Alarming

Fear that is ever prevalent in the minds of young women in the country has been compounded with the rape of a college student in the capital recently. It is obvious that the deterrent effect of punishment for sexual assault is non-existent. But then what can law do in a society that has become bereft of basic values? If anything, it is the collective failure of all of us. The least we can do is give a licence to women to carry guns and take the law into their hands when faced with such dangers.

The rising instances of rape in the country are the alarming fallout of frustration, illiteracy and unemployment among the youth of the country.
