As Indian lawmakers (Incidentally some of them ex. Indian Cinema Stars from an industry famed for dubious relationships and fornication) mulls legalizing ‘Teen Sex’ or ‘Teen Fornication’ euphemistically called ‘Teen Consensual Sex’, in a country where teen prostitution thrives against law, there is curiously a ban on ‘Teen Marriage’.
The Union Cabinet will take up on Thursday the Home Ministry’s draft anti-rape Bill that seeks to lower the age of consensual sex to 16 years from the existing 18 years, to replace the ordinance.
Curiously, the Indian law bans a male below 21 years and female below 18 years of age from marrying.
In other words India is heading towards the ‘Gutter Western Culture’ of ‘Free Sex’, ‘Live-in relationships’ with scanty or no protection for girls and women involved, the danger to Indian Female is becoming manifold due to shortsighted politicians, some of whom are from ‘Cinema Culture’ and are removed from the reality of the Indian 99%.
After the Cabinet passes the draft Bill advocating tough legal measures to check crimes against women, it would be tabled before Parliament for passage as Prime Minister Manmohan SIngh had committed before the Budget Session.
Other than the ordinance, the draft note also contains recommendations of the standing committee on Home which too was deliberating on the Bill. Now the ordinance and the criminal amendment Bill revised by the parliamentary committee have been put together in one comprehensive piece of legislation.
A senior Home Ministry official confirmed that the Cabinet is slated to take up the draft for approval. The draft Bill has agreed to the recommendation of the Justice Verma committee to retain word “rape” instead of “sexual assault” in the definition, but has set aside the recommendation on making marital rape an offence and take action against armed forces personnel, who enjoys protection under the AFSPA.
The standing committee, in its report tabled in the Rajya Sabha , suggested death penalty in rare cases of rape and for repeat offenders, but had agreed with the ministry’s view of not calling marital rape a crime in its recommendations. The committee felt that criminalising marital rape would weaken traditional family values in India.
The above video in this news clip clearly depicts the plight of young girls pushed into prostitution with law enforcement agencies giving a damn about the lives of young women being damned.
A brothel-keeper buys a minor girl for a price anywhere between Rs 50,000 to Rs 1 lakh and earns over Rs 23 lakh in the next five to six years.
In Mumbai, Sapna’s (name changed) hopes of a better life dimmed when a policewoman on a “routine vist” to the dank room in Jamuna Mansion brothel advised the 13-year-old to stay on, assuring her that it was the safest place for her.
Having done her bit, the policewoman pocketed the ‘hafta’ (bribe) from the ‘gharwali’ (brothel-keeper) and walked out.
If this is the reality, the question that automatically comes to one’s mind is by relaxing sexual promiscuity further and banning teen marriages or banning people below 18 years from marriage, won’t it be like adding fuel to the fire, as India implement the new law to permit Teen Fornication?
