Death penalty cannot be the shortcut that reflects our callousness so sharply

The move for death to the rapists of victims below 12 is not going to prevent the macabre diabolism of the kind Kathua personifies. What vulnerable targets of perverts need is not the corpse of the villain but ceaseless vigilance and more than that, a thoroughgoing system of criminal investigation, accurate booking, quick — not hasty — prosecution and proportionate sentencing so that crime does not escape

Why the Asaram rape case verdict matters | Opinion

One of the main reasons why self-styled god men such as Asaram get the courage to abuse women and indulge in many other kinds of illegal activities because they think that they can get away, thanks to political patronage and huge fan following. It’s high time political leaders across party lines disassociate themselves from such fraudulent men, and send out a strong message to society.
