Nirbhaya case: Four years on and things still pitiable

New Delhi: ‘Raped’, the word itself signifies the pain, the agony, the hardship that any girl will have to go through. Every hour, every day there is this one girl who is being victimized from the same crime, the pain, the pathetic condition and all other things which she goes through. Every day girls go out but with a fear inside of these ‘unwanted elements of the society’ following them and that feeling of insecurity constantly arises. Have we moved on with our narrow mentality? Will the laws of our country ever be followed? When will girls go out fearless?

The black day 16 December was a day which brought mourning for the whole nation when an innocent girl was brutally gang-raped by five boys in a bus while she was returning home from a movie with her friend in posh South Delhi. After the shameful act they threw her out of the bus and fighting death for almost 13 days she finally lost her last breath on December 29 at a hospital in Singapore.

As far as the laws of our country are concerned we still do not have any strict law against the rape crime that should be enacted in quick time. The laws are only limited to paper work but when it comes to implementing them it takes a lot of time to work and everything is just the same.

If we talk about Uttarpradesh, CM Akhilesh Yadav has implemented certain laws which are helpful for girls and to some extent the laws are enforced but in some cases the cops have arrived after the crime. We all are familiar with the Highway rape case where a mother and her daughter were brutally raped but the police arrived on the crime spot long after the incident took place. The question is when will our country be a safer place to live?
