Before Implementing Death Penalty for Rapists…

The girl who was brutally raped in
has died. The entire India
is mourning the death of her daughter. Now, entire India wants law against rape to be
made more stringent to include death penalty for all rapists.
But does death penalty or stricter rules alone prevent rapes from happening? Those six men arrested for brutally raping the girl have confessed that they don’t remember most of the things that happened on that night as they were under heavy influence of alcohol. Isn’t it the alcohol the main culprit in such cases? Don’t we need strict laws against the usage of alcohol and drugs?
We are now living in a society where drinking is part of social status. As long as this drinking culture prevails we will surely hear more such stories. Once you are drunk and lose your sense that is it – you do things which only animals do. At that time no one is going to think of death penalty or stricter laws.
We should not only advocate for stricter laws against domestic violence and rapists but also laws to reduce the sales of drugs and alcohol in
If we can reduce the use of alcohol and drugs, naturally all these crimes will
come down drastically.
Let us start from today. I have seen people on Facebook and Twitter requesting others to boycott Republic Day celebrations as a mark of respect to the departed soul. Let me request you all one thing – let us have an alcohol free New Year celebration on December 31st night as a mark of respect to that daughter of India who has lost her life to the cruel incident of rape.
