Petition to Arvind Kejriwal

We want to be safe, not to be raped.

We women want FREEDOM, not FEARDOM. I'm a Delhiite and honestly I'm no longer proud of it. As it's familiar to all that how safe Delhi " The (RAPE) Capital of India" is currently. Every day more than 6 girls are raped and 11 molestations occur against girls in the state. There's 277% rise in rape cases in Delhi from past 5 years. Families fear to send their daughters outside home even in day time. This is how unsafe Delhi has become. In January 143 rape cases were registered in Delhi out which 43 remained unsolved. Also women are not even safe in their house. Fathers, brothers and relatives rape and molest the girls. And thus these girls suffer from depression. Infants are even raped. Even they're not spared from this heinous crime.  After the Nirbhaya case, the rape cases increased instead of decreasing because the culprits didn't get the punishment yet. Death sentence have been passed but not executed. Its been almost 5 years since the Nirbhaya case happened and still the rapists are alive. Why it's taking so long to punish the rapists? The major reason of rapes increasing in our country is that there is no deterrent punishment for it. There is zero fear in the minds of men because they know how slow our judicial system is and how many of them escape the punishment. Most of the rape cases are not even registered because of strong political or business background of the rapists family. Rapes can be diminished only when our law and our punishments become deterrent. There needs to fear in the minds of men and they should know that if they even tried to commit rape they'll not be spared. We women are just a body to be used? Why can't we walk safely in our own country ? Why aren't men told to not go out of the house after 8 ? For how long women will have to suffer just because they're women ?   Well I want to make a humble request to our PM Shri Narendra Modi that make its high time that he should move his focus on women's safety also. And make our safety laws more strong and firm. I would also like to request our CM Shri Arvind Kejriwal to kindly take an action for the safety of women. As women are no longer safe in Delhi and he being the CM of Delhi should as soon a possible take necessary steps to make Delhi a better state for us women to live. Our judicial system should process faster and they should not take years to sentence the rapists. There needs to fear of law in men who think its okay to rape a women.  Please sign my petition so that some steps can be taken to make women's safety and rape laws firm.

Immediate arrest of the accused and speedy trial of the atrocity case

Immediate arrest of the accused and speedy trial of the atrocity case, Beed district, Maharashtra, India    Objective: The aim of this petition is to draw attention both at national and international level towards the negligence observed by the police department in making an immediate arrest of the culprit Bhimrao Pokale and deliver justice to the oppressed Kale family belonging to Scheduled Caste residing at Pothara Village in Beed taluka in Beed district, Maharashtra. Background: Caste oppression continues to be social phenomena mainly in rural areas of India. Despite the huge claims made about development, ‘digital India’, ‘shinning India’ by the State, the caste base discrimination, exclusion, violence and sexual abuse against the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe groups popularly called as Dalits continue to be an everyday norm of Indian social life. Following is the description of the incident of sexual abuse of along with the chronology of events that followed the incident depicting the negligence on the part of the police administration regarding the case.  Victim:  Married woman (hearing and speaking impediment) Caste: Scheduled Caste Type of Crime: Sexual abuse and attempt to rape F.I.R:  354,354(a)(1),354(a)(2), 323, 3(1) Location: Pothara Village, Beed taluka, Beed district, Maharashtra.  Date and time of crime: 02 June 2017, 11 pm Accused name: Bhimrao Pokale Caste: Upper Caste Maratha Incident: The victim is a married woman (hearing and speaking impediment) belonging to Scheduled Caste (SC) community (a lower caste group in Maharashtra) with two children working mostly with her husband on the farm and as agricultural labour in the Pothara Village.  Maratha is the dominant caste group with few households around twenty belonging to SC group (Scheduled Caste group in Maharashtra) in the village. The incident occurs in the late night hours around 11 pm 2nd of June, 2017 Village Pothara in Beed District, Maharashtra. The victim was sleeping with her daughter inside her small thatched hut while her husband and son were sleeping outside just a few footsteps away on their farm field. The offender Bhimrao Pokale (member of an upper caste dominant family in the village) entered the house and started abusing the victim when she woke up and tried to resist him, Bhimrao gave some heavy punches on her face. On listening to the sound of scuffle her son and husband both woke up. They both saw and realise what Bhimrao Pokale was trying to do they ran towards him. In meanwhile Bhimrao noticed them, and in rush, he pushed aside the husband and ran away. The husband shouted against him and along with his son ran after Bhimrao. However, Bhimrao escaped in the dark. The offender Bhimrao Pokale has a history of abusive behaviour and on several occasions beaten up by the women in and around the village. Most of the people recognise Bhimrao as a common threat to the safety of women in and around the villages. Despite this fact, it is surprising that the police are least bothered to arrest him immediately.  Chronology of events after the atrocity committed: 1.   3rd of June:  The victim family along with the relatives look around the place for Bhimrao but could not find him. The victim’s family filed a First Information Report (F.I.R) with the local Neknoor police station in Beed Taluka, Beed district. The concerned police officer at the police station did not register the case under atrocity act despite the fact that the victim knew the caste of the victim.  2.    4th of June: A new F.I.R filed provided with the oral statement of the victim. However, even this time police did not register the case as an atrocity case. The police did not put up appropriate section mentioning the crime. The crime reported under the section 3(1) under Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocity Act) 2015, (henceforth POA Act 2015).   One needs to know that the appropriate section is 3(1) (w)(i) and not 3(1). On requesting the concern police inspector to mention the appropriate section, the reply given was that ‘it is a typing mistake and will be taken care off’. We again ask them to rectify it by typing another F.I.R or writing directly on the F.I.R mentioning the correct section with the sign of the concerned officer, but the police officer did not accept the request. The office at Neknoor station Mr Munde assured us that the offender would be soon arrested.  3.  On the following days, no action was taken by the concern police officer at Neknoor station, and even any enquiry made about the progress of the case was not properly addressed by the department. The police did not make any effort to arrest the offender. 4. 9th of June:  We went and handed over the written request to the concerned Superintendent of the Police(SP), Neknoor Police Station, Beed district. We asked the SP that the culprit should be behind bars as early as possible. The SP accepted our request and immediately called up the concerned police officer at the Neknoor police station and asked the officer to make the arrest soon latest by 11 pm on the same day.  5.    10th June: We again meet the Assistant Police Inspector (A.P.I) Mr Munde at the Neknoor police station and asked about the progress. API Munde mentioned that he is still looking in the case and the necessary action will be carried out immediately. 6.     11th June:  we again went to the police station and asked about the status of required changes made to the F.I.R. The API Mr Munde told us that a letter has been provided along with the F.I.R and will be taken care off at the court. 7.    12th June:  The API Mr Munde asks us to be present at the session court to, once again, record the statement of the victim to file a case under the provided section of POA Act, 2015. The victim, his family members and other went to the session court to, once again, record the statement. However, the staff at session court asked us that the villagers need to produce Aadhar card as id proof, this is something that the police did not inform us. The village people do not carry this id proofs unlike most of the city dwellers at least not the agricultural labour class. So we were asked to come back next day with the Aadhar cards.  8.    13th June:  We went to the court, and after waiting for almost fours we got our appointment with the staff. However, they said that the concern camera man is not available to carry out the recording or is on leave so please come back next day. We asked them about the availability of the cameraman, but the staff provided no positive response. So the case is still pending, and the police have filed no charge sheet despite the fact that it has been more than thirty days of the occurrence of the incident. After that, we have been regularly in touch for almost ten days with the SP about the arrest, but it seems that the department has made no significant progress in arresting the offender. 9.        28th June:  We went to meet the District Collector at his office, Beed. Here also after a long wait, the officer allowed us few minutes to talk about our request. He said that let me know what I can do with the regarding the case? We asked him to take an interest in the case and ensure an immediate arrest. He said he would do so and sent us back. 10.    30th June:  The news about the delay made by the police department got published in most of the local newspapers. It was a front page news in some of the well-known papers. Still, no action was taken by the department. Yes, the SP started scolding the junior police officer, but no concrete steps followed on the ground by the department.  11.    3rd July: A request in person was made to Chief Minister of the State (who also holds the office of Home Minister), Mantralaya, Mumbai, to look into the matters and a copy of it circulated to the concerned department.  A copy of the request is submitted to Human Rights Commission, Mumbai, followed by Women and Child Welfare Department, Mumbai, Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe Commission, Mumbai.    Present situation: At the moment, the victim family is still hoping for some action to be taken up by the police department on request made to the Chief Minister of the State. The family is now seating on an agitation at Collector Office, Beed district demanding an immediate arrest of the accused Bhimrao Pokale.   On the other hand, the village leaders (mostly Bhimrao family members and other dominant caste members) are making every possible attempt to settle the case in the community not affecting 'the harmony of the village'.  The victim family members have been approached by the village elders to negotiate and withdraw the F.I.R. Since the family has decided to go ahead with the case, the village leaders are now approaching the officials in the police department and looking out for other possible avenues to pressurise the family to withdraw the case. You support matters: In light of the biased approach of the police and district administration, increasing social pressure by the upper caste villagers is drastically affecting the everyday life of the victim family members in the village. Please extend your support by signing the petition to support the victim family in the struggle against the oppressive caste system and biased State administration. Your support will ensure immediate arrest of the culprit Bhimrao Pokale and speedy trial of the case ensuring justice to the family.

Petition to Manohar Lal Khattar, Om Prakash Dhankar

Build a woman friendly & a safer Gurugram!

After innumerous number of rapes, eve teasing and other molestation incidents that brutalises the lives of women living in Gurugram & other parts of Haryana, I personally don't see any difference or development that has been brought around by the government officials to ensure that such incidences do not happen again. As an Indian, I feel ashamed when my people do not feel safe to walk out at night because they fear that they may not come back safe & sound or may be at all. Is it the world we wanted for ourselves and our beloved family. India has been rich in culture & we have always respected women. However, unfortunately we currently live in a dirty society where due to some uneducated and ill raised people, the women of India have to suffer and undergo agony & pain- mental, physical & societal. Can the Government of Haryana & the Government of India ensure that we have street lights across the roads irrespective of them being a highway, service lane or the roads inside the societies. Can the government make sure that at every kilometre we have patrolling to avoid any unfortunate events from happening. Most of the rape cases that we come across happens in area which is away from the hustle bustle of the city. Can we make sure that such areas specially are either gated or kept under vigilance at least at nights if not possible in the day light. Please Mr. Khattar, do not let any other woman or girl child go through hell of a situation just because you and your government do not bother to care. Please install street lights on every road way that exist in Gurugram & in all of Haryana. Get us women patrol cars in a stretch of  every 5 kms. Work on the great scheme launched by Atal Ji- School Chale Hum. Education is the easiest way to change the mindset of the people around. It can bring around revolution for the state. Make self defense a mandatory thing in schools be it private or public. Please do something for us. I lived in Delhi for the last 2 years and when the time came for me to shift to Gurugram, I along with all my family members were in terror. Please do not make us feel responsible for getting raped. Let's us live in a unterrorized society as free as a bird. As free as we deserve.

Petition to "Country Heads", Donald Trump

Security, Safety, Dignity, Freedom For Women

Half of the world's population belongs to women and almost 75% of work on earth is executed by women. If women power ends, the world soon will end. Therefore world’s better half i.e. women have all the right to make decisions about themselves in all areas of their interest. But it is painful that on an average, there are 321,500 victims (age 12 or older) of rape and sexual assault each year in United States. The condition is even worse in other countries. Gang rapes and Rapes are also the most common crimes against women in India. As you are aware, in addition to this, the main cause of young and child female trafficking is the sex business or prostitution. Here women are placed in even worse condition than a gang rape for almost a life time’s duration. In view of increased gang rapes, painful brutal barbarous atrocities on women throughout the world and increased female trafficking; all sex centers or prostitution centers should be stopped with immediate effect and all sorts of women sex business should be made illegal all over the world. The millions of women population in these sex centers should be freed immediately and for their safe custody, all possible efforts be made to locate their family by the government in a time frame of max. 3 months. If not possible, they should be rehabilitated in women's reform homes and be provided necessary training in various professional courses as per their ability. Looking to the horrific and serious problem of women and also the natural urge and necessity of a male; it is proposed to open SEX DOLL CENTERS approved by government level on public and private basis. In these centres, any person interested to relieve his sex urges can go and enjoy freely the full sized robot sex doll of his choice who is capable of performing all sexual acts of his fantasy. Now onwards, country having sex dolls centres should be warned strictly that onwards, if any person make attempt to rape any girl, then he will be arrested immediately and his organ will be made inactive temporarily by surgery with immediate effect. Then the person or group should be prosecuted in the Fast Track Court. The court will have to give its decision within three months. With the conviction of the crime, his organ should be removed with life imprisonment. If found innocent, his organ will be made active and normal. In addition to this, following measures should also be taken to uplift women - 1.  Any kind of women harassment and molestation made by any person who so ever he may be, will be given strict punishment. 2.  It should be made mandatory to protect every woman's security, safety, dignity and freedom under all circumstances. 3.  Hoardings, Sign boards, Display boards should be mounted widely throughout the world for strict compliance to women’s respect, dignity, safety and security in all ways. 4.  Only after leaving the mindset of superiority of men, the country head can make rules to control rapes, gang rapes, exploitation and oppression on the women done by men and give them full protection and dignity, honour and prestige and provide free training, employment and also support to run home industry. 5.  Problems like hunger, malnutrition, disease, unemployment etc. in women are not short in this world and we should try to reduce them. 6.  We should also try to motivate women to fight against their inferiority, weakness, unemployment, helplessness and various other problems. 7.  Sometimes through anti-women quotes, men are nurturing rape, gang rap, exploitation and atrocities by trying to hide the failure of their own basic faults. We should try to support women under all circumstances. Muktiya World Peace, Pleasure, Prosperity Trust is engaged in serving the mankind since last ten years for women's safety and security, public welfare, social uplift, public health, equality among all and also free treatment to poor, sick and the afflicted people. Our trust requests the United Nations, All Country Heads, Feminine Organisations, Women Welfare Organisations and all Human Rights Organisations to support our Women Welfare Movement as above and to amend the law as required for a better world to the better half population of the world. For security, safety, dignity, freedom and employment to women, all possible help and assistance shall be provided by our trust.
