Are they legalising crimes?

Readers Pulse

It is quite strange to know about the government’s decision to bring down the age of consensual sex. The columns ‘Ultimate Success’ and the ‘Editorial’ of the Radiance, 24-30 March, thoroughly discussed the merits and demerits of the issue and suggested the possible ways to stop or at least reduce crimes against women. Though the government has taken back its decision yet one may not understand how the team Chidambaram gave its nod to trim down the age of ‘consensual sex’ at a time when the society is facing the menace of ‘forced sex’ i.e. rape. On one hand the government is bringing the law to the privacy of a husband and a wife with legalising the marital rape. While on the other, it allows the 16(or18)-year-olds to have pre-marital sex. Do our moral values and Indian civilisation not suit our ministers and policy makers or are they legalising their ‘crimes’?
