Not just in India....

Unfortunately rape is not just a problem in India. Women are afraid to report the crime in many countries, often because it is women who are blamed. Let's make this clear - rape is not a joke; it is not a minor crime. It is women's greatest fear. It is something that will haunt her for the rest of her life. Raping someone does not prove that a man is macho. It proves he is a beast. If an 'under age' person rapes someone, he should be tried as an adult. Adult crimes should get adult punishments. Let's stop the horror of rape! Do not let the death of this young woman in India go unpunished. And do not let her death be forgotten.
