    Dear Ahmed. It is very simple. As you are a regular reader of Daijiworld. Just take some last 30 to 40 crimes and see the names. this is disproportionate to the ratio of population. you may take a larger sample if you need.

    These types of incidents are pretty common in jam packed Mumbai buses, but the women are so well aware and cautious that none dare get into such acts to avoid getting a royal pasting from the public! Such people have no caste or creed but just lust!

    Guyz dont you know how cases are filed these days??? Even if any man touches by mistake (groping cannot be mistake, mistakes or just a body gets touched in crowd), if girl is determined to file a compliant, then we know for a case of touch, complaints will be added extra such as Touched, groped, harassed, molested etc to make case stronger... This is similar to any cases. Take for example fake dowry charges.. Lady is harassed by husband and in laws, violence attack on her, took money from her etc. etc. Normally, the reality will b different and cases will be different.... Yes, I am not saying there are not real cases of such behaviors, indeed there are.

    You need to refresh your brain and come out of your comfort to see the cases happening in India.. Your brain becomes alert only when the names belong to other community and you turn blind when it comes to ur own community... Just google or go to each and every police station and check the records, who number increases in crime especially in rape and troubling ladies cases.....

    Egypt is one of the Arabic countries. Every woman, regardless of her religion, wears MODEST clothing. But the 'touching' is just horrific even by the Indian standards. You may be taking about the GCC. But there are many Arabic countries outside of GCC. Culprits fear the punishment, and are not scared by the modest clothing.

    Sheikh, please recall the incident that happened in the bus (mahesh) in the afternoon a month ago, where the bus was moving from state bank towards pumpwel.. You remember? The lady was in full dress...even covered her head...You remember the guy in question had posed for the photograph too! ??? For your kind information, no one roams without clothes in the bus...If they do so, no one has right to touch her unless otherwise if she is your legal wife. When a man doesn't control his mind or senses, then he should approach a psychiatrist for the treatment rather travelling in bus....Please dont justify the act. That means you too will lose the control and harrass the girls in the bus if their dress not full? If so, under which right ? You think only the accused was traveling in the bus ? Other men were not there?Disgusting
