Moral Bankruptcy is Worse than Financial Bankruptcy. And we are heading towards BOTH. #MumbaiRape. Shameful and Sad.
There is NO fear of Law. Rape cases go on for years. Nobody is Hanged for Rape. Politicians are interested in Power. NOT Welfare of People.

Just heard the news about a gangrape in Mumbai. Disgusted!!. Please publicly hang these people. Sickened with these repeated acts by cowards
Sad validation of the fact,that NO city in India is safe for women.It is after all the same prevention/enforcement mechanism in use all over

So angry. How did we let India come to this? A country that treats it's women so badly that NO woman has escaped some degree of molestation.

Our legal system is so weak,RAPE PUNISHMENT does not even qualify as punishment & the time taken to conviction is a JOKE !!

So now what do we do take candles & crowds & walk the streets & sign petitions again in protest and plead for our safety.. WHAT?!

There is no "fear of Punishment" encouraged by our Judiciary system. Justice is delayed or denied …what happened to Nirbhaya convicts????
