"It is so sad and shocking no matter where the crime and sin happens. Every crime and sin is inhumane.
Every crime, every and any where should be taken and addressed adequately, seriously, lawfully, promptly and the most important of all truthfully regardless of gender, race, religion, age, ethinicity etc., etc., without any prejudice at all levels to ensure humanity to flourish in peace and with peace of mind.
Executioners and behind the scene planers of any crime and all involved at all levels by commission and or omission need to be brought to book most expeditiously and honestly with valid facts.
But who would do that except deeply; honest, humane and dedicated wo/men a rare breed whose voice is burried in the democratic majority of countless Dharyodhnas, Ravnas and even the worst than them especially in this Athi Ghor Kaliyuga.
Detection, punishment, rehabilitation, prevention, vigilance and to ensure all that, good conduct are all very important measures to contain, crush and stop the crime.
There is no; school, college, university and or any other institution where education to be a good human being is given as a dedicated subject and or curriculum which as a matter of fact does not exist.
The preventive measures have to begin some where and there is nothing more; important, elementary and effective than lovely, peaceful, happy home with parents as the teachers to nurture humane values to be strenghened and carried out in the institutes of learning at all levels from kindergarden to old age and beyond. This must be ensured by the society and the; social, educational, legal and admnistrative branches.
The cure and prevention of dhouraachaar is sadhaachaar that would ensure shishtaachaar!" a quotation of Dr. Singh on, 'Human Nature and Development'.
You have very right fully said, "Until and unless the citizens take the responsibility, it is very difficult to nab the culprits."
Seasons greetings and best wishes for a peaceful and prosperous new year.
