The Union Ministry of Women and Child Development has dismissed the findings of a recent study that proclaimed India as the most dangerous country in the world for women. Rejecting the study by Thomson Reuters, titled ‘The world’s most dangerous countries for women 2018’, the ministry said that the proclamation is based on an opinion poll rather than any report or data.

A statement by the ministry said, "Ranking is based on a perception poll based on responses to simply six questions and has been conducted with 548 respondents, which have been defined by Reuters as ‘experts focused on women’s issues’.

However, no information or opinion has been sought from this Ministry."Earlier, the National Commission for Women (NCW) had also rejected the survey, saying the number of people surveyed could in no way reflect the state of affairs in a country of 1.3 billion people. It also asserted that there could be no doubt that India is far ahead of a number of countries in terms of women's rights.
