Do you really think that's true? That rape in India is treated as or more seriously than in European countries?

I have not been to India, and am not insulted by it.

Are you claiming to have been to India?

You've admitted it was "Northern Europeans" you believe are self-righteous. In the context of a discussion about attitudes towards rape the natural conclusion would be that you're saying Northern Europeans are self-righteous in regard to rape, but if that's not the case, what are you saying they are self-righteous about?
