“If this taught them childhood it will change the outlook of men towards women”, she said.
She also said that cases like this happening at Assam and Uttar Pradesh and other places Dalit women need more sensitive handling by law enforcing agencies, Civic society and government agencies, as it involves not only sexual assault on women but also taking advantage of her poor economic background as most of them are not qualified to seek legal remedies.
Ashma also added that if crime against women does not stop, especially those belonging to Dalit, OBC and minority groups, the day is not far when large chunk of our country’s population will have no faith in our legal delivery system with a bigger plan to help the victims of such crimes.
