According to Harvinder Singh's documentary, 250 women in the UK are raped daily.

Days after government banned the BBC documentary India’s Daughter, based on December 16 gangrape, that apparently labelled India as a ‘country of rapist’, an Indian man has released a documentary titled ‘United Kingdom’s Daughters’ that reveals the situation of rapes in western countries.

According to Harvinder Singh’s documentary, 250 women in the UK are raped daily. The also documentary suggests that one-third of Britons believe women are responsible for rape, a claim made by one of the convicts Mukesh in the December 16 gangrape in the BBC documentary.

Singh’s documentary also claims that killing figures are low in the UK as women do not resist rape. Mukesh had also admitted that had the girl not fought back or resisted, they would have not killed her and just beat up her male friend who had accompanied her on the night of December 16, 2012.

Singh claims in ‘United Kingdom’s Daughters’ that rape is a global phenomena and the mentality of those committing the heinous crime is same all over the world.

    There is no doubt that systems in the UK are inadequate, but no solicitor or barrister would ever make the statements made by the defence lawyers in the Delhi rape case. In fact, they would be prosecuted for incitement to violence and no doubt lose their professional status. In fact, this happened to a judge here who expressed his personal view that a victim of rape had responsibility for her rape due to her dress and intoxication. Knowing that women and children in the UK struggle to get justice does not make the revelations in India's Daughters any easier to stomach, particularly when professional legislators make the kind of ignorant statements to camera which were shown in this film.

      Rape happens is everywhere.UK won't ban this doentary I am sure. Indian men commit all the crimes and put the blame on the women, not only in India, this happens in most of the Asia countries. We find fault with shows, advers and movies that use'obscene language' and show explicit scenes. Why not with rape and rapist? . Grow up you Indian men, in India and globally. Get your priorities right, before u point fingers at others.

        Really? Is the answer of one wrongdoing is to shout out and ask the others to shut up. Wow impressed with the w ideology. Wrong is wrong, no matter where and we should all stand up together rather than pointing out fingers. Dilutes the real message that at the end of this w episode of pointing fingers and finding excuses, we move the focus from the suffering.

          Well said. Pointing finger at others does not make problems in India less severe.

            Kudos to Mr. Harwinder Singh as he has rightly exposed the British culture through his doentary. That should be the spirit of every Indian. 'Holier than thou' atude shall not work hereafter. At a global level, comments to be opposed by comments, cartoons by cartoons and doentaries by doentaries. That is fair.

                SAVE BJP FROM FRUSTRATED “SINGLE” WOMEN LEADERS As a result of women empowerment, today, a third rate UK’s Daughter ( Udwin) has the cheek to tell BJP govt. to hang their head in shame. Yet the same woman doesn’t demand queen elizabeth and Britain to hang their head in shame and apologize for rape of india for centuries and macre of Indians in jalianwala bagh and macre of muslims in Iraq etc. ? If BJP continues to give more rope to women, they will hang BJP by the same rope and destroy it. Kiran bedi destro it already in delhi. Draupadi,kaikayee, sita ,supanakha all led to epic wars and destruction all around. So, BJP must take it easy on naree-sashakti karan. It is because of some ic feminists that India and indian men have been insulted worldwide even though more rapes are happening in all so called advanced countries like uk,france,usa etc. Clinton,Cosby , ex-IMF Chief are shining examples of western rapists. Rape must not be condoned. But indian feminists must also not be allowed to destroy BJP and India.

                    Irrespective of stupid advocates rapes still happen in civilized world (UK, USA etc.) In fact rapes occur almost on daily basis in these countries. Some times victims are dead and some time left alive. Its a criminal act and w country must not be painted with one brush. People of UK and USA are most ignorant about other countries. Most of them still think there are only beggars and snake charmers in India. I had to point out many times that India has many poors but als has people ( Mukesh Ambani) who live in the most expensive private home (worth 2.2 Bilion) in the worlds. It is important that reporting should be balanced so that people around the world should have an informed opinion.

                        Good job Arvinder ! Next do the following if you can 1. Correct typos as someone already pointed out here and make sure the statements in your doentary are as correct as possible. 2. Ask that stupid NDTV to be your media partner too. If they reject ask them to give the reason in writing. 3. Ask Sonia singh of NDTV to have a discussion on your doentary exactly the same way as she had on India's daughters. 4. Do a release of your doentary in New York and ask Frieda Pinto to be special guest. If she refuses, ask her to give the reason in writing. Release all this correspondence, people of this nation would know who the anti nationals and Patriots are within India and outside. You will remain a hero.

                          Some facts about the English society. Having lived there for about 5 years in the early years of this century, these are some of the my observations/experiences: We understood that lot of children in schools were living with foster (or step) parents; the reason being that the child was born and first the father left the mother and child. Then the mother got another boyfriend and left the child and step father (or rather step guardian). After that the step father got another partner and thus the child is living with two total strangers in their life. These 2 people continue living with the child because of the benefits regime that operates. If you are living with children and can convince the authorities that you do not have sufficient money, the government gives you money to take care of children and also a free house to live. This example is not from some poor very badly run area/school, this is from one of the top Government schools in the city. A school where middle cl parents would send their kids to school. BTW middle cl was a bad word in England under the Labour government. Another news that I saw in the paper there is now reported. A nineteen year old boy had 5 children from many different partners and he lived in a 5 bedroom house provided for by the government. The government also paid him ~UKP 1800 per month as living expense as the boy has 5 children to look after and he cannot work for that reason. A walk in the city center of any town/city on a weekend evening will show you the English culture in all its bad aspects. Drunkenness, rowdy behavior, crime, racism etc. Due to the peculiar culture system that prevails, teenagers are the most unruly of the potion. If you see a group of teenagers or youngsters on the street, the best option available is to move away from their path or you are likely to be abused or worse. Grown-ups in England are not much better. They will make fun of everyone else and try to show the superiority of their culture and nation. Americans are to be ridiculed as Yanks, Germans are considered humorless and worse, French are always reminded that their was saved by the British in WW2, poles, scots and other smaller European nationalities are considered stupid, South Asians are s. Have we forgotten how Shilpa Shetty was treated on Big Brother! However, it seems that rest of the European countries give it back as good as they get from the English; sample this from Spain "Who walks bare chested in the mid day sun in summer; mad dogs and Englishman". Another example of their administration, I called the city council office around 11 am and asked to speak with some person who is supposed to be available on the phone. I got the reply that person is not in office yet please call later. I tried again at around 12.30 pm and got the reply that the person has gone for lunch, I called back again at 3.30 pm and got the reply that the person has left for the day. This is not to say that everything is bad in England. The time I spent there was very good and I did not face any apparent discrimination and fair treatment of people is part of their system. The authorities will try and help you to the best of their ability. However, what I want to bring out is that no society is perfect and I dislike the fact that somebody should make a doentary with a sanctimonious atude and looking down on our society when there are obvious problems in their social system. Not against the doentary as such; but, please, do not be preachy in your interactions with our media.

                            Sorry about the typos in the previous comment. But I believe that it got the message through. Another example that I can present is what someone narrated to me. There was a young girl who was going to the University but did not have enough funds to support herself. Her parents/guardians were unable or unwilling to support her University education. She went to the city council to get free housing that she was enled for. They refused saying that there is a big waiting list. They advised her that if she was a single mother she could get a house immediately. She was very upset with this response and said that the city council policies are encouraging people to become single parents or else they do not get the benefits.

                                    Why just because there are more rape victims in UK, the Indian rape victims should not be highlighted???. Why we have to see ulterior motive behind every doentary done by a UK citizen??? Why can't we allow every Indian to see the doentary and form their own opinion...???

                                      Challenge Indian journalists who celebrate everything that comes and go against India and its civilization to take a statistical survey of how many rapes & molestations are going on in Islamic nations including middle east - it all remain hidden and unknown to the public under their strict laws.
