Before Implementing Death Penalty for Rapists…

Join Facebook Page of Scaling New Heights Blog:
The girl who was brutally raped in New Delhi 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 India. 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.

Boycotting the Republic day is easy, Brijesh. No one bothers to attend it (or even watch on TV) anyway. But cancelling the new year party or making it booze-free? Sorry, now you're asking too much. Outrage on social media is one thing. I doubt if this mourning will stop anyone from having a blast on 31st Dec.

This is exactly what I am trying to tell. Let us do it differently this year. I doubt it will be :(

Sir, you have a very valid point here! But i dont think any government will do something to control the sales of alcohol as it is one of their most important revenue source! That shows how deep the roots of this unwanted culture have gone into!

The need of the hour is nothing other than strict and severe laws against all such inhuman crimes so as to infuse atleast some sense of fear in the minds of people.

I had big plans of celebrating this new year. But then i feel there is no point in celebrating when someone else is living under fear.

We need to change the fundamentalist attitude of the society. But we have to do this ourselves, sadly this is not the work of the government. Also, this is not one isolated incident, this has happened before and if we don’t change this will happen again. We need to rise towards a bright future and a safer tomorrow.
