The world of modernity turning into world of wildness by witnessing increasing women insecurity incidents in general and little and school girls in particular, every day we receive news from different corners of gang rapes against womens whether it is Nirbhai case in India or Zainab in Pakistan. Zainab, a 7 years old girl, from Pakistan who was an innocent and not knowing that her life his filled with life lasting risks. She looks very innocent and her twinkling and innocent eyes with joyous thoughts could never had imagined that her future will be filled with cold blooded murder by a rapist. She was badly tortured as her body marks clearly witnessed congestion excessive accumulation in her muscles, and her tongue was badly contused and injured as it was pressed between her teeth.

There are so many untold and unheard stories when girls have got raped even by their parents, teachers or at working places. It is estimated that about 96% rape victims get unreported. But the question here is why the male folk is not showing a little bit sensitivity or responsibility to deal with these matters why male folk believing itself as rational being is turning into an evil doer beast? Womens are being victimized at domestic as well as school and working places which results which badly affects their different aspects of functioning and can be short-lived or chronic.

 As reported by The Time Spend news paper on October 18, 2015 that in past five years the number of rapes reported each year in Delhi has more than tripled over the last five years registering an increase of 277% from 572 in 2011 to 2,155 in 2016,. Rape is being used just to treat womens as an object of gratification and womens at every step feel themselves and their personal autonomy at risk. In Pakistan in 2002, 30 year old, Mukhtaran Bibi was raped on the orders of Village Council, (serving as a lower judiciary there) on the allegation of that his 12 year old brother had sexual relations with some women (here again the women has been made victim for the crime also done by male). The abuser are neighbors, teachers, relatives even at some cases their own parents, 90% of abusers known to victims but there are being threatened to share this with anyone and only 10% are strangers. 

The likelihood that a person suffers suicidal or depressive thoughts increases after sexual violence.

·         94% of women who are raped experience symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) during the two weeks following the rape.

·         30% of women report symptoms of PTSD 9 months after the rape.

·         33% of women who are raped contemplate suicide.

·         13% of women who are raped attempt suicide.

·         Approximately 70% of rape or sexual assault victims experience moderate to severe distress, a larger percentage than for any other violent crime. 

 Womens survive but survives in the fear of incidents like this. The females face lot of social problems present in the society for which every male is responsible whether it is sexual harassment, rape, dowry deaths, spirit attacks and other such issues. So the question here is when the male folk should get mature and try to be accountable and to live a responsible life? When they will allow females to enjoy their own rights without any fear? Why some males feel that females are living on their mercy? When authorities will become accountable and responsible to ensure security of womens?

 What was the fault of Zainab? Why she couldn’t find the home streets safe to walk on? Only a seven years old girl who does not knows what is right and wrong, who never could have imagined that she will be the victim of these cruel and wild, insane wild beasts. The abuser  has been identified as her neighbor?

So I think the human soul should wake up to challenge and stop the crimes and war against womens. Rape as a weapon of war is a crime occurring on a massive global scale that has to be stopped. Not only does sexual violence in conflict lead to devastating physical and psychological ramifications for survivors, their families and communities, it is a severe human rights violation constituting an act of torture, a war crime and/or crime against humanity. The rape is definitely one of the major causes the keeps womens away from participating in decision making process.
