Delhi gang-rape case has changed people's mindset for good
The horrendous gang rape of a 23-year-old paramedical student led to an outrage and protests were held across India. But one good thing that has come out is that the incident has led to a positive change in the mindset of people across the country.

IT IS hard to forget the gruesome gang rape of Jyoti Pandey on a moving bus in Delhi and her subsequent death in a Singapore hospital almost two weeks after the incident.

In this video, psychiatrist Vishal Chhabra said, “Rapes has been taking place from a long time back. People in our country believe that when girls wear western clothes exposing their skin, people get attracted. But, due to this rape should not take place.”

Many people claim that girls wearing short and revealing dresses are raped, but most rape victims are covered up properly, still rapes take place.

Unprecedented scenes were witnessed near India Gate and the Raisina Hill in Delhi, where protesters demonstrated and shouted slogans, demanding death sentences for the rapists. They also gathered to show solidarity with Jyoti Singh Pandey.

Chhabra added, “The mindset of the people has changed positively after the Delhi gang rape case. The girl received huge support.” He also added that from now on girls will also not be afraid, as they will receive support from people.

With such kind of support for the girl, Chhabra is positive that number of rape cases will decrease. He said, “After the positive change that has been brought about by the society with Delhi gang rape case, I expect that in the future such cases will decrease. Girls will also not be afraid to talk about it was well.”

Chhabra maintains that girls need to be careful as to who they are making friends with on the social networking websites. He was referring to a recent case when a 17-year-old girl was raped in Safdarjung Enclave on New Year’s Eve by her Facebook friends.
