India 'most dangerous country for women' Survey ranking inaccurate: WCD

The WCD (Women and Child Development Ministry) says today "clearly inaccurate" a survey that ranked India the world's most dangerous country for women. This report is based on the perception of "unknown persons".

"The ministry has asked the Thomson Reuters Foundation, which conducted the survey, for details on the experts to ascertain the report's authenticity, but no reply has been received as yet," said A senior WCD official.

According to this survey report Due to the high risk of sexual violence, India was the rank one dangerous country for women, followed by war-torn Afghanistan and Syria.

The WCD said the Reuters used a low-class methodology to arrive at the conclusion."The ranking is based on a perception poll based on responses to simply six questions. The results are not derived from any kind of data and are solely based on inherently subjective opinions," the ministry said in a statement.

"Further, the poll has been conducted with 548 respondents, which have been defined by Reuters as 'experts focused on women's issues'. However, information on their designation, credentials, country of expertise or qualifications is not available thus reliability is an issue," it said.

"India is far ahead of many countries in most of these areas and has also seen significant improvement in indicators when compared with its own performance in previous years. Therefore, the ranking of India is a surprise and clearly inaccurate," it said.

An Indian woman is in a much better position than a number of women in other countries around the world. Facts clearly show that the opinion of India as the most dangerous country for women is not a reflection of the reality, the statement said.

After this report, some people making this a political issue also. We have seen some post on Facebook and other social media were directly mentioned the political team name and leaders name. 

Apart from this may be this report is a wrong report but yes our India goes worst day by day towards to women. We have to do something on this and also our ministers have to do something on this.
