A Tribal woman was allegedly gangraped by 10 people, including her husband, and paraded naked and forced to drink urine in front of her minor son following a land dispute.

      Saying her 'name' does not destroy a girl. A rape does not destroy a girl. She has a right to a life afterwards. People thinking it 'destroys her image' and she is 'tainted' is half the problem. These women are survivors. Not Victims. And as for the 'image' of 'India' - stop worrying about the 'negative image' and worry about the state and reality of the country.

        crimes against women require very strict laws . It is the fear of severe punishment that keeps such crimes under control. Rape in its nature is worse than murder .
