By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bangaluru : Rape is national and international problem .Need to be resolved by whole world leaders .Police need to go by Indian Penal Code .Rape is an individual crime and committed by individuals and police need to book FIR on them and how school managements are booked under IPC for rape committed by individuals . If a Police Constable does rape in police station can they book COP and DG&IGP in the crime and file FIR on them because they head the department .A rape is done by one driver and all drivers are punished .Then why they are booking FIR on school managements and company managements is the question asked by people of India at large . India has its own culture and all parents need to take care of their sons .India need to transform the legal social and moral approach to contain rape and ultimately eliminate it from occurring and find out and get at the root problems and solve it..Rape is heinous crime on woman. No sane person would quarrel with the principle that sex without consent is rape and should be severely punished. But while sexual consent is widely defined as the absence of a "no” (except in cases of incapacitation), anti-rape activists and many feminists have long argued that this definition needs to shift toward an active "yes.” Or, as the California bill puts it: "Affirmative consent” means affirmative, conscious, and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity. ... Lack of protest or resistance does not mean consent, nor does silence mean consent.
Rape is crime .It is pertinent to note that any amount adult films pornographic content any amount of provocation and any amount of skimpy dress does not give anybody license to rape any woman .Let the people stop talking about dress code .Let us only talk about rape code .Whoever is committed crime of rape need to treated as criminal and he need to be punished as per the new law.
