Women in a violent world
Nidhi | 09 Feb 2011

Delhi has never been very safe for women, and this is not just a perception. The crime figures for the capital compared to other cities in India for 2009, reveal that almost one-fourth of the rapes were reported from Delhi.

THIS IS a grim fact that the violence against women exists. Everyday women fight with thousands of problems. Men treat women as a source of entertainment nothing else. Everywhere like work places, colleges, schools, roads, cafe’s, girls and women face these types of problem like molestation, physical harassment.

‘Delhi’, the capital of India is known as very fast city and also very safe for the women (as government said) but I can’t believe how?

Delhi has never been very safe for women, and this is not just a perception. The crime figures for the capital compared to other cities in India for 2009, reveal that almost one-fourth of the rapes were reported from Delhi. Similarly, almost two-fifth of kidnappings/abductions of women happened in Delhi, 15 per cent of dowry deaths and 14 per cent of molestation cases.

Uttar Pradesh is a state where crime is rampant and also not safe for the women. After 7’o clock women can not come out of their houses. In last two months I heard a many rape cases from the Uttar Pradesh. Most recent is Sarika’s rape case, three boys in a ghastly attempt to rape her tied a black scarf on her eyes and chopped off her nose, ears and hands with an axe, when she resisted. After watching this I was numb with a shock, how can anyone do that kind of shameful sin.

Every day when I switch on the television I find a so many cases related to the harassment and molestation of women like a nine year old girl was raped by her school teacher, a 15 year old girl was raped by none other than but by her father, her brother and so on. Girls are molested by boys at every place like railway stations, bus stands, roads, and work places.

Every politician says these precious words in their speech, “We will do this or that in the security of women” but when? Nobody knows.

But now we have to do something for the security of women. This is not bearable now. Not a single place is safe for her even not her home.

Women are very precious please save her and understand her value.
