    As expected typical Indian response.Blame others for your own misery.

    Bhaisahab when was the last time you heard of two young girls in the US who didn't have toilets at home and had to goto fields to relieve themselves only to get gang-raped and hanged by a mango tree ?

    From my understanding of US history it has never happened in the past 200 years.Yes mob lynching of black men used to happen till 1920's but thats a different issue.

    Rape cases in the US is not worse than India.Indian rape statistics is a typical hoodwinking statisics like poverty reduction statistics.

    That same statistics claim that UP and Bihar have one of the lowest rapes in the country and that Civilized states like Goa and Mizoram with very high HDI have one of the highest rapes in the country :rofl:

    Most agree that rapes in India is atleast 10 times higher than being reported.

    Im not sure who is the worst but this below seems to me that attempted rape in India is reaching
    a new level of brazenness ;-

    I don't think anyone is "blaming" the US for Indian misery or Indian problems.

    But we are blaming the US for being needlessly patronizing and sanctimonious. And they deserve blame for that.

    Did anyone ask for their opinion or advise? I am only worried about what the UP govt. thinks and what they will do, I don't care two hoots for what the American government thinks or does.

    This seems like a planned attack and perhaps a revenge since the Judge may have passed some judgement which irritated some criminals.

    Now criminals are taking LAW into their own hands literally.

    But how can you tackle this when Criminal Baap-Beta are hell bent on supporting rapes.

    This is not about US or anyone else. But, it gives some indication about the perception that India has recently acquired in view of the superb law & order situation & gender-sensitivity. Evidently, our tourism competitiveness is pathetic as it should be.

    And to top it, Indians complain about racism in US/EU. Hypocrites of worst order.

    Unless someone can put up stats to show that rapes have exponentially risen over the past 5 years, you get the sense that the Indian English media has become hypersensitive to rape news. Rape was always a sad reality of India, and countless other societies. It's just that now you have an English media that has been mediastaniszed by US (in which the managing directors have been lured away to the US, given toffees (citizenship), and directed to focus on certain aspects of it.

    Through the 1990s, poverty and starvation were how the west humiliated India, now they're picked up on rape.

    How West plays the game :

    1) Focus on some issues of a foreign country
    2) Cover them with so much intensity through various media so that everyone associates that country with those issues
    3) Then, insert own agenda subtly to the mix using "activists" and "organisations" and try to "overhaul" the system

    Arab spring worked out well.

    When you have rape patronizing government at the helm of affairs in the state and a police force which acts at the behest of these rapist and criminals and a bureaucratic machinery which only harasses the victims and gives a free pass to these anti socials to do anything they want,the international community has no option but to intervene in India's internal matters because no civilized society can or should tolerate such ghastly acts of violence.


    In India there is no social justice, women and children suffer immense persecution.. Infact according to Thomson Reuters Foundation India is the worst country in g20 for a woman,worse than even Saudi Arabia,a country renouned for it's 2nd class treatment of women , where a raped woman is punished for adultery.

    Yes rape happens everywhere but why the world focuses on India is because the government,the judiciary and the legislature does nothing or very little to prevent it.

    WASHINGTON: The United States has said it is "horrified" at reports of sexual violence and murders in India and it also applauded the role of individuals, government officials and civil society groups working to protect the survivors.
    "Like so many in India, we were horrified to learn of these violent sexual assaults and murders. Our thoughts are with the victims families during this difficult time," state department deputy spokesperson Marie Harf said on Tuesday.
    Harf was responding to questions on the brutal gang rape and murder of two teenaged girls last week in Uttar Pradesh's Badaun district.

    This Yadav clan of UP has become Kaurav clan and Mullayam is the Dhritrashtra protecting Duruyoadhan aka Akhilesh.

    They have set the stage for a new age Mahabharat where the ruler becomes extremely arrogant senseless and shameless same as Ravan.So where are the Pandavs or Ram? Where are they sleeping? Do they come in Kalyug as well and destroy evil?

    Interestingly this Yadav clan is the same which Lord Krishn belongs to. :shocked: Lord Krishn would have done a Godzilla face-palm to see what his clan has become. :tsk:

    We can only wish the Krishn/Ram comes and execute this notorious Yadav clan and give people of UP some respite from crime.

    I have selected Best Tourism DESTINATIONS for them

    Any way i agree May be Rapes in India are under reported, still NOT some SH** HOLE COUNTRIES where Victims ask 4 Live witness or put in jail for Adultery

    if u compare murder rate(these are some how accurate) then we say Indians are not that much violent as compared to West or Mulla countries
    United States 4.8
    India 3.5

    Re: Violence against women affecting India’s image, tourism report say


    You are right on the issue of tourism but there is something I would like to point out.
    This is OT. The question whether the Yadava clan to which Sri Krishna belonged to exists today is a controversial one. According to our ancient literary texts the entire Yadava clan got wiped out after Shri krishna`s death. So as per the books there should not be any Yadava left.

    However today`s Yadavas claim descent from Shri Krishna. They also cite alternate legends on their ancestry. Now which legend is true I do not know.

    In the Mahabharata itself there is a mention of a curse on the Yadava clan either by a munirishi or by Gandhari during the Mausala Parba(again depends on which source you read). Also when one of Sri Krishna`s friends tells him that he is worried about the future, Shri Krishna replies that he should not worry as our future has been determined beforehand and no one can change it. He then tells the person that he knows that the Yadava clan is going to get destroyed yet he chooses to live on with it. As we later see that this prophesy comes true.
    Anyway I am not 100% confident on this issue.

    I would ask @Virendra to tell more on this issue as he usually knows about these things on history. Also we can create a separate thread on the contradicting stories of our legends which would be interesting.
