Rape is worst crime according to me. It is crime which should be treated as murder . In murder a human looses his/her life , in rape victim is robbed of her/his dignity. It is murder of soul and often rape victims lives with the event till victim’s lives.
Recently read archives of times of India which had article on rape . The article was of 2002 and title read ‘In India girl is raped every 54 minutes’. Shockingly and unfortunately today if same article is written title would be ‘In India girl is raped every 20 minutes’. Unfortunately in rapidly growing country ,rape too is growing rapidly.
While there are various theories on rising rape crimes in India , all of them agree that this worst crime needs to be dealt with .
