MALAYSIANS' SAFETY FROM PAEDOPHILES, RAPIST, ETC
Why do this keep happening?
Weak Laws in Malaysia
Malaysian government doesn't publish child sexual abuse data is because it is protected under Malaysia's Official Secrets Act
Weak policing and child protection laws make it difficult to punish child abusers in Malaysia
weak laws and rules governing court evidence that give little weight to children's testimony as the reason most cases never result in charges
Malaysia does not have a law specifically prohibiting child pornography and defines rape narrowly as penile penetration
Common patriarchal victim-blaming culture
Victims are partly or fully responsible if they had be raped
Victims do not have the courage to report to authority as they are afraid of being blamed, looked-down upon and deserted
from 2005 to July 2014, a total of 28,471 rape cases were reported, of which only 16% (4,514 cases) were brought to court, and only 2.7% (765 cases) had a guilty verdict. Such a saddening low rate of conviction
They are questioned, doubted, looked down upon and even asked to marry the very person that violated them
Ignorance of parents
Children are lack of knowledge in self-protecting
Children or victims are being blackmailed by the culprits
How Malaysians can save themselves?
Never leave children alone outside home.
Always a male family member should be with females when they are outside .
Children must avoid unknown contact.
Women/Girls who are students must leave for institute with a male family member and they must be received by a male when back to home .
Women and girls having jobs should leave home with a family member to bus stops and family member must receive her on relevant stop and bring her to home.
Females leaving for shopping must be in groups or with males.
Support the victims of rape or child abuse
Urge the authority to make stricter laws
Start to care about what happened around you
Teach children how to protect themselves and say "no" to strangers
Parents should be more alert towards their children's behaviour and contacts
Victims should stand up for their own and the society should be on their back
Women should learn some self-defence techniques
Always be alert to your surroundings
Girls or women
