Bangladesh govt approves death penalty for rape amid nationwide protests

Bangladesh government on Monday approved the death penalty for rapists amid protests across the nation owing to series of gang rapes and sexual assaults. However, experts opine that tougher penalties would not be enough to tackle the problem and authorities needed to instantly address systemic problems in rape trials and the enormously low conviction rates.

I disagree with this utterly. The only time I support the death penalty for rape is in the case of child rape, in which case I do not care about the gender of the victim or criminal and prefer the death penalty to be carried out as rapidly as possible. For all other cases it should result in imprisonment. Again, equally applied to both male and female criminals.

As has been stated the country suffers from extremely low conviction rates. Applying the death penalty will lower those convictions even further.
