People should boycott going to India, until the laws protect women and it is safe to be out at night. They need to start arresting all the rapists and putting them in jail with long sentences as a deterrent.

rampalinc, the laws in India protect rapists and they get away with it. Women around the world will not pay money to visit a country where there are very limited laws protecting women and a culture that promotes violence towards them. India is not being singled out. Many women will not go to Egypt for the same reason.
