Re: The US rape rate is at least 3x higher than India's...
Quoting ANY official statistic about India is like using a sieve to count drops of water in a monsoon downpour. Official figures give you no clue as to the reality of the situation. Any official can have a field day with such figures.
On the other hand there are numerous reports from Indian women AND Indian women's support groups who have had directly the opposite experience to your implied lack of rape in India.
From being completely ignored by police and legal officials, to being threatened, forcibly shut out or shut up, targeted for: physical abuse, torture, further rape and even murder.
And by whom?
By the relatives and friends of the accused including: men from the woman's own family, village, town, police etc.
And you have the audacity to quote India's official rape statistics?!
Rather than asking yourself, ask a NON-paternalistic Indian man OR any non-elite Indian woman about the prevalence of rape, and you will be reliably told that rape AND abuse of females is a far bigger problem than any official statistical lie from police, legal or government sources.
