Mamata Bannerjee: Interacting with the opposite gender and holding hands invites rape

Filed under: India — Jag @ 9:54 pm

So says the Chief Minister of India’s West Bengal state, according to an article on IBN Live. See below. No mention of the state’s duty to provide law and order, or to make women feel safe. If you’re assaulted, its because you brought it upon yourself.

“Mamata said that rape cases are on a rise in the country because men and women interact with each other more freely now. “Earlier if men and women would hold hands, they would get caught by parents and reprimanded but now everything is so open. It’s like an open market with open options,” she said.”
