Those who are opposing the death penalty they should understand they are generalizing things here. Here death for raping 12 Years or below not above than that. And There are observation, the survival of Rape Victim up to 12 years of age is very low, she or he may be killed or hardly live life without trauma. SO called Human Rights Activist also understand the psychology of rapist why they rape babies even who cant say a word :( can`t even cry ...who can`t even describe what happened with them, this is not humane not even natural. I regret that i am living a world full of .................... :( :( Thanks.
I disagree with you in child abuse case because if convict should not be punished then there will be no fear for the people who involve in rape of girl or women and I think they should be hanged publicly naked on the street .

Bright colours, geometrically repetitive patterns and interlocking zigzag motifs in cotton and jute are the signature styles of the carpets.

  11. In its latest Migration and Development Brief, the World Bank estimated (contd.): The remittances to South Asia grew a moderate 5.8% to $117 billion. Global remittances are expected to grow 4.6% to $642 billion in 2018. Reversing the previous year's sharp decline (8.9% in 2016), remittances to India in 2017 picked up by 9.9%, the Bank said. As against $62.7 billion in 2016, it received $69 billion last year.
