Two out of every three children in India are physically abused, according to a landmark government study.
Commissioned by the Ministry of Women and Child Development, the study says 53% of the surveyed children reported one or more forms of sexual abuse.
This is the first time the government has done such an exhaustive survey on the controversial issue of child abuse.
Abuse of children, particularly sexual abuse, is rarely admitted in India and activists have welcomed the study.(BBC 9 April 2007)
Now Human Rights Watch on this issue.
Child sexual abuse is disturbingly common in homes, schools, and residential care facilities inIndia. A government-appointed committee set up after the New Delhi attack to recommend legal and policy reform has found that child protection schemes “have clearly failed to achieve their avowed objective.”
The 82-page report, “Breaking the Silence: Child Sexual Abuse in India,” examines how current government responses are falling short, both in protecting children from sexual abuse and treating victims. Many children are effectively mistreated a second time by traumatic medical examinations and by police and other authorities who do not want to hear or believe their accounts. Government efforts to tackle the problem, including new legislation to protect children from sexual abuse, will also fail unless protection mechanisms are properly implemented and the justice system reformed to ensure that abuse is reported and fully prosecuted, Human Rights Watch said..

found a reasonable good one which analyses the issue of rape.
That is from The Washington Post.
Following are the reasons cited.
Fewer Female Police Personnel.
Even the quality of women Police available is disheartening.
I have found the women Police to be more heartless than a Policeman in terms of character and humane approach to family issues brought into Police Stations.
These women Police ensure that they get a good bribe to settle the issue even if what is agreed upon is totally unjustifiable.
Lockup rapes are most common.
The condition of the mentally challenged is beyond words.
No mechanism is in place in India,even if it is there, it seems to be a great job of not letting people know that it exists.
Staffers at his new home held him down and punched him in the face and groin, Price said. When Alopaeus’s efforts to transfer him stalled, Price said his desperation led him to a step aimed at speeding his release.
Residents at the Florida Institute have often been abused, neglected and confined, according to 20 current and former patients and their family members, criminal charges, civil complaints and advocates for the disabled.
These sources and over 2,000 pages of court and medical records, police reports, state investigations and autopsies contain an untold history of violence and death at the secluded institute known as FINR, which is located amid cattle ranches and citrus groves in Hardee County, 50 miles southeast of Tampa.
Patients’ families or state agencies have alleged abuse or care lapses in at least five residents’ deaths since 1998, two of them in the last 18 months. Three former employees face criminal charges of abusing FINR patients — one of whom was allegedly hit repeatedly for two hours in a TV room last September.
The complaints underscore the problems that 5.3 million brain-injured Americans are having finding adequate care. Their numbers are growing, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as better emergency medicine and vehicle safety mean that fewer die from traffic accidents, bullet wounds and other causes of traumatic brain injuries.
The long-term ills range from memory loss and physical handicaps to the inability to control violent anger or sexual aggression. Yet because insurance benefits for rehabilitation are scarce, less than half of those who need it receive it, according to the Brain Injury Association of America.
Organized as a company and operated for profit since 1992, FINR has become one of the largest brain-injury centers in the country, with 196 beds. Three rival providers say they know of no place bigger. Multi-site operator NeuroRestorative, owned by a holding of buyout firm Vestar Capital Partners, handles more patients.

Molestation by mob is increasing.
For the reporter it is more important to film the event than to save the girl!
Th Media’s deafening silence on the reporter’s action of Filming the incident instead of helping the victim is strange.
It is the Independent that has highlighted this issue.
If the media which is staffed by the educated(presumably)and the socially conscious is silent, how is it that Sex education is going to solve the problem, when normal education does not kindle the human quality of Compassion?
SCENES captured on film by a television journalist of a mob molesting and stripping a teenage girl in a city in north-easternIndia have triggered outrage across the country.
Many people are demanding to know why the journalist filmed the 30-minute assault, rather than trying to help the young woman.
At least four men have been arrested by police in the aftermath of the attack on a 17-year-old fashion student.
Officers said they were able to identify a number of the alleged participants from the footage that was broadcast on television and subsequently uploaded on to the internet.
The media channel has defended the actions of its staff.
The incident in the city of Guwahati has again highlighted the dangers and threats often faced by women in India, a nation where sexual harassment is often referred to by the media as ‘Eve-teasing’.
Yesterday, television channels repeatedly broadcast the footage of the beating and assault of the young woman, said to have taken place after she had been celebrating a friend’s birthday in a bar.”
I am of the opinion that the absence of swift deterrent punishment and erosion of moral values as the reason for the type of roguish behavior.
Unless we address this problem , we would be like the economists who blabber on economy where no results would be forth coming sans sound bites.
“A teenaged girl was pulled by her hair, lifted up, thrown down, beaten up, thrashed, molested, groped, slapped and stripped in full public view for 30 minutes on Monday night at a busy road near the Christian Basti area in Guwahati by a mob of around 20 men.
I am beginning to think if my family is atall safe in this country. It is hu some xpert saying lack of Sexrting to see a teenager to be treated in this manner.The video of the incident that was leaked on YouTube, shows the mob – consisting of around 20 men – beating the girl before stripping her.
Its a shameful act from the city which was known for tolerance.

Now 87 cases have been filed against a Nun for abusing girls.
It is always a problem when natural instincts are curbed instead of being regulated
The nun, whose name has been withheld by the State to protect her victims, appeared at Sligo Circuit Court on Tuesday.
Her case, thought to be the first of its kind in Ireland, has been listed for mention again on May 22nd.
Newspaper reports say that several of the nun’s alleged victims were in court for the brief hearing.
Those present heard the barrister for the accused woman complain about the delay in the trial. She said her client had been charged in January 2010.
In response, Foynes said a ‘voluminous’ number of files had only been given to prosecution solicitor Hugh Sheridan last week after the transfer of the case from another county

If this is not enough a Teacher is rumoured to be a Porn Star.
Haydock Intermediate School officials released a statement saying the teacher, whose name is being withheld, is not facing criminal charges — but that the school considers the activity to be inappropriate.
“It has been alleged that one of our teachers is depicted in at least one pornographic video and possibly others on the internet…These sites contain extremely graphic and inappropriate pornographic material.”
KTLA-TV reports that officials were alerted when students showed administrators a pornographic video allegedly starting the teacher.
“These allegations do not involve any Oxnard School District students,” the school’s statement says, according to KTLA. “We are asking teachers to discourage the children from searching for and/or visiting these inappropriate sites. We ask that you be particularly vigilant over the next few days with respect to the Internet content being accessed by your child on his or her telephone or other Internet-ready devices.”
Superintendent Jeff Chancer told the Ventura County Star his main worry — other than students trying to search for videos of the teacher — is that it will disrupt productivity.

Deterrent punishment, Islamic style is the only solution, to stem the rot.
Police in Columbus, Ga., arrested 39-year-old Dalina Nicholas, of Jacksonville Beach, Fla., on March 1 on a warrant accusing her of child neglect. She was locked in the Muscogee County Jail. Quinn Brooks, 56, and John Hagans, 47, are behind bars in Jacksonville Beach in connection with the case, accused of paying for sexual favors with the child. A third man, 51-year-old Norman Thompson, is being sought by police.
According to a report by Jacksonville Beach police, the investigation into the case began on Jan. 7, when a homeless man flagged down a patrolling police cruiser. The man said he knew of a young girl, later identified as Nicholas’ daughter, who was being sexually abused by several men, police said.
The homeless man told police the abuse had been ongoing for about two years and said that he had witnessed Nicholas use drugs. The man also said he was present once when Nicholas allegedly accepted $20 from a man and told her daughter to get naked and lay on a living room mattress so the man could have oral sex with her, police said.
The witness, according to police, said the girl had confided in him that she was being sexually abused and asked him to “help her make it stop.”
Nicholas, confronted by investigators at her Jacksonville Beach apartment, denied her daughter had been sexually abused. She told police that she had been abused as a child and would “know if her daughter was going through the same thing,” the police report states.
The 6-year-old girl told police detailed accounts of sexual abuse that she had suffered in her home, by various adult males, police said.
