When there is no fear of the law, with rapists often let off lightly, India can never be safe for women.
Unfortunately, some newspapers even gave away the name of the actress who was abducted and molested.
That is the quality of journalism in India today. If the identity of the victims is not protected they cannot be expected to show courage in fighting the scourge.
Rapes happen even in the U .S. But that can be no consolation for the victims. For every one incident coming into the open, thousands go unreported in India.
Fast-track justice with the most stringent of punishments must become the norm if the country is serious about dealing with crime.
