Islamabad: The Indian government should do "something serious and long lasting to bring about an atmosphere that is conducive for women to live in peace and security in India", said a Pakistani daily following the rape of a young woman in a moving bus in New Delhi.

An editorial in the Daily Times said that women have shed their restraint and are now more vocal about their rights, especially when it comes to self-esteem and the right to live with dignity.

"The gang rape of a 23-year-old student in New Delhi, that too in a moving bus, has ignited anger of unprecedented proportions in a society where people seldom talk about rape, leave alone protest against the crime," said the daily.

The victim is still struggling for her life.

The editorial said: "Rapists generally go scot-free primarily because of the reluctance of the victim to come forward, as well as the attitudes permeating the law enforcement agencies and society at large."

"...The mistreatment and abuse of women is a particular problem in Delhi and northern India," it added.

The daily noted that a "stiflingly patriarchal social mindset, a brazen culture of male power, a general disdain for law, a largely insensitive police force and a rising population of rootless, lawless migrants are only some of the reasons" for crime.

It went on to say that "unless you are rich, you are more than likely to face humiliation and indignity in India".

"Rape incidents are blamed on pornography, the increasing influence of western culture, women wearing western dresses and going out with male friends. This line of contention is no more acceptable to the people and they want the culture of rape eradicated, which has become an instrument of social and sexual intimidation used against women," it added.

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had to appear on national TV to request the protestors to stay calm.

"However, the general resentment does not seem to be poised to disappear any time soon unless the Indian government really does something serious and long lasting to bring about an atmosphere that is conducive for women to live in peace and security in India," the daily added.

1: The fact is that our society does not think about the safety of men and concentrates only on women. The fact is that more men die due to criminals than women. Then why this gender discrimination???? Instead of concentrating on people's safety, our women-biased society wants everything only for women. Shame.

2: The Pakistani daily seems to have forgotten the Malala episode. Pakistan Govt. nurtured "Talibans" did the act. This tells how good women placed in Pakistan society. Its not our intention to undermine the heinous act of rape, but Pakistan Govt. and its media has no moral right to comment on Indian affairs. Its better for them to settle their issues first before commenting on some one.

hehehe absolutely... muslims have least respect for women period !.. no offense but thats what the truth is ! there is vast and considerable amount of violence against women in arab and muslim dominated countries, these go unnoticed bcoz islamic laws dont completely safeguard women even giving them an unequal status... and of course there is abandonment of freedom

6: I am Indian only. But how can we hide such news when it has become International news. At the same time daily should also have reported the mass protest by college students and others.
