A while ago, the Chief of RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh) proclaimed that there are no rapes in Bharat; they take place in India.


There are others in RSS’s political front Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) who blame women victims for the rape. “Girls should dress decently to not lure boys”, says BJP’s Karnal MLA (Member of Legislative Assembly) Manohar Lal Khattar (who has now been appointed as Chief Minister of Haryana by the BJP after the recent election).


On a question about Khap panchayats and their rulings, Khattar said, “Khaps maintain the tradition of a girl and boy being brother and sister. They are just making sure that a girl and boy do not see each other in the wrong way. These rulings help prevent rapes too.”
