A few months ago, a young girl was gangraped in a moving bus, in the presence of her male friend who also got injured badly. The girl passed away after fighting for her life in a hospital. This recent shocking incident of a rape of a 5 year old in the capital has once again brought this issue to the forefront. Everyone knows that the women of this country are not safe. But we tend to forget about this once the media finds a new story to hound. Discussions begin afresh after a fresh shocking incident is reported. This callousness  on our part as a society, is why the rapists go scot free. The number of rapes only seem to go on increasing day by day. Even 5 - 6 year olds are now not safe in modern India. 

What is your opinion about the punishment for rape?

1. Life imprisonment

2. Death Penalty

3. Castration with 10 years of Imprisionment

4. Any other option you think is better
