Women's Day 2024

Women's Day 2024 : Today in the world, women are creating new dimensions of success. On the other hand, many women are becoming victims of heinous violence and crime. Many times, so many misdeeds are done to women and girls that the entire global society becomes ashamed. For example, women are kidnapped. They are abused, burnt or brutally murdered.

But do we ever wonder who those women are? Who are the people with whom violence happens or who do violence to them? What is the root cause of violence? How can this be ended? Such incidents cannot be stopped merely by registering criminal cases and giving punishment, but there is a need to create awareness on a large scale to stop such incidents. Obviously, most of us never consider these questions.

On the contrary, whenever we see or hear news of violence against a woman. So instead of raising their voice against that violence, they impose various types of restrictions on the women, sisters and daughters of their families. Which itself can be called a type of violence. This is one reason why International Women's Day is celebrated on 8 March. International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women is celebrated every year on 25 November by the same United Nations. The purpose of this day is to make people aware of the violence against women around the world. But awareness campaigns remain only on paper. And crimes against women keep increasing.

Women are no less, they even file false cases

It is not that only men are responsible for the condition of women. The woman herself is responsible for her situation. Nowadays many such cases are seen in the country. The cases of misconduct which turn out to be lies. Such cases even reach the courts. Many times the person concerned has to go behind the bars, but later he gets relief only from the honorable court. In one such case, on February 5, 2024, Allahabad High Court made a strong comment against those who filed a case in a case of misconduct and then retracted their statement. This was a case of gang rape.

In one such case, while granting the bail of the accused with conditions, the High Court said that whoever has lodged such an FIR has turned hostile. Action should be taken against him also. This should absolutely happen, so that the woman who files false cases also knows the law. Allahabad High Court said in its comment that such cases come before the court every day. In which initially primary registration is done under Rape, POCSO Act and SC ST Act. Discussions continue on that basis. And both money and time are wasted.

In these types of cases, the victim's family also receives money from the government. But after time passes the trial starts. So he becomes a traitor by joining the other party or does not support the prosecution's story. This kind of trend should stop. Whoever has registered such primary. Legal action should be taken against him also. This is not the first case. When the court has made such comments. Such decisions have also been taken in rape cases registered after love relationships. In which the court held that consensual love relationships cannot be rape.

Even in Haryana, the victim and father had retracted their statement.

Recently, a similar case came to light in Haryana on February 27, 2024, in which the Punjab-Haryana High Court gave a big relief to a 22-year-old youth who was convicted of raping a 15-year-old minor and suspended his sentence. . The youth was sentenced to 20 years by the fast track court of Ambala. While filing the petition, Ambala resident Shashi, through advocate Vasu Rajan Shandilya, had sought suspension of the sentence pending appeal against the fast track court order of January 17, 2023. Punjab and Haryana High Court, while giving its verdict after hearing all the parties, said that the victim and her father have denied the rape.

In such a situation the punishment can be suspended. In this case, the victim's father had complained to the police that his daughter had been kidnapped. The police had recovered the victim from the possession of the petitioner on 31 May 2020. The victim had given a statement that the petitioner had raped her. After this the police had registered the case. Later, the victim herself and her father had repudiated the accused. Society needs to think deeply on such matters also. On one hand, there is a need to change the thinking in the society regarding girls and women. On the other hand, girls and women should also think that their false allegations can spoil a person's life.
