What is the main reason for India's rape crisis?
The gruesome rape and hanging of two teenage girls again proves how women continue to suffer in India's endemic culture of rape.
What led to India's rape crisis?
Is it sexual Violence and a culture of male domination?
Is it poor rural developments and lack of basic sanitation that led to women being vulnerable to sexual assaults?
Is it Ineffective Leaders who trivialize, tolerate and even condone rape?
Is it the caste system that led to powerlessness amongst the lower caste people?
It's the rapist's choice to rape!
If someone has made up their mind they are going to attack someone it's simply a matter of time until they find an easy target.
The current Population of India in 2014 is (1.27 billion).
A total of (24,206) rape cases were registered in India.
The U.S. population presently stands at (318 Million).
According to the New York Times, (84,767) assaults defined as forcible rapes were reported in 2010! This doesn't include "statutory rape".
Odds are both nations have instances of rapes which were never reported. Nevertheless when you compare the overall population of the two countries it's clear if India is has a "rape crisis" than the U.S. has gone nuclear!
One rape is too much!
However I think it's a slippery slope when we start looking at other "causes" other than the rapist or attacker. When we do so we are unintentionally attempting to "justify" their behavior. (If it weren't for "this" or "that" he never would have done it.) It was (their) choice!
We're all living under the same sky. At some point you have to accept the fact that some people are naturally evil.
Rightly so, there are certainly more cases of sexual assault or rape reported elsewhere.
India's "Rape Crisis" is much more about the figure of reported cases. It is about how the rape is carried out, how the police handled the cases and the response from the politicians.
Elsewhere, we do not hear stories of how girls were gang-raped and hanged in the village in broad daylight. Neither do we hear stories of how the victim's father had to literally beg the police for help, only to be mocked for his low caste status. And there are politicians who are trying to trivialize rape.
Indeed, a rapist would have made up his mind to rape long ago.
But if we do not seek more reasons as to why horrendous rape and murder cases became so rife, we will only simply say that it is due to sexual violence.
And the only measure we will implement is harsher punishments.
But harsher punishments alone is not effective when the police is mocking the victims from a lower caste. Or when the politicians are normalizing rape. Or when 65% of women in rural areas venture alone in the night to relieve themselves in the field as no toilets are built in the village.
