Rape, is a major challenge for our country’s honor. Because in our country where women are found to be Goddess and there where they are considered to be worship. In that country that much rape related incidents are shame-full for us. And being so large, as hard as it is not in any country, the country gets even more shy. And we provide a chance to other countries to laugh at our civilization that women are goddess in their country. And they rape with God . and they think, in their country, God is not even safe.
So when such people are present in our country.For them, the system of law was also made in the Indian Penal Code. Which is derived from Section 375. Which defines the rape. And tells. When and in what circumstances would the rape be applicable.
