BJP MLA Blames Boyfriend Culture For Sexual Abuse

By  | 

The great thing about a diverse country like India is that you wake up to a wonderful surprise everyday. And women especially are lucky to be living here.

Every morning, you find that a politician has effectively consumed his own foot, but not before making some stellar observations about how we should behave and what could potentially be a reason for us getting raped. Because who doesn’t want that?

And yesterday, from the same man that claimed that Virat Kohli was unpatriotic for getting married in Tuscany, came another gem. The BJP MLA, Pannalal Shakya from Madhya Pradesh, firmly put the blame of increasing cases of rape and molestation on women’s shoulders.

The obviously erudite gentleman says that the ‘boyfriend culture’ is responsible for the growing instances of abuse. Boyfriend culture may sound like something that happens in a lab, but we assure you, it’s not. This is Pannalal being against western culture. 

We want to be appalled but we will save it for another day. At this point, there are children shouldering more responsibility than the men in our country.
