After the brutal rape and murder of 27-year-old in Hyderabad, the nation has been collectively outraged over the plight of women of our country even in this day and age.
In light of the appalling situation, a young woman Anu Dubey has been protesting alone outside the parliament for justice to prevail with a placard that reads:
Why can't I feel safe in my own Bharat?
While she was raising concerns over the safety of women, the authorities detained her and she was in police custody for the 'crime' of demanding accountability.

Is this a country we want to live in???
Shame government, shame delhi police
For arresting and torturing annu dubey
Bravo! Anu Dubey. All genders need to come forward and demand women safety. Let's ask- "Why do we women have to be afraid for our safety in our own country?" Why do you fail to protect us? Why the victim has to live in fear and not the rapist?#Priyanka_Reddy#IAmAnuDubey https://t.co/iUCxQXPznQ— Ekta Singh (@imektasingh) November 30, 2019
#IAmAnuDubey this world deserves to end for more than one reason, but most importantly cz being a women, a girl is become scary beyond expression.— Dr. Shabana Pathan (@DrShaabz) November 30, 2019
#IamAnuDubey there are rapists and corruption masterminds sitting in parliament, in every state legislature, in every state police department. We are so helpless now, we are afraid of even those whom are supposed to protect us.— Shalabh Raj (@shalabhrocky) November 30, 2019
While the authorities are still silent about the shocking incident, at least a fraction of our youth is taking the responsibility to demand accountability and action.
