Rapes will come down if people shun meat, alcohol: Swami Agnivesh #WTFnews

PTI | Apr 27, 2013,

NEW DELHI: Rape cases will come down if people shun non-vegetarian food and alcohol, activist Swami Agnivesh said on Saturday.

“We cannot stop a crime like rape by policing only…. I think rapes will come down significanlty if people stop eating non-vegetarian. There has been lot of research on this…. Rapes will come down significantly if alcohol consumption is not there,” he told reporters here.

He said a lot of crimes and accidents take place due to consumption of alcohol.

Arguing on the benefits of a vegetarianism, he said Japanese scientists conducted a study on the oldest man on earth recently and they found that he was a vegeterian.

“Every research conducted in this world points to one fact that red meat is the reason behind all diseases,” he said.

Agnivesh said that all the six accused in the gruesome rape of a young girl in a moving bus on December 16 last year were drunk as well as the accused in the recent incident of sexual assault on a five-year-old girl.

“In both the incidents, the accused consumed alcohol. This explains clearly that alcohol drove them to commit the crime. Alcohol shuts down the moral thinking of a person,” he said.

“Government is not ending alcohol-production in the country as it fetches revenue. All the states have now started competing to outnumber each other in alcohol production. This has become the norm,” he said.

Expressing concern over the fact that everyday one billion animals are slaughtered, he said that “its consequesnce will be severe.”

Regretting the loss of values in human beings, Agnivesh said, “There are no moral and spiritual values left in people. Schools today do not teach children about the evil-consequences of drinking. We cannot blame an individual for a crime. The society, as a whole, is responsible.”

Asked about whether death penalty will stop rape, Swami said, “Death penalty will not do anything. I do not support it. Death sentence should not given to anybody including those who attack Parliament. Even Kasab should not have been given death sentence,” he said.

    Rape is one malady Delhi has to suffer as a result of criminalisation of democracy. Way back in mid 1960ies when the Janata party was gaining popularity in Delhi, the Congress found themselves helpless and it started creating vote banks in the city by encouraging slums which with progress of time mushroomed into unplanned/unauthorised occupation of government land and land earmarked for systematic development by the state body like DDA. Further to ensure vote from these squatters, they were given free electricity and ration cards and encouraged to tap the water supply by breaking the pipe lines. Such freebies encouraged the squatters in such places to indulge in any crime from pick-pocketing in public transport to murders, all with the support of their area leaders enjoying Party and Police support. Rapes were taking place regularly in Delhi and even in posh high security areas like chanakya puri all through the last more than 40 years in my knowledge. The very same present Commissioner of Police Delhi was an ACP in Chanakya Puri Police Station in 1980ies and many a housewife was trapped by goons and gang raped in the basement parking of Chanakya Cinema even while being in the company of her husband. Many of these women later committed suicide. Had the Police taken cognisanse of even one single case, then many lives would have been saved. In fact rape is state sponsored crime as far as Delhi is concerned.
