Rape Map of India: Insightful, Indicative and Useful

The following “Rape Map of India” is very interesting.  In 2011, a total of 24,206 rape cases were registered in India, as per the National Crime Records Bureau.  The map gives the distribution of the cases.  Obviously, reporting of rape cases in India is not the same as reporting of a rape case in, say Sweden.  Many go unreported in India.  So, while this gives an indication of regional occurrence, it shouldn’t be taken as truth for overall numbers.

As can be seen the top 6 states for the crime are:

  1. Madhya Pradesh
  2. West Bengal
  3. Uttar Pradesh
  4. Rajasthan
  5. Maharashtra
  6. Assam

So given the culture in all the states, it is obvious that neither education, nor party in power, and even the religious biases aren’t any indicator.  It is beyond all that.  Something to think about.
