This is a copy of the contents of the email I sent to Law and Justice Minister of India, The President of India, The Prime Minister of India, and Ministry of Women and Child Development of India about legalising Chemical Castration as a punishment for culprits of extreme cruel rape cases.
Disclaimer: I know some of you might disagree, it’s your choice, but think how will be your reaction if it happens to you or your dear ones.
I am an Indian woman who believes in the right of each living being to live a peaceful life irrespective of gender, religion, caste, political views, or financial background. I feel highly concerned about the increase in crimes against children and women in our country. Even though the State and Central Government try their best to catch the culprits, through many legal and political loopholes, these culprits escape. Many of these culprits are not getting the apt punishments which make other criminal-minded people repeat these types of extreme cruelty against children and women.
I am kindly requesting you to please take “Chemical Castration” into consideration as a punishment for culprits of rape cases especially if the rape results in permanent damage to physical organs of the victim or death of the victim. The culprit too should experience the same amount of pain that the victim experienced during the heinous crime.
Countries – Ohio, California, Illinois and Arkansas have legalised voluntary castration. Castration deprives the man not only just from control over his sex life, but also from his dignity and respect in the society. You may also read the following reaction of a convicted child sex offender about Chemical Castration. (I am not putting the name here).
L**** D*** M*** said “What is barbaric is what I have done to so many children; refusing to castrate me is barbaric to the children I will molest. [Chemical castration]… is considered ‘cruel and unusual punishment.’ But no punishment is crueller or more unusual than the pain I have caused my victims. Voluntary castration is not unconstitutional, but no state allows it.”
