While addressing an election rally Mulayam said: "Rape is a mistake. Boys commit mistake." Really humiliating, absurd. How come the heinous crime of rape can be dubbed as a mistake?
On one of the posts featuring Mulayam's outrageous remark on rape and his open support to rapists on Facebook, Vikram Singh Gill reacted by saying: "If same things happens to Shri Mulayam Singh's family girl then will he repeat the same lines what he said." Vikram's take on Mulayam's remark definitely represents the outrage his comment has been fetching.
Leading women groups and activists are criticizing Mulayam for the humiliating remark. Will he pay heed to them? I don't think so. For Mulayam votes matter, no matter how they are garnered. Really shocking and ludicrous!!! You want to garner votes from rapists. Shame!!! I want to ask you- Mr. Mulayam Singh - is this how you will govern this nation. Your remark only depicts your medieval, regressive psyche. For you women's body is a commodity, encroach, suppress and move on. Have you ever attempted to comprehend the trauma of the victim of brutal crime of rape? Why will you?
Mulayam is against capital punishment. During that infamous speech, the so-called self-proclaimed patron of OBCs and Minorities, also made it crystal clear his stand on capital punishment for rape. He openly came out in support of the serial rapists, who were sentenced to death in Mumbai's Shakti Mill rape case. Even in the heinous crime of rape, this self-proclaimed future Prime Minister of India is implementing minority vote bank card. For me a criminal is a criminal irrespective of religion he follows.
Here I would like to quote few lines written by leading motivational writer, Shiv Khera. Khera says: "Those we don't trust as guardians of our children, why we make them guardians of the nation."
