On #girlchildday let me highlight that how rapes have become every day news but hardly accused are proven guilty & convicted.
Here's a thread to highlight & ask them for real #BetiBachaoBetiPadhao .
Some rape statistics I shall share along with Dalit rapes that are ignored.
Recent stats quoting sources .
More than 32,500 cases of rape were registered with police in 2017, about 90 a day, according to the most recent govt data.
According to the NCRB data, 4,15,786 rape cases were reported across India between 2001 & 2017
On average, 67 women were raped every day across the country during these 17 years, or, in other words, about 3 women had been raped every hour.
While 16,075 cases of rape were reported in 2001 across India, this number rose drastically to 32,559 in 2017 - 103% increase .

As Parliament amends #POCSO to include the death penalty, a closer look shows that political posturing contrasts with reality. Politicians are often the ones protecting the rapist-killer. Pinki Virani takes a look at this scenario. #FPthreads 1/18
In November 2013, after more than seven months of work, Pinki Virani filed a PIL regarding cases which involved crimes upon children by adults. There were four identified cases – four children in different states murdered by five rapists. 2/18
All cases had been awarded the #DeathPenalty by all three tiers of courts and yet, all of the convicted rapists were still very much alive, living on tax-payers' money in jails, till 2013; the SC had awarded their death sentences in 1999, 2003, 2005, 2008. 3/18

#WhenYouAreRahul your internationally reputed college will publicly confirm your MPhil Degree.

When you are #DufferModi your college will block RTI for your "Entire Political Science" degree, which no other student got 🤣
#WhenYouAreRahul you dont have to be afraid of press or audience, and can bravely handle any question without pre-screening.

When you are #MeekModi you will only talk to bootlicking sycophant journos through pre-screened questions.
#WhenYouAreRahul you will respect your opposition and their necessary role in a democracy.

When you are fascist megalomaniac like #DemonModi you will rant for an opposition mukt country & use CBI, media and other institutions against them in your lust to retain power.
