In Bangladesh, This heinous crime is so often that we start taking it as very normal and unavoidable. If we glance at the statistics of rape in the People’s Republic of Bangladesh within the past couple of years, we’ll be shocked and shamed as a nation. Recent news about a gang rape of a young girl, studying O-level at Mastermind college, gets countless media attention. She was raped by her friends to death in an apartment in the Kala Bagan area.

The victim’s mother told that four youths initially took the victim to Anwar Khan Medical Hospital where she was declared “brought dead”.whenever we get such horrific news we have a tendency to protest and claim the death penalty to the perpetrators and lift our voice to develop law and order situation. However, it doesn’t result in any form of modification and eventually, we lose our enthusiasm.

In addition to that proper parenting should be encouraged to make our children respectful to different genders. More gender-related education needs to be added to our academic syllabus. Indeed, A change in view towards women can save our sisters, mothers, and wives.
