The sentence for rape should not be lesser than life imprisonment and under no circumstances, even ' good behaviour' during the jail term should the rapist be released because an offender is a time bomb ready to explode with newly gained confidence of getting used to living in the jail, its no more a big deal anymore, full knowledge of the loop holes within the system like knowing how to get out of jail and tolerance to social stigma of being a rapist. Whatever holds back a man from raping again does not hold true for the rapist who has served a term in the jail. The sentence is not just about punishment as it is about protecting society. The rapist of the Mumbai minor who killed the little girl and dumped her in a public toilet was just released after 5 years in jail for another rape of a minor in 2013. The jail authorities were impressed with his good behaviour during his term and set him free. They are as much responsible for the rape and murder of the minor. Please do not send your girl child for any errands. Do not nurture empathy for any man who is a rapist if you are in the law enforcement agencies like police, lawyers and judge. If you see small children unchaperoned, assist or accompany them home to parents and family. Do not be tolerant to child pornography, this is related to escalation of violence against children. Police if you find a rapist in your jurisdiction make it your life goal to keep him behind bars. Practice your kindness on animals instead.Just like development agencies, NGO and Government of India partnered to reverse the HIV/AIDS epidemic in India its time to address rape of women and children.
