this article tends to say that violence of a sort which i am uncomfortable to quote here, is a product of bollywood and the western culture.
first of all, those people who talk about data and surveys, forget to mention that till date 80% of the rape cases in US were filed by ladies against their husbands. to subtle???
our society teaches a middle class girl that her heaven is in the feet of her husband/future husband.

secondly if the women in bollywood are “immorally” dressed, that is their choice. if you think these so called “loose” ladies in bollywood are the problem, try tracking down their family backgrounds (google it).
90% of the models in 90’s were daughters of senior level govt. officers. so are/were these people idiots?

why is a girl suppose to wear salwar kameez and after marriage saree? what about the men? and first of all who made these rules?

as i have insisted earlier too, the problem is the mentality. a mentality which is supported by the politicians.
politicians who talk about culture, have more than half of their families in europe and US.

how can we close our eyes to standard of living of the female population of the developed nations in the name of our superior culture and traditions. such tradition is of what use which keeps a wife at the feet of her husband.

if immorally dressed actresses and models lure us to commit such heinous acts, we are no better than animals.

even worse, because we are animals with brains and have fingers to point at other for our own appalling acts.

I my personal opinion respecting the women is the only solution to this problem. To achieve this goal as I said earlier this will take longer and longer time and there is no short cut to it.

Best regards
