A day after prominent Samajwadi Party leaders gave weird arguments on the rising incidents of rape in the Uttar Pradesh, another member of the ruling party Mohsin Khan has come forward with yet another insensitive statement on the issue, saying rapes are natural in such a big state.
Giving his reaction on the incidents of sexual crime against women in the state, Khan said that UP is a big state and such incidents are natural to take place.
He further accused the media of not highlighting such incidents in other parts of the country.
Khan said that his government is working round-the-clock to maintain law and order in the state.
Meanwhile, reacting to SP leader’s comments, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said that the Akhilesh Yadav-led SP government is handling incidents of rape with a casual approach. The BJP leader demanded strict action against those involved in such horrific crimes.
He further cautioned the UP ministers to refrain from making insensitive statements on serious matters.
SP leaders on Wednesday gave weird arguments, saying sometimes when relationship between girls and boys come out in open, it is “termed as rape”.
“In many places, when the relationship between girls and boys come out in open, it is termed as rape. In many places, girls and boys are ready (to marry) but honour killings take place. The most saddening and serious thing is that such incidents are not stopping. These incidents happen in other places also but are not highlighted,” senior SP leader Ramgopal Yadav said.
