing systematic rapes against civilians.

    9. Sri Lanka

    Sri Lanka’s security forces are still raping and torturing suspects. There have been recent allegations that rape and torture by the Sri Lankan security forces have continued four years after the civil war ended. The UN Multi-country Study on Men and Violence found that 14.5% of the sample of Sri Lankan men had perpetrated rape at some point in their lives. 4.9% had raped in the past year. 2.7% had raped another man. 1.6% had took part in a gang rape. 96.5% of the men who had raped experienced no legal consequences. 65.8% didn’t feel worried or guilty afterwards. 64.9% of rapists had raped more than once, and 11.1% had raped four or more girls or women.

    8. Canada

    It is an Amercing continent and the total reported cases of rape in this country are 2,516,918. These are only six percent of the total rape cases. It is reported that over one in three women had experienced a sexual assault and that only 6% of sexual assaults were reported to the police. According to Justice Institute of British Columbia, one out of every 17 women is raped, 62% of rape victims were physically injured, 9% were beaten or disfigured.

    7. France

    Rape was not a crime in France until 1980. Laws reinforcing women’s rights and safety are relatively recent in France. The law making rape a crime dates back only to 1980. Earlier decrees were based on 19th century moral codes. A law on sexual-harassment was approved in 1992 and one on moral harassment was passed in 2002. The last bill to fight violence against women was passed last year. Government studies show there are 75,000 rapes a year in the country. Only about 10 percent of the victims filed complaints. France is at the 7th position with the total reported crime of 3,771,850.


    6. Germany

    An estimate of 240,000 women and girls has died up till now in Germany because of this crime. Germany is on the number six in the highest rape crime with the figures of 6,507,394 in this year which is really a big figure. German Catholics have allowed the morning-after pills for the victims. The country moving forward in technology is actually moving really backward in humanity.

    5. United Kingdom

    Many people wish to live or even visit UK as it is one of the most developed countries. But they surely must not be aware that this country is also involved badly in the crime of rape. In January 2013, the Ministry of Justice (MoJ), Office for National Statistics (ONS) and Home Office released its first ever joint Official Statistics bulletin on sexual violence, entitled An Overview of Sexual Offending in England and Wales. According to report: Approximately 85,000 women are raped on average in England and Wales every year. Over 400,000 women are sexually assaulted each year. One in 5 women (aged 16 – 59) has experienced some form of sexual violence since the age of 16.

    4. India

    India is the place where sexual assault is rapidly increasing. Rape in India is one of India’s most common crimes against women. According to the National Crime Records Bureau 24,923 rape cases were reported across India in 2012, but experts agree that the number of unreported cases of sexual assault brings the total much higher. Out of these, 24,470 were committed by parents/family, relatives, neighbors and other known persons implying that , men known to the victim committed 98 per cent of reported rapes. The latest estimates suggest that a new case of rape is reported every 22 minutes in India.

    3. Sweden

    Sweden has the highest incidence of reported rapes in Europe and one of the highest in the world. One amongst every four women comes out to be the victim of rape in Sweden. By 2010, The Swedish police recorded the highest number of offences – about 63 per 100,000 inhabitants. The country has third-highest rape crime in the world. In 2009 there were 15,700 reported sexual offenses in Sweden, a rise of 8% compared to 2008, of which 5,940 were rape and sexual harassment (including exhibitionism) accounted for 7,590 reports. In April 2009, it was reported that sex crimes had increased by 58% over the previous ten years. According to a 2009 European Union study, Sweden has one of the highest rates of reported rape in Europe. (source)

    2. South Africa

    The country has one of the highest rates of rape in the world, with some 65,000 rapes and other sexual assaults reported for the year 2012. The incidence of rape has led to the country being referred to as the “rape capital of the world”. One in three of the 4,000 women questioned by the Community of Information, Empowerment and Transparency said they had been raped in the past year. More than 25 per cent of South African men questioned in a survey published by the Medical Research Council (MRC) admitted to rape; of those, nearly half said they had raped more than one person. Three out of four of those who had admitted rape indicated that they had attacked for the first time during their teens. South Africa has amongst the highest incidences of child and baby rape in the world. If the rapist is convicted, his prison time would be around 2 years.

    1. United States

    The super power of the world is at the first position in the race of rapes. Males are majorly the rapist holding a proportion of 99%. Out of all the victims, 91% are females while 9% are males. The U.S Bureau of Justice Statistics states that 91% of rape victims are female and 9% are male, and nearly 99% of rapists are male. According to the National Violence Against Women Survey, 1 in 6 U.S. women and 1 in 33 U.S. men has experienced an attempted or completed rape in their lifetime. More than a quarter of college-age women report having experienced a rape or rape attempt since age 14. Out of all, only 16% of the total cases are reported. Outdoor rape is not common in USA rather most of the rape cases takes place inside homes.

    Japanese Woman 'Kidnapped By Indian Gang And Raped For Weeks'

    Police arrested three Indians after the brutal gang raping of a 22-year-old Japanese research scholar near a Buddhist pilgrimage centre in eastern India.


    Police were looking for two more suspects who also allegedly kept the Japanese woman as a hostage for nearly three weeks in a village near Bodh Gaya, Bihar state, police officer Akhilesh Singh said.


    She managed to escape from their captivity on Boxing Day and reached Calcutta, where she was based and filed a police complaint.

    She has been studying life in rural India for some time, Singh said.


    A Calcutta-based guide is believed had taken the Japanese woman to Bodh Gaya, where there is a Buddhist pilgrimage centre in the area where Gautam Buddha is said to have obtained enlightenment under a tree.


    She was held there by gang members for several weeks and repeatedly raped, police officer Singh said.


    Pallav Kanti Ghosh, a Calcutta police commissioner, told BBC Hindi that the woman had been approached by two brothers as she checked into a hotel at the city, with one of the men "speaking very fluent Japanese".


    According to Ghosh, the woman was raped after she was first taken to a beach resort in West Bengal state, and robbed. Later she was taken to Bodh Gaya, and "handed over to other gang members," Mr Ghosh said.


    Two of the arrests were made from the area on Friday and one earlier this week in Calcutta, police said.


    India has a long history of tolerance of sexual violence. But a series of high-profile rape cases have triggered a strong public outrage in recent years, leading to tough anti-rape laws.


    India has doubled prison terms for rapists to 20 years and criminalised voyeurism, stalking and the trafficking of women.


    The law also makes it a crime for officers to refuse to open cases when complaints are made. [because they used to outright refuse]

    Terror threats by Hindus pretending to be Muslims

    Jan 12, 2015

    1 - RSS-affiliated miscreants were caught red-handed hoisting Pakistani flag to foment communal tension.

    2 - Last month in a poster that surfaced in Kolkata one “Jamaat ul Mujahideen Bangladesh” terrorist threatened to bomb West Bengal. Days later, police traced the man behind the terror threat. It was Amiya Sarkar- a Hindu.

    3 - Earlier this month in Muzaffarnagar police arrested Hindu VHP worker Deshraj Singh for placing loaves of cow meat in front of at least three Hindu temples.

    4 - Recently 16 ministers in Rajasthan got threat mails in which an “Indian Mujahideen (IM) terrorist” said that his group would launch series of terror attacks in the state. Police lodged an FIR against unknown IM terrorist group. Then, last week Rajasthan ATS tracked down a Hindu, Sushil Chaudhary, who reportedly had sent those threat mails posing as a Muslim IM terrorist.

    5 - This week another Hindu boy was held by Bangalore police for posting threatening tweets to bomb the city. He adopted a fake Muslim identity of Abul Khan to create his twitter page.

    Interestingly, none of these 5 Hindus have been booked for serious offences. While releasing them, after perhaps only some rounds of rebukes, the police and media made every effort to convince us that the men were stressed, depressed or mentally unsound.

    Hindu Tutor Raped 14-yr boy while her brothers Videotaped


    Hindu girl had incestuous relationship with her two brothers with whose help she repeatedly raped her student

    By Manjeet Sehgal - 12 January 2015


    The Ludhiana police have arrested a woman tutor and her two brothers on the charge of sexually exploiting a minor boy and filming the rapes.

    The trio were trying to flee to New Delhi and were at the Ludhiana bus terminus when the police arrested them on Sunday.

    They were produced in the court, which remanded them in police custody for two days. Accused Radha, 33, Raghav, 28, and Madhav, 24, have been absconding since October 2014.

    The police on October 19 had booked Radha and her brothers under sections 294 of IPC (obscene acts or words in public), 506 (criminal intimidation), 34 (acts done in furtherance of common intention) and sections 3, 4, 5 (L), 14, 15, 16 and 17 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012.

    The complainant’s father had told police that he was a tenant of Radha, who also tutored his 14-year-old son.

    One day the boy confided in his father about the entire episode after developing severe stomach ache.

    The boy also gave his father the pen-drive, which had explicit video content showing forced intercourse between him and the woman tutor.

    The accused woman tutor, according to the boy, allegedly raped him repeatedly for over a year till October 2014.

    The police said the accused raped him at knife-point whenever he refused to succumb to her demands.

    “She would force him to consume liquor and threatened him with dire consequences whenever he refused her demand. She also shot sexually explicit videos with the help of her brothers.

    "Radha had threatened him that she would implicate me in a rape case if he revealed the truth to anybody,” the minor boy’s father alleged in his complaint to the police.

    However, the police made no moves against the accused in the matter. They swung into action only after local NGO Bachpan informed the National Child Rights Commission about the police inaction.

    The police were forced to book the women and her brothers on October 19.

    They raided Radha’s house and seized threat letters written to the boy, ordering him not to divulge the truth to anybody.

    The police also recovered a laptop that contained sexually explicit video content. Police claim the video footage showed the sexual exploitation of the boy and the woman indulging in incest with her brothers.

    The police also seized sedatives, sex toys and a knife from the accused.

    Indian Hindu leader calls for idols to be placed in Masjids and churches

    By Jumadal Ukhra - 16 April 2015


    In a shocking incident, a Hindu Mahasabha leader on Saturday made a statement saying Muslims and Christians in the country should be sterilized in order to check their increasing population.

    According to a report by India Today, Sadhvi Deva Thakur, vice president of All India Hindu Mahasabha stirred up a controversy after she said that the growing population of Christians and Muslims posed a threat to Hindus.

    “The population of Muslims and Christians is growing day by day. To rein in this, Centre will have to impose emergency, and Muslims and Christians will have to be forced to undergo sterilisation so that they can’t increase their numbers,” Thakur said.

    This is not the first time she has made a controversial statement. Recently, she had encouraged Hindus to have more children so that the Hindu population could outgrow other religious populations of the world.

    According to the report, she made another controversial remark when she said that idols of Hindu gods and goddesses should be placed in mosques and churches.

    The news comes in the wake of Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut’s controversial statement asking the voting rights of Muslims to be revoked for some years to ensure the community is not used for vote bank politics.

    “If Muslims are only being used this way to play politics, then they can never develop. Muslims will have no future till they are used to play vote bank politics and thus Balasaheb had demanded that the voting rights of Muslims should be taken away. What he said is right,” Raut wrote in an article in the latest issue of the Shiv Sena’s mouthpiece Saamna.

    Balasaheb Thackeray was the founder of Shiv Sena.

    “Balasaheb had said 15 years ago that if the voting rights of Muslims are taken away for a few years, then the vote bank politics will stop,” Raut reiterated in the article.

    comments:

    The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) told Muslims to marry young and have a lot of children, yet Muslims are doing the opposite in disobedience to the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). The kuffar understand this and so they are doing everything (free money, cars, houses, etc.) to encourage their people to have more children while they are teaching the Muslims to have only two children and to delay the marriage in favor of careers.
