Demanding stringent laws to protect Women and bring their violators to instant justice
As a Daughter of India (sometimes it's hard to take that as a compliment), I urge everyone of you to look into Nancy Jha's case and sign this petition. Nancy, a 12 year innocent girl from Bihar was brutally killed by her own uncles in an acid attack. The police won't budge initially and had been suspended on grounds of negligence. An SIT team had to be set up to probe into the case. Though the accused turned themselves in to the police hoping for lesser punishment, the manner in which they killed the innocent and the reasons behind are spine chilling and deserve no forgiveness.
It's unfortunate how India has to mourn a daughter lost every day. To know what happened with Nancy, let me paint a picture for you. She was gang raped (which is still to be made official), her wrists and throat were slit and acid was poured into her body which led to her fateful death. Her body was found in an unspeakable condition just a mile away from her home, leaving her family devastated.
And this happens not a week after another infant was thrown out of a moving vehicle and killed by some rapists, and her 19 year old mother raped to rags. No one should ever go through this again!
Today it's them, tomorrow it can be a dear one, but India stands on the spirit of treating everyone with utmost respect.
Rape and murder is not the culture of India. We do not tolerate these crimes here. So I want you to come forward and sign this petition, so our PM, Narendra Modi can resolve this issue by escalating it and making stricter laws to punish the culprits. It's the only way to minimize and prevent future crimes at this level.

Greetings Narendra Modi ji,
I'm an Indian girl who just couldn't take the rape culture getting out of bounds, anymore. And I'm sorry that it even exists in a country enchanted by the touch of divine personalities through epochs. I understand you are well aware of the issue and have already made plans to put this to rest once and for all. But it's my responsibility to bring to your notice how outraged we, as a society are, to witness spine chilling rapes at alarming levels everyday, and not able to do anything about it. The supreme power to bring about any change rests with the government and sadly there has been no stable law to accomplish this.
We urge you to take this petition into consideration and pass stringent laws to protect women and girls of all ages and bring their violators to instant justice, once proven guilty. And we are so fed up of the lax attitude of police when it comes to such sensitive issues. Why, aren't they getting paid enough or are they too drunk with power? We need answers and actions!
We cannot tolerate these issues being pushed around for ages, and after 70 years of achieving independence we still victimize women and carry out heinous atrocities against them! We cannot stress this enough, GIRLS and WOMEN DON'T FEEL SAFE IN INDIA ANYMORE! They don't deserve this fate!
As an eminent personality, and son of a proud mother, you of all should understand this better. We look up to you in many aspects. We have faith in you. All we need is a positive outcome of this sentiment.
Once, women were safer, but didn't have the chance to contribute their intellect and services to the society, but today girls and women are excelling in various fields and taking the nation’s name to great heights. But unfortunately, they are not safe, not at home, not outside and NOT ANYWHERE! This is nothing in accordance with what India showcases as its culture!
So, I plead you, behalf of all the people who has signed this petition, and also who want to sign it and bring change, but cannot as they don't use social media, to accelerate the system towards achieving a ‘Suraksh Bharat’!
Lets' make India great again, and this cannot be achieved when the creators of Mother India, ‘the Mothers’ themselves don't feel safe anymore!
