Women should allow men to rape them if they want to live!In Delhi, 10 women are abducted every day. Five women are raped daily in the city. In 2014, 507 women were kidnapped and 1,838 were raped.

 In Delhi, 10 women are abducted every day. Five women are raped daily in the city. In 2014, 507 women were kidnapped and 1,838 were raped.The New India Express reports.

And the Delhi government has not spent a single rupee from the Nirbhaya Fund in the last three years.

The year began on a horrific note for Ramesh, a salesman in an upscale Khan Market shop and father of 16-year-old Jyoti. On New Year''s Day, she stepped out of her home in the high security Tughlak Road at around 3.45 pm to go to the market and meet her friends like any other teenager.

She never came back.

The family kept waiting and waiting.

Finally, Ramesh rushed to the Tughlak Road police station. The SHO told him to wait. A Missing Person's Report was filed.

Two months have passed, and the distraught father is still waiting for Jyoti to come home."

"The police have registered a case of kidnapping and they are still trying to trace my daughter. God alone knows where she is," says Ramesh. Despite a Rs 1,000-crore Nirbhaya Fund established by the UPA Government, which has been doubled by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley "in order to support programmes for women security, advocacy and awareness", not a single rupee has been spent by the Delhi administration in the last three years.

The Delhi Police has used up only Rs 1 crore.

The latest data from the National Crime Records Bureau shows that in Delhi, 10 women and girls are abducted each day and five are raped. In 2014, 3,507 cases of kidnapping of women and girls and 1,838 rape cases were registered.

Just before the tabling of the Budget proposal, the number of Rape Crisis Centres was cut drastically -- from the 660 centres promised, now only 36 will be set up.

Nine days after Jyoti vanished, a 33-year-old married woman did not return home from a garment export company in Fatehpur Beri where she worked as an embroiderer and the tailor. She usually returned to her Sultanpuri home by 7 pm where she lived with her husband and three daughters. Since she didn''t reach home by 8 pm, her husband called her on her mobile phone, but it was switched off.

He checked with her office and colleagues and was told she had left at 6 pm. He called the police control room. The next day, a security guard working in the DDA nursery near the Sultanpur Metro Station found her body behind some bushes at 8:20 am. During the investigation, the police found that she was gang-raped and murdered.

These grim incidents and statistics present the exact opposite of what the government has been showcasing as its resolve to combat crimes against women. 

Every day, 107 girls and women are kidnapped and 83 are raped across the country. In the last four years, a total of 1,64,615 girls and women were kidnapped and 1,12,981 were raped in India. In Delhi, the figures are 11,361 and 4,752 respectively.

In 2014, there were 38,907 cases of abduction and 30,136 rapes across India.

In 2013, of the 51,881 registered kidnap cases of women across the country, 3,609 were from Delhi and of the 33,707 rape cases, 1,636 incidents took place in the capital.

In 2012, of 38,262 cases of abduction nationwide, 2,160 were in Delhi and of the 24,932 rape cases, 706 happened in the city.

An analysis of rape incidents in 2014 by Delhi Police states that in 20.30 per cent of rape cases, the accused are neighbours; in 44.42 per cent cases they are friends and family friends; 13.62 per cent of the accused are relatives of the victims and in 3.19 per cent cases, the offenders are employers and co-workers. In 14.40 per cent of cases, the perpetrators are known to the victims and in only 4.06 per cent, the rapists are strangers.

It also includes 586 cases (28.32 percent) in which the accused were in live-in-relationships or refused to marry the woman.

Rs 79,258 crore has been allotted through various social security schemes for women folk, but money to be spent on women''s safety will have to be covered only by the stillborn Nirbhaya Fund.

Last year, Rs 200 crore was earmarked for women''s safety measures. Rs 150 crore went to making cities safer for women and Rs 50 crore was for making public transport safer. 

The poorly trained and understaffed police are struggling hard to combat crimes against women, but the new government is engaged in a tug of war with the Ministry of Home Affairs over ownership of Delhi Police.

Though the Delhi Police got Rs 5,027.98 crore-an increase of Rs 374.79 crore-from the last budget and allocation of Rs 4,653.19 crore to spruce up training to provide better security to residents, especially women, nothing has taken off.

Contrary to Delhi Police's tall claims that women security is their prime concern, it is well-known that a huge segment of them are deployed on VIP duty.


Delhi bus rapist: Women should allow men to rape them if they want to live

March 2, 2015
Raise your voice.(Reuters/Ahmad Masood)

One of the men who brutally assaulted and raped a 23-year-old woman on a moving bus in New Delhi on Dec. 16, 2012 blames the victim for the savagery that he—and five other men—inflicted on her.

Had she simply been "silent" and allowed the rape, "then they would have dropped her off after doing her," Mukesh Singh, one of the convicted in the horrific case, said in an interview from Delhi's Tihar Jail.

It's been more than two years since a physiotherapy student, Jyoti Singh, was raped by six men. Later, she was left to die on the city's streets, as her male companion, who was also severely beaten up, sought help from passersby.

The incident triggered nationwide protests and a demand for a lasting, sweeping change in rape laws. The judge who handled the case said that the rape had "shocked the collective conscience" of India. The assailants are now facing death penalty—but one of them, at least, feels absolutely no remorse.

In an interview for a documentary called India's Daughter, Mukesh— who was also the driver of the bus in which the incident occurred—said that girls are to be blamed for most of the rapes that occur in India.

"You can't clap with one hand – it takes two hands. A decent girl won't roam around at 9 o'clock at night. A girl is far more responsible for rape than a boy. Boy and girl are not equal. Housework and housekeeping is for girls, not roaming in discos and bars at night doing wrong things, wearing wrong clothes. About 20 per cent of girls are good."

He went on to blame Jyoti for resisting rape.

"She should just be silent and allow the rape. Then they would have dropped her off after 'doing her' and only hit the boy. The 15 or 20 minutes of the incident, I was driving the bus. The girl was screaming, 'Help me, help me.' The juvenile put his hand in her and pulled out something. It was her intestines …We dragged her to the front of the bus and threw her out."

Death penalty, in his opinion, will only make matters worse for future rape victims.

"The death penalty will make things even more dangerous for girls."

"Before, they would rape and say, 'Leave her, she won't tell anyone.' Now when they rape, especially the criminal types, they will just kill the girl. Death."

The juvenile who Mukesh mentioned in his interview was six months shy of 18 at the time of the rape, and was tried separately from the other five men in a juvenile justice court. In August 2013, he was sent to a correctional facility for a maximum term of three years. At the reform home in Sept. 2014, he was found to be cooking, sewing, painting, playing volleyball, watching television or pigeons.

Mukesh, who was 26 at the time of the incident, and four other adult perpetrators were given the death penalty by a fast-track court. Though the Delhi high court upheld the penalty in Mar. 2014, the perpetrators are waiting for  Supreme Court's hearing on their appeal.

The documentary will be broadcast in India and seven other countries on BBC4 on March 08, International Women's Day.

Here's the trailer.

India's Daughter: 'I made a film on rape in India. Men's brutal attitudes truly shocked me'

Leslee Udwin spent two years making a documentary on the horrific rape and killing of young medical student Jyoti Singh. And it asks, has the attack really spurred a sea change for gender equality in India?

Jyoti Singh, 23, had cause to celebrate. It was no ordinary Sunday. "Happiness was just a few steps away," says her father, Badri Singh, a labourer. He and his wife, Asha, originally from Uttar Pradesh, had sold their family land, to provide schooling not just for their two sons but also Jyoti. "Papa," Jyoti had instructed her father. "Whatever money you've saved for my wedding, use it for my education." Badri's brothers wondered why he was wasting money on a girl.

On this Sunday, 16 December 2012, Jyoti, a name that means light and happiness, had just completed her medical exams to become a doctor. Speaking excellent English, she spent nights working in a call centre from 8pm until 4am, slept for three hours, then studied. Her ambition was to build and run a hospital in her family's village. "A girl can do anything," she would say.

But that evening, in Delhi, she decided to go to the cinema to see The Life of Pi with a male friend. At 8.30pm, on the way home, the pair got into an off-duty charter bus. India's Daughter, a powerful, brave and heart-wrenching documentary made by Leslee Udwin, provokes grief and anger but also pity for the ignorance. It charts what then happened on that moving bus as Jyoti was brutally raped by five men and a 17-year-old ("the juvenile"), eviscerated, then thrown on to the street. It shows how for the next 30 days across India, women and men demonstrated on the streets of the country's cities, calling for the equality recognised in India's constitution but never delivered, marking what a former solicitor general, Gopal Subramaniam, calls in the film "a momentous expression of hope for society".

"It was an Arab spring for gender equality," Udwin says. "What impelled me to leave my husband and two children for two years while I made the film in India was not so much the horror of the rape as the inspiring and extraordinary eruption on the streets. A cry of 'enough is enough'. Unprecedented numbers of ordinary men and women, day after day, faced a ferocious government crackdown that included teargas, baton charges and water cannon. They were protesting for my rights and the rights of all women. That gives me optimism. I can't recall another country having done that in my lifetime."

India's Daughter is broadcast on BBC4 next Sunday, International Women's Day, and simultaneously shown in seven other countries including India, Switzerland, Norway and Canada. On Monday 9 March, actresses Freida Pinto and Meryl Streep will attend a screening in New York, launching a worldwide India's Daughtercampaign against gender inequality and sexual violence against women and girls. It begins by 20 million pupils viewing the film and taking part in workshops in Maharashtra, a state that includes Mumbai.

Each country has its own appalling bloody tally. India has a population of 1.2 billion. A rape occurs every 20 minutes. In England and Wales, 85,000 women are raped every year. In Denmark one in five women has experienced a sexual assault. Sexual assault, rape, acid attacks, murder, domestic violence, the termination of female foetuses, sex trafficking and female genital mutilation are all manifestations of male power. What is writ very large in India's Daughter, but camouflaged in other countries where equality is more strongly embedded in law, is the low value placed on females and the determination of some men, educated as well as the impoverished, to keep women padlocked to the past.

We have the best culture. In our culture, there is no place for a woman

ML Sharma, defence lawyer in Delhi rape case

"We have the best culture. In our culture, there is no place for a woman," says one man in Udwin's film. What is shocking is that he is ML Sharma, defence lawyer for the men convicted of Jyoti's rape and murder. A second defence lawyer, AP Singh, says if his daughter or sister "engaged in pre-marital activities … in front of my entire family, I would put petrol on her and set her alight".

"I began this film with a narrow focus," Israeli-born Udwin, 57, says. "'Why do men rape?' I discovered that the disease is a lack of respect for gender. It's not just about a few rotten apples, it's the barrel itself that is rotten." Udwin was an actress before becoming an award-winning producer. Her work includes Who Bombed Birmingham?, about the miscarriage of justice that imprisoned the Birmingham Six, and East is East. For India's Daughter she spent 30 hours interviewing rapists including Gaurav, a 34-year-old man serving 10 years for raping a five-year-old. "He told me in minute detail what he had done. How he had taken off her knickers. How her eyes were wide with fear. How he had done it front and back. I asked him how tall she was. He stood up and put his hand above his knee. I asked him, 'How could you do something so terrible that would ruin a child's life?' He said, 'She was a beggar girl, her life was of no value.'" Udwin found the girl, Neeta, now aged 10, and plans to make a film about her family's resilience and resistance. "She is doing OK. Her mother is a beggar and has put Neeta and two other children through school."

Central to India's Daughter is an interview in Tahir jail, Delhi, with Mukesh Singh, driver of the bus. His brother, Ram, was found hanging in his cell months after the trial. The two lived in a Delhi slum. Also involved was Pawan Gupta, a fruit seller; Vinay Sharma, a gym assistant; unemployed Akshay Thakur; and "the juvenile", living on the streets since he was 11. They had all been drinking before going out where "wrong things are done".

 India's daughter

Mukesh Singh says: "You can't clap with one hand – it takes two hands. A decent girl won't roam around at night. A girl is more responsible for rape than a boy … about 20% of girls are good." Jyoti fought back. Singh says: "She should just be silent and allow the rape. Then they would have dropped her off after 'doing her' and only hit the boy.


"The 15 or 20 minutes of the incident, I was driving the bus. The girl was screaming, 'Help me, help me.' The juvenile put his hand in her and pulled out something. It was her intestines …We dragged her to the front of the bus and threw her out."

Udwin, in Hindi, reads a list of Jyoti's injuries to Singh, caused by an iron bar and multiple rapes. They include bite marks and massive internal injuries. He shows no remorse. A gynaecologist who cared for Jyoti says for months she asked herself the same question. "Why?"

Jyoti, initially given the name Nirbhaya, meaning fearless in Hindi, to preserve her anonymity, died after 13 days. Her parents, given 2 million rupees (£21,000) by the government, set up the Nirbhaya Trust to help women who have experienced violence. "We want to help those girls who have no one," Jyoti's father says.

The government, to quell the protest that followed her death, set up a three-member commission, headed by JS Verma, a former chief justice of India and human rights lawyer. It received 80,000 responses and delivered a landmark 630-page report in 29 days, calling for the law concerning sexual violence to be modernised, removing terms such as "intent to outrage her modesty". New legislation failed to fulfil many of the report's recommendations. Since then, the number of reported rapes has increased hugely, as more women come forward.

The juvenile is serving three years. Two of the convicted men are appealing against their sentence, a process that could take years. The judge said they should hang because "this is the rarest of cases". Except that it isn't. It is one of many. Just over two years after Jyoti's rape, a woman was raped by four men, beaten, her eyes gouged out. Jyoti's father, a man of shining integrity, says of his daughter: "In death, she lit such a torch … whatever darkness there is in this world should be dispelled by this light."
