But, even women who wear salwar kameez and saris also get raped indicating dress code is not going to make a difference. The crime of sexual assaults on women is the outcome of criminal mind-sets.
Many think that dress code will provide more challenge to rapists since when restrictions are imposed; it leads to stronger temptations among criminals to carry out their acts.
Ordering a dress code for women is like putting the blame on women for inviting rapes rather than criminals owning up to their unlawful actions.
Rather than dictating a dress code for women to 'escape rapes', government should do their duty properly to curb the crime of sexual attacks on women.
Do these politicians and religious leaders wish to wrap Indian women in reams of cloth and chastity belts to prevent sexual attacks?
