Yes, it IS right to point fingers at Indian culture for its rape epidemic

Sometimes people miss the wood for the trees. Owen Jones says that ‘Sexual violence is not a cultural phenomenon in India – it is endemic everywhere’.

As Owen summarises a key strand of thinking, one that many have referred me to, I think its worth challenging as it can be counter-productive.

1. No one had said rape is an India-only problem. Neither the Reuters blog post nor the Telegraph news piece Owen doesn’t link to cover the issue sneeringly. Both are balanced pieces.

I’ve not yet read one piece in the media that says violence against women and/or rape is exclusively concentrated with Indian men, and that western societies are utopias in contrast. Until this becomes a narrative I see no need to become knee-jerkingly defensive.

2. It’s counter-productive to lump all countries together when they have different cultures, laws, biases and records on protecting (or not) women. It would be ludicrous for example to say both Sweden and India are doing the same on violence against women.

The reason why campaigners point out that it is way better to be a woman in Canada than India is because they want the latter to improve and challenge its own record. If you disregard the differences then there is no pressure on countries to improve their laws.

3. Violence against women is a cultural problem. There is no getting away from this fact. It is culture that leads to a country’s laws and culture that discourages or encourages this violence. And it is this mentality and culture we need to challenge if we want people to behave differently.

Jenny McConnel summarised this perfectly on my Facebook wall yesterday:

It is culture (education, religion, media etc) that sends the messages to men that women are sexual objects, and somehow less equal than men. It is culture that builds the masculine ideal; which includes violence, controll and domination. (You must remember that men rape men and women can rape men. The same with domestic abuse, women aren’t always the victim.)
By saying it is a ‘male’ problem, you imply that it is somehow hardwired into their brains from birth, just because they possess a penis rather than a vagina.

Of course such views are also prevalent in other countries, but South Asia is getting worse and a huge proportion of humanity lives there. It is imperative on all of us to loudly show solidarity with the women there who want to be heard, instead of hiding behind moral relativism and fear of sounding ‘Orientalist’.

4. Trying to avoid talking about India lets the government and many Indians off the hook. This unwillingness to point fingers for fear of looking racist is counter-productive because it allows some Indians and their government to brush the problem under the carpet and pretend things are the same as in Canada. They’re not. To see meaningful change you have to prod and poke and expose.

India has a woman problem – that’s not just me saying it but Indian women themselves. Listen to them. Or instead of Rashmee Roshan-Lall you could ask Urvashi Butalia. Or see how Shazia Nigar points fingers. Some Indian women even want chemical castration as an option.

Lastly – I’m not saying this is an Indian-only problem either. I would be equally outraged if it were to happen here too, but it happens much more in India. It also seems hypocritical to point out that Uganda and Iran have a terrible record against gays, and Israel has against Arabs, while trying to avoid pointing fingers at India (or Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka for that matter – they all have very similar cultures).

It would be rather sad if people avoided showing solidarity with women who want to challenge Indian culture to change, for fear of looking racist. That is a road paved with good intentions going straight to hell. Come and join the Southall Black Sisters demo on 7th January.

Good work Sunny.

Can you comment on how this sentiment squares with the periodic debates we have in the UK about men grooming teenage girls? I recall much argument over whether the race and/or religion of the men prosecuted in Rochdale were salient factors or not. I suspect Owen takes the stance he does in order to avoid this comparison.

Well said Sunny. I suspect that Owen Jones doesn’t know very much about India. My wife spent considerable time there – her accounts of eve teasing are pretty shocking. If things are only half as bad as she told me then they are apalling.

Let us not forget that back in June – before the events that sparked off this current crisis – a poll of gender specialists around the world rated India as the worst place to be a woman in the G20. It was reckoned to be worse that Saudi Arabia.

To quote Gulshun Rehman, the health programme development adviser at Save the Children UK;
“In India, women and girls continue to be sold as chattels, married off as young as 10, burned alive as a result of dowry-related disputes and young girls exploited and abused as domestic slave labour.”

Read this piece by Helen Pidd.

Excellent, Sunny and mostly spot on.

Owen Jones, like many on the liberal left, tend to bottle it when writing about such topics and are happy to pervert reality in order to make it conform to their preconceptions and to pander to their own self image.

However…..

It would be ludicrous for example to say both Sweden and India are doing the same on violence against women.

You are correct that culture has a role in the prevalence of rape yet the success of the kind of “women’s rights” culture you advocate can be seen to have some unintended consequences.

Sweden has the highest incidence of reported rapes in Europe and one of the highest in the world. According to a 2009 study, there were 46 incidents of rape per 100,000 residents. This figure is twice that of the UK which reports 23 cases, and four times that of the other Nordic countries, Germany and France. The figure is up to 20 times the figure for certain countries in southern and eastern Europe.[40]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rape_statistics

The latest figure is 63.5 per 100,000, second highest in the world. And the reasons, of course, are various and complicated.

Firstly, there is a substantial immigrant population in Sweden who are five times more likely to commit sex crimes than the indigenous population (statistically almost half of all offences).

Culture again!!!

Secondly, the feminist lobby in Sweden has been successful in criminalising payment for sex and has almost eradicated prostitution.

What effect has this had?

Thirdly, the high numbers are explained by a broader legal definition of rape than in other countries, and an effort to register all suspected and repeated rapes.

Cue Julian Assange….

I think you are right and that Jones has opted to take the quick and easy oprion and write an article which while good overall, fails to point of the vast differences between societies and cultures where assaults on women are concerned. For example, according to this report “Official sources show that rape cases in India has (sic) doubled between 1990 and 2008″

Good piece Sunny, I was having a very similar discussion about Owen’s piece last night. I’m a big fan of Owen’s but on this occasion I think the tone is wrong, although for the best of intentions.

We have a big habit in the West of turning every story into a story about us (which, ironically, this piece does even as it argues against the idea that this is a story about how much better “we” are than Indians).

It seems to me that perhaps India is facing a fantastic opportunity coming out of tragedy to come to terms with endemic misogyny. To give people the chance to say “see, it’s not a specific Indian problem, it’s just the way the world is” is to actively harm the growing movement we’ve seen develop in the last week or so.

I like Owen, but he needs to be a bit more objective with his outlook. Look at all the protesters in India; clearly there is a problem.

Some point the finger at India’s film industry.
http://blogs.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/Swaminomics/entry/films-sanctify-pestering-and-stalking-of-women?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter

According to Bollywoods ‘Rape-O-meter’
Rapist No. 1 is Prem Chopra with 250 rapes in his career.
Rapist No. 2 – Ranjeet has clocked up 150 rapes.
Danny Denzongpa is a disappointing 3rd with a mere 110 rape scenes to his credit.
“The reason why these guys also make it to the top is because in the 70’s and 80’s even the villains would be multi-starrers, so the above three or some combinations would indulge in group rapes so that they all could be killed in 10 minute intervals in the second half”.
(moifightclub in bollywood, film)

Those numbers put even Frank Booth (Blue Velvet) in the shade?

8. Richard Carey

Indian women should have the right to be armed for self-defence.

And here we have Richard Carey @ 8 trying to lower the tone to the level of sheer twattery.

It’s an old myth that armed women are less likely to be raped. The truth is that people who aren’t really competant not only in the handling of their weapons, but also in dealing with their own adrenaline and fear are more likely to have their own weapons used against them.

Even soldiers, before the advent of modern training systems (read operant conditioning) post WWII were unlikely to shoot to kill their enemies.Studies from WWII showed that as few as 15% of soldiers even fired their weapons in battle. The number of them that aimed their weapons is probably far lower. See “On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society” by Dave Grossman for more details.

Unless Richard is suggesting that all women in India should go on training regimes where they are conditioned to overcome their human reticence to kill other human beings, he talking bollocks – again.

10. Richard Carey

@ 9

My comment doesn’t lower the tone. Unlike you I don’t sink to personal abuse. Of course people who are armed must be trained how to use it. I would have thought this goes without saying.

I am currently living in India. The problem is region-specific. Rape is more common in the northern states. Here in West Bengal, rape is far less common, but the main problem is husbands torturing their wives. South Asia is not homogeneous and uniform in the way it views women.

Richard Carey: “Indian women should have the right to be armed for self-defence.”

Absolutely but guns are unnecessary. Every wife in India should be given a Burdizzo for a wedding present:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burdizzo

Spot on Sunny, and needed to be said.

Robert: I recall much argument over whether the race and/or religion of the men prosecuted in Rochdale were salient factors or not. I suspect Owen takes the stance he does in order to avoid this comparison.

I was involved in that debate too. I think that’s not entirely different. I said then that rape was a common problem in Pakistan too, so it wasn’t just Pakistani men in the UK doing it.

But no doubt a local sub-culture had developed that made it perfectly legitimate to treat girls like that (as I said repeatedly then, the issue wasn’t racial but about hatred of women).

This article is full of sweeping judgments about India. It’s a country of one billion with an area the size of most of Europe and with at least as many languages. It’s true that rape is more prevalent in some parts of South Asia, but not everywhere. There are many cities where it is relatively safe for a woman to go to work and go out in the evening, using public transport.

I feel much safer walking around my neighbourhood at night here in Calcutta than I do in London’s Elephant and Castle. We don’t have gun crime or knife crime in this area and I haven’t heard of women here being raped. So, it’s a better place to live than most of rioting crime-ravaged London!

This all sounds pretty uncontraversial to me and common sense. Its always dangerous to be ideological where the facts speak for themselves. Interesting how certain usual suspects arent leading on what is an obvious and extreme example of their bread and butter commentary. Ideology getting in the way?

London has about as many riots as alien invasions.

pagar: You try to make the connection that lowering rates of prostitution raised rape rates and that it is a bad thing. But the take away message from that is that without a group of women for violent men to target, they will spread their violence to others. Essentially, that it is OK for prostituted women to bear the burden of sexual violence for the “greater good.”

Sunny you said previously ” . But sexual violence in the UK is rife. Lots of white men do it too – just in different contexts. So why do the same people not get heated about that? Why not get heated an angry about internet grooming? Why not call for legislation to deal with domestic violence, rape, grooming and molestation? Why do these people suddenly find their morality when Asian men are involved, and focus just on those kinds of sex crimes?” I’m still struggling to see how different this is to what Owen is saying

Aside from giving our support to Indian based feminist groups what else is there that we can do? I would have thought that putting our own house in better order so that we can be a shining example rather than objectively-better-if-you-look-at-the-big-picture (knowing full well reactionaries who are resistant to change will be pulling out the examples Owen Jones found and more as ‘proof’ that western equality is overstated and a lie, I mean a court in the States just ruled that the main cause of sexual harassment is sexy women) would be far more helpful to Indian feminist groups rather than a bit of overseas outraged finger wagging. The latter is easier to achieve though, I’ll grant you that.

“Violence against women is a cultural problem.”

So change the culture and it’ll go away? I must say I find that view naive. You can reduce the level of rape, no doubt, but you’ll never eradicate it, any more than you can eliminate murder. Eventually there will come a point where all you can do is punish the offenders and support the victims as best you can.

People are animals, you know.

“Yes, it IS right to point fingers at Indian culture for its rape epidemic”

Any other cultures that need pointing at?

(I must say, re the A&E nurse’s post, I had no idea rape scenes were such a feature of Indian films)

@17. Shatterface: “London has about as many riots as alien invasions.”

Well you’ve missed a few Dr Who episodes, haven’t you.

We can live anywhere without meeting violence, and we can just get on with it.

see here we go again,we bullshitt around this issue of gang rape and rape in general towards women,the indian state may execute these guys,in this case i think it is warranted,but why do we never have a serious grown up debate about rape in general.what do men fear worse than prison or even death when it comes to be sentenced for rape,well i will tell you this,full castration of the male rapist after serving a long prison sentence in my opinion would do the trick,watch how the crime of rape would be reduced if my form of punishment was introduced for this disgusting cowardly crime commited by my fellow males towards the innocent females all over the world including the uk.no dick.no rape.

25. Shatterface

Well you’ve missed a few Dr Who episodes, haven’t you.

Haven’t missed an episode since 1971.

As someone born and brought up in India and living London, I can recommend a fine book (to put it mildly) that may shed some light on this matter:

The ugliness of the Indian male and other propositions

Also, I don’t think you can truly claim to know why rape happens, so you may just be stigmatising Indian culture for nothing. I know certain “feminists” think they know exactly why people rape, but they’ve never been known for their love of facts or evidence.

It’s not often I agree with you Sunny but good piece.

Could I suggest that you take a look at http://itsagirlmovie.com website. This is a film that needs dissemination far and wide. I went to see it at a cross-party Parliamentary screening, what is happening in India and China transcends tribal politics.

Until India seriously addresses corruption in its government, police force and medical profession, until it enforces laws surrounding dowry-related crime, then women will continue to be second class citizens, treated as worthless property and subject to endemic violence and abuse.

Whilst no-one is claiming the UK is a utopia, given the choice the fact most women would chose to be born into a culture like the UK as opposed to India, to use India as a platform to bemoan Western misogyny is offensive and misguided. Women in the UK are not substantially less likely to make it though to adulthood, deprived of food and vital medical care and vaccinations, killed, abandoned, abused or neglected on account of their gender.

@ 10 Richard Carey

My comment doesn’t lower the tone. Unlike you I don’t sink to personal abuse.

Oh I’d say that trying to turn this debate into a US 2nd ammendment argument is lowering the tone.

As for personal abuse, I’d say that pointing out that what you say is twattery is different to calling you a twat.

Of course people who are armed must be trained how to use it. I would have thought this goes without saying.

And this is the crux of my argument. Training a person how to use a weapon is very different to training a person how to use a weapon in a violent situation. I’ve come across quite a few people who have learned to shoot a paper targets for example, yet were incapable of dealing with their own emotions when push came to shove. Anyone who has been in a position where they have had to use violence as part of their job is familiar with people freezing when the shit hits the fan. This is why since WWII western forces have concentrated on mentally conditioning recruits to kill rather than simply giving them target practice. If soldiers aren’t trained in this way, then most of them either don’t fight, or fight half heartedly. The social costs of this traing in terms of ptsd, violent crime, social problems etc is well known, but, when dealing with relatively small numbers of men who can do the unpleasant but sometimes necessary work that a state requires, the social costs can be carried by a society. When this kind of training is widespread however, things change and we end up with societies plagued by violent crime as happened after the US civil war (the outlaw gangs eg the James gang), WWI (the gangster problems if the ’20s and ’30s) and WWII (the outbreak of bank robberies, payroll robberies, safeblowing and Gangsterism). It is noticiable that many of the gangster types in Britain today themselves come from societies where gun law is considered pretty normal – this is no coincidence. Traumatised people often become violent people.

Unless you are proposing that Indian women generally should subject themselves to these kind of effects in addition to the current risks of rape, and the escalating violence that would be attendent – you don’t really believe that a bunch of macho fuckwits with serious psycho-sexual problems are just going to go “She’s got a gun… let’s go to the cinema instead” do you?

The widespread sexual repression, neo-puritanism and cheauvanistic attitudes that are sadly so widespread in India (thanks in no small part to the work of British missionaries and moralists I might add) need to be taken in a wider social context, along with the grinding poverty in which many perpetrators have been brought up. India has a serious problem on its hands and there are no quick fixes.

If you believe otherwise then you are a fantasist on a par with the plastic para.

Also, shouldn’t we focus on our own “culture” and let Indians sort out theirs?

31. Richard Carey

@ 29

that’s all very (yawn) fascinating, but it’s no more relevant than a discussion of fish farming. You are talking about why so many people don’t want to kill for the state, i.e. because they have a conscience and the state is usually demanding they kill for no good moral reason. That has nothing to do with personal self-defence.

All I said was women have a right to defend themselves and should be allowed the means to do so. You disagree, along with 100% of rapists.

Clara’s Bow: Sunny you said previously ” . But sexual violence in the UK is rife. Lots of white men do it too – just in different contexts….” I’m still struggling to see how different this is to what Owen is saying

As Owen and several others have tried to mis-represent my stance on Twitter, I’ll address this point even though I thought it was obvious.

I’ve not said anywhere that Owen’s article was wrong in what it said. My issue is with the point that we should not pick up on how bad things are in India, relative to other places, because it is a global problem. Just because it’s a global issue doesn’t mean attitudes and laws need more improvement in certain places than others.

Secondly, the grooming case involving mostly British Pakistani men had a different context.

1. The key accusation in the media about the grooming / paedophilia case was that they picked only on white girls due to cultural reasons. I pointed out this wasn’t strictly true, and that rape was rife in Pakistan too, so it didn’t mean Pakistani men avoided raping Pakistani women due to cultural reasons.

The key accusation here is that India has an ingrained problem across culture that is much worse, and leads to worse outcomes for women there. We can have a debate about how to measure this but I’m fairly confident this is a demonstrable proposition. In my view there is no point pretending this isn’t an issue.

2. It was a small gang of men, and I warned against extrapolating to a bigger group. In India’s case it is a much bigger problem spread out across the country.

3. In the case of the British Pakistani men – I did say it was partly a cultural issue in that a local sub-culture had developed that made grooming and paedophilia acceptable in their eyes (in the eyes of most Britons, incl Pakistanis, this is not the case).
So I didn’t say culture was entirely irrelevant in that case. The key thing I took issue with then was the accusation that they only targeted white girls because that was in their culture or religion.

You can’t compare apples and oranges and then say I’m inconsistent because I say slightly different things on two different cases.

33. Shatterface

All I said was women have a right to defend themselves and should be allowed the means to do so. You disagree, along with 100% of rapists.

Its a little early to predict but you could already be a contender for the Fuckwit of 2013 Award.

34. ouyfufvlyhv

@ 31 Richard Carey.

Right then. So you clearly believe that the responsability for stopping rape lies with those who get raped.

You’re also clearly an expert on the psychology of violence – I take it that you too know what gut blood smells like!

35. Richard Carey

Oh look:

“Hundreds of women inquire about gun licences following woman’s murder, showing the lack of faith in law enforcement”

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/jan/01/indian-bus-rape-delhi-rush-guns

The problem of rape is intimately linked to the problem of corruption. A bribe can be made to make a charge sheet weak enough to let the perpetrators go free, drop the charges or intimidate the victim. In Calcutta, a woman who was gang-raped by student members of the state’s ruling Trinamool Congress was subjected to intimidation and harassment: http://www.thehindu.com/news/states/other-states/student-gangraped-trinamool-student-leader-involved/article3992358.ece I’ve looked for subsequent reports on this case and it appears to have been suppressed. When rapists can act with impunity due to poor governance and corrupt cops, it is no wonder that rape is as common as it is. Every single significant problem in India is caused by corruption, including the pattern of crime.

You can either argue that rape is as much a problem in the West as it is India (Owen Jones), or you can hold that there is a major cultural problem with rape in India (Sunny). I’m with Sunny on this.

However, the issue of rape in India is also an issue for the UK because of immigration. Chris @ 30 says:
“Also, shouldn’t we focus on our own “culture” and let Indians sort out theirs?” But immigration from the sub-continent does not allow us that luxury. And international outrage at the rape culture of the sub-continent, particularly if led by western people of sub-continental heritage, will help, even if only in some small way, to change things in India and Pakistan.

And, by the way, as I’ve said before here, I think immigration has benefits and disbenefits. However, we will not integrate our immigrants unless we are prepared to face the disbenefits objectively.

I have spent a vast amount of time all over India and can say that the overwhelming majority of women receive far greater respect than the women in this country, there are of course cultural differences on how women are viewed and treated, but India is a Hindu country, with a population of a billion, Mothers are worshipped, married women are defended and love, romance and marriage are the main focus of most young Indian men.
I argue that it is the inevitable Westernisation of places like India that cause this type of behaviour, were relatively naive young men suddenly have access to the vile pornography available on the internet, exaggerated stories of western women and their free love etc. thrust upon a nation that is raised to believe in love and family confuses and intrigues them and it can only be a bad thing.

From experience I can say that of much greater concern is the treatment of women and girls in Muslim countries, in particular Afghanistan and the U.A.E, but I’m sure the press wouldn’t dare touch that with a barge pole.

39. Clara's Bow

@Tone “You can either argue that rape is as much a problem in the West as it is India (Owen Jones), or you can hold that there is a major cultural problem with rape in India (Sunny). I’m with Sunny on this.” To my mind there’s the problem. I don’t think Owen Jones said it was as much a problem in the west but rather that it was also a problem. To me the article was about being complacent about what goes on here and implying that bad things only happen ‘over there’. As I’ve said I don’t see how it is that far from what Sunny had written in relation to Pakistani grooming. Ie yes there is an issue but why are people not angry about it wherever it happens.
As I’ve said elsewhere Sunny seems to take the headline (not written by Owen) and used that as a stick to beat the whole article.

@ 38 Elwood

“I argue that it is the inevitable Westernisation of places like India that cause this type of behaviour, were relatively naive young men suddenly have access to the vile pornography available on the internet, exaggerated stories of western women and their free love etc. thrust upon a nation that is raised to believe in love and family confuses and intrigues them and it can only be a bad thing.”

If that’s true, then incidents like this should have started taking a notable upturn since the country started being Westernised, with another following the introduction of the internet. Is that the case? Genuine question.

I’m not at all convinced. You argue that wives and mothers are adored, but it’s not a simple case of “men either totally respect women or totally disrespect them”. There are things like the madonna/whore attitude: some men divide all women into angels and sluts.

@40 Well apparently they took an upturn once what might be called western economic reforms begin being implemented. Ultimately since women hold the key to the reproduction of labour, it’s necessary to recognise that laissez faire capitalist models are going to cause problems for women as various actors struggle with one another to control and dominate them, as they themselves struggle toward their own freedom.

42. Chaise Guevara

@ 41 Cylux

Hmm. Counter-intuitive. I wouldn’t have expected laissez-faire, for all its faults, to make much difference either way. I have trouble explaining this one.

I’ve also just realised that the stats I’m looking for are going to run into massive problems of total incidents vs reported incidents. The old “higher crime rate reflects better attitudes to crime” thing.

It’s true that the Indian Govt. needs a good ‘kick’start to implement laws, whether it’s the Sexual Crime Law or others.
But unfortunately the laws to be implemented have been entrusted on police men and women who are poorly educated, deliberately to keep the caste system, corruption and the similar uneducated vote bank flowing in full gear.
The above are all needed to keep the self serving politicians in their positions of power. How else can one ignore the systematic rape of women in conflict zones. Why was it important for the media to talk about Sonia Gandhi (a person who is nothing more than just a head of a political party). Is it out of real concern or to ensure her party’s next election victory ?
How many of you (Readers) believe that the protests would have occurred if the victim was of a Lower Caste and having taken place in the Tribal Villages of India or the plush home of a Rich Landlord ?
BUT:
In these Western Countries (eg – UK’s Council Estates), women are known for luring women for gang rape by the Host Woman’s boyfriend and his pals. These are rarely reported, nor are the culprits apprehended or punished.
Rape is also widespread (in Western Countries) of men on men, women on men and again rarely reported.
