Dear Editor,Sexual assault on women is a common phenomenon in our country. Under sexual assault comes; molestation, eve-teasing, child sex-abuse, rape, marital rape, domestic violence etc. Of all these crimes, rape is the most violent crime which is committed against women.According to Section 375 of the Indian Penal Code, Rape means an unlawful intercourse done by a man with a woman without her valid consent. In recent times, rape incidents have increased manifold. According to statistics, two women are raped in the country every hour. If further statistics are to be believed, every 10 hours a girl of age 1-10 years is being raped in India.It appears that the rapists are not scared of laws. Also, cases are being reported where even minors and elderly women are being raped. The recent incident which shook the nation was the gang-rape of a 19 years old Dalit girl who died in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh after being gang raped and brutally assaulted.Some cases are a rude shock to humanity like that of a five years innocent girl being raped by her neighbour. Not only he raped her, but damaged her internal organs beyond cure. Some cases have come into light wherein teachers have raped their students. Rape outrages a woman’s modesty. After a rape a woman lives a pathetic life comprising fear, depression, guilt complex, suicidal action and social stigma. It is truly said that while a murderer destroys the physical frame of victim, a rapist degrades and defiles soul of victim. The government from now onwards, must design and implement strictly various policies and laws that would ensure women safety and security. These laws should be designed in such a way that such criminals receive extremely brutal punishments for such crimes.B Ahsanullah,Delhi
