National Commision for Women (NCW) rejects reports on women safety in India

New Delhi | National Commision for Women(NCW) chief Rekha Sharma on Wednesday rejected the recently published report stating that India is the world’s most dangerous country for women.

“I don’t believe in this survey because they have just questioned 25 women and such a less number cannot represent a society. Yes, the FIRs have increased and media is taking up these issues very actively. But the crime rate hasn’t increased so much that we top the list. There are countries in which women are in worse conditions,” she said while claiming that the sample size was too small.

She further added that “We are definitely not number one in this scene and this survey is flawed. Moreover, we are not even competing to become number one when it comes to this.”

Earlier on Tuesday, a UK based Thomson Reuters Foundation survey report ranked India as more dangerous for women than war-torn Afghanistan and Syria, which came in second and third place, respectively.
