Mulayam Singh Yadav, the chief of Samajwadi Party said in a rally at Moradabad that ?Rape accused shouldn't be hanged. Boys make mistakes'. He further said that he will support provisions for legal action against those who misuse anti-rape law.
The statement may look simple but really represent a poor mindset.
For example the new anti-rape law doesn't carry a death penalty.
Capital punishment will only be applicable if the rape charge is
associated with murder or attempt to murder. Thus saying that rape
accused shouldn't be hanged, in fact Mulayam Singh Yadav indirectly
making himself against death penalty for the rape accused who even
murder the victim?
Again what it means to say boys make mistake? Does he think rape
is a mistake? If he thinks so can he be a Prime Ministerial candidate
in our country? Isn't he admitting himself as a supporter of the
feudal mindset like the Khap Panchayats!
Already he did a blunder in endorsing Ajam Khan's attempt to
divide Indian Army on religious basis although he was a former
defense minister. He could be Prime Minister had V.P. Singh didn't
spoil his party!
Many UP people & SP supporters see him as a potential Prime
Ministerial candidate. How can he display such irresponsible mindset?
One can understand for the sake of vote, many go little beyond
established decency. But has he not gone too far with such
He might be thinking UP voters are fool. He must have to do
serious introspection in his speeches/comments on public platform,
else would be sent to oblivion by sensible citizens of the country!
