    Asaram Bapu's unacceptable remark


    by TimesNow

    Self-styled Godman Asaram Bapu is the latest one to join the moral brigade over crimes against women. In an outrageous comment, Bapu said that the December 16 Delhi gang rape victim should have begged the rapists to stop, adding that the victim is as guilty as the rapists. The spiritual gurus remark comes at a time when the entire nation is mourning the death of the 23-year-old brave heart who died in a Singapore hospital 13 days later after the heinous crime. The spiritual leader is not the only one who has made such insensitive remarks in recent times. President Pranab Mukherjee's son and Congress's sitting MP from Jangipur, Abhijit Mukherjee, Trinamool Congress MP Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar, Madhya Pradesh Minister Kailash Vijaywargiya have all courted controversy through their outrageous comments in recent times over crimes against women.
