Combating Violence against Women



Even after so much of turmoil on Delhi gang rape which had taken place five months earlier, the spate of such incidents is increasing day by day. Recently, the whole nation faced the ignominy of brutal rape of a five-year old girl in East Delhi on 17 April and subsequent savage brutalisation of the poor soul. To introspect the reason for the increasing brutality in the society, a public talk on “Combating Violence against Women: The Way Ahead” was organised by Students Islamic Organisation of India (SIO) at JNU on 8May.

The guest speaker Mr. Bharat Dongra, eminent author and columnist, addressing the gathering, said “In the multi-culture world there are different views on sexuality; some follow liberal views on sex while others believe in sex within the wedlock but the common thing which is condemned in every society, is forced sex or rape. Besides strict laws and active policing, ban on pornography and alcohol need to be implemented. The reports tell that growth in pornography industry increases the sexual crime against women and in many cases the rapists are found addicted to liquor and pornography.”

Advocating moral values in society, he said, “Due to very moral crisis, society has been facing such tragic incidence, hence ethical values need to be upheld.”

Mr. Shariq Ansar, National Secretary, SIO raised the rape issue in conflict areas like Northeast, Kashmir and Naxalites-influenced areas and said, “Why don’t media speak out when the Manipuris, Kashmiris and Adivasis women are being raped by Armed Forces and Security Agencies? Such state sponsored crimes are being used as a tool to suppress the voices against injustice and brutality.”

Regarding the prevailing nature of sexual crimes against women in the society he emphasised the role of family in the character building of a child.

Mr. Ejaz Ahmed Aslam, Editor-in-Chief Radiance Viewsweekly opined that sex is the essential need of human nature but it should be maintained with respect and responsibility within the martial boundaries.

As for obscenity, he said, “Sexual crimes are the by-products of uncontrolled lust desire that take place when nudity and obscenity become the emerging trend of society. Hence it’s high time we cultivated new generation with good values and morals.”

The programme was coordinated by Ms. Sumaiya, Research Scholar, JNU. Mr. Mahroof, Secretary, JNU SIO expressed his gratitude to the speakers and audience.
