"A woman is raped every 14 hours in India," a reporter said. Majority of rape cases occur at homes (incests most at times). There is no safe place for women obviously. Isn't this scary? Urgent measures have to be taken to stop this inhuman act.

NEW DELHI/SINGAPORE (Reuters) - A woman whose gang rape sparked protests and a national debate about violence against women in India died of her injuries on Saturday, prompting a security lockdown in New Delhi and an acknowledgement from India's prime minister that social change is needed.

Bracing for a new wave of protests, Indian authorities deployed thousands of policemen, closed 10 metro stations and banned vehicles from some main roads in the heart of New Delhi, where demonstrators have converged since the attack to demand improved women's rights. Hundreds of people staged peaceful protests at two locations on Saturday morning.

The 23-year-old medical student, severely beaten, raped and thrown out of a moving bus in New Delhi two weeks ago, had been flown to Singapore in a critical condition by the Indian government on Thursday for specialist treatment.

The intense media coverage of the attack and the use of social media to galvanize the protests, mostly by young middle-class students, has forced political leaders to confront some uncomfortable truths about the treatment of women in the world's largest democracy.

Most sex crimes in India go unreported, many offenders go unpunished, and the wheels of justice turn slowly, according to social activists who say that successive governments have done too little to ensure the safety of women.

"The need of the hour is a dispassionate debate and inquiry into the critical changes that are required in societal attitudes," Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said in a statement.

"I hope that the entire political class and civil society will set aside narrow sectional interests and agenda to help us all reach the end that we all desire - making India a demonstrably better and safer place for women to live in."

T.C.A. Raghavan, the Indian high commissioner to Singapore, told reporters hours after the woman's death in a Singapore hospital that a chartered aircraft would fly her body back to India on Saturday, along with members of her family.

The body was taken to a Hindu casket firm in Singapore for embalming. Indian diplomats selected a gold and yellow coffin to transport her home, staff at the firm told reporters.

"We are very sad to report that the patient passed away peacefully at 4:45 a.m. on Dec 29, 2012 (2045 GMT Friday). Her family and officials from the High Commission (embassy) of India were by her side," Mount Elizabeth Hospital Chief Executive Officer Kelvin Loh said earlier in a statement.

Delhi's chief minister, Sheila Dikshit, said the woman's death was a "shameful moment for me not just as a chief minister but also as a citizen of this country".

The woman, who has not been identified, and a male friend were returning home from the cinema by bus on the evening of December 16 when, media reports say, six men on the bus beat them with metal rods and repeatedly raped the woman. Media said a rod was used in the rape, causing internal injuries. Both were thrown from the bus. The male friend survived.

The attack has put gender issues center stage in Indian politics arguably for the first time. Issues such as rape, dowry-related deaths and female infanticide have rarely entered mainstream political discourse.

Analysts say the death of the woman dubbed "Amanat", an Urdu word meaning "treasure," by some media could change that, although it is too early to say whether the protesters calling for government action to better safeguard women can sustain their momentum through to national elections due in 2014.

WORST PLACE

The public outcry over the attack caught the government off-guard. It took a week for Singh to make a public statement on the attack, infuriating many protesters who saw it as a sign of a government insensitive to the plight of women.

The prime minister, a stiff 80-year-old technocrat who speaks in a low monotone, has struggled to channel the popular outrage in his public statements and convince critics that his eight-year-old government will now take concrete steps to improve the safety of women.

"The Congress mangers were ham-handed in their handling of the situation that arose after the brutal assault on the girl. The crowd management was poor," a lawmaker from Singh's ruling Congress party said on condition of anonymity.

Protesters fought pitched battles with police around the capital last weekend. Police used batons, water cannon and teargas to quell the protests.

Commentators and sociologists say the rape has tapped into a deep well of frustration many Indians feel over what they see as weak governance and poor leadership on social issues.

A global poll by the Thomson Reuters Foundation in June found that India was the worst place to be a woman because of high rates of infanticide, child marriage and slavery.

New Delhi has the highest number of sex crimes among India's major cities, with a rape reported on average every 18 hours, according to police figures. Government data show the number of reported rape cases in the country rose by nearly 17 percent between 2007 and 2011.

Indian media had accused the government of sending the woman to Singapore to minimize any backlash in the event of her death but Raghavan said it had been a medical decision intended to ensure she got the best treatment.

The suspects in the rape - five men, including two brothers, aged between 20 and 40, and a 15-year-old - were arrested within hours of the attack and are in custody. The suspects, all from a slum in south Delhi, will be formally charged with murder, New Delhi Deputy Commissioner of Police Chhaya Sharma told Reuters.

Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde told Times Now television the government was committed to ensuring "the severest possible punishment to all the accused at the earliest".

"It will not go in vain. We will give maximum punishment to the culprits. Not only to this, but in future also. This one incident has given a greater lesson" Shinde said.

He said earlier the government was considering hanging for rape in rare cases. Murder already carries the death penalty.

Thanks for posting this important story. I just have been so depressed about it. I couldn't bring myself to. The truth is there needs to be a real conversation about women as human beings, and yes it is the cusp of 2013 and we still are in this place. And yes that includes especially Muslims. Will write more later...

Give it a month and the whole story is going to die down. No laws will be formed and neither will anything be done to protect women.

I can't describe what kind of punishment I think the culprits deserve.

My blood boils thinking about the level of heinousness people have fallen down to.

I am actually surprised noticing the outrage the incident has given rise to-this time.
Because there have been several incidents in the past which just remained ignored...
I really hope this time justice is promptly done and the demands seeking safety laws do not die down.And I really hope the system changes..

This was so heart-breaking to say the least, saw that she passed away just before going to sleep last night...I almost can't undderstand how such people exist, that would do these vile things - though I know they do, it is just so outrageous that women aren't safe from such acts - rape+beating...i just don't know what to say...it is indeed extremely depressing....

akhan, it will be another tragedy on top of this one if that is the case - I hope the protests don't die down and that the people's voices continue to be strong well after months have passed - how can the govt not do something about this??? It is sad that we wait til women are killed or take their own life (as another Indian teenager did this week, after being gang-raped herself), or in the case of our country, waiting til 6-7 year old are gunned down, to have a strong voice about that issue.

From what I've known in general and reading more lately, rape and assaults vs. women in India is too frequent of course, given the stats quoted - I heard something like "every 20 min, someone in India is raped" not to mention 14 hours.

Ugly world we live in - and seems like it's just getting uglier by the day. Sad

Women are chattels and a burden to their families in India, baby girls are regularly killed.

Till this changes nothing will.

India is so corrupt you can't even get out of the airport without having to slip someone a few hundred rupees.

Had this woman not have died, I don't think those around her would have made her life worth living.

Nobody is going to pay for this crime, unless one or more of the perpetrators is too poor to bribe the police.

Agreed sis Foza - I do realize what akhan said and what you are saying is the common view - in part, the reason my parents left, not to mention how at least then and I think now still, Muslims are 2nd class citizens.

Sad that with so many voices, that corruption just knocks them (oir at least, the loud voices) out by just existing.

My mother goes against what most others say about India (the IT booming, and how it's advancing) but when you can't provide clean water to everyone, as well as this issue we are discussing here, those things are  not much of an achievement when you think about it.

That's what I expect the masses to do. I believe demonstrations like this most now be taken seriously by governments as it's evident from Arab Spring that the masses can bring change themselves. Isn't this parallel with the Jahiliyyah treatment of women? Where was India when Religion and civilization bailed women out?

India is a majority Hindu country, some remote places still practice burning widows alive on their husbands pyres.

Hindus are not the most liberated when women's rights are concerned.

I don't see any chance that there's going to be progress on this front. Look at the anti corruption protests, they went on till a year with major figures involved and still nothing concrete happened. In India, it takes centuries for proper change. There's a fixed formula in India, deal with the protests till the protesters get tired and go home. If you want proof, there's a woman in north eastern India who has been on a fast since over a decade to protest for some benefits that aren't being paid to widows of soldiers. The benefits didn't come out but they force feed her by putting a tube through her nose. Of course there's the IT revolution and growing education and all that, but corruption is a major problem that won't go away anytime soon. And it's not like India is the only country with corrupt politicians, even American politicians are corrupt, or British, or take any other country in the developed world and there are varying levels of it but, the only difference is that they call it lobbying.

I wonder how people could invent such kind of wicked acts and make them part of a belief. This is of course different from corruption. People gain from being corrupt, but what do they gain by assaulting and maltreating women?

We just had elections in Gujarat(a state in India) and 30% of the elected people had criminal cases pending against them, including rape, murder and extortion(all this is apart from the bribery and regular corruption) and only Allah knows how many of the 70% remaining did stuff that went unreported. So, if the system is overhauled, at least 50%(and I'm being safe here otherwise I'd say 95%) of India's politicians will be convicted. That's why they won't let it happen.

Looks like a lot of Indian politicians have a vested interest in not doing anything to see that rapists are arrested and punished.

http://www.salon.com/2012/12/29/indias_culture_of_rape_is_endemic/

 India’s culture of rape is endemic


By choosing candidates facing rape charges, the country's political parties have implicitly sanctioned the crime
By Jason Overdorf, GlobalPost

NEW DELHI, India — As angry protesters marched on India’s symbolic seat of power last week, the nation’s august members of parliament raged against the government’s failure to stop violence against women.

They blasted the Delhi police for incompetence and insensitivity. And they cried out for the death penalty for six men accused of brutally gang-raping a 23-year-old woman aboard a private bus on Dec. 16. The woman succumbed to her injuries on Friday in Singapore, where she was being treated at a hospital, according to media reports.

In the story of India’s battle against sexual assault, the honorable members ignored one important footnote: Every major political party has fielded and continues to field candidates facing criminal charges for rape, harassment and other crimes against women.

“We found that all these parties had given tickets to people of dubious backgrounds, involved in crimes against women,” said Anil Bairwal, national coordinator of the watchdog group National Election Watch. “It’s the highest order of hypocrisy.”

According to mandatory self-declarations filed by candidates with the Election Commission and tabulated by National Election Watch, India’s leading political parties have offered tickets to 27 candidates accused of rape and a whopping 260 candidates facing charges for crimes against women ranging from assault to harassment over the past five years. As a result, two members of the current parliament and six members of the various state legislative assemblies are facing rape charges, while 36 others face charges for lesser crimes against women.

Not one of India’s major parties is innocent of the charge, and by some measure the two largest, national parties, the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are the worst offenders, according to National Election Watch. While most of the rape accused hail from smaller parties, or from the regional Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party, both based in Uttar Pradesh, 11 out of 36 legislators facing charges for crimes against women hail from the Congress and BJP. And out of the 260 candidates offered tickets despite facing such charges, the Congress and BJP account for 50.

Even amid the ongoing furor, Congress MP Abhijit Mukherjee, the son of President Pranab Mukherjee, was compelled to make a backhanded offer of resignation on Thursday after he made sexist remarks about women protesting India’s failure to stop sexual assault. “If my party high command demands I will do that,” he told a TV news channel.

And they’re wondering why the people have taken to the streets.

“They don’t treat violence against women as a serious issue,” said Rituparna, an activist affiliated with the Citizens’ Collective Against Sexual Assault. “Any violence against women should be treated seriously, and not with callousness.”

The impact of that callousness goes far beyond discouraging women from bringing charges against their abusers, as it trickles down more readily than any economic growth. Between 2002 and 2010, as many as 45 women were raped by the police while in custody, according to the Asian Center for Human Rights — while Indian law, which requires prior sanction from the government before law enforcement personnel can be prosecuted, protected the officers responsible.

The same week as the Delhi gang rape, a woman in Uttar Pradesh claimed that a police officer who’d promised to help her prosecute her attacker had instead raped her himself.

A series of horrific stories, known in shorthand as “the Mathura case,” “the Rameezabee case” or “the Suman Rani” case, make it all too clear that Indian women are not safe from sexual assault in the country’s police stations themselves. In the Mathura case, for instance, a 16-year-old girl was allegedly raped by two policemen in a Maharashtra police station while her unwitting parents waited patiently outside.

Where it comes to other security forces, such as the Indian army or paramilitary troops, the situation may be even worse. Women of Indian-administered Kashmir and Manipur — where the Armed Forces Special Powers Act grants the army untrammeled powers — have long complained that they are targeted for sexual assault. And in at least one notorious incident, at least 53 Kashmiri women were allegedly gang-raped by army personnel conducting interrogations related to the militant separatist struggle.

Protests against the decay of law and order and the callous treatment of victims of harassment and sexual assault continued this week in New Delhi, and across India. And though the protesters are now fewer in number, and have ceded contentious symbols such as India Gate and the house of the president to the police following a hamfisted crackdown over the weekend, the anger has not dissipated.

On Wednesday, for instance, a group of young women who had been part of protests at Jantar Mantar — a spot designated for expressions of civil disobedience — complained to the media that they had been detained and beaten up by the police the day before, according to the Times of India. (Police confirmed they had detained 17 women but denied they had been mistreated).

From a spontaneous outpouring of rage — mostly characterized by calls for castration or the death penalty for the rapists — the protests have increasingly turned against the political establishment. After police turned water cannons, tear gas and canes on protesters over the weekend, a tardy and inarticulate statement from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was inadvertently sent to the media unedited, ending with him asking his minders, “Theek hai?” (“That OK?”).

The response, via Twitter and other social media, as well as the people shouting in the street, was a resounding “No.”

But the anger is not so much directed at the Congress Party government currently responsible for law and order in the capital, as well as the nation. It’s aimed at the corrupt, incompetent and hypocritical political class as a whole — exactly as it should be.

“People are being given a small space in Jantar Mantar that is barricaded on both sides,” a merchant seaman participating in the protest told the Times of India.

“The protest has clearly been hijacked by political groups such as [the BJP's student wing] Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad, [the Congress' student wing] National Students Union of India, [the newly formed] Aam Aadmi Party and [yoga guru turned would-be kingmaker] Baba Ramdev.”

The trouble with that kind of hijacking, however, is it’s almost certain to backfire.

This happened in Delhi, Hyderabad is not as bad. There's one thing that I've always noticed, South India is much more safer than the northern part. When I toured Delhi etc, everything would be shut by 8-9PM and the hotel guy warned us when we went out after 9. In Hyderabad, I never gave a second thought to the time. You can go out all alone with a bag of gold even at 2-3AM without being afraid of anything, even women can, I don't recommend it though. But, I've seen women at the bus stand even at midnight. Point is - Hyderabad!!! Grin

Dealing with the police is horrible everywhere though. But, the kind of stories I've heard about rape or eve teasing or anything to do with women in Hyderabad, the guy is tortured so much in the police station itself that it won't matter whether or not he's convicted. Hyderabadi police is slightly better than Delhi's in that aspect at least. And the general rule of south being better than north applies as well. People are a bit more decent here.

This horrible stuff happens right here in the US. 

I took this from Facebook:

This is really disturbing. Looks like some members of the Steubenville High football team, drugged an underage girl, took her semi unconscious to several parties and ganged raped her all through the night. The prosecutor has a son on the team and the girl was actually taken to the prosecutor's house also. Looks like the members of this 3 time championship team would not be prosecuted for their crimes and in the story it say the prosecutor even met with the parents of the girl to convince them not to press charges. Anonymous took notice and hacked the team members accounts and found this video of the team members bragging about the rape and posted it on youtube.
This video is very disturbing be warned. What is wrong with people???

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/02/steubenville-high-school-joke-rape-targeted-anonymous-video_n_2398479.html

Again, the video is very disturbing.
