|Blood on our Hands|
Time and again, we have discussed and understood the importance of the women for the development of the nation. They have the ability to make substantial contribution to the welfare and the progress of the nation. And it is our responsibility to provide them with a "safe" platform to pursue their dreams and aspirations, so that they can make this contribution.
Safety is paramount. We should give them the facilities to lead their life with safety and dignity. We should create safe surroundings so that they are able to lead their life happily, without being a refugee in their own nation.
A change in the mindset is most important. Men must be taught to respect women. Men must be made to understand that women are human's like them, and deserve the same respect which they themselves aspire.
Wouldn't a man fear for his death when he sees another man pointing a gun at him, knowing that one bullet can snuff the life out of his life? Yes, it is the same fear which is experienced by the women when they see shameless psychopathic lust in the monster's eyes.
Can a change in the mindset brought about easily? No, it wouldn't be so easy to bring about 500 Million+ men to respect the dignity of women.
Changes in the laws to bring about strict punishments for such brutal crimes can bring in a tendency of fear. It would be an added step to drive a knife into the heart of the men who are even contemplating such actions. Some people are advocating castration, while others are suggesting life imprisonment or even a death sentence. The punishment should be strict and severe.
Lastly, it would be very important to provide an environment which would be conducive for the women to conduct their day to day life without fear. How would that be possible?
How quick can these changes be implemented? It would take time. But it would very important to start them immediately so that such horrific crimes, and loss of life and dignity, can be avoided.
