Fight Epidemic of Sexual Violence Against Children

Target: Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India

Goal: Ensure stricter laws and the allocation of all possible police resources to stop the rape of India’s children.

An eight-month-old baby girl is in critical condition after being raped, allegedly by her cousin, in Delhi, India. The baby was visited in the hospital by chief of the Delhi Commission for Women Swati Maliwal, who described the girl’s injuries as “horrific.” Ms. Maliwal tweeted that the baby’s cries could be heard through the hospital as she underwent a three-hour operation. Police have arrested the baby’s 28-year-old cousin.

Based on date from the National Crime Records Bureau, India has been experiencing a vast and rapid increase in incidents like this one. 19,765 cases of child rape were reported in 2016—an 82% increase from 2015. This terrible crime has sparked widespread outrage, and many are calling for justice and for better protections for India’s young girls. As Ms. Maliwal says, “What to do? How can Delhi sleep today when 8 month baby has been brutally raped in capital? Have we become so insensitive or we have simply accepted this as our fate?” Sign below to demand that India stop allowing this heinous abuse, and protect its children from sexual attacks.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Prime Minister Modi,

The brutal rape of an eight-month-old baby has brought to light the epidemic India is facing of sexual violence against children. This is not the first incident in recent years of a horrifying sexual attack against a baby, and data indicates an alarming rise in these sorts of crimes. It is your responsibility to protect India’s children and ensure that justice is given.

The eight-month-old baby girl suffered “horrific” internal injuries and is in critical condition at the hospital. This case has rightfully caused widespread outrage. This reign of terror and rape culture must not be allowed to continue. India’s children must be protected from rape and sexual violence. I urge you to ensure that police resources are allocated and stricter laws are put in place to fight epidemic sexual assault against children in India.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    THIS IS ABOMINABLE. I WOULD HOPE THAT THIS MAN WILL BE PUT TO DEATH. HE WILL DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN IF HE IS ALLOWED TO BE FREE. THE MOTHER OR FATHER OR BROTHER HAS EVERY RIGHT TO HUNT HIM DOWN AND KILL HIM AS HE IS RABID.
