YES India can change…we will make it change.
“We pained a great nation stands ashamed today because of such conducts.”
A 23-year-old woman is gang raped, beaten severely, then stripped and thrown out of a moving bus! This in the heart of the capital. Why is there no stopping to this brutality? How many more women need to be gang raped and brutalized for us to get strong laws and faster prosecution in these cases?
“Capital punishment is very important. I suggest that they should be made impotent so they repent every day of their life. It is very important, unless such punishments are meted to the culprits, I don’t think women will feel secure in our country,
“Just passing a resolution won’t be sufficient and the step needs to be backed by strong action”. “This is a very brutal incident which is why we did not even light the lamp. The hearts of the entire nation is burning after listening this. I have been demanding harsh punishments for all the accused. There should be time bound investigation. Within 30 days or 40 days result should come,” Sharma said.
A brutal rape in the capital of India is committed every single day. What is horrifying about this figure is not what it adds up to but what it hides. Thousands of rape victims who choose not to go to the police to protect themselves from victim-shaming.
This kind of rape numbers exists because the rapists can get away with it. We do need a stronger law that extends the scope of complicity to people within the justice system. In addition, an effective solution to this problem must include:
· Prompt and severe action must be taken against the perpetrators
· An alternative judicial system only for sexual assault cases
· An alternate method of lodging complaints having trained professionals.
· A special fast –track court

Five steps to enhance women’s safety
Times of India
- Increase police patrolling. If necessary, hike number of cops in the city. All VIPs with more than two security personnel should give one cop from their security to enhance police presence for the public.
- Register FIRs in all cases of rape, sexual harassment and other crimes against women. Prosecute cops found persuading women to drop such complaints.
- Home guards on bus not enough. Institute system of random checking of buses by PCR vans at night.
- Use technology: All public transport must be on GPS, install CCTVs on buses, make drivers, and helpers/conductors wear non-tamperable photo IDs, create common database accessible by police and other enforcement agencies.
5. All sexual offenders must be monitored by law enforcers once they have served their sentence.
Five changes needed in our laws
Times of India

- Expand the definition of rape to include not just penile penetration of the vagina but also oral sex and penetration for sexual purpose of the vagina, anus, urethra or mouth.
- Introduce rape by security forces as a special category of aggravated sexual assault on the lines of the clause dealing with custodial rape.4. Enhance maximum prison term for molestation from 2 to 5 years and sexual harassment or what’s euphemistically called ‘eve-teasing’ from 1 to 3 years.
5. Remove gender inequities in the provisions relating to adultery and natural guardian and enact and special law to take pre-emptive action against caste assemblies inciting “honour killings.”
