Have we really opened our eyes or taken lesson from 16th December 2012’s Nirbhaya’s brutal, cold-blooded rape and killing that had shocked and brought the entire nation to shame two years back? Subsequently, All over India, Lacs of people had taken to streets with candles & torches voicing concerns for the safety of women that is the responsibility of every government. The cases of rapes are heard and read every day in the news papers. The statistics are alarming. In 2011-12, there were over 700 odd rape cases and one year later it is risen almost double of it.
We have plenty of leaders like Mulayam Yadav whose offensive statement on rape issue had shocked the female fraternity that boys must be pardoned for their mistakes.
|THE RAPE CASES HAVE DOUBLED UP SINCE NIRBHAYA'S 2012 RAPE, THE MATTER OF NATIONAL SHAME|
On one side, our PM Narendra Modi has been heard addressing foreign business communities a number of times to get them new favorable opportunities for business in India and on other side BJP lets the ban take place on American Uber cab service provider in Delhi. It must not be overlooked that foreign companies offer job opportunities to scores of Indians when they do business here. This ban would not only would create inconvenience to Delhi commuters but also snatch away the constitutional rights of honest workers to earn rightfully in the same company creating unhealthy business atmosphere for other foreign companies that are probably planning to come to India with huge investment here. In Subsequent to this unjustified action of ban, would not they think twice before coming here?
Not only Uber has been penalized, many other cab services baring a few have also been asked to be off Delhi roads.
If this unjustifiable ban is justified by some govt. officials then Indian govt should also be banned when one of their ministers is caught red-handed while accepting bribes, committing rape, and misusing power of his office. How can entire company be held responsible and be penalized for the crime of one of its workers.
UNLAWFUL ACTION OF ONE MAN DOESN’T MAKE OTHERS CRIMINALS.
In the wake of Delhi rape, this knee jerk, unjustifiable and undemocratic reaction to ban a few cab services in the Capital can easily be challenged in the Indian court. Uber alone is believed to be having over 3000 drivers in its fold. This ban would mean that thousands of other drivers would be denied the lawful right to earn money in India contrary to BJP’s job promises made before winning the elections.
Mind it, I am not suggesting here that Uber must not be taken to task for its negligence but banning Uber and other cab services would not be a permanent solution for this national malady. Rather, it would hurt economic interest of our country.
To be honest our rotten system is to be blamed for such rapidly growing abhorring rape cases since there is no effective enforcement and fear of law in our country. Ironically, this rape accused had already been involved in molestation and rape charges and was nabbed in 2011 but let free merely after seven months in Tihar Jail. Moreover, he is believed to have acquired his character certificate from the cops which later Delhi police chief, B S Bassi claimed it to be forged and said that an inquiry is underway to probe the veracity of the cop’s signature on it.
|SHIV KUMAR YADAV, UBER DRIVER, A HABITUAL CRIMINAL|
Though I am used to it now but a day or two before, I was shocked again to read about a particular murder case where justice was delivered almost after 40 years. The accused in the said case are between 70-75 years old now. When they should have been in prison they were all at large and now when they are almost through with their lives have been sentenced. What a remarkable justice!
IMAGINE JUSTICE SHOWING ITS FACE AFTER DECADES IN INDIA!
How come we let these criminals live freely in our country for decades and decades after commission of their serious crimes.
These rape cases would continue to hound Indian or foreign women on our land until the FEAR FOR LAWS is put in place with effectiveness. If we at all strongly believe the rape to be a serious & heinous crime for women’s safety then it is high time for us to create special courts and prisons to punish these criminals with severity and speedy trials across our nation so that FEAR OF LAW can be enforced effectively.
