capital punishment for rapists if proven guilty
This petition had 15 supporters
I assume that we all are aware of increase in number of rape cases year by year in India. The only reason behind this is 'weak' law for rape in our country. Rapists do not fear law and order that is why they commit this heinous crime.
Women in our country are not safe if we do not have strict laws for women safety. (Carrying Pepper spray would not work every-time). Time will come soon when India will be ranked no.1 in unsafe place for women.
If there was law of capital punishment for rape in India, the rapists of 2012 Delhi gangrape case would not have dared to even think about committing this heinous crime. Are we waiting for another 2012 Delhi gangrape to happen to give death penalty to rapists? Why not all rape accused are given CAPITAL PUNISHMENT if proven.
Even though Supreme court of India has increased jail term for rape, number of genuine rape cases is on rise since then (especially gangrapes). It is an indication that we need a better law for it. Though number of false rape claims has also increased, we can set strict law for false claimer(s) to discourage this.
There are many such petitions coming up daily, but i think our government has no time to look into them. So, its better to make it a political movement and give the government target for 2019.
Message to our Government and Supreme Court of India:
We demand CAPITAL PUNISHMENT for Rapist(s) if proven guilty and strict law for false rape claimer.
