People Outraged By Home Minister Ram Bahadur Thapa’s Statement On Rape Cases In Nepal

Nepal has had an unprecedented increase in rape cases in recent years.  With 420 rape cases in the last two months alone and an average of at least 6 rape cases (60% minors) daily since last year, rape has become a nuisance that is screaming for a dire response.

During these trying times, Nepali Women have never felt more unsafe in their country. Instead of assuring them for their safety, Nepali Home Minister, Ram Bahadur Thapa normalized the issue by comparing Nepal’s number of rape cases to the world rape statistics, after stating that it falls in the bottom 15 of the world.

This was received with mass outrage with people questioning not only the competence but also the intention of the government.

Here Are A Few Reactions:

One of the main reason why Nepal is one of the countries with the lowest rape cases contributes highly to the fact that 75- 95% of rape cases that are not reported. One of the major concerns that should be alarming is the increase in reported rape cases in the country during these recent years.
