The recent horrific rape cases and accounts of violence against women in India have not only stirred a wave of fear and anger within the country, it has also got other countries worried about their citizens visiting India.
U.S.A and U.K have issued safety advisory for women travellers who're visiting India. Recently the U.K government published a set of safety dos and don'ts titled 'India Travel Advice'. Travellers, especially women, are supposed to follow these to be cautious against.
(Female travellers) Should exercise caution when traveling in India even if travelling in a group.
These countries think that women travelers in India are at a high risk of getting assaulted. Can you blame them? India has been declared as the most dangerous country in the world for women.
While other countries are taking steps to ensure the safety of their female citizens in the "most dangerous country for women", Indian women are still waiting for our government to take some action.
Precautionary methods on the UK government's official website also cautioned tourists with facts and cases of assault against tourist women in India:
"British women have been the victims of sexual assault in Goa, Delhi and Rajasthan and women travellers often receive unwanted attention in the form of verbal and physical harassment by individuals or groups of men. Serious sexual attacks involving foreign nationals have been reported. In April 2018, a Latvian woman was sexually assaulted and strangled in Thiruvallam, Kerala. More recently, in December 2018 a British woman was raped in Goa.
The U.S.A government asked their travelers to stay alert at all times and stay in groups..
So it's not only the "daughters of India" who feel unsafe in their own country, even female tourists from all across the globe feel the same way.
