Death Penalty For Rape In Any Case If Proven !

#IndiaAgainstRapeCulture DEATH PENALTY FOR RAPE We want to end the rape culture prevailing in our society! I guess the word 'Rape' is enough to describe our point. Any one who commits this brutal crime does not have the right to be alive as they have already destroyed the life of someone.   You must be thinking why we are saying rape has become a culture? Its because it has become an ideology, and once its becomes so, it defiantly becomes a culture!   Some Examples: -  1. School principal arrested in state of Jharkhand states, “It was accidental and not a “BIG CRIME””.  This shows that such mentality prevails in our society against such viciousness.  2. Few days’ back a European girl was raped in the cab by the cab driver in North India and many such cases have come into light in the recent days. 3. A 4 year old was raped by a school mate in Dwarka in the National capital by her school mates few days a back. Isn’t it some kind of shit? But my fellow Indians it’s our harsh reality.. 4. One of our honorable MP gave statement on the recent Chandigarh rape case stating,  “Victim should not have boarded auto rickshaw when three men were already inside”.  That’s the sickening mentality in your culture that is testified right from those who are architect of law in our country. 5. Not with standing a Class 5th boy was taken into custody for sexually harassing and raping a 7 year old school mate in school premises in the city of Gaziabad in UP. Report says that he twigged a wooden object in the private part of the girl that caused her grievous injury. It became obligatory for me to think that how a boy at a mere age of 10 got to learn raping? Isn't it the sickening culture prevailing in the society that taught him so? I leave the debate open for you all. Examples are many but voices are none. So lets take a challenge to change this culture. Lets sign a petition to out leaders at center stating the voice of our county. Let us tell them what India wants. Unless there are some harsh laws against this crime, nothing will change. Because its in the mindset of people who commits it. Therefor we Demand Death Penalty For Rape In Any Case If Proven. If its committed, the the culprit should be hanged until death.  Sign the petition and support us!  Parth Raj Parasar Petitioner  parasar.pr@yahoo.com

Petition to Hotel Association of India, Federation of Hotel and Restaurant Association of India, Deep kalra

Hotels should not be allowed to deny entry based on regressive policies

Being a single woman comes with a very heavy price tag.. that of your safety as I was recently made to realise I am Nupur Saraswat, a 22-year-old spoken word artist and this is my story: On the morning of 24th June 2017 I arrived at a hotel in Hyderabad. I had been traveling from Bangalore by a bus over night, so I was looking to taking some rest in my room before going to my performance venue in the evening. However when I reached the hotel, I could sense the discomfort of the all-male staff on account of my presence. Ignoring these vibes I went ahead and showed my online booking confirmation to the receptionist. I was asked if someone else was joining me later to which I said no. To my horror I was told that it could not be allotted a room since the hotel policy did not allow single women to stay alone in the hotel rooms. I tried to make sense of it all, tried to reason with the receptionist, made some phone calls, tried everything I could but the conclusion was that my booking and the money paid for the room was not to be honored. Thankfully for me it was 11am in the morning and I somehow managed to come out the situation. But I shudder to think what would have happened if it was 11pm in the night and I was a stranger to the city with no friends around to help me out Mine is not an isolated case. No room for single women. No room for unmarried couples. No room for locals. We have heard many such excuses by hotels to deny entry to innocent and helpless people These aren't policies sanctioned by law, instead they come under the misused clause "right to reserve entry into a private property at management's discretion". Today it is me, tomorrow it could be any one of us. These regressive policies affect all of us and have large scale implications. It could mean a domestic violence survivor running away from an abusive home will not be given shelter in a cheap hotel just because she is alone or maybe because she is a local resident. Women’s safety cannot be only about eve teasing, molestation or rape. It is also about making spaces safe and available. It’s time the Hotel Association of India intervenes in the matter and puts an end to this unfair and discriminatory policy Even Hotel aggregators like Goibibo, Makemytrip and OYO through which a majority of hotel bookings are done should take a stand and filter out such hotels Sign my petition

Petition to Narendra Modi (Prime Minister of India), Maneka Gandhi, Shashi Tharoor

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. Thank you! Sincerely Daughter Of India
