Thanks for posting this, Cher.

There's a plausible theory that India's high rate of violent sexual assaults is related to the higher abortion rate of female fetuses, since the society tends to value sons much more than daughters, So some men will be unable to marry because of the lower ratio of women to men, and become social outcasts, taking their anger out violently on girls and women.

This is extremely common, some of the perpetrators are Hindu but the majority are Muslim especially in Pakistan and Bangladesh. There are also many honour killings.

Anyone who is interested just do a google search, there are many ways to become involved.
