So here apart from the deadly disease, India is suffering from THE COVID-19, there is also something in our society, that is eating the inner core of the safety of women and making it hollow, is RAPE. You will be surprised to know that, every 15 minutes, in our country, some people try to play with the sentiments of women, by harassing them, eve-teasing, etc, and when it comes to the worst stage its RAPE, and you will be surprised to know that, According to the research of National Crime Bureau, there are several cases which are related to rape, but they are not known by anyone, and there are no accounts for such Mishappenings.
According to the past instances-NIRBHAYA RAPE CASE-2012, which is counted in the worst tragedies of India, where a girl was brutally raped and murder, where the whole nation united to protest, against such an attitude of violence, has got a ” breath full of relief” after 7 years. The day, Friday-20-03-2020 will be marked in the history of cases, where it took 7 years for the justice to be delivered, but from the moment, the guilty died ” Everything is going to change, as this death sentence has created a deterrent effect on the life of the people, where one will think 100 of time, to take a step forward to commit such a brutal crime.
Now talking to the people of another side, let us not be weighted on one side, because to feel alive in this era, we are required to construct an equilibrium and that for- people often criticize the government, the lawmakers, etc for such an act, like talking about this case, it took 7 years, there was criticism everywhere, and even the worst of the worst is that lawyers who fight for the defendant side, are actually fighting for their lives, because people do not try to understand, but they only want to Act, and by these acts and using their Rights of freedom and Speech, they try to misuse it, by making it difficult for such lawyers to survive.
So the important thing that should be understood by each and everyone is that, will there be any case law or proceedings possible, if there will be no lawyer from the defendant side to fight the case, will the Human rights in our country will be protected, Can someone assure, that the punishment will be awarded only to the culprit?. Not, because these proceedings may take time but justice is assured.
And giving you an eg of a movie –section 497, a true and virtual clip, proving the fact, that it is not necessary that, whatever you are watching with your eyes is true, as it is for laymen, but for the owners of justice, it is required that they may look on both sides.
In the end, justice is served, creating a deterrent effect, and giving a tight slap on the people who were criticizing and making it spicer for all the newsmakers. So one fact is proven, there is no higher authority in India except the judiciary, so instead of criticizing them, let us try to understand the reason behind their steps, which will make these steps easier to take in one breath.
