Indian politics, unfortunately, has quite an alarming number of leaders who are known for making ridiculous statements on sexual assaults and sexuality. Whether it’s Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Mulayam Singh Yadav who claimed that rape by four people is not practical and possible or Janata Dal – United (JD-U) president Sharad Yadav who had said, “Who amongst us has not followed girls?”, some politicians have ensured that their statements consistently inspire facepalms.
Keeping this trend alive, a senior leader of Communist Party of India (CPI) Atul Anjan, has recently said that Sunny Leone’s condom advertisements will lead to a rise in the number of rapes in India.
“Sunny Leone naam ki ek aurat hai. Duniya ki sabse nangi filmon ki woh heroine rahi hai (There is a woman called Sunny Leone. She has been the heroine in nude films),” said Anjan, as he began his rant against the actress.
Anjan then referred to a condom ad which featured Sunny Leone and said, “Agar condom ke is tarah ke prachaar desh ke television aur akhbaaron mein chale, toh rape ki ghatnaaein badhengi (If such condom ads are shown on the country’s television sets and in newspapers, then the number of rape incidents will increase).”
The CPI leader did not stop there. He also said that the condom ad “developed sexuality.”, as if that is a sin. Ironically, Anjan added that an ad which encourages people to practise safe sex “destroys your sensibility”.
Anjan also said that he had never watched a single porn film in his life. But when he did watch porn for the first time, “do minute dekhne ke baad ulti hoti hai (After watching two minutes, I feel like vomiting).”
