Rape Free India state level stakeholders Consultation held at Bangaluru: Vimukti Pothnal
On 6th of October 2019 30 likeminded NGOs from Karnataka came together at Jain collage, Bangalore to discuss the one of the biggest issues which the nation is facing today is safety of women and children. Rape in India is a National Emergency. Despite strong legislation, our children and women live a life with fear. The absence of political will, accountability and social responsibility to combat rape is dismal. Through the power that we hold in our vote, we must demand that those who seek our vote must commit to creating a new India, a ‘Rape Free India - a Rape Mukt Bharat’.
