India is not safe for women visitors, especially for naive young women who travels alone. Do not let your guard down if you have to go there. In fact, don't go there at all.

Never been to India, but my guess many GOOD Indians are also unhappy with all of these RAPES going on in their country.

She won’t hail a taxi off the street, she won’t stay in an obscure hotel and she won’t go out after dark

Rape incidents or not, those are necessaty precautions when traveling abroad, not only in India but in most other countries, too.

Rape crime is happening every hour in India. Now India is world rapist country. I think female tourist shouldn't go alone or India is no safe place for female even go with male partner. Government must educate Indian men about sex crime. The Indian men seem to be lost their mind when they saw female. It's national shame for India.

My daughter spent six months travelling around India and had a wonderful carefree time.

Now in light of recent news she begins to doubt whether she could ever go back.

plenty of women have hailed taxis off the street, stayed in obscure hotels (hostels) and gone out after dark in thailand, singapore, hong kong, china, japan, south korea. basically, east asia is safer than south asia.

Back in 1990s, India was poorer and more backward however it is safer and more innocent. Bollywood movies have stricter censorships. Now a days, many Bollywood movies are very westernized and Freshy and Sexy. That greedy movies makers are responsible for making INDIA as Champion of the Rape.
