Equally important measure needed - DECLARE JUDICIARY AS A ESSENTIAL SERVICE . Courts Should Function all 365 Days in a year and should function over longer duration in a day (say upto 8 PM) to enable the working class to participate in judicial processes and cases involving them (without their taking a break from work)
Anwaar >> Why not have a joint UPA/NDA bill and expedite passage?
So long as SAINT Sonia is ruling at the help,there is very little chance of UPA reaching out to opposition on any matters of national importance.
Government is trying to pass draconian laws to coverup pathetic implementation. It should first introspect why lakhs of cases are still pending, and the role played by the police, government, politicians and judiciary in this. Clamour for death penalty or castration will do more harm to the cause of justice - Rapes will be followed by murder.
It is a welcome move. All the parties should come together to contribute to this or any such bill and help in passage.
Chemical Castration will be more of a punishment rather than a preventive measure. It may only prevent further rapes by the accused. Laws need to have a deterrent effect also. These rapist in India's Northern belt are mostly the uneducated who do not read newspapers or are aware of Law. To deter them from committing crimes against women, the accused need to be publicly executed like in Islamic countries. Only then will these potential rapist be aware and think twice.
