LOVE - General precautions to prevent rapes
God blessed us with common sense and presence of mind to protect us from all dangers including sexual assaults and rapes. First of all we should have sense in our dressing and behavior. A woman or girl dresses half - naked or unusually tight dress or with see through dress material may give an impression that "I am available to any man that needs me". Similarly some awkward actions, walking style, hair style and wearing ultra modern fashion accessories also attract or fascinate rapist. Despite all this, if a person is ever raped, the responsibility ALWAYS lies with the aggressor, not the victim!
  • Be cautious, watchful and use your instinct or God-given intuition judiciously and it will get you a long way in preventing rape.
  • Remember most rapes (85%) are committed by non-strangers and in familiar, social situations in the places where the victims were alone or isolated.
  • Special care should be taken while attending parties / dating. Tell your parents or close friends where you are going. Totally avoid use of liquors and drugs. Keep enough money with you to meet emergency.
  • Should be vigil even in your home or in your car, if you are alone, all doors should be carefully closed and locked.
  • Don’t hesitate to say “NO” a big “NO” when a person behaving against your interest. Does not yield or wait. Say instantly “NO”.
  • If someone is approaching towards you with bad intention, hold out your hands in front of and shout “STOP or STAY BACK”.
  • Don’t allow any body to touch your body. No one has the right to touch you without your permission.
  • In uncontrollable situations do not be shy to yell or scream for help or call attention to yourself. Carrying a whistle makes a loud enough noise to alert others.
  • Take self-defense. Fight back with any thing at your disposal. Always keep self-defense items such as pepper sprays, stun guns, personal alarms, and electric stick etc. Pepper spray is convenient and handy. Take the fully charged mobile phone with you and keep it in an easy accessible position to call for help.
  • If you have any opportunity to escape, don’t try to fight. Don’t hesitate to run away..!

Remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
