Crime statistics and corruption are hard to track in India so whatever statistics one may find will be largely misleading. What is generally accepted is theft and murder in India is much higher than in Canada on a per capita basis. Prostitution and rape statistics are as well difficult to calculate but generally accepted to be higher than in Canada. Government corruption is generally accepted and one stat that is measurable is the amount of assassinated political figures in India and Canada. Canada has only had one notable politician murdered in the last hundred years while India has had two Prime Ministers assassinated, one while in office and a third who is considered to have been killed in office but unverified.
