“Beti Bachao 2.0”  

“Beti Bachao 2.0”  

India is talking about women empowerment but are we serious?

The pet project launched by Prime Minister Shri Narender Modi “Beti bachao beti Padhao” (BBBP) Yojana (save daughter, educate daughter) was to save and empower the girl child is making waves all over the nation.   REALLY?


Sadly and shockingly, the news of 21 year old Delhi girl Karuna ,who was not saved by a single passer on the streets of Burari in Delhi when she was stabbed 30 times by a Psycho-stalker and her killer walking free in broad day light is also making waves all over the nation.

We think the Prime Minister Modi have to re- launch this  scheme especially in delhi where he has to make Delhi people understand that beti bachao doesn’t mean saving daughter from infanticide but in every  brutal or harassing situation which most of the delhi girls faces in day to day life while traveling in buses ,metro or walking  through streets.

If you come across the statistics of crime against women in Delhi you will find that the crime  has increased  against last year in eight months only(till august).

  •  Rape (IPC 376) – 1489 cases in[ 2016] against 1473 in [2015]
  • Assault on women(IPC 354)- 2911 cases in [2016] against 3588 in [2015]
  • Kidnapping of women – 2563 cases in [2016] against 2641 in { 2015}
  • Dowry death-  108 cases in [2016} against 84 in {2015}


When asked from Delhi women about their safety in delhi there were hardly any positive response.  ” When i go for college & work, I always have safety concerns for myself after hearing incidents happening in Delhi every other day” says Mehak a  Delhi University student who studies in Maitreyi College and also works late at night. 


Every incidents which happens is to blamed on women for thier obscenity or thier attire. So after this Delhi incident who is to blamed people or the murderer??
