I CAN understand we all discussing this.

Don't we have a Chief Minister / Prime Minister / President?
Don't they watch TV?
Don't they have brains / hearts big enough to respond to incidents like this?

Media shows all the atrocities like dragging someone by the bike, police high handedness etc. But till now i haven't seen any response from Chief Ministers / Prime Minister / President.

I CANNOT understand that. Doesn't it affect them like it affected us?

Of course it affects them. When their own relatives are involved. Case in point is yesterday's incident where Mulayam singh Yadav's borther was slapped by a cop. We all know all hell broke loose in UP after that little slap which may have been an accident for all you know. If I was that cop, I would have resigned and gone underground by now.

Just read that a British woman was raped in Udaipur(?) by the hotel manager/owner and another case of molestation with a female from the USA.

Guess this trend is now taking Epidemic Proportions.

EDIT - Another One in Kerela

I wouldnt call it a trend. It happens 1000 times a day, everyday.

The only trend i see is the media deciding to ride the "molestation" buzzword, no different than "bird flu" or "terrorist threat" or "britney spears".
However, with the media creating awareness about this hopefully people will be better informed and steps can be taken by everyone to prevent these acts in the future.

Yea I think Rehaan is absolutely correct about these issues being highlighted in the media to get public awareness and unfortunately these incidents happen on a day to day basis which goes unrecorded because of the victim's fear and other worries.

I think since the Bitti Mohanthy's(Orissa DGP BB Mohanthy's son) alleged rape involvement of a German tourist in Jaipur, these issues have garnered the media attention to come out with the truth and nail the culprits.

Why blame indians ,or indian morality ? It is really bad for the media as well as for some people discussing on this thread to squarely blame indians . Rape do happen in other countires , molestations are also common .

Now , if women skimpily dress , booze and dress in front of Real Men (LOL ) ,why would not anyone get tempted ?

I hope you said it in jest because you have a LOL in there - if not I have got the reason why these things are happening in my country.

how about holding the temptation, and respecting other's rights to being able to wear the clothes of their choice, and not yours and have drinks of their choice. I didn't get the third point though (dress in front of real men?).

on a lighter note, if that was the case, men of this country should get molested at 10 times the rate of women.

Thanks a lot GreatMana, you have helped us understand what the accused were thinking, The whole thing makes sence now.

Infact the victims should be arrested, how dare they leave their homes !!!

I wish there were more laws made by real men, so that we dont have to deal with this rubbish.

Rape, molestation, et al. List of Rape Myths
  • Rape is experienced by the victims as an act of violence. It is a life-threatening experience.
  • Research has found that the vast majority of rapes are planned. Rape is the responsibility of the rapist alone.
Check out this: Myth: Only "bad" women get raped.
