Prostitution itself is not illegal in our country, but soliciting and public prostitution are illegal. In some developed countries like Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Greece, Turkey, the Netherlands, Hungary, and Latvia, prostitution is legal and regulated. Some research about this legalization in these countries have proven that it has reduced the number of rape & molestation cases to 40% (approx.). Prostitution has been going on and will go on, so why not control & regulate it.

There are 2 major advantages of prostitution: 

1. Sexually deficient population can gain satisfaction and don't have to turn to rape and molestation.

2. Prostitutes will get an identity and consequently better access to health care facilities.

Now the thought comes, why to give privilege to the rapists, why not work towards formation of strict punishments against them. I have also spent enough time wondering about it. I do believe that rapists should be brutally punished, it will give moral confidence to the victim and an example to the population.

But you can punish the rapists as harshly as you want... but still it won't undo the damage done to the victim. Prevention is always better than cure. And reduction of 30-40 is a gigantic change, rape statistics will demote from 32,000 rape cases per year to 19,000 rape cases per year. I know this change isn't absolute nevertheless it's huge.
