Top 10 Countries With Maximum Rape Crimes

Rape is a particularly complex crime to analyse, in several parts of the world, it is very rarely reported. Women in some countries are much less likely to have their complaint recorded, due to the extreme social stigma cast on women who have been raped, or subjected to violence or the fear of being disowned by their families.

Rape and other sexual assaults statistics are commonly available in advanced countries, and are becoming more common. Large numbers of rapes go unreported throughout the world. Here, we’ve presented the statistics for 10 renowned countries with maximum rape crimes. You would be amazed to see that the most developed countries like America, Canada, Sweden and United Kingdom are the most immersed in this crime. About 36% of women globally have experienced either physical or sexual intimate violence. In U.S. 83% of girls aged 12 to 16 have experienced some form of sexual harassment in public schools. In England, 1 out of 5 women (aged 16 to 59) experience some form of sexual violence. Following is a detailed list of countries with maximum rape crimes.

(Rape statistics United Kingdom).

If you look at the number of rapes, however, the increase is even worse. In 1975, there were only 421 rapes reported to the police – in 2014, it was 6,620. That is an increase of 1,472%. It would seem Sweden is a much more dangerous place for women in the world.

Sweden has the highest rate of rape in Europe. In 2013, according to the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention (Brå), there were 63 rape cases per 100,000 population reported to the Swedish police.

  • USA should be at #2 with approximately 300000 rape cases per year. UK at #3 and India #4 ..
    Where is Israel??

    • Old Shatterhand

      isn’t it strange that there is no any muslim country in the list – probably because the author of the article is a muslim and because the rape is not a crime in the islam world, just like the pedophilia.

      • armrizwan

        if you rape in the muslim county your head will be cut off. therefore very few dare to do the crime of rape

        • It has been my experience that blame the victim (usually a poor young girl or boy) and dispose of the problem by throwing rocks at it until it quits moving.

          • Avadon

            Exactly!

        • Avadon

          You mean the victims head is cut off. Rape is rampant, probably 10 fold this article in 3rd world countries where they have no reporting at all. You think places like Nigeria, Yemen, Saudi Arabia have less rape then the US? You’d let your girlfriend walk around in a mini skirt in such a country? Yah right?

        • BHIP ENERGY DRINKS

          Yet people still rape because, the victim doesn’t report it, far out the ignorance among muslims trying to make Islam seem pure as possible

    • Joy Handy

      Where’s the middle east

  • Maximus

    That’s one hell of the well researched article i have ever seen on rape crime. Should include the details in my next coming thesis. Astonished to see America at no 3. Bastards Americano.. Portray a peaceful nation image to the outer world but actually they are bastard sons.

    • Joy Handy

      I’ve been in the U.S. my whole life. I can tell you that even though our poor have it much better than poor in other countries, I don’t see how this country can claim to be peaceful per say. Between shootings at schools, drive by shootings that are often random, to the bs cops pull, and then all the victimization of women and children. It leaves me not wanting to go out of my home a lot. Just this month, there was a guy randomly shooting people on one of the interstates here in Arizona. On top of it all you have our leaders creating the Patriot Act, which is a document that allows our constitutional rights to be screwed over by those in charge. Many people are becoming meth addicts. Joblessness is on a major rise, our economy is a joke that could explode at any time. I say we are all over due for a revolution. There is hardly anywhere in America, that is not it’s own little crime zone that you have to adapt to or become a victim. You have to be cautious and very aware anytime you leave your house. It’s amazing that many have become so comfortable in the sickness, and used to the shit, that they don’t realize what a war zone life is. Add to all that, our government choosing to see it’s own military as terrorists, so they are watched close. It’s all such madness here.

      • Avadon

        That was the most idotic, lying, nonsensical bullshit I’ve read on this page. Fuck off with this fear mongering. I think you’re actually describing Saudi Arabia, not the US. Most of the US is very low crime. I think you’ve been watching too much fox news.

        • Kate Pausig

          We have the highest mass shooting rates in the world. We do have a lot of issues that Joy is saying. We are not all that safe but safer than most.

    • Avadon

      America is one of the least violent, most free, and most just countries on earth. The reason why these western countries all top the list is because we chronicle rape statistics very carefully because we take it very seriously. Where are the rape stats for Russia? Middle East? For Asia? Oh that’s right they either don’t do any rape statistics at all or refuse to report them. Why do you think everyone is clammering to get to the US. This is one of the best countries on earth.

      People like Joy Handy are just fear propagandist morons. Yes there is violence in the US, just like any other place on the planet but it’s no war zone as that idiot would like you to believe.

      • Beyondxx

        Fuck you, America is far from an amazing country like you describe. I will never forgive your country for destroying my country and murdering my people over a false accusation. Fuck the US, a country that would rather spend money on war then take care of its own people! You are all a bunch of greedy, oil loving bastards. The Iraqis that fight Isis consider the US as their enemies too because all you people are good for is “accidentally” dropping weapons to the enemy and “accidentally” bombing innocents! All this shit began because of Sunni Islam. Why is the US still close allies with ISIS supporting countries such as Saudia Arabia and Turkey?

        “Most just”- like how the US is the only developed country in the world to NOT have signed the ratified the Convention on the rights of the child? That’s taught in Australian history text books and I was honestly shocked. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

  • Heather08

    It seems like this list is designed to shame countries that actually care enough to actually keep rape statistics and try to deal with the problem.

    • Papapau

      Very well said. It’s like Ejaj Khan, the writer of this list, is deliberately making Israel and other rape filled islamic countries better than countries where women has the right and motivation to file complaints like rape.

      Shame on you secular countries for making it easier for women to file rape cases! Hooray religious countries for making it hard for women to even think of reporting rape!

      Sick article.

      • kalle

        You cant compare different countries with different laws against each other and countries with different views on what actually counts as rape. In sweden they recently changed the law so that if a person was raped frequently over a years time once a week for example that would count as 52 rapes on the record. Before this lawchange and what actually is the current law in most countries these 52 rapes counts as 1 rape on the paper. This is the reason to the mayor differences in statistics. Also the nordic countries have a lot better equality which gives women more courage to actually report even the smallest crime.

        • Avadon

          I don’t know about all that. But the reason for these statistics is because there are no rape statistics for the middle east because they don’t carry it out. You think that means that actual rape culture isn’t alive and well there? hmm?

  • Cainisable1

    I cant trust this list for a few reasons. For one, culture. In the US and many western countries, women are encouraged to report rape. Some other cultures, the women are not viewed as victims and goes under reported if at all. I would expect in a more liberal country, reports of rapes to authorities would be much higher than say, Afghanistan. A country where a woman recently had to marry her rapist because he got her pregnant. Also, age. Age of consent varies in different countries and in the US, even different states. Age of consent is 17 in New York where in other countries it might be even lower. Also, what constitutes rape? It depends on the laws in the country as well. In any case, this list, no matter who is on it should be taken with a grain of salt.

    • Mariama Darboe

      Good analysis. i agree that every country should be held accountable. However, in my humble opinion the issue here is not only about which country has a higher rape prevalence rate. The statistics further underscore the fact that WOMEN ARE UNSAFE EVERYWHERE.

      if more than 30 percent of women in developed and “civilized” countries ( equipped with the best systems of governance ) such as Sweden, are victims of rape, we cannot afford to be complacent but must focus on STRATEGIES AND WAYS THAT urge men to reform and for better protection of women .

      Hope this makes sense.

      • Cainisable1

        I personally know some Special Victims detectives out of the Bronx. They tell me that 70 – 80 percent of the rape claims are patently false. Either prostitute did not get paid for her “services”, white college girl caught sleeping with a black guy, or some sort of “vengence” against a man. The detectives have to take every case seriously and do. But of the reports, how many of them are true? I think men in Western countries have been beaten over the head with anti-rape messages. Rape is a horrific crime against a woman. Most of the times, rapes happen where the victims know the person. In the case of protection women also have a duty to protect themselves. Go to parties in groups, don’t drink until you are drunk, always keep an eye on your drink.

        I had been accused many years ago of being inappropriate. I was absolutely lucky I had witnesses at a party that were mutual friends of ours. It was to cover up she was sleeping with my friend while she had a boyfriend. I didn’t even touch this lady. But that didn’t stop her accusations. She only stopped when she was threatened with her relationship being exposed. So, when I hear rape, it is a terrible crime. But again, I always wondered how many of those situations were like mine.

      • Old Shatterhand

        as I said in my comment that just was deleted – I don’t see any muslim country in the list – probably because the author of the article is a muslim and because the rape is not a crime in the islam world, just like the pedophilia.

        • Fahim

          This is the beauty of Islam. In Islam it is one of the major sin that the reason Muslims avoid it. Muslims respect women and protect women from being rapped. That the reason u don’t see any Muslim countries in this list.

          • WookieInHeat

            yeah, there is no rape in muslim countries because women are second class citizens who can’t report it. if you don’t want the law to be broken, just don’t make it in the first place!

          • Alp Arslan

            Nonsense ..women in Muslim countries are raised that they must be treated like queens , which is something that makes me bored because I feel it exaggerated sometimes . LOL .. i guess you never been to a Muslim country , I agree that a Muslim woman is not totally like a Western woman and this is not a bad thing because there are things you can not change and even most Muslim women don’t prefer the example of a Western woman because they see themselves more cherished and respected than a Western or non Muslim woman. And in other words I would prefer women to be second class citizens but cherished and protected than being cheap and available for everyone.

            LMAO you’re a sick idiot !

          • Avadon

            Treated like queens? Is that before or after they are stoned to death for adultery? You are a disgusting person. This is why women hate Islam, it’s rape apologists like yourself.

          • Alp Arslan

            Women hate Islam ? if you saw some women who hate Islam it doesn’t mean all Muslim women hate it ! so why they keep it ? that’s the funniest and most stupid thing I ever heard ! Can you tell me how many women hate Christianity ? Western women are the most among people who embrace Islam . I saw it myself in Germany and France and I read about it in many other Western countries . . And in every society and community you will find someone who has problems .
            Stoning to death for adultery is a penalty only for someone married who commit adultery , not for a single person , and this penalty is not only in Islam , but it is in Judaism also, and it is not only for a woman but for men too , this is Islam.. you do something wrong, you pay for it ! Nobody told you to bullshit ! .. but to prove the adultery for someone , Islam put very hard conditions like the presence of 4 witnesses who saw you doing it, and they all must be male and Muslims , and known by their trust and honesty , and each one of them must have seen the insertion , each one of them will be asked separately by the judge.. if the judge doubted about any of their utterance , he will not approve the penalty !! so you can see how difficult it is to prove that someone commit adultery and therefore harder to approve the penalty of stoning ! .. Do you know how many stoning penalties have been done since the appearance of Islam 1400 years ago till now?? not more than 5 ! , but can you tell me how many women have been burnt alive and killed by the church in the name of Jesus ?? how many people have been tortured and killed by the religious inquisition in Europe ?? Millions !!

          • bellajewels

            Your history is hugely skewed. BUT..I understand that you will defend muslims right or wrong and even down right evil…otherwise it may be your head that is rolling should a fellow muslim be following your comments.

          • Sam Dselva

            “they are stoned to death for adultery”—-your knowledge of Islam is null. Is it only women who are stoned or men as well. Do we have different law for men and women .This is why women hate Islam—it is just your statement . if you see statistics of men and women reverting to Islam in western world, women are by far numerous as compared to men

          • Avadon

            Alp Arsian is a rape apologist. The man probably has his own sex slaves.

          • Alp Arslan

            sex slaves? it only exists in your culture where women are abused and humiliated in the name of “freedom” , this magic word under which every shit is done

          • Joy Handy

            Men don’t understand that rape counts even if it is a wife or relative that can’t report it.

          • David DB

            you’re joking right? did someone forget to tell ISIS?

          • Alp Arslan

            ISIS just appeared 2 years ago , and I don’t care what your media is showing you because most of it is fake . But the records of rapes in non Muslim countries are still higher and will always be higher.

          • Hey Bro do not know where you are from but I have lived in Islamic Countries for the last 10 years and you they have a rape problem. You are just like most of the Western World 50 years ago it is not reported and you do not talk about it. Get your head out of the sand and out of the Mosque and you will see it. Kinda like there are no homosexuals in Iran. Yeah right….

          • Alp Arslan

            you think you know everything but you know nothing .10 years are not enough to know everything . first of all Iran is NOT a Muslim country and we Muslims never considered it a Muslim country, and I don’t care about its official name as an Islamic republic, it is just a fake name. Second, the homosexuals exist everywhere but they are higher in non Muslim countries , at least we do not approve gay marriage like you. Third , even if most raping cases are not reported in Muslim countries as you say, they are still 1000,000 times lower than in non Muslim countries because rape is a fatal and unforgiving crime for Muslims and even if the secular laws can’t help the raped person sometimes, but you will still be considered as a rapist and everyone will revenge from you , so the conclusion is in a Muslim country if someone wants to rape, he would think 1000 times before doing it , unlike a western or a non Muslim country.

          • Avadon

            You are a total disingenuous moron!

            “Islam is the religion of 99.4% of Iranians. 90-95% of Iranians are Shi’a and 5-10% are Sunni. Most Sunnis in Iran are Larestani people (from Larestan), Turkomen, Baluchs, and Kurds living in the south, southeast, northeast and northwest.[1] Almost all of Iranian Shi’as are Twelvers.”

            Wikipedia says so.

          • Alp Arslan

            Haha , always the Western / Christian ignorance about Islam ..put your Wikipedia in your ass , you are so stupid and more ignorant than I thought . I don’t care about your fucking Wikipedia , it is full of mistakes and lies , the truth is different . There are lots of mistakes in the Wikipedia especially the information about Muslim world . Those statistics put all Sunni, Shia, Sufi, Baha’i …ect under the name of Islam which is VERY wrong and a bunch of ignorance. The real and only Muslims are the Sunni . like for example , Christian Orthodox do not recognize protestants , Catholic and Jehowa Witness as Christians !

          • Avadon

            It’s a fact dumbshi*t. Deal with it! You are a racist bigot.

            Alp, you’re an idiot. I was raised a Jehovah’s Witness (left after I woke up and realized it was a cult) and even though the mainstream religions view it as a cult, it is, it still falls under the classification of being a Christian denomination. So it makes no difference whatsoever if you don’t personally recognize the different branches of Islam, the fact of the matter remains that Iran is a Muslim country.

          • Sam Dselva

            when they find not even one muslim country is in the list , then the reason changes “it is not reported” any way .How you know it is not reported. “homosexuals in Iran”—what thathas to do with rape, and what punishment iran gives to homosexulas. “because the rape is not a crime in the islam world, just like the pedophilia.”—-If is is not a crime in muslim world then try it in Saudi Arabia, Your head would be rolling down the road the next day.

          • The Lady We’ll Call Dee

            Oh really? If you’ve been in an “Islamic country” it was probably because you were deployed there by the military, so let’s see just how “rapey” Islam really is, because there are PLENTY of articles that show US TROOPS doing the raping. I suggest you get your head out of your flag and do some research. Idiot.

          • Nope not even close and I am in the middle east right now it almost 1000 PM and still close to 90. So maybe you should go someplace and quit doing research from Wiki. There is a whole world out there Dee and you are al’abalah.

          • Papapau

            Because reporting a rape case in muslim countries can be deadly. Rape still happens everywhere, and the point it not having rape statistics is a lot severe cause it just says that rape victims are just kept silent or else. Please think before defending desert shit morality muslim countries.

          • Alp Arslan

            No matter what you say you shit head .. even if raping cases are not all reported in Muslim countries , they are still 1000,000 times lower than non Muslim countries , because rape is a fatal and grave crime that does not pass easily . Actually if you rape someone in a Muslim country I guarantee that you will be seriously punished from people even if the secular laws consider you non guilty , so if someone wants to rape here , he will think 1000 times before doing it , not like in a Western or a non Muslim country . And I also advise you to check the rates of HIVS and AIDS , you will find that the top countries having it are non Muslim countries , which means that the what you call desert morality for me is 1000 times better than your shity fake civilization that brought nothing to humanity but disease and degradation .

            Hahahahaha! Hilarious! Respect is not shown by genital mutilation , forcing children to marry paedophiles, making girls and women marry their rapists (yeah, how does that happen if there are no rapes, genius?), killing of women for ‘crimes against chastity’ because some hideous Muslim rapes them – well, the list goes on.

          Sweden bro. Most of the rapes reported there are committed by foreigners or non swedes. Aka most of the Islamic population that has migrated there.

          • Alp Arslan

            Muslims in Sweden are just 3 % of the whole population , are you telling me that those 3 % are more active in raping crimes than the 97 % ? not logic . because the major problem that a Muslim face in Sweden and Scandinavian countries especially is the ultra liberal and open society , while a Muslim is raised mainly to be conservative in some points which makes him worry of not being able to merge in a totally different society .

          • Avadon

            Rape went up 1400% in Sweeden after the swell in muslim migration. It is a muslim related problem! Muslim men have no respect for western women, hell they have no respect for muslim women.

          • Alp Arslan

            1400 % ? wow ! what kind of statistic is that ? you are nothing but a stupid brain washed like many westerns, instead of saying the truth and call it a local Swedish problem, you are calling it a muslim related problem which is not logic because as I mentioned Muslims are just 3 % in Sweeden

          • Avadon

            I can’t hear what rape promoting islamapologists say. You’re a disgusting human being. Go blow yourself.

            I’m not defending any rapists you stupid moron , if I remain silent and everybody remains silent , so who will teach a stupid ignorant like you ? don’t try to make the conversation so personal because it makes you weak and stupid , and by the way I speak and write 5 languages , what about you?

          • beetroot

            Straight to insulting a woman, huh? You probably claim to be a moderate Muslim, too – whatever that really means. The fact that rapes increased in Sweden by 1400% is dispicable – made worse by the fact that they are supposedly just 3% of the population. Utterly unacceptable, barbaric and devoid of any redeeming qualities.

          • Alp Arslan

            Straight to insulting a woman? wow what a hypocrisy ! Making yourself blind to 99% of the facts and focussing only on 1 % is a common western habbit when it comes to Muslims . Nice attempt to change facts and make from an oppressed a guilty. yeah may be, same as you are very straight and ready to insult Muslims and claim them as responsible of every shit.. and sorry I don’t beleive in what you say because it’s not logic .

        LEADING CAUSES OF RAPE:

        MUSLIMS, NIGGERS

      • Avadon

        If you think rape is bad in first world nations what about in Yemen or Nigeria. Oh that’s right, there is no rape there, because if you reported it you’d be put to death. Facts like that make these types of opinion pieces look wildly erroneous.

        • Joy Handy

          You are right that rape is a major issue there. Really it’s a global issue in general. And men are not the only ones doing it, and sometimes men are a victim too.

          • Avadon

            Yes and the real rape epidemic is not on college campus’ but in prisons around the world. Again here only first world nations keep track of these stats but they are mind boggling. The amount of male on male rape really is worthy of the term “rape culture.” But you won’t see feminists with signs demanding to end epidemic level prison rape against men. They are too busy complaining about man-spreading on subways.

          • Joy Handy

            Yeah I think rape in or out of prison is a more important issue than “man spreading” on subways. People need to actually think before bitching about something. As in they need to pick something worthwhile to actually make a big deal about. Man spreading being peoples issue is just as useless to think about, as all the constant Kardashian news.

    • BOBYDO

      Rape is having unwanted sexual interactions. Also in western countries, especially the UK women are encourage to report rape, but are also encouraged to drop charges. In fact in the UK they even have an option where women can even remove any rape report they made and drop charges (not very special).

      • Cainisable1

        Not necessarily. In NY, rape is vaginal intercourse with a penis. If it is penis to anus that is not rape. That is considered a criminal sexual act. I cannot speak for the UK but at least in New York it is taken very seriously and it would be considered official misconduct if an officer or detective were to try to convince the victim to recind their allegations. So again, rape may be slightly different depending on the country, or in the US it can vary by state.

      • Avadon

        No, rape virtually the world over is considered non-consensual vaginal penetration and/or sodomy. It is not coined as “unwanted sexual attraction” as rape is more defined and leverages higher sentencing. Everything that is not rape is still considered sexual assault, but rape is a sexual assault.

        I’ve never seen anywhere in the UK where women are encouraged to drop the charges. Show me evidence of that wild claim.

  • Kill Rape

    Hello World. I am a common person. A person leaving among you. I seek your guidance for fighting against the same cause that we have being thinking for over a century. How many more years do we just sit and watch crime to increase. Are we going to do anything or wait for government to take action. I say we stand up for the cause to save women before we realize our loved ones being the victims of rape. I have these thoughts where I feel that public should start punishing the guilty and broadcast the same to the world to bring awareness among the corrupt that its high time to stop or else we start. Please share your thoughts on this.

      John Doe Vigilante?

      • Joy Handy

        The legal system is such a joke that being a Vigilante is damn near the only way to get any justice at all. My daughter when 4yrs old got molested, the cops didn’t do squat to help. I put her into counseling. I also went to the molesters house and beat the shit out of him. Sometimes you have to get your hands dirty.

        • Avadon

          That’s nonsense. There probably wasn’t any evidence and you may have just beaten an innocent person. That’s assuming this story is true which I don’t believe because you’ve been deceptive all over this page.

          • Joy Handy

            And how would you not believe such a young child, that has told the cops the exact same story twice. Kids that young don’t do that if they are making shit up. Then she started loosing her sanity so I put her in counseling. If you want to take the molesters side, then that’s your right. Years later I met others that said they knew him to be a molester as well. And I don’t get how or where I have been deceptive. I have only been stating my thoughts, and events I have witnessed. But you are so high on your horse that you think everyone is wrong.

  • Eivind K

    This list isn’t credible. The problem is that it compares unrelated things. It’s well-known that police-reports generally account for a low fraction of rapes, and also that reporting-rates are lower where the police is doing a poor job and/or enjoy less trust by the local citizens. So when more rapes are reported to the police, that is in many cases a GOOD thing, because it’s indicative of a better functioning and/or more trusted police

    You have to compare like for like if you want to make any comparison relevant. And that’s not being done here.

    Fun part is all those who are getting judgemental just looking at the numbers. These are based on crimes reported and there are many other countries which are worse than the ones on this list but since those cases go unreported people think they are the safest place for women. I am happy that my country India is in the list because after 2012 awareness and social cooperation has helped most(not all of them as of now) women to report injustice. We are not perfect as of now but Insha’Allah one day we will be a country where there will be religious and gender equality.

    How the girl do not like to be raped and they are wearing a short and and open hair and makeup.
    So if we are like Muslims.What will happen?

    • Joy Handy

      Because women have rights just like men. Basically if someone walks by nude, those who see it should have enough integrity and restraint, to let the person alone. No one, male or female, should have their body violated for any reason what so ever. Rape is a crime of power not sex. A woman looking tempting is just an excuse. Otherwise the old or ugly wouldn’t be raped also. People need to take personal responsibility, and have self control even if a hot woman walks in naked. Yes the woman should not be dressed to show off her goodies, but even if she does, she doesn’t deserve to be violated. How would men like it if they got raped, because they are in pants, or have some other attraction to another. What if men raped men as easily and often as they do women. What if women got a device and started rapeing the men because they found them too attractive.

  • Robert Murray

    White countries is only here because of immigrants. India does not have that many rapes per-capita either. South Africa has a similar amount of rapes to India and India has 40 times as many people.

    • Kalle

      You cant compare different countries with different laws against each other and countries with different views on what actually counts as rape. In sweden they recently changed the law so that if a person was raped frequently over a years time once a week for example that would count as 52 rapes on the record. Before this lawchange and what actually is the current law in most countries these 52 rapes counts as 1 rape on the paper. This is the reason to the mayor differences in statistics. Also the nordic countries have a lot better equality which gives women more courage to actually report even the smallest crime.
      Ps. A majority of rape cases in India, as elsewhere in the world, are never reported.

      • Avadon

      It is very well known that Muslim immigrants are behind most of this. The increase of Muslim immigrants have increased rape. You have your evidence, if a woman says a Muslim or Middle Eastern man it is evidence.

    I don’t see any muslim country in the list. I have at least two explanations for this – the first one is that the author of this article is a muslim, and the second one – the rape is not a crime in the islam world just like the pedophilia.

  • Old Shatterhand

    as I said in my comment that just was deleted – I don’t see any muslim country in the list – probably because the author of the article is a muslim and because the rape is not a crime in the islam world, just like the pedophilia.

    • armrizwan

      in muslim country the punishment for rape is cutting off the head. so only few dare to do the crime of rape.

      • Avadon

        Absolutely bullshit. Islam is a culture of rape and they never cut off heads because they’re too busy killing the victims of rape.

  • Old Shatterhand

    and again – as I said in my comment that just was deleted – I don’t see any muslim country in the list – probably because the author of the article is a muslim and because the rape is not a crime in the islam world, just like the pedophilia.

  • Old Shatterhand

    and for the third time – as I said in my comment that just was deleted – I don’t see any muslim country in the list – probably because the author of the article is a muslim and because the rape is not a crime in the islam world, just like the pedophilia.

      You are totally wrong and your comment shows how ignorant, hater and racist you are . In most Muslim countries , the rapists are sentenced to death , that’s why the rates are the lowest , not because they are not reported as many idiots of you think . ; because any rapist would think 1000 times before raping someone . But what is the maximum penalty for raping in the western countries ? in your countries the rapist is jailed for few years and is set free to rape more and more. Google for ” Pedro Lopez ” the rapist of the Andes as an example. And by the way , the author of the article is NOT a muslim.

  • Joy Handy

    This is such a sad fact. The numbers don’t suprise me because it’s so rare to find a woman that has not been molested as a kid, or raped at some point in their lives. As a survivor of both, I find I like the idea of taking a rapist/molester, and nailing their balls to a post, that is set up in the middle of a hay barn. Give them a rusty dull knife, set the barn on fire. Let them choose to burn, or to saw their balls off with the rusty dull knife. Rapists and molesters are like a dog that kills chickens, you can’t cure the problem so you put the dog down. I know everyone has rights and feelings, but where is the care of the victim from the perpetrator. I for one am sick of women and children being the target of psychos and sick-o’s.

  • Yash Vora

    simply feeling hurtful ; btw needs to better define d thing called rape – often d charges r lowered by replacing it with molesting charges & there should b a minimum punishment to serve as deterrence to prevent rape even in attempted cases ; d care of victim & d justice can b detailed a lot to serve as guidelines

    • Avadon

      EXACTLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Andreas Pettersson

    There is no international definition on what is rape. For example Sweden (ranked 2nd on the list) have (probably) the broadest definition of rape in the world (which got even broader a couple of years ago, therefore the huge surge of reported “rapes”). I would guess that none of these countries would make the list if all woman/men in the world reported the crime, which probably won’t happen in our lifetime. It is very hard to make a list like this, but if I would be doing that, I would probably had put countries currently in war on that list, for example Syria or Nigera (were Boko Haram is doing an armed rebellion against the government of Nigeria). However, rape is a horrible crime and even one rape victim is one to many.

  • Dude

  • Вася А.

    Do you want to reduce the number of rape?
    Here’s a simple recipe: legalize prostitution, legalize any pornography, legalize drugs, legalize the personal weapons.

    • Avadon

      I don’t know about the weapons, but I do think there is a link to sexual frustration and rape and that the legalization of prostitution may decrease a significant amount of rape.

  • Llegra

    The problem with rape cases or reporting is that it is very dvisive. It has gotten to the stage where everything including poor choices with regrets later are deemed as rape. We have to be very careful to ensure that cases are prosecuted and handed the full extent of the law but, must be thoroughly investigated.

    • Avadon

      Yes reported is one thing, tried and convicted of rape by a jury of your peers is another. There are lots of reports of rape that are unfounded. I think the statistic is almost as high as 20% if I recall correctly. What an article should address is convictions of rape. Now obviously a lot of rapes are never reported, but since they are not reported it’s impossible to know what that figure is. Sometimes they will tally non-reported rapes as just a person confiding to a counselor. Well that’s not proof of rape, and yet that enters into a lot of these statistics, puffing them wildly up. A lot of women claim rape when after the consensual sex they felt ashamed or wished it never occurred. We also need to prosecute those who bring false charges.

  • Billy Bob

    This story is garbage.
    1: “Rape” is defined differently depending on what country you are in. The Western countries mentioned report on “sexual assault” which is NOT just rape (or the unwanted sexual penetration of a male/female). Sexual assault could be witnessing a “flasher” or having lewd comments directed at them by a drunk in the street.
    2: Women are free to report cases of sexual assault to police in Western nations.
    3: The rates of what is colloquially known as “rape” in Western nations is far smaller than the statistics regarding sexual assault. Actual “he knocked me down and forcibly penetrated me” types of crimes make up a tiny percentage of the statistics given.
    4: In other places, such as Islamic nations, women almost NEVER report sexual assault, as that can lead to their beating, imprisonment, further rape and possible barbaric execution.
    5: Actual rates of “rape” are almost certainly sky high in African, Islamic and other developing nations, much higher than anything that happens in the West.

  • No

    It would be even more interesting to see the race of the offenders.

  • Ministry of Men’s Affairs

    As a New Zealander I am annoyed by this web site’s claim that sexual offence complainants are ‘intimidated by the police to drop complaints’. That is simply not true. NZ police have specialist sexual abuse teams and take all such complaints seriously. If the can be accused of any intimidation it will be against the accused who are intimidated into pleading guilty (equally or more unethical but there you go). It may be correct to say that a proportion of complainants choose not to proceed down the legal route because they will inevitably be questioned in detail (and physically examined if relevant) initially by police to establish whether the evidence suggests a crime was committed and whether the evidence is sufficient for a realistic prosecution, and complainants know they are likely to be cross-examined at trial by defence lawyers implying they are telling lies. There is no way around some stress and discomfort in any fair trial process. NZ police have been criticized for sometimes not following up complaints aggressively enough but this is related to workload and resourcing.

    Further, this list of ‘Top 10 countries with maximum rape crimes’ and other similar lists misrepresent the true situation. Developed countries that take sexual crime seriously, record complaints reliably and have the state infrastructure to do so, and define sexual crime in broad ways as demanded by feminist ideology (e.g. allow consent to be retrospectively ruled as absent on various grounds even though both parties participated fully and cooperatively at the time) will show much higher officially recorded crimes and allegations than many other countries in which the risk of real sexual assault is actually much greater.

    • BHIP ENERGY DRINKS

      They author of this is a muslim, he’s just trying to make Islamic countries seem innocent and pure. Most Islamic countries don’t report Rape so apparently it’s not included. But don’t worry, People know New Zealand is not a rape capital, The Muslim Author just wanted to make islamic countries seem better when their not.

  • James Walsh

    The list is nonsense really because women can’t report when they are raped in Muslim countries, as they are the ones who will be punished The rape rates in places like Egypt or Yemen could be sky high, but no one really knows? Also DRC in Africa has very high rates of rape and sexual abuse but isn’t on the list?

    There a few countries I had in mind before reading this article that I’m surprised aren’t on here. Renowned sexist countries. But I suppose those sexist countries won’t consider rape as the offence it’s considered in westernised countries… So I’m sure those countries where women’s voices aren’t heard have plenty cases of rape – they’re just not considered an important issue.

    Simply stop drinking, most of the rapist are under influence of alcohol. And women should dress more properly. Added with tough penalty, rape cases will drop dramatically. No other way. We banned alcohol in Pakistan because of religious reason but that also made our streets and homes safer for our daughters.
