Made In India
Indian opposition politician Rahul Gandhi is facing sedition charges for a small rhyme that refers to a big problem.

Speaking at a campaign event, the Congress Party honcho said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “Made in India” slogan should be “Rape in India” due to the spate of protests and high-profile cases involving sexual assaults on women, the Times of India reported.

Gandhi is refusing to the apologize perhaps because he knows a large segment of the Indian public believes he’s calling attention to an important problem.

In late November, four men gang-raped and killed a veterinarian, set her body on fire and left it under a bridge near the southern city of Hyderabad, reported the Guardian. Video footage suggested the men had plotted the attack, deflating her scooter tires and then offering to help her. Hundreds of women took to the streets to demand justice.

“Unfortunately, we need something like this (the rape) to shake us to seek change,” one demonstrator told Al Jazeera. “No one addresses the basic issues that are a threat to women’s safety on streets on a daily basis.”

Days later, a second woman, a teenager in Uttar Pradesh was raped and over 90 percent of her body was burned, the Independent reported.

Indian police reported more than 32,500 rape cases in 2017, according to Reuters. That’s around 90 a day. Courts disposed of around 18,300 cases in the same year. Almost 128,000 cases remained pending at the time.

The Hyderabad incident especially touched a nerve because it recalled an attack in Delhi in 2012, when six men raped a 23-year-old student on a bus. The woman later died from her injuries. That incident led Indian lawmakers to strengthen rape laws.

The Delhi student’s convicted assailants don’t appear particularly contrite, however. One recently asked officials not to carry out his death sentence because air pollution was already killing him. CNN wrote that the court is likely to reject his request.

Police arrested the four men accused of the Hyderabad rape. But the alleged rapists never answered for their crimes, at least not in court. Instead, officers shot all four dead under the bridge where they left their victim, saying the men tried to grab their guns when they were taken to the scene of the attack, reported the New York Times.

Some Indians celebrated the suspects’ deaths. Others worried about the rise of vigilantism in India.

Some girls have been taking matters into their own hands since the 2012 incident, forming a vigilante group called the Red Brigades.

Still, a sense of justice being denied happened again recently when an alleged gang-rape victim was attacked and critically burned as she headed to court to testify against her attacker in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, wrote Reuters. Her village was divided over whether the perpetrators should be punished, mostly over caste lines.

Still, also in Uttar Pradesh state, a lawmaker expelled from Modi’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party was tried in a separate rape and kidnapping case. A Delhi court found him guilty Monday, Press Trust India reported.

But as many women in India say in spite of the small victories, the larger one remains elusive.

“Nobody wants to invest in changing the system,” said Sunitha Krishnan, an activist and gang-rape survivor in Hyderabad, told the Associated Press. “You’ve just done some instant justice, closure, everybody’s moved on. And for most people, this is finished. But life doesn’t move on for hundreds of thousands of victims who are languishing for justice. And that’s the pathetic reality of this country.”

In 7 years there are 4 major rape incidents that happenend in India which got national attention. How many such incidents happened in USA in same time period? Why doesn't NYT talk about it? And they are calling it epidemic. Per capita USA has highest rapes compared to other countries of the world. India is the lowest and they are calling it epidemic. Dont you think its idiotic. And you know what is funny the guy Rahul gandhi quoted in the articles has a rape case against him.

And this stupid editor tried to show 1 rape case as 2 incidents. That is what you get for believing NYT.

Yeah so I assert that the rates in the US have gone down actually which is logical given the continuous decline in testosterone in men. But fake/false accusations and moving the goalposts have made up for it to keep the rates steady. Can't speak for India, but in the US most violent crime has been on a continuous downtrend for the past 30 years, mostly for biological reasons. But leftoid politicians are trying to make up for it by importing as many illegals and rapefugees as possible.

Rate is south africa n Sweden is crazy high.

In India, there are hugh protests, so visibility is higher.
In #metoo , hard to tell if it's real or politics also.

Lot of unemployment so people have fun protesting n burning buses.

In 46 muslim countries, if girl report rape, women gets stoned if they can't prove rape. If they were alone its womens fault automatically, since they are not suppose to be out alone without a man. Guessing that's where reporting is low.

On thing I've noticed is that some non-Indians here in Silicon Valley sometimes think India is generally similar to what they see of Indian people living here in Sunnyvale New New Delhi. News alert: in Silicon Valley and on US college campuses, the Indians are selected (generally) from the top 0.1% of the population of India at large.

A few years ago I was watching The Amazing Race with my girlfriend (works for Google, so huge Indian exposure). The show had the contestants racing through some of the more "colorful" parts of India. She couldn't understand why they would "show the worst possible places of India." I had to explain that, actually, that's typical living conditions of the whole country.

The long-term question for those in the US is if the mass India migration here will turn out OK (because we're supposedly only selecting "the best") or if the US will look like India in 50 years.

What infrastructure do you need to report rape? Huge building's or just a phone? There are 650million cell phone users.
Now if your concern is law and order then yes there is problem with it. But it has no relation to infrastructure development too.

Don't get hung up on physical infrastructure. There's human infrastructure too. Those are the ones that make the cities clean and not have shit everywhere. I'm arguing India doesn't have the human infrastructure that is required to actually report rape. It's not about quantity either. It about the quality and controls in place.

I don't always agree with it because it leads to false accusations, but the US has a system where it's safe to report rape and can be quantifiable via rape kits and DNA. I'm admittedly not versed in this topic, but it appears India doesn't use rape kits in most areas https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/rape-victims-still-being-subjected-to-degrading-twofinger-tests-despite-india-s-ban-a9142131.html

That was from Oct. 19th, 2019. This article is not very compelling towards your contention of the OP. Rape seems to be an easy crime in India. Rape happens everywhere, but I'm not sure you're going to win an argument on rape in India being lower than the US. Just sayin'

Indic, don't be silly to compare us vs india at economic scale. British looted everything and took almost, in today's us$100 billion loan on India and left in 1947. Immediately india went back to Muslim rule under Congress party and its Muslim rulers under fake Gandhi name. India only came out Islamic rule about 5 year ago.
Muslim and Left are strong to oppose any freedom and development. Look at what happened when last week they passed a bill to stop automatic Indian citizenship to anyone just got into India. Most of them are Muslims from neighboring Muslim countries. Congress and Muslims rioting entire country. They call peaceful protests and expecting no law enfocement should act.
Muslim and the left are the biggest problems to India.
Now they are coming to US. In few decades US may experience what India is going through.

About rapes. Before compare let me give you some background. People behave differently in different conditions. When I talked to few folks who lived before 60s before freeways were built, families and extended families live not very far from each other. In that setting, everyone knows everyone. Just like most on current India. Rapes should be low. Now freeways are be being built, there's lot of people migrating around. Lot of urbanization going on but there's highly inadequate law enforcement and courts and judges are likely ultra leftist clowns who take 30 years for a simple cases. Society getting complex. The human values are and morals are going down. These are the ingredients for grape culture.
Bsses on news, my estimate is about few hundreds if not thousands rapes per day in India.
Most of them not reported, police rape again if pororted, including court personnel if it ever makes it to the court. Almost zero women get justice.
Even in us lot of women get raped.
This is very sad crime.
One way to reduce the crime is to award immediate capital punishment for the offenders.

The Western Colonization was the greatest wealth and knowledge transfer in human history.

They grew the Indian population by 400%, the lifespan tripled, left knowledge of everything from Chemistry to Engineering to Railroads to Aircraft Carrier Operations.

Not to mention unifying hundreds of city states into a real country.

Then that's the Indian Voter's fault, not the British. Indira Ghandi's martial law, Nehru's direction of agra and industry loans to himself and his rich cronies with endless defaults and cancellations of their debts (but not for the poor farmer), etc. are all Indian Mistakes.

Looks like BJP is doing a good job though, esp. in Kashmir.

Don't let Congress Cucks back in power and things will continue to rapidly improve.
