Rapes and Gang-rapes in India

Two girls were allegedly raped in a moving car by unidentified men in this satellite town, a senior police official said today.

The victims lodged a complaint that they were offered a lift in the car outside a Gurgaon pub last night where they had attended a party, Deputy Commissioner of Police (East) Maheshwar Dayal told reporters.

One does not get to hear of rape/gang-rape in Islamic countries like Afghanistan and Pakistan. Even eve-teasing in these countries is rare; forget sexual harassment (there is honor killing though, which too needs an analysis). What is the reason behind the difference?

One striking difference is "purdah". This impels one to jump to conclusion that men in the region are like vultures; one sight of naked flesh and they dive to "consume" it!

God help such men!
