The brutal rape and murder of an 8-year-old in Kathua, an alleged rape by a BJP legislator in Unnao and the brazen attempts to obstruct justice in both the cases have shaken India's conscience. With protests across the country, a condemnation from the United Nations and an open rebuke for the Prime Minister by a group of former civil servants, it would seem the society isn't ready to sit back and allow such atrocities to continue. On this episode of We The People, we ask: with the number of rapes having increased by 50 per cent since 2012, has nothing changed in India since Nirbhaya? Does India need more laws to deal with the worsening rape crisis or is better execution the solution? With about a third of the lawmakers charged criminally, does the rot go deeper than it appears?
