Issues:- Recent chief justice statement on rape victim when he asked rape accused to get marry with the raped girl

  • Why are these remarks contradicting with the ethos?
    • It makes women good whose ultimate goal is to get married.
    • Shows patriarchal mindset of society.
      • How
        • Women are seen as commodities and they have no right except the right to obey the master of house.
    •  Marrying a girl cant provide justice against the injustice which was made earlier.
    • It may set a precedent and open the Pandora box.
    • Case of European Commission of Human Rights in C.R. vs U.K. where the court concluded that a rapist remains a rapist regardless of his relationship with the victim.
