This is one of the reasons India is one of the few countries I have no interest in visiting. The other reasons being the heat and the filth.

You would think this is common knowledge. A shame you had to explain it, people should already know.

Why would anyone go to the USA?

The US reports about 85,000 rapes a year, about 29 rapes per 100,000 population (58 rapes every year per 100,000 women).[50] There is a rape in the US every 6.2 minutes, with 1 in 5 women likely to be raped in her lifetime.

And a meaningful percentage of those rapes are rapes in name only. Consensual sex between two people where the law says one of the partners is ineligible to give consent, due to age, mental impairment, or the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Rape is a worldwide problem, in America or most 1st world countries, the most common rape is one committed by someone the victim knows.

In India, a lot of the rape is committed by strangers just someone who is lurking in an area looking for opportunities.

I would have to see hard reliable statistics to form that opinion, because I am just getting news from a news source on here. News sources are not for factual statistics, they are for entertainment/advertising money, so when they report an outrageous happening in India, it is for money from ads. This is done all the time. Rape in India is the flavor of the past few months for money, so it is being reported a lot. They will choose something else to hype up soon. I provided statistics in the US and people have excuses for us.

Rape in India is the fourth most common crime against women in India.[1][2] According to the National Crime Records Bureau 2013 annual report, 24,923 rape cases were reported across India in 2012.[3] Out of these, 24,470 were committed by relative or neighbor; in other words, the victim knew the alleged rapist in 98 per cent of the cases.[4] The incidence of reported rapes in India for 2010 were 1.8 per 100,000 people, among the lowest in the world. The US figure for 2010 was 27.3 per 100,000.

I hope we can look up reliable statistics on line, but maybe at some point you won't be able to. If people continually discredit new sources, then maybe people will become more educated and start laughing at the news instead of actually believing in it. I for one don't believe ANYTHING the media throws out there anymore and look at more statists to get a handle on reality. I think we are about 5 years away from people coming around to the way I think.

I probably wouldnt travel to any third world country, I see enough on TV and the News

it's not necessary to go there unless you really have to go or you have relatives there.

is your life worth risking just for leisure?

Ha, ha, ha. That is hilarious! Here is a thought, stop watching the moronic TV and the shock value news and you might actually live an enjoyable life. What a joke the media is. The US is WAY more dangerous than India. Not even close, but you watch the news, so you are informed. ha, ha, ha! Love it! The faster you learn the news is for shock value and advertising dollars, the better off you will be. Stop being stupid.
