After a series of nationwide protests, the President of Bangladesh has passed an ordinance allowing or the death penalty for rapists. This ordinance by the President comes while the nation has been gripped by a series of sexual assault and sexual misconduct. On Monday the Cabinet agreed to increase the punishment prescribed for rapists in the country. this has been a much needed and awaited ordinance.

This may lead to some temporary belief however over a period of time the instincts of the general population need to be looked at.
