10 ridiculous statements and comments on woman #Vaw

Actually in India there is no shortage of political leaders, celebs, famous personalities and other public speakers who think it’s their birth right to poke and comment in a cowardly manner about woman and rape. It’s very difficult for a survivor of a rape case who actually deals with number of problems like social worlds, delay in justice, mental torture, etc. people who pass such painful comments don’t even realize that their comments adds like salt to their wounds. Even cops and media ask the victim about how it happened, where it happened, what were you doing? Some politicians commented by saying that woman’s are at the fault, they give chance to boys, boys will be boys; such comments are showcasing Indian ethics and moral values in International countries.

Here is a list of statements passed on by politicians, leaders, celebrities on rape and there mindset about woman:

1.       Mulayam Singh Yadav – Boys will be boys

#FOE" data-image-description="<h1>Silence Is Deafening, Are My Fears Unfounded?</h1> <div>My greatest immediate fear is the attack on freedom of expression.</div> <div> <div><img alt="Nandita Das, Actress/filmmaker" src=";w=220" width="220" height="328" /></p> <div>Nandita Das, Actress/filmmaker</div> </div> <div></div> </div> <div>Magazine | 26 May 2014</p> <div>Nandita Das</div> </div> <div> <div> <p>The election of a new government in India is the result of a democratic exercise so vast that any critique of the mandate needs to be respectful. And more so, if it is a pre-emptive one. Yet, there are good reasons why some of us are fearful. Let’s begin with the much-proclaimed promise of ‘development’ and the great enthusiasm among the middle and elite classes for the ‘Gujarat model’. Just for the record, the state has always been among the more enterprising and prosperous ones. And in the last decade, even by the simplistic yardstick of economic growth, Maharashtra, Bihar and Tamil Nadu have done better than Gujarat. In any case, economic growth is not the only measure of success, as a large number of Indians are marginalised and suffer on many other counts. Will their voices be heard in an economic model driven above all by corporate policies? Will there be any focus on social measures that are so crucial for the underprivileged? Will the ‘development’ be inclusive and for all?</p> <p>While we are being asked to move past the 2002 carnage, there is no hesitation in invoking memories of the Partition or going as far back as Babar! What scares me is that let alone any remorse, apology or concern for those whose scars have still not healed, there is a fearful rise in prejudice and its legitimacy. Clearly evident in these elections is a religiously charged ethos, created through the campaign, revealing that under the ‘development’ story the core remains divisive politics. Amit Shah’s speeches in Muzaffarnagar, Modi’s refusal to wear the skull cap, while he wore every other headgear during the campaign, Praveen Togadia asking Muslims to be thrown out of “Hindu areas”, to name a few.</p> <p>But my greatest immediate fear is the attack on freedom of expression. Democracy works because there is room for differences that enable people to change their minds and governments and voice their dissent in ways that are civil and democratic. The BJP and its supporters have always been too eager to silence critics through blatant censorship and vandalism. I have personally suffered during the release of<em>Fire</em> and the making of <em>Water</em>. But never did I know that even making a harmless appeal to vote for secular parties would invite such wrath from the Modi supporters. Today my differing view has been responded to by such crass tweets like “Take your kid and go to Pakistan”! The dangerous subtext is alarming.</p> <p>In 2008, I made <em>Firaaq</em>, a film on how ordinary people grappled with the aftermath of the Gujarat carnage. The film did not point fingers, yet the stand taken against violence was clear. While it got much appreciation and accolades, it also got flak from those who chose to see it with a less open mind. The release of the film saw dismal returns, and I was told that primarily it was because it came too close to theelections. Nevertheless, the film did get released. But today, if I had to release the film, even after the elections and the projected victory of the NDA, I think it would face far more blatant opposition. As an artist, I feel vulnerable and threatened much more today than I have ever felt before. For the first time, I can feel media self-censoring itself, playing safe—an indication of times to come. The silence is going to be deafening and the naysayers very few. Today I ask myself, are my fears truly unfounded?</p> </div> </div> " data-medium-file="" data-large-file="" class="size-full wp-image-38053 aligncenter" src="" alt="Mulayam-Singh-Yadav,-Samajwadi-Party-Leader" width="651" height="386" />

Former Chief Minister of Samajwadi party commented by saying “boys will be boys”and that they “make mistakes”should go down in to the history as the example of a leader who has little or no concern about the like-altering consequences of rape. “Rape accused should not be hanged. Men make mistakes.” He had added that, “When their friendship ends, the girl complains she has been raped.”

(Considering the fact that Indian male or we must say boys commit mistakes and must not be punished. Will you react and comment in the same way when it happens to your wife or any female in your family? I hope you need a second thought.)

 2.  Akhilesh Yadav- Aapko toh khatra nahin hua 

Akhilesh Yadav 6

Current Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh did not directly pointed out fingers about rape or their survivors or on the victims, but yes he reacted insensitively about the gang rape and murders of 2 dalit sisters in Badaun.

(Mr Yadav you said it’s not as if you faced any danger. Can you please elaborate what you meant by this? Or did you mean if such incidents take place we should not raise until it harms each and every individual?)

3.       SP MP Ram Gopal Yadav – TV brings vulgarity into homes

Yadav is the senior leader of Rajya Sabha said that media was  defaming the image of the country especially Uttar Pradesh in specific. He particularly pointed out at Badaun rape case and murder and also blamed television for bringing obscenity into several homes and

(Sir, can you please stop pointing out at the media, as it fulfils it duty and responsibility towards society of making them aware of the current situation)

4. Abu Azmi – Even the woman is guilty 

Another leader from Samajwadi party and father in law of Ayesha Takia, crossed all limits and said that those women who get raped should be hanged and also that just because by virtue of the fact that married women have extramarital sex they should be punished along with the rapist. “Rape is punishable by hanging in Islam. But here, nothing happens to women, only to men. Even the woman is guilty.” “Solution is this: any woman if, whether married or unmarried, goes along with a man, with or without her consent, should be hanged. Both should be hanged. It shouldn’t be allowed even if a woman goes by consent.”

(Sir, here we people are talking about rape, I hope you understand this term very well. And for God’s sake please don’t link this with religion)

5. Mamata Banerjee – Sajano ghotona  to malign the government

 The allegation made by an Anglo-Indian woman that she was brutally raped in a car at a classy locality in Kolkata. West Bengal’s Chief Minister Mamata being a woman first passed such comments is shocking.

(We mean Ma’am are you seriously unaware of the situation. How can you say such a thing?)

6. Asaram Bapu –  Victim daughter is Guilty as her rapists


Asaram self claimed as the Godmen, commented on Delhi Rape case by saying that the victim daughter is as guilty as her rapists…She should have called the culprits brothers and begged before them.

(I think we must practice what we preach. As you also committed the same mistake and now you are behind bars along with your son)

7.  Ashok Singhal, VHP international advisor – Live-in relationships


According to him foreign and western culture are rising and concept of live-in relationships are not only foreign to our culture, but also hostile. Virginity was preserved, but the purity has been totally disturbed now.

(Sir it’s high time we appoint some other person in your place or start with virginity campaign sort of thing)

8. Abhijit Mukherjee, MP  – beautiful women’s are usually highly dented-painted


Member of Parliament from West Bengal and son of India’s President Pranab Mukheerjee commented by saying Indians woman’s are mostly highly dented and painted.

(Sir, there is no such act passed or implemented where in men can’t go to the spa or saloons for getting dented and painted)

9.       Raj Thackeray – Behind every rape Bihari is involved 


Raj Thackeray, founder of MNS said that all are talking about the Delhi gang rape, but no one is talking about the fact that all these rapists are from Bihar. The system has collapsed…”

 (Mr Thackeray do you remember the Marine Drive rape case? There was no Bihari involved)

10. Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar, Trinamool Congress MP – Kind of misunderstanding


Datidar representing Trinamool Congress stated that “The Park Street rape is a different case altogether. That was not at all a rape case. It was a misunderstanding between the two parties involved between a lady and her client…”.

(With this kind of understanding about rape the police will be sitting idle in coming days.)
