Rape and death sentence in India

The ongoing agitation by youngsters in Delhi and suburban against a heinous incidence of gang rape is quite deplorable. India is not a Theocratic or Monarchic country where the death punishment is a farfetched truth.  The recent rape in a bus is most imminent as if the fire and fiber are knit together for an ignition.  Such kind of issues are quite common not even   one percent of such rapes are exposed in India. The regular news in the media about rape victims are hot on the day and become oblivious and sluggish as the days pass on things goes unwary. The penalty for adulterer is very severe in Arab countries, and even the,Holy Qur’an  Bible speak severity of such nasty act as under:

The Noble Qur'an An-Nur 24:2
“The woman and the man guilty of illegal sexual intercourse, flog each of them with a hundred stripes. Let not pity withhold you in their case, in a punishment prescribed by Allâh, if you believe in Allâh and the Last Day. And let a party of the believers witness their punishment. (This punishment is for unmarried persons guilty of the above crime but if married persons commit it, the punishment is to stone them to death, according to Allâh's Law)” 

The Bible: Leviticus 20:10

‘If there is a man who commits adultery with another man’s wife, one who commits adultery with his friend’s wife, the adulterer  and the adulteress shall surely be put to death. (Leviticus 20:10)

What most of the Islamic countries implement death penalty or severe lashes on such crimes are much debated as barbaric and   generally unwelcome in democratic Western world. Even euthanasia,mercy killing is under severely disputed  on terminally ill patients where death is looming.  

 The vociferous cry on death penalty in the parliament is outlandish and weird because such penalties had been executed on notorious rapists Billa and Ranga, on Geeta and Sanjay Chopra incidence in 1982, serial killer Auto Shankar in Tamil Nadu in 1995, and rapist Dhananjoy Chatterjee in 2004 in West Bengal as a pragmatic count.

They were the events well exposed in media days together, including interviews with hangman Naka Mallick, showing the noose how resilient it should be while negotiating hanging from a gibbet. Do you mean all these death penalties have deterrent factors from such heinous detrimental crimes.

If death sentence is being imposed on the proved rapists,Indias population perhaps reduced to considerable extent. The sexual abuse in office, and every sphere not to mention the obvious spots, the woman aspires for higher post or her economic disorder compels her to succumb to such tragic affairs.

We have seen M.L.As viewing pornography in the assembly hall and they were get caught.If a woman needs a promotion, and she approaches these kinds of minions, there is a inflaming fire on her yarn.

 I should rather wish to expose such silent rape victims’ are being often transpired, such as even unwed pregnancies raped (a church pastor raped 13 years girl), such things are nothing mysterious or unfamiliar. Larger domestic victims are secreted within four walls because of familial restraints.

The most important to manipulate the rape victims is modesty of women, inflexible attitude from conflicting  or confronting felon, and women should not become credulous to bad circles, and teenagers never to  be self –deceitful, and prey to vagaries of celluloid fictions.

More important is that the rape victims without delay should tell the facts to the parents should seek police action, medical remedies to avoid HIV, and approach counseling for mental depression and reassurance love from close corners of the family.
