Modi should pay more attention to women's issues: Lagarde

Christine Lagard PM Modi

"It is my position", she said.

Earlier at the World Economic Forum meet in January, Ms Lagarde said that she had suggested PM Modi to mention the women of India enough in his speech to the summit. Thereafter, in London, he insisted that rapes should not be politicised.

The protestors raised slogans "Hate Murder, hate Crime: No more".

"Silence does not help, when nation is on fire and people are traumatised", he said.

They further asserted that Kathua and Unnao are not isolated incidents. "Rape flies in the face of Hindu values, and thus compels us to offer condolences and compassion to victims and their families, and simultaneously work to ensure that the law and law enforcement work impartially and efficiently to deliver justice".

The scholars also pointed out that numerous rape incidents in the recent past have occurred in states with BJP governments, and all of them after the BJP assumed power at the Centre. "Hopefully it will continue to position India in order to reap the benefit of the upswing, continue to develop its internal markets and generate this excellent growth rate of 7.4 per cent, which is one of the highest in the emerging market economies", Lagarde said. The young girl has alleged that a lawmaker had raped her last summer.

The members of the Indian American community turned up for the protest in large numbers in total dismay after knowing the heart-wrenching details of gang rape and murder of Asifa in Jammu and Kashmir, killing of Unnao rape victim's father, and the rape and killing of a juvenile in Surat.

They were also protesting the rape of a teenage girl in Uttar Pradesh's Unnao.

The gang rapes and murders of the two girls sparked nationwide outrage and demonstrations throughout India.

India's government has chose to prescribe the death penalty for people convicted of raping girls under the age of 12 to combat an increase in crimes against women. The criminal law amendment ordinance seeks to amend the Indian Penal Code (IPC), the Evidence Act, the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act to introduce a new provision to sentence convicts of such crimes punishment of death.
