The Mahabharata war was fought on the insult of women but what is happening with women today. The kind of brutal rape that happened to minor girls in Ujjain, Rajasthan and Delhi recently is a matter of condemnation for any civilized society. It is sad that how people remain silent after seeing such acts. The police administration, which is responsible for maintaining security, also does not show much activeness in such matters. . If the police of the place where the girl went missing had been active, such an incident could have been prevented from happening.
Well, if we ask the truth, the entire society is responsible for such incidents. If we go into history and consider the past events as true, then even during the Ramayana period, women were not safe because if women were safe then Ravana would have Sita would not have been kidnapped. The entire Ramayana rests on the foundation that if Ravana had not kidnapped Sita, then Shri Ram would not have had to fight Ravana. This clearly means that even in that era, women were not safe.
We see the same situation even in the Mahabharata period when Draupadi is disrobed in a crowded auditorium and even the greatest warrior present there remains a mute spectator. It cannot even be imagined how shameful that moment must have been. This is a different matter. It is true that even the Mahabharata war was fought for that insult but that insult to women could not be reversed.
Even today, barbaric incidents like Nirbhaya keep happening in our society. The society had neither changed before nor is it in a position to change today. In fact, as long as the animalistic tendencies are alive within men, it is difficult to control it. Today The legal process of our country is so complex that no criminal ever gets quick punishment and in many cases he is not punished at all. In fact, if you are safe in the society, it is only at the mercy of luck. These days, anyone A criminal shoots someone and goes away, no administrative system is able to stop him. This is the bitter truth of the society today.
However, women themselves are responsible to some extent for the misbehavior that happens to women. The way women cross the limits of superficiality in the name of openness, it becomes inevitable that some kind of misbehavior happens to them. When you know that creation has created a soft body for women then women will have to protect themselves from situations where there is a possibility of you being abused.
If a very beautiful woman walks alone on the road at night, no matter how civilized the society is, no one can stop her from happening. Today, in the name of education, girls study away from their homes. There is no kind of monitoring on them. In such a situation, most of the girls break their limits and have fun openly and in such a situation, if something bad happens to them, then they themselves will be held responsible for it.
You cannot escape by just blaming men. Men are naturally promiscuous because the hormones inside them keep motivating them to be promiscuous, but this promiscuity sometimes becomes a burden for the society. Therefore, it is the duty of women not to provide that opportunity to men. In which men are forced to do any kind of insult to them. Today in our country, the legal provisions in the case of rape of women should be very strict in which the culprits should be given such punishment in public in which they will be tried ten times before committing any such act. Think about it. Cases of rape of women will have to be brought under a separate judicial system.
However, we have also seen that nowadays many women extort money from people by making false allegations of rape. These cases also need to be dealt with strictly. Many false allegations are made in dowry cases and innocent people are implicated. It happens. There are two sides to any law even if they don’t want to. Some people misuse the law. In fact, unless our police system is completely honest, even the best law will prove to be meaningless. Today the police system of the entire country is immersed in corruption.
If you need to go to the police station, then believe me, without bribe, no work is going to be accomplished there. Today, criminals roam freely in the society because they get the protection of the police. If the police system is honest, then what is the point? Even a criminal may be seen in the society.
Today there is a need to modernize the entire police system. There is a need to make radical changes in the recruitment of policemen to their training. There is a strong need to change the system created during the British era. Policemen should be the most capable and honest people of the country. They should have the highest standards. If there is a policeman then people’s attitude towards him should be such that he is the best person in the society.
Today the situation is such that we consider every policeman as the most corrupt person and this is true in 90 percent of the cases. Along with this, it is also true that the maximum workload is on the policemen. Now they have also started getting holidays, otherwise earlier they had to work all seven days. Overall, we can definitely say that only honest police system and self-control of women can provide them security.
You cannot put the entire blame on society alone. Keeping women completely covered in burqa is also an injustice to them. If today women have to remain in burqa for their safety, then the situation cannot be worse than this. This means that the entire male class is like wild wolves. What kind of a system is this in which women have to wear burqa to protect their honour. What women will wear should be left to their discretion. Yes, it is true that they will have to set their own limits for themselves. Provocative clothes definitely distract men, hence one should never add fuel to the fire. .
Women will have to move in harmony in the society. They will have to set a Lakshman Rekha for themselves without any restrictions. There may not be any social restrictions on women, but every woman will have to remain rational herself. If women become the ideal of the society. So surely men will also have to change their behavior at some point of time. For matters like rape, both men and women will have to understand their responsibility. The decreasing rate of women’s population is also responsible for this. Today in the society, marriage is becoming easier for men. It is a matter of concern.
