After Unnao rape case in which BJP MLA is allegedly involved and a heinous crime in Kathua where a 8-year-old girl was raped and killed, the crime against woman is once again a major topic that is hitting the news across the nation. But still there are some people who think women are equally responsible for rape. Even a BJP MLA who came forward in support of his colleague MLA saying that noone would rape a mother of three children. However here are some things that have been said publicly about rape by prominent leaders and authority figures in India.

1. “The victim is as guilty as her rapists. … She should have called the culprits brothers and begged before them to stop.”

– Rapist Asaram Bapu on the Delhi gang rape and murder

– Spiritual leader and alleged rapist Asaram Bapu on the Delhi gang rape and murder"Only 5–6 people are not the culprits," Firstpost reported Bapu saying. "The victim is as guilty as her rapists. … She should have called the culprits brothers and begged before them to stop. … This could have saved her dignity and life. Can one hand clap? I don't think so."Had she recited the Saraswati mantra, she would not have boarded any bus after watching a movie with her boyfriend."

 

2. “Boys are boys, they make mistakes.”

 -Mulayam Singh Yadav– Mulayam Singh Yadav, Samajwadi party chief"Boys and girls ... later they had differences, and the girl went and gave a statement that I have been raped," Yadav said while campaigning in Moradabad. "And then the poor fellows, three of them have been sentenced to death. Should rape cases lead to hanging? Boys are boys, they make mistakes. Two or three have been given the death sentence in Mumbai. We will try and change such laws. ... We will also ensure punishment of those who report false cases."

3. “Rape is a social crime which depends on the man and the woman. It is sometimes right and sometimes wrong.”

4. “Where ‘Bharat’ becomes ‘India’ with the influence of western culture, these type of incidents happen.”

– Mohan Bhagwat, RSS chief, after the Delhi gang rape

– Mohan Bhagwat, RSS chief, after the Delhi gang rape"Crimes against women happening in urban India are shameful. It is a dangerous trend. But such crimes won't happen in Bharat or the rural areas of the country. You go to villages and forests of the country and there will be no such incidents of gang rape or sex crimes. "Where 'Bharat' becomes 'India' with the influence of Western culture, these type of incidents happen. The actual Indian values and culture should be established at every stratum of society where women are treated as 'mother'."

5. Rapes are on the rise because “men and women interact with each other more freely now”.

– Mamata Banerjee, chief minister of West Bengal

 

– Mamata Banerjee, chief minister of West Bengal"Earlier if men and women would hold hands, they would get caught by parents and reprimanded, but now everything is so open," Banerjee said. "It's like an open market with open options."On news channels highlighting rape stories: "Every evening, these people have juicy discussions about one or two incidents [of rape]. They are insulting the mothers and daughters of Bengal day after day."Everyday rape incidents are being highlighted as if the entire state has become the land of rapists. Rape is sought to be glorified by these people. This will not be tolerated by people. I would like to say that negative journalism only destroys and it is time to champion positive journalism."
