Everyone Is Asking Why Not Death Penalty For All Rapists. This Twitter User Gives A Sensible Answer

There is no denying the fact that India needs tougher laws to tackle crimes such as rape and the trials should also take place in fast track manner.

It seems that central government has made up mind to make some amendments in the law as they have approved an ordinance that provides for death penalty for the accused if found guilty of raping a minor up to 12 yrs of age.

Now the minimum punishment for rape of females above 18 will be life imprisonment while earlier it was 7-10 years of severe imprisonment. The minimum punishment for raping a girl under the age of 16 is 20 years and it can extend to life imprisonment while the minimum punishment for raping a girl up to 12 yrs of age is now 20 years and it can change to life imprisonment or death penalty.

Twitter is happy with this ordinance and here’s how people reacted:

However, some people are raising questions as to why there is difference in punishments for raping a minor and an adult while the pain and agony are the same in both the cases.

Check out some tweets:

A Twitter user tried to answer these questions in a pretty good manner. Here’s what he tweeted,

“I respect govt’s ordinance of death penalty for girls below 12. But I saw many people asking why there’s death penalty for only girls below 12 years of age and why not for all. I would just like to keep my point in this case.

There are chances that adult girls might tell a lie out of one-sided love or infatuation but a girl of 12 would rarely lie about her rape.

I would definitely say that rapists of adult girls should also be given death penalty but only if their crime is proved otherwise few people can misuse this law and it will be injustice to some innocent people.”
