The Editor,

Beijing.

Sir,

I read with interest a commentary by Lin Xu, in your edition of December 30, 2012, making some negative remarks about the state of India as a liberal democracy in the wake of the widespread public protests, particularly by the students of Delhi against the gang-rape of a 23-year-old girl in a private bus on the night of December 16, 2012.

Crime against Women in Delhi: What Next?

 

Paper No. 5342                                             Dated 31-Dec-2012

Paper No. 5335                                                            Dated 24-Dec-2012

By B. Raman

In all democracies, the public has a right to demonstrate in public in a peaceful manner, but it does not have the right to demonstrate where it will, when it will and how it will. The police can impose reasonable restrictions on the right to demonstrate for maintaining law and order.

Crime against Women

 

Paper No. 5330                                                  Dated 19-Dec-2012

By B. Raman

In our country, crime against women is not treated seriously by the police. Its prevention, investigation and prosecution are given low priority. This was so during the days of the British. This has been so since we became independent.
