    And what is with the aproxemately 1500 child abuse cases in Buddhist temples within the first 15 days in this year

    The reason for increasing the rape cases is due to modern day ladies dressing styles which lead to make numuras criminal activities. No one is responsible for these cases because they are all natural.
