India Internationally Ranks at 102 in Descending Order. Yet, India is a country of rapists.

We will again go through some numbers because India is again being called country of rapists:
Rape rate per 100,000 adults in US: ~27
Rape rate per 100,000 adults in UK: ~28
Rape rate per 100,000 adults in Newzealand: ~25
Rape rate per 100,000 adults in Australia: ~28
Rape rate per 100,000 adults in Belgium: ~28
Rape rate per 100,000 adults in Finland: ~22
Rape rate per 100,000 adults in Finland: ~15
Rape rate per 100,000 adults in Germany: ~9
Rape rate per 100,000 adults in India: 1.7
By rape statistics, India ranks at 102 in descending order. Yet, India is a country of rapists. Yes, rape is a problem. Even one rape should shake us to the core. But don't brand India as a rapist country. Indians respect women not as a matter of law but as a matter of principle.
If you live in a foreign country and you are confronted with this question, muster some courage and tell them that India is far better than what they read in popular media.
Even if you are not particularly patriotic, do your bit at least because you were born in this nation. Please!
