An ‘Yes’ to sex as from the rape victim:



The law enforcement authorities in U.K. have since been asked by their government to strictly follow the new rule that the rape perpetrator seeking his defense has to provide an ‘Yes’ consenting to sex  as from the rape victim as a proof that he was innocent. Isn’t it that it looks funny and quixotic for the reason that the rapist who can force sex on the victim can equally force her to confess her consent for the act. Such a rule actually suits the rapist more as he can easily procure such a consent by applying forceful methods like he did while perpetrating the rape. The law is supposed to be based on logic and not the manipulations. Indian law is historically rich enough in dealing with the crimes in most logical a way. One such story needs a mention here where the great legal luminary like Pt. Motilal Nehru acted as defense counsel. One English woman was travelling all alone in the first class compartment of a train (Those were the days when only English men and women had the privilege of travelling in first class compartment and it was treated as an offence if some Indian passenger tried to travel as such). Fail as he did in resisting his temptation, an Indian youth barged into the compartment and had a rape with the young woman. The hell broke. The train had to be stopped and a police case registered against the young man who fully realised that he was now in for a severe punishment and his exoneration was just out of question. Many a people advised him that the only remedy available for his acquittal was if he could afford engaging Pt. Motilal Nehru, then a top ranking giant sized personality in the world of Law, as his Defense Counsel. It was managed. Pt. Motilal Nehru who was holidaying at Nainital advised his client to keep mum without uttering a single word in response to any questions asked to him by any one including the judge or even himself when the Court proceedings start. Proceedings started at Allahabad High Court. As already briefed by Pt. Nehru, the Defense Counsel for the accused,  the accused just kept mum to all the questions raised by different counsels and also the judge himself. This was the stage when Pt. Motilal Nehru interrupted saying in a louder voice that ‘……here lies the point In fact when the accused was raping the woman he was slapped by her hitting him so hard that he lost his voice and has gone totally dumb’. The woman who was present in the court shrieked loudly  with the words ‘….no, no, Sir I didn’t do any thing and was only quiet all along’. At this juncture Pt. Nehru roared saying ‘ …where is the case Sir when the lady concerned herself is confessing that she didn’t resist at all all along and it shows that she was fully in a compromising posture and sex with consent is no offence, Sir. The accused was fully acquitted of all the charges against him.

This story is quoted in the context that certain countries besides U.K. have a Law that a rape victim has to produce a sufficient proof to prove that she was raped. How funny? Laws  like this only support the rapist and not the rape victim. If a rapist can rape a woman by force it is damn easy for him  to manage some proof coercively in the case of both –the rapist and the rape victim.

  1. These days, in UK. There is much to be confused about. With State sanctioned child abuse. Removal by state of children from their parents. Secret courts, etc. Statute law becomes confusing to the ordinary person,

    Regarding rape, men should be a bit more cautious with how they conduct themselves. Women should be treated as if they were their sister or best friend, etc.

    The Nehru family, though, has a murky past and present. Which may be read about here …
