Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsWritten by Kalpana Sharma | Published: March 17 2016 12:00 am Related News When public figures speak violence the fallout goes beyond their immediate targets In ways seen and unseen those most affected are often women Recently we saw an illustration of this during the Jat quota stir In a sea of men blocking highways and railway tracks women were invisible In fact they were not there at all Yet they figured not as participants but as targets Although everyone seems to deny that any molestation or rapes occurred at the end of February there are several reports that suggest that women were attacked and that most of them will not speak out That is hardly surprising Did we not see that in Muzaffarnagar in September 2013 In the communal riots preceding the 2014 general elections only after the violence had subsided an estimated 60 people had died and 60000 mostly Muslims had been displaced did the stories of rape begin to be told Till today there has been no closure Just a few days ago one of those cases was closed because the survivor and her family “turned hostile” another way of saying that they were either intimidated or decided to keep quiet for fearof consequences Share This Article Related Article Despite changes in the rape law and an increase in general awareness after the 2012 gangrape in Delhi the reality for rape survivors who fight for justice is either endless delay and humiliation or threats forcing them to withdraw charges Statistics of the low conviction rate amply illustrate this reality Muzaffarnagar and Murthal tell us the same story When there is public violence by way of riots or agitations the consequence is often heightened levels of violence against women This is not unique to India Studies around the world have established this reality in multiple locations The most ghastly in recent memory is Rwanda where during the genocide in 1994 when Hutus systematically eliminated Tutsis in the course of 100 days of violence an estimated half a million women were raped or killed The legacy of that violence has still not been erased In the current atmosphere in India where statements are made almost on a daily basis about chopping off heads slicing tongues and taking revenge there is real reason to worry This kind of heightened violence much of it going unchallenged and even endorsed by the very people who should be stopping it leaves all women vulnerable not just those belonging to the targeted groups What this does is that it makes violence acceptable as a way of settling scores If ministers in the government speak such language and they get away without being reprimanded and are not even hauled up for hate speech then what is to stop any person from assuming that such talk and the actions that follow are permissible While data has established that the majority of incidents of violence against women occur in the home or familiar neighbourhoods a heightened atmosphere of violence affects women’s access to the public space At such times the problem is viewed as a breakdown in law and order In fact it is a direct fallout of a culture of political violence that is deliberately perpetuated and thereby becomesthe norm The government needs to recognise this and address it because it undercuts its stated efforts to “empower” women Beti bachao and beti padhao will remain empty slogans if girls fear stepping out to go to school or women are terrified at the thought of giving birth to another girl who will have to confront increasing violence at home and outside A survey conducted by the group Breakthrough in 2014 in five states and 15 districts in India indicated that girls on their way to school had to fight off sexually explicit verbal comments stalking and sometimes molestation The unsafe spaces women listed included bus stops railway stations open toilets public toilets markets and streets In other words practically all public spaces In election season women will be more constrained and restricted if these public spaces that they must necessarily negotiate every single day also become the sites of political violence The fear of molestation and rape will hold young girls back from attending school prevent women from going out to work and in myriad other ways directly affect their mobility The more dangerous aspect is not just the random violence in the public space but the targeted one when women become a part of the plan to wreak vengeance by one group of men on another This is what we saw in Muzaffarnagar And this is what could repeat itself as the electoral temperature rises particularly in Uttar Pradesh These realities are constantly obscured in the continuous talk about achievement and empowerment of some women or in the
