    Why does Britain have a parliamentary group focused on Kashmir?

    You can only speak rubbish like this to the media if you know that captain and coach both still have full confidence in you.

    "It is OK to go for runs. As a bowler, you can't end up bowling extraordinary spells every time you go out to bowl. The idea is that if I am going to go for 20 runs in a particular over, then I should be able to bring the runs down to 16, 14 or 15 in the next over."

    The situation in India, re: sexual assaults/rape is much worse than what any official piece of document tells you.
     
    On and off, I work with an NGO which is mainly involved in litigating for various issues that women (mainly of the lower end of the socio-economic ladder) face, I may not have exact numbers, but there was a backlog of more than 1000+ separate instances of rape/sexual assault. Mind you these do not include cases of sexual assault/ and attempt to murder. And a good 35-40% of these were unreported to the police. That is the women ( at times young girls too), or someone they knew first came to the NGO and then with a lawyer went to the police. A good 15-20% of the instances involved the police barfing on filing of an FIR. 
     
    The cops would simply refuse to file FIRs ( mainly in case of domestic sexual abuse) saying stuff like ghar ki baat apas mein suljhao, don't come here or your life will be ruined etc etc. At times they would outright lie about the victim being late to complain (some victims take a lot of time to open up and complain) saying it has passed the statute of limitations. In India, rape has no statute of limitations. There have been instances when the cops asked the victim to eat, shower and then come to the police station in the right attire/frame of mind to give her statement. Then they ended up telling her that now all proof has been washed off. All this in spite of POSCO. All this after the Nirbhaya case.
     
    Without a lawyer, at best, the cops would get hold of the guy/guys who committed the rape. Most of the time this doesn't require much effort as the victim knows the rapists and can help the cops locate/identify them. The cops then trash them and extort money from them for the rest of their lives. The victim would have no semblance of justice. Or compensation. On the other hand the cops would show zero empathy to the victim and there have been cases where victims have been hit when they refused to move when shoo-ed away. In my observation, for any woman who is not  at least from the middle class (and has the necessary awareness of her rights), expecting justice in cases of sexual assault in this country is like chasing a mirage. 
    One could argue that a response of the cops and the general sense of let down (and humiliation) is just as pernicious to the victims self esteem than the act of rape.
     
    This is about women whose FIRs weren't filed. Not to mention the multitudes of cases where the women don't report the crime. And all of this is in Mumbai and its environs, where the cops are supposed to be 'sensitized'. Even on our ICF, I read a lot of people cheering when the 4 suspects in the veterinary doctor gangrape/murder case were extra judicially executed by the cops. The same set of cops wasted 3 hours asking humiliating questions to the doctors relatives when they could have possibly saved her. Yet there is no judicial enquiry into any of this. Not that I know of at least.
    a @coffee_rules  or @Mariyam may find India (relatively) safe because we are not from that category of people whom the cops can't take lightly.
     
    If India aspires to be a superpower of any sort, we must first make justice dispensing and policing a lot more robust. Have to agree with what @Muloghonto said in another thread. Better forensics, better policing, more fast track courts etc.
     
    Also, re: Sweden: rape in Sweden is not just penetrative sex without consent. It includes groping, other sexual acts and at times 'severe' sexual gestures aimed to ruin the victims peace of mind/self esteem. Hence the spike in their statistics. If India were to include these acts in Rape statistics and not barf on FIRs, we would definitely top the charts.
     
    I never understand the fixation people have with ranking for women safety in the world. Okay, we maybe not be the worst but we could be in the worst 10-15. How does that change anything? The idea is to better the lot of our womenfolk here and give them and all poor people (irrespective of gender) some chance at justice.
    If we get bad press for rapes, we deserve it. The situation is bleak and needs to be called out.

    I don’t think anyone wants to compare which country has more crime, especially regarding crimes against women. You are right that in West, everything is not as hunky-dory as people portray it to be with regards to this topic and beetle is right in her place of India having failed largely in preventing such crimes against women, whether they are committed by outsiders or even family members. It’s just a matter of different perspectives based on where one lives, which cause us to formulate such strong opinions and we tend to lose focus of the actual problem. 
     
    Basically, what I’m saying is- No, India is not defined solely by the law and order situation in the country with regards to crimes against women, but it affects more than half the population so it will reverberate continuously until there are  changes into how women are looked upon by the society they live in. Indian society, atleast from my experience, puts more burden on women to give proof of innocence and subjects them to a more rigorous upbringing, where subservience to men is indoctrinated at a rather young age. This may not be the case in urban centers, but from my experiences of visiting rural areas in my home state of Gujarat, I would say it is still pretty much practiced there. 
     
    Now, coming to the issue of men being privileged over women, I’m afraid this is not an unique problem for India. Having experienced the frat culture here in American universities, I can vouch for that. Also this problem doesn’t have a quick solution either that can come from through societal changes. In the long-term, the best bet is to create a more friendly environment for women to be able to take care of themselves and that can only come through public policy. 
     
    Lastly, the biggest problem that India has is the pathetic law and order system. It’s no secret that India’s police and judiciary are woefully understaffed and overburdened with lakhs of cases that are pending since decades. Unless Indian govt doesn’t seriously look into police reforms and expanding the number of lawyers and judges, there will be more Nirbhayas and their families languishing for justice.
