Abstract

The ratio of rape in Bangladesh has increased dramatically in the recent past. It is happening due to the deterioration in social norms, and other several invisible social reasons. For any society’s ethical degradation, there are social, political, economic and cultural reasons. The proportion of rape has not only enhanced in the South Asian countries but also in the developed countries as well. The main objective of this study was to find out the reasons for rape, and to provide with some suggestions for controlling the incidence of rape in Bangladesh. Also, this study has done a historical review on how it can influence society, state, and psycho-physical conditions of the victims. The historical review is very effective in finding out the main causes of rape in any society. Methodologically this is a qualitative research work, based on both primary and secondary sources of data. The article has discussed the nature and inherent causes of the rape which occurred in some South Asian countries with particular emphasis to Bangladesh. Also, the social causes of the increase of rape- incidences in Bangladesh have been discussed and analyzed. The study found that there are a number of examples of rape incidents in Bangladesh. Based on the findings of this study, it is strongly recommended that, the authority should formulate legal framework, proper policies, and should take adequate steps for the proper implementation of the rule and/or law to control rape incidents in the society.
