India is the world’s most dangerous country for women due to the high risk of sexual violence and being forced into slave labor, according to a recent poll conducted by internationally recognized global experts.
Afghanistan and Syria have been ranked second and third in a Thompson Reuters Foundation Survey of 548 experts on women’s issues, followed by Somalia and Saudi Arabia.
The only western nation in the top 10 was the US, which ranked joint third when respondents were asked where women were most at risk of sexual violence, harassment and being coerced into sex.
The Indian media, more so Shri Sudhir Chaudhari- a Zee TV Journalist and his ilk, has been perhaps assigned the arduous task to defend his country and has been saying that “some interested gentlemen engaged with the Thompson Reuters Foundation Survey team may have manipulated the findings in order to damage the very sacrosanct image of India”.
At least in Nepal, India has a very poor image.
India definitely is a dangerous country for women that has to be admitted by all and sundry and instead of accusing the findings of the Survey, the Indian establishment should act fast that saves the girls, mostly the minors, from being misbehaved.
The minors from the Muslim and the Dalit communities have suffered the worst in the recent months and years, to which a section of the Indian media have admitted.
The poll was a repeat of a survey conducted in 2011, in which the experts engaged in the said survey saw Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Pakistan, India and Somalia as the most dangerous countries for women.
While we accuse and humiliate India to have been the most unsafe country for the women folks but yet we admit that women in Nepal too were that much not safe to some extent but not to that range that India has just been pointed out by the Thompson-Reuters poll survey.
Sex maniacs could be found in our society as well.
Each year Indian pimps (or say the brokers or DALALS) enter into Nepali territories and lure the poverty stricken girls from the hills and mountains and elope with the young and innocent Nepali girls.
The Calcutta and the Mumbai brothels speak the pathetic stories of the Nepali girls.Local Nepali pimps have been found supporting the Indian dalals.
Some girls have escaped from the brothels from India.
“India has shown utter disregard and disrespect for women … rape, marital rapes, sexual assault and harassment, female infanticide has gone unabated,” said Manjunath Gangadhara, an official at the Karnataka state government.
Government data shows reported cases of crimes against women in India rose by 83% between 2007 and 2016, when there were four cases of rape reported every hour.
Nepali nationals, mostly women folks, remain in constant fear while being in India. However, the moment they enter Nepali territory, they feel relaxed and thank the Almighty for bringing home safe.
So the Thompson Foundation Survey should be an eye opener for the entire Indian establishment instead of taking the finding otherwise by the feku Indian media.
The Indian Capital, New Delhi, the world’s second most populous city with an estimated 26.5 million people, was ranked as the worst megacity for sexual violence and harassment of women alongside Brazil’s Sao Paulo.
The Indian capital, known as the “rape capital” of India, was fourth worst of the cities in the overall poll and ranked as fourth worst when respondents were asked if women had access to economic resources such as education, land, and financial services such as bank accounts.
India has now to devise mechanisms that ensure safety to its vulnerable women folks specially the minors.
A word of advice.
