|Crime against Womens In India|
b) Western Influence
c) Lack of Awareness
Our civilization taught us to respect women. We have been taught from our child hood to respect our sister and mother. Yet newspapers are full of many types of crime against women. Headline of yesterday, news of today, two girls Nisha Sharma and Farzana stood boldly against the demands of dowry from their respective in laws. Saying no just before marriage has stopped the crime against them. Timely step has saved them. But what about all other Nisha Sharma and Farzana.
A big question, who is responsible for crime against women. Male dominance is there but along with it there is lack of education and poverty. Women are themselves unaware of their rights and laws framed to protect them against different exploitation and crimes. Recent trends show that there is increase in the crimes, but on a positive note number of them have been stopped due to awareness and reports made to police. Human Rights Violation against women and also home violence is been taken up seriously. Government and NGOs are working to frame programmes and plan to deal with all these problems.
