    Crime is common to all societies of he world. Even in Communist China, there are corruption, fraud, and punishment. Some years ago, some Chinese were arrested for extracting bricks out of the Great wall. But punishments are severe there.

    Crime can be prevented if
    (1)punishments become severe;
    (2)there should be some psychological lead for the people. There should be some religious teachings by preachers daily among people. Someone should keep preaching moral values in every corner of the land. Instead of going to churches on sundays only, it should be made a daily affair, like Hindu temples in India. Worshiping goes on 24 hours a day. If the society is preoccupied with worships, hearing preachers, offering poojas, others who commit crime will have second thoughts.
    (3)Even after these, if crimes happen, police and courts should be ready to punish the criminals.
