Dear Dr. Manmohan Singh.
I am an Indian Citizen residing in United States. Like many I am sad and disturbed by the recentRape in Delhi, Specially the one on DEC 16th of Jyoti Singh Pandey as the name has been released by her father to the News networks and the one I read about the 3 1/2 year old being raped in her School.
Here is where I have issues with the GOVT. I understand we are governing a nation and not just a state or union territories, but this problem has persisted for years in Delhi, There were Appox 635+ cases last year in Delhi and these are just registered cases. Infact it’s a problem we need to tackle in the whole country considering we don’t have laws protecting WOMEN. Please see theRAPE MAP of INDIA. http://blogs.wsj.com/indiarealtime/2013/01/03/a-rape-map-of-india/
As someone who is in charge of the Nation, it’s your Prime duty to Protect it's citizens. We need to Protect the WOMEN from these ANIMALS who think they can get away with such ghastly acts.
We also need to educate our men and women in Uniform & Politics, Who think women dressed a certain way are asking for it or they are meant for Household chores. In my opinion there is no place for such people who are there to Serve & Protect It’s citizens. Every such Politician and Cop should be stripped off thier Position.
I would like to add that every citizen of India also has a duty to help people in need & learn about Civic duties . It is disturbing to hear and i quote Jyoti’s Boyfriend.
“My friend was grievously injured and bleeding profusely,” he said. “Cars, autos and bikes slowed down and sped away. I kept waving for help. The ones who stopped stared at us, discussing what could have happened. Nobody did anything.”
After about 20 minutes, three police vans arrived, but the officers argued over who had jurisdiction over the crime as the man pleaded for clothes and an ambulance, he said.
Finally, he said, they were taken to a hospital.
STRICT LAW will help curb this problem. POLICE should always figure out jurisdiction issues after they have taken care of the victim. I URGE you sir to Help the citizens and you will see that the nation will get behind you only to give back more.
I like everyone in the world would not be here if it wasn’t for a WOMAN who gave me birth. My Mother has been a huge strength to me and I have had 3 WOMEN as great teachers (My MOM and SISTER's) who taught me to respect women. I expect everyone in my country to be the same.
The World is watching & I still have hope that things can change as I am an optimist.
PLEASE SAVE the CHILDREN & WOMEN of INDIA. THEY ARE THE FUTURE. #SAVE INDIA.
