Stop sexual violence

Incidents of sexual violence are increasing rapidly in our society today. This is a clear indication that our social norms are collapsing and that society is increasingly becoming more and more degenerate. It is a sign of how we have collectively lost sight of our moral compass.

Although we have very strict laws against sexual violence, it has proved to be insufficient. In order to have real substantive change, the way we look at women must change. The belief that women, for whatever reason, are inferior to men has been thoroughly debunked by the many essential contributions of women in our country and indeed by history itself.

Therefore, we must create a society where women are looked at with the respect that they deserve.

And we need to make those changes quickly. So that we can transform our country into one where there won't be any more suffering for another Nusrat in future. All of us must put in our utmost effort to ensure that our country is made as safe as possible for all women, whether they be our mothers, sisters, friends, etc.
