What is the
'Cause' of 'Rape'
"छोटे कपडे देखके मन मचल जाता है|"
"ताली तो दोनों हात से बजती है|"
"She was asking for it"
"रात में अकेली लडकी, सड़क पे खुली तिजोरी है। फिर चोरी तो होगी।"
"Mobile phones are responsible for provoking rape."
" लडकी को घर से निकलने ही मत दो! घर की लक्ष्मी घर में ही रहे तो अच्छा रहता है| "
-- Candid opinions of the average male population in India.
The spine chilling 4-letter word *RAPE*. This most underrated global Pandemic since eons, has sunken it's roots deep into our society. Yes, in 2019,NCRB reported an average of 88 rape cases daily across the country, which is just the tip of the iceberg. Substantial undocumented cases of Rape have also transpired, owing to the above vile & unscrupulous beliefs that rationalise this heinous act. The Appaling accounts of Kathua, Delhi, Ajmer, Unnao & most recently, the Hathras, a meer mention of these makes your blood boil isn't it? Just imagine! There are innumerable Nirbhayas and Asifas out there, who await justice. Being, the most bruital violation of consensual Sex, Rape,within or outside marraige is a shameful crime against humanity and must be strongly condemned. *Here, where do we stand?* Would conducting candle marches suffice? The twisted mentality of Rapists needs to be called out! The genesis of a rapist is fuelled by the misogynistic, sick mindset of our very own citizens, it's about time we Uproot it. Agreed, the transition won't be overnight. Yet, let's start small, *Initiate with your family & friends. Encourage proper sex education, emphasize the Importance of Consent, Rape is NOT cool! Curb female objectification, & destigmatize legal consensual Sex.* Else, the perverted curiosity may forever withold the restoration of the Rape-public to Republic.
