In 2017 India recorded 11 barbaric rapes that occurred across the Country and as we enter 2018 a horrific rape of a 18 month old baby girl by her babysitter comes to light. The girl’s parents left for work leaving the child in the care of a relative the man who is allegedly her cousin sexually assaulted her.When the girl’s mother returned in the evening, she found the child crying and bleeding from the private parts. She took the child to a nearby hospital where it was found that she had been sexually assaulted the infant’s internal organs were damaged during the assault and she had to undergo a three-hour operation.The cries of this little baby girl can be heard throughout the NICU .Although she is stable now the ordeal that this little girl has gone through for no fault of hers cannot go unpunished.
In the past 5 years the number of rapes against women and children have become alarmingly high in India. Where women and children are not protected and the sense of safety is missing and seems to be a distant cry. The protests and cries of the public fall on deafened ears , can the government not hear the publics cries for a safer India?
As stated by Bikram Vohra on firstpost,merely arresting the culprit in this case is scarcely a deterrent and does not serve the purpose. The man is still afforded confidentiality; there is no name, no photograph, no blow-by-blow account of what will be done with him. Nobody knows what he looks like, this ghoul, and nobody can confirm if he will one day be let loose on the public yet again, so he can perform another ghastly rape on another innocent child or women.
In In 2016, police received nearly 39,000 rape complaints, up 12.4 per cent from the previous year.In the same year, 19,765 cases of child rape were registered in India, an increase of 82 per cent from the year before, according to the National Crime Records Bureau.
The Criminal Law (Amendment) Act, 2013 Bill incorporates suggestions of the Justice JS Verma Committee, formed after the brutal Delhi gang-rape of Dec 16 2012, to make anti-rape laws stronger."It provides for rigorous imprisonment for a minimum of 20 years, extendable to life imprisonment, to those convicted for the offence of gang-rape".
These men do not deserve to live out their lives even if it's in prison,after creating such hideous and heinous crimes on children and women .Help us make India safer by serving the death penalty to such men and showing the public that such crimes will not be entertained. Apeal to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take a stand and incorporate change where it matters by protecting women and children of India .
