The rate of rapes has increased across the country. It is a matter of great concern that the government has failed to ensure security of women. According to the statistics of couple of months, the rate of rape has crossed all the previous records. Now the situation is that no one can ensure us that our female family members will return home safe and sound after their work. It is impossible to imagine how a father feels when his 5-year-old daughter is raped and murdered. How many women have to get killed before our law enforcers play their due role and take steps against these beasts? The perpetrators should be given exemplary punishment. It is a matter of regret that we have failed to create a congenial environment for women in a country where the prime minister and the main opposition leader are women.
