"I want the revised anti-rape law to be in the name of my daughter. It will be an honour for her. If there is some problem in doing due to constitutional provisions, Centre could amend them. It will also be a respect of public sentiments", father of the 23-year-old Delhi gangrape victim said.
"We will be sad if the anti-rape law is not named after my daughter", he said.
Demanding timely justice for his daughter, the father said that he was satisfied with the Delhi Police action.
The father of the victim also demanded that the Uttar Pradesh government set up a hospital in his village stating that it was wish of his daughter to do so in this backward village.
The Home Ministry has given indications that the revised law, which is expected to be stringent and facilitate speedier justice, is unlikely to be named after the girl who died last Saturday after battling for life for nearly two weeks.
Union Minister Shashi Tharoor had favoured naming the revised anti-rape law after the victim.
Tharoor had got support from former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati for his proposal.
"If the family of the victim has given its approval to the law being named after the rape victim I have no objections to it," Mayawati had said, adding "The Central government should convene an all party meeting and take a decision in consensus with everyone".
Self defence is the best defence. Out of 100 cases of women getting raped only 1 case is reported of a male getting raped. Women need to be physically strong too, relying only in strict laws will only reduce the ratio of rape. As computer course is compulsory in school, Government should make a martial art (eg Marma Shastra) in schools where with bare hands one can protect him/herself, if a course is started from 1st standard till their educational career wherein along with all courses compulsory for women to get a job. In this computer age, technology is at its peak, one needs to protect himself/herself too. These barbarians who do these mean acts are psychics or are either influenced by drugs, alcohol or are hormone cravers%u2026 Why cannot we attempt to stop a crime before the crime originates in the first place%u2026 Our country%u2019s future generations should be physically prepared and capable of stopping crimes of this nature. New laws enforced would be only an added advantage. Jai Hi
This is like pissing on other previous rape victims who didn't even get justice. A law against rape can't be named after one person. After all, she was just a victim. it is not as if she fought to make this law or something.
The traditional rule is that anyone under the age of 18 is a juvenile and will be tried in the juvenile court system. However, in certain circumstances, almost every state in USA now allows for youths below the age of 18 to be tried as adults. The rules vary from state to state. 3 Ways to Try Juveniles as Adults There are three common ways in which to transfer a case from juvenile court to the adult system and try the juvenile as an adult. These are: Judicial Waiver - some states give juvenile court judges the power to have a juvenile's case tried in adult criminal court Direct File - sometimes called "Prosecutorial Discretion" - some states give prosecutors the power to decide whether or not a juvenile will be tried as an adult Statutory Exclusion - some states have laws that require a youth's case to be tried in adult court - these laws usually base this automatic transfer on the youth's age, the seriousness or type of crime, and the juvenile's prior record.
she was a brave heart bcoz after suffering so much she still wanted to live.she wanted to tell the world,the nation,the women that they r nt rubber wannabes.she wanted to show the mental strength of a woman that she can fight wid anyone for the justice....she must be honoured
That's all our politicians need! Imagine Laloo rental act, Mayawati education act, Digvijay euro norms!!! With all due respect, a memorial would bring a constant reminder of a girl with a tremendous fighting spirit. Moreover, Nirbhaya,Amanat and Damini are a stronger representation and association to this dastardly act then even the real name of the poor girl!
Considering that the world still doesn't know the identity of India's nameless, faceless rape-torture victim, the fact that her father wants new anti-rape laws to be named in his daughter's honor is ironic and bizarre. The suppression of her name and identity is just part and parcel of India's invalidation of women. Whose face and false pride is being saved in such secrecy?
what is the bravery act she did? how come she deserved to entitled and honored she fought nothing, she is the victim that all. she had been in the wrong time, teasing dress in public, roaming around with wrong company which motivates crime - said by the rape criminals. its gonna motives all the women to be reckless and get spoiled to become a hero of the nation. if women wanna fame, wanna government job, then dress skimpily and room around public night parties and tease men. how does inducing crime is a award wining act? a child fell under school bus though hole in the bus and died which lead to revision of school bus act. why can't name the act after child?
wat the shame as a woman u should understand the fragility of situtions...rapes happen in india very often..but how many times there was outrage on it? hw many times the govt. social media,bollywood and entire india went on street? this was the first time the biggest social movement has taken place in name of her...whole india cried on her death...so what is problem for naming law after her..many roads,hospitals, institutions are named after gandhis....and her father had said this in emotional state...but it seems u failed to underestand it...god bless females in india..god bless woman in india where woman keeps such feeling for helpless victim...
Your comment shows the enabling of misogyny in India.
Horrendous rape in India of 23 year old. Honey sing show cancelled - Yet Sony Leon scantly clad does a new year bash show. Former porn star who perform unnatural act on porn films is feasted and feted by Indians at the same time they say rapes will be reduced if we stick to our Indian culture values.she sends wrong message to rapists . But Indians love her and she is making fortune out of indians.
I agree the new law should be named after the woman who was the victim of rape/violence. It will be a reminder to us of the barbarism perpetrated on her. It will be an utter shame if the law is named after any Congress or other politician! It will also mean a lot to her parents and family as their daughters name will live on - even though she is no more. The government should also open an hospital in their village and name it after the victim.
We have names to roads & streets. We have name to buildings, parks, sea port, airport and now we will have names to law. OMG. Where are we heading to. What happened with girl was wrong but what is being done now in her name is comppletely & utterly wrong, both by her parents & public. Naming law will not help to curb down the atrocities.
An an Indo-American, one of the laws in the USA, is named Amber's Law, which is life imprisonment for two time sex offenders of children. This would be a huge step in the Anti-Rape, but until the police and the judicial system start to seriously prosecute these crime (in a very timely fashion), the law will be just letters on a piece of paper. Just like the same law that states that windows can not tinted on a bus, every law should be enforced. Until India's police and judicial do not enforce every little law, how will they every move forward with anti-rape and anti-violence laws?
This is what Mr. Tharoor also said!Huge hue and cry has been aired against him; for which the congress party has to distance him. People and political leaders are opposing things for the sake of opposing.As the deceased father has also come in support of the proposal now government has to act proactivel.
Good to have laws named like this; but naming bravery award and remembering Chopra children every year in Rashtrapathi Bhavan has not changed rape captial or the policing there - Bill and Ranga were also captured not by police but due to their stupidity of showing a knife to a railway carriage full of soldiers.
Merely naming rape law after a victim is not going to deter would be rapists. Certainly tougher laws are needed against rape, but more crucially a nation wide effort to change the mind set of people with programmes that propagate values against the dangerous human passions while instilling respect for women at the same time. Naming a law should follow the procedure that had been laid down for that purpose. No cogent argument could made out for the demand that a particular law should be named after an individual lest there might be equally valid reasons for naming them when laws are made in the future.
