#secularism Kerala is country’s most crime-prone state, NCRB statistics show

jun 23rd, 2012 CE

kerala is india's most 'secular' state: it has 30% muslims, 30% christians, 30% communists, and only 10% hindus. just saying it's interesting that there is statistical correlation between the dominance of semitic religions, especially communism, and crime. 

kochi is the most christian-dominated city in the country.

NEW DELHI: These are one set of statistics Kerala will not be proud to
own up to: God's own country, and not the badlands of north India, is
the most crime-prone state, ahead of Uttar Pradesh and even Delhi.

 The latest National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) figures comparing
incidents of crime with the population of a state, notes Kerala is
most affected by crime and Kochi is the most dangerous city. Figures
compiled till 2010 show that Kerala has a crime rate of 424.1, more
than double the national average of 187.6.

 Kochi's crime rate is even scarier at 1,879.8 compared to most
cities, where the figure averages 341.9. NCRB's figures show that
Kochi also saw an exponential rise of 193% in crime in 2010 compared
to 2009. For a state that reaps praise for scoring high on literacy
and health indicators, the crime stats are unwelcome news.

 Crime rate - number of crimes committed per 1 lakh population — gives
a more realistic and comparative picture of law and order than a total
of offences registered in a state or city. A state with a larger
population can report a higher number of offences as compared to a
small state. But it is the crime rate that is an index of law and
order.

 Among states with significant population and area, Kerala has left
most others far behind with Madhya Pradesh a distant second at 297.2
offences per lakh population, and Delhi ranks third with a rate of
279.8. UP, much reviled on the crime front, has a crime rate of only
87.5.

 Kerala also ranks highest on incidents of rioting and arson with a
rate of 26 compared to the national average of 6.4, although Bihar at
8,809 incidents accounts for almost 13% of all riots in the country.

 To put these figures in perspective, NCRB has also compiled separate
statistics for violent crimes that include murder, attempt to murder,
rape, kidnapping and dowry death. On this count too, Kerala's figures
are high, inspiring little confidence in the state's government
machinery.

 Of the 2,41,986 incidents of violent crime in the country, Kerala
accounted for 11,756, more than much larger states like Rajasthan (10,
577) and comparable to its bigger neighbours such as Tamil Nadu
(12,333) and Andhra Pradesh (12,491). UP accounts for highest number
of violent crimes, recording 27,225 incidents.

 Even women are not very safe in the coconut country. The state's rate
of crime against women hovers at 27, higher than Delhi at 24.6, which
is often called most unsafe place for females. Bihar, incidentally, is
one the safest for women recording a crime rate against women of only
8.7 — second only to Goa with a rate of 8.

There is a big different between crime and quarrel. Doing crime is a lifestyle of some people that makes a place unsafe for a common man but quarrel can be on various daily needs and greed to make your decision the right decision for all. Kerala is still a good place where people are habitually peace lover.

One must realize that more crimes are reported in Kerala than in other states. This is because the police is seen as effective and the criminal justice system works after a fashion. This does not indicate in any way that Keala is more crime prone than the rest of India. The statistics do not lie, but the author does.
