Dear Editor, In our society girls are worshipped as Durga Mata, Laxmi Mata by people but still there is increase in number of violence against women. The cases of violence against women has increased by many fold. Females were previously restricted to the four walls of the houses and after globalisation they have got the chances and opportunities to stand equally in all sectors at par with male and they have done commendable job. It is a good sign that the mindset of the society has changed to some extent but not to the extent it needs to be. Still there are some people who believe that males are superior than female and always try to dominate the women folk. Eve teasing, sexual harassment, rape, domestic violence against women are weapons used by the sick male-mentality to display male superiority. This is one of the prime reason violence is increasing and women safety has become a major concern in India. The slow pace of operation of Indian judiciary is another major reason for the increasing cases of violence against women in India. Our judicial system is not efficient to deal with such cases and that is the reason why the cases of violence against women takes long time in the investigation phase. It is a shame that rapes take place every day. Rape is a disease which attacks from everywhere to everywhere. It is an evil that has no boundaries. It is present in every nook and corner of the world. It doesn’t differentiate between a 3-year-old kid and an 80-year-old lady. From parties to workplaces to our homes, rape and harassment have become a norm. The survivors of these heinous crimes are then left to be humiliated throughout their life. Some of them even spend their whole “after rape life” on ventilators or they are burnt alive. In order to improve status and women safety, the first think that needs to be done is to change in mind set of people. Men should be taught to respect females right from childhood. They need to learn how to behave with women. Moreover, there should be fast-track courts to deal with cases and they cases should be investigated in a time bound manner. Only strict laws and implementation can solve the problem of women safety in our society. Sonika Sharma, Jammu.
