Jyotsna Chandola: We always think that women are safe but that is not the scenario. Why do girls have to have a dress code why can't they go around free and wear what they want? Abu Azmi said boys will be boys but a boy has to differentiate between a human and an animal. Such inhuman behavior is not acceptable. So according to his comment, are boys taught to molest girls on the street just because they have worn short dresses? Also, a girl should learn to protect herself, take martial art and self-defense training. Not that she should fight but at least she can protect and escape from situations and can teach the person a lesson.
Sudeepaa Singh: I feel it's really sad that this incident happened. I feel people around should help if incidents like this happened.. and they should be punished for this shameful act! Especially on events like this, there should be more police security. I feel blessed to stay in a city like Mumbai where at least I feel safe and girls can travel late night also. But would like to request all the girls to avoid traveling alone if possible to avoid situations like this.
Jasmin Bhasin: Girls should also be brave enough to take a stand and fight if something wrong is happening to them. Also, girls can be safe if their parents teach their sons to behave and respect girls. Men of our country need to learn, how to respect a woman and make them feel safe. I really feel safe in Mumbai as I have stayed in Jaipur and Delhi and that's the best part about Mumbai.
Mrunal Jain: I think people who misbehave with girls think that nothing will happen to them. When such scary examples come in front of us, the people who did this should be strictly punished. And if a strict law should be passed for such cases, the situation will change. There will be fear among the people and it won't happen. So, instead of blaming the girls for wearing short clothes, it is the boys who should learn to respect girls. Women shouldn't be treated differently and there shouldn't be separate rules or regulations for them. Men and women both are equal, there is no difference in today's times.
Ssudeep Sahir: It is appalling. I cannot believe that such incidents are happening in today's day and age. I am extremely angered by it. For women, I think they it's important that they tell someone in your close friends and family always on your whereabouts. I always make my wife text me the details of her cab, just for safety. All these small things do help. Also, if you sense even the slight discomfort, get out! Your instincts are 99% times correct. Also, I feel self-defense classes in school for girls should be mandatory. However, I can't understand what pleasure these filthy men get out of touching women without their consent. Such people put all good men to shame. I think we need to speak out and aloud. Most of these incidents happen because offenders know they will get away with it as no one will intervene. My point is we have to intervene. No one should even dare to do such things. Also, our laws should be stricter. The punishments should be rigid but most importantly we should teach our sons better. I have a son and I have to ensure that I am always a gentleman and teach him the same values.
Ramman Handa: Molestation can't be justified. The incident that had happened in Bangalore is sad. It's not just about girls. Everybody has to be assured that they are safe during night outs. We all need to be aware of our surroundings and safety measures. We need to be with someone trustworthy; at least one person if we out going for a party at late hours. People those who molest are mentally imbalanced and need treatment. It's important for each one of us to take safety measures and also know while our we mingling with at late hours, and if we are taking alcohol then we should be aware of our restrictions too.
Karan Wahi: Can the government. for a change hang the men and not debate about what needs to be done .Actually beat those men to death. It's disgusting that such things are still happening in today's times and severe action needs to be taken..
