ONLINE HARASSMENT CASES GROWING AT A DISTURBING RATE IN INDIA: MUMBAI #1



Smartphones and internet have taken all of us by the storm. Everyone seems to get an overwhelming amount of information at their disposal at any time. They are also able to express themselves in a social platform easily without facing any human- which in turn risks us to a variety of things including anonymous threats as well.8 out of 10 people surveyed reported to have encountered some form of cyberbullying, abuse, insults and cyberstalking, global cybersecurity firm Norton by Symantec said on Wednesday.

According to the survey, the highest threats of physical violence were reported by victims from Mumbai (51 percent), Delhi (47 percent) and Hyderabad (46 percent), with Delhi victims (51 percent) experiencing the highest incidence of cyberbullying. 

The survey was conducted through Morar HPI, an insight,strategy and creative consultancy, in 2017 with a sample size of 1,035 adults aged 18 and over. These figures are extremely alarming and concerning. Also, another shocking fact that needs attention is that most of these people had no idea about the real identity of the bully. The most common form was found to be sexual comments and disturbing emails and women were the easy soft targets. The fact that they will never be caught and never punished encourages this behaviour among the blotched minds. Such alarming statistics calls for some preventive actions on our part and forces
us to think about our interactions and time spent on the web. How safe are we? -Window To News
