New Delhi: Amid the nationwide outrage over the Hathras gang rape and murder incident, a shocker comes from a BJP leader from UP’s Ballia who said that in order to control over the rape cases, it’s the duty of all mothers and fathers to imbibe good values in their daughters and bring them up in cultured environments.
“I am a teacher along with being an MLA. Such incidents (like rape) can be stopped only with sanskar (culture), not with shasan (good governance) or talwar (referring to sword or might),” BJP MLA Surendra Singh .
The reporter had asked him a question: “Why do you think rape cases are continue even as is people say this is Ram Rajya?”
“It’s my dharma, government’s dhrama but family’s dharma too… While government is committed to protect, the family should be committed too to imbibe good values in their children. Sanskar and sarkaar can make India beautiful, there is no other alternative,” he answered.
