Dalits and rape

Rape of dalit and tribal women in rural India is on the increase, so many cases go unreported, the victims of rape or sexual assault don't want to report their cases out of fear. In many cases the rapists are never booked by the police and the vivtim has to face further harassment. Many a times the policemen themselves indulge in sexual assault. Rape is a crime which is committed by mentally sick persons to satisfy their ego, it shows that a woman is made to suffer at the hands of the egoistic abbreated men who under a false myth consider it their right to molest a woman, harm her physically and threaten her of elimination along with her family if she reports the matter to any one. Rural women are always in danger of being raped or sexually assaulted because they are exposed in the fields while doing jobs like picking woods, something to eat or they have to go out to answer the call of nature. The psychology of a rapist is difficult to understand, most of the times he may be under the effect of alcohol or other drugs. Laws must be very strict, lest we may not become a society of rapists
