Born and living in Delhi my entire life.

Delhi is a great place to be with lots of things happening, it is planned and has nice places, connectivity, economy, etc. But we should not be hypocrites and portray that it is some kind of safe city. It is known as the rape capital of India, if not the world for a reason. Very unsafe for women in general.

Crime levels are quite high and corruption is a major issue here. While it is unlikely you will get attacked on your skin color, but you can get attacked for being a minority, particularly Muslim, thanks to the rise of Hindu extremists. All it takes is a little incident that you may not even feel is a big deal.

I hope we can make Delhi a safe city. US and China and Japan all have big cities that had crime problems but they were able to solve it. I hope India can do it too.

Delhi is also Known as Crime Capital Of India. There is no safety at all in Delhi, Better Never visit this city . Try to visit other cities like- Mumbai , Kolkata , Bangalore etc. These cities are safer than Delhi.
Delhi Is the worst city in India .

Delhi has three major problem, traffic , pollution and crime. If all the crime is reported like in west, no one would ever go there. So much of alcohol and drugs can be seen. I traveled with my family through out India and Delhi is really bad on safety.

I'm not from Delhi but in school, we have to do research on Delhi,
this was an area we have to cover.
It is so sad to see the crime rate and especially what some of them are for.
I really do hope that they fix his issue or at least try.
Hope everyone is doing ok over there.

I am from Delhi.

I am always worried if my sister would be safe home.

We as Indians are highly hypocritical and would not admit that Delhi is Highly unsafe.

I hope we acknowledge this fact so we can improve.

Or the beautiful regions of the Himalayas ..?!she rose from the ashes and continue to do so after massacre after massacre after loot and after after rape after rape on her soil ..her tolerance of never having had any anti semetism ,being home to the second largest Muslim population giving a roof to serval persecuted groups being the root of the rig Veda abs all its glorious knowledge as well as the Indus civilisation ..India isn't ONE country it is many and America !?dont get me started whether it's gunning down innocent Sikhs ,or rampant islamophobia or the dirty shit holes of Detroit or the high crime rate or its government being one of the most evil killing millions /displacing of Muslim women and children ..America is not only a divisive shit hole it's pure evil one which conditions the 'Kevin's ' of the world to speak such venom about other regions one which keeps people stupid and asleep to the actual world and how complex everything is talk of filth ??you talk of America ??!

Hmm... How many years after Independence did it take for India to become so filthy? Like a child who doesn't know any better, the country wallows in its own excretia, literally.
Now, open rape on the buses occurs in full view of other passengers who do nothing to help.What? That pangs of anarchy and a disconnect that is a reversion away from structured society. How long before a complete return to animal behavior?
Does anyone wonnder why so many of we Americans don't want any more immigration here? We look on as country after country keeps up a mass Exodus to abandon there homeland and live off the achievements of our American forefathers. How long before we become a society of similar decay? Don't laugh, that's exactly the kind of denial that over time has led to so many third world countries to the hopeless and inexcusable situation that they find themselves.
And don't try to rationalize by saying we're a country of immigrants! We have had an open door policy for year after year, decade after decade, century after century. But nothing is good in the extreme. Yes, man must be governed and so should todays approach to alien migration in the USA. Why did it take terrorism and the loss of so many lives to finally wake us up? And that arousal is still incomplete.
What's it going to take to wake you up?
I hear India is wonderful this time of year. Why don't you take your wife and daughters for an Indian bus ride? Or save the cost of the trip and go on the subways of N.Y.C.? You say it's not that bad yet? Just wait and keep on letting all those who won't fix their own countries migrate here. And don't even get me started on the illegals....
