Cognizable crimes in excess of 50 lakh have taken place in the entire country !
Based on the findings of the report, it is not surprising that criminals have absolutely no fear of the Police and the law. It is imperative to devise effective measures, such as making stringent laws, teaching self-defence to all citizens to reduce the number of crimes. Additionally, everyone should be provided ‘Education on Dharma’ for the creation of an ethical and Sattva predominant society. Only this can curb criminal mentality. However, this can happen only in the ‘Hindu Rashtra (Nation)’ !
It is disgraceful for the Government and the Police that the number of crimes have kept increasing since Independence !
The Police should stop patting themselves on the back by saying, ‘The rate of convictions has increased and people are now coming forward to lodge complaints’. Instead, they should carry out their responsibility of law enforcement diligently and seriously so that crimes do not take place at all !
