Research proves women feel safer among aliens

A WomanChandigarh. A team of physical, chemical, biological, mathematical and social scientists have concluded that women tend to feel safer among aliens. Their research also discovered that this feeling of safety among women was proportional to the degree of foreignness of creatures around them e.g. a normal woman felt safer in the company of aliens (from outer world) as compared to being with men, or an Indian woman felt safer in the company of European men as compared to being with Indian men.

The research argues that the above phenomenon is a result of the atomic structure of the amino acids found in the red blood cells of women. Scientists performed a nonlinear multivariate regression analysis on the above factors to come up with the relationship between feeling of safety and foreignness.

The observed trend, where a man belonging to the same ethnic class as the woman was likely to go scot free after committing a crime against the woman, was also picked up for mention by the scientists, and the researchers felt that this trend could also be the reason behind a woman feeling safer in the company of aliens rather than her own men.

“If a Muslim man (or for that matter a Hindu, a Dalit, a Tamil, etc. man) was to rape a woman of his own community, perhaps not even a case would be registered. But if he raped a woman from another community, news headlines would be made and he could be arrested, in fact even a riot could take place to avenge the honor of the woman. The assured guarantee of lesser punishment causes men to commit crimes against women of their own communities, and this causes women to feel insecure among their own men.” one of the researchers explained.

The research and its conclusions are causing a lot of debate in various quarters. Women groups had mixed reactions with some of them welcoming the research and its findings. The most surprising reaction was that of Sri Ram Sena (SRS) chief Pramod Muthalik, who hailed the report as path breaking and ‘eye-opening’. SRS workers had attacked women in a pub in Mangalore.

“Indian women are on wrong path and confused. They claim that SRS doesn’t represent their society and religion, and they feel threatened by us. If we don’t represent their society that means we are like foreigners to them, then why do they feel threatened by us? According to this report, they should have felt safer with us rather than with their own pub-going men who shoot women dead like Manu Sharma did to Jessica Lall.” Pramod Muthalik argued.

Women group welcoming the report didn’t agree with Muthalik and counter argued that the report talked about human beings and aliens, and SRS workers didn’t fall in either categories. Some women rights activist also explained the recent development of spat between Chand Mohammad and Fiza in Haryana on the basis of findings of the report.

“Fiza felt safe with Chand Mohammad when both were Hindus but belonged to different castes and classes, but she erred by renouncing her earlier past converting to Islam with Chand Mohammad. Now with both of them belonging to the same ethic group, Fiza is feeling insecure.” Anita Bishnoi, a woman rights activist, told Faking News.
