Do you think that the punishment of death to the rapist will increase the security of girls?

No campaign on the moral values can teach the rapists what punishing them with a death sentence can. Yes, you are right that rapists have always failed to feel the pain a victim suffers, but they are not alone to fail in feeling this pain. Each of those who have not suffered this unfortunate crime fails to realize the trauma. Had this not been the case, people would not have needed to come out on candle marches and pleaded to punish the criminals with the death sentence. Death sentence is the one and only solution to deal with increasing number of rapes in the country.

Our belief in justice is retained by the Supreme Court as it announced the death sentence to the rapists of Nirbhaya, a professional of Delhi, who was brutally raped and murdered in 2012. We need more such verdicts from the courts in India because the laws here are proven to be unreliable when it comes to women’s safety.

It was somewhat consoling when Supreme Court commented, "brutal, barbaric and diabolic nature of the crime could create a ‘tsunami of shock’ to destroy a civilized society.”

What is saddening is the fact despite the condition our country is in, there still are people who have contrary views. What is even more saddening is that the most of these people are big ministers and officials, governing our country. It is because of these people that India is deemed as the most unsafe country in the world for women by the latest Rheut reports.

It will certainly help the society but in my opinion the problem with rapists is that they don't understand how extremely painful it is for the victim. No matter how much a girl tries to stop therape, she cries/begs to let her go, but they fail to see the pain.

The problem with rapists is their behavior. We all had witnessed in the past what happened in the Nirbhaya rape case and now, Asifa. Death penalty, political assertions,candle marchesand public outrage do not change the criminal behavior of rapists, if they did, the Delhi outrage in the Nirbhaya case would have created some fear in the minds of rapists and such rape cases wouldn't happen again.

Rapists’ behavior towards women hasn’t changed and it will not change any time soon unless we start working on ground levels. Government should start suchcampaigns that teach them moral values and change the criminal mindset of rapists.
