We might often think that crime is related to murder or robbery only. But let me tell you there are various vulnerable categories of crimes. These include drug dealing, human trafficking, smuggling, rape etc. Among a fore mentioned crimes, some of them are frequently reported while some are done under the table. The victims also do not cooperate with the anti criminal agencies as their respect is at the verge. Rape is one of these inhumane sins. No doubt, we humans are heading towards modern technology with leaps and bounds, but these acts make us no different than animals. The rate of rape is increasing all over the world. The reason of such an increment in the rate of rape is again the same; the sufferers feel shameful reporting such cases. Still, the agencies are working to cease this crime by enforcing law and severe punishments against the guilty. And now, you would be amazed to read that the most developed countries are the most immersed ones in the crime of rape. Here is the list of top 10 countries with highest rape crimes.
No one can ever think this land of beauty can be a platform where the most mean act can take place. A number of women, girls and even baby girls are sexually abused in Thailand every other day. An Australian senior citizen of 93 years of age was accused of rape which shows that no matter what the age is, this gender is not safe.
Belgium is also not lagging behind in the race. An increase of 20% was sighted in the rape rate from 2009 to 2011 and the rate is on an increment up till now. According to latest news, on June 11, 2013, eight different cases of rape were reported on a single day. All this depicts that this country is also indulged badly in this crime.
8) Russian Federation
Russia is also at the peak regarding rape cases. It was reported that even in World War 2, Red Army conducted gang rapes during the war which was the major cause of their defeat. Since then, a number of rape cases are caught and the rate is increasing every year.
1 amongst every 4 women comes out to be the victim of rape in Sweden. This shows that the situation in this country is getting worse up to an extent that in the coming years Sweden would be in top three in the list of top ten countries with highest rate crime. The situation is alarming so the law enforcing agencies should become more active.
An estimate of 240,000 women and girls has died up till now because of this shameful crime. German Catholics have allowed the morning-after pills for the victims. The country moving forward in technology is actually moving really backward in humanity.
It is reported that out of every 3 females 1 is the one who has gone through the torture of rape in her life. And the sad part is this that only 6% of the total rape cases are reported. This shows that the victims here also are afraid of getting notorious due to this act. If a country like Canada can suffer from rape cases, then we can expect anything from the third world countries.
According to a recent report, in Acapulco, on 11th February, 2013, 5 suspects were arrested as they were found guilty of raping six Spanish tourists. Now, not only the locals, but the foreigners must be vigilant enough while roaming in Mexico. A number of other cases are also in the list which makes the situation the worst. This dire situation must be controlled immediately and the guilty must be punished without any exemption.
3) United Kingdom
A number of people wish to live or even visit UK as it is one of the most developed countries. But they surely must not be aware that this country is also involved badly in the crime of rape. A number of taxi rapes take place in UK. And the state keeps on making ladies aware that no single woman is safe in taxi. The most vulnerable case is that a girl was raped 90 times in one week. My Goodness! This all is beyond our imagination. Rape Crisis (England and Wales) is a famous organization working for the awareness regarding this crime. Recently, some of the TV comedians also worked for raising the funds for this organization.
India is the place where sexual assault is rapidly increasing. Recently a medical student of 23 years turned out to be the victim of a gang in a bus. The identity of the girl was not disclosed. She was thrown out of the bus after the rape. She was taken to the Singapore Hospital and she died there after struggling a lot. She told her brother that she tried a lot to escape but couldn’t as the inhumane boys were threatening her of killing. The gang threw the girl out of the bus as they thought that she was dead. A number of protests were conducted against this case. But you would be amazed to know that in spite of all the protests and mourning over this girl, on the same day another girl was being raped by a bus driver. All in all, India must ponder upon this crime seriously as after every 20 minutes, a female is subjected to this sin. This would end up in the destruction of the country.
1. United States of America
Now here comes the super power of the world. But hang on! This super power is at the first position in the race of rapes. Males are majorly the rapist holding a proportion of 99%. Out of all the victims, 91% are females while 9% are males. Out of all, only 16% of the total cases are reported. Outdoor rape is not common in USA rather most of the rape cases takes place inside homes. Girls in the villages are at risk more than those living in populated cities. Almost the quarter of the college girls are reported to be the raped ones mostly at the age of 14. It has been reported that the lady officers in US army also do not feel safe as they are sexually assaulted even at the fields. So if USA has to keep her identity as a SUPER POWER, she needs to come over this crime immediately.
