Samajwadi Party Leader’s Statement on Bengaluru Molestation Shows Just How Sick Our Politicians Are

Published on 3 January, 2017 at 4:36 pm By

Samajwadi Party MLA Abu Azmi shocked everyone when he seemingly blamed the women who were allegedly molested on New Year’s Eve in Bengaluru.

“In Indian culture, there should be propriety in how men and women meet. In these modern times, the more women are naked, the more fashionable, modern and educated they are considered. And this is increasing in the country. This is a blot on our culture,” he was quoted by NDTV as saying.

He said women should follow Indian culture and should not step out at night. He also advised that women should step out with their family members at night and not be alone.

“I have five daughters and I will not allow them to walk out at night without family members,” he said.

Photographs showed that thousands of revellers assembled at Bengaluru’s MG Road and Brigade Road for new year celebrations.

According to a report in Bangalore Mirror, drunk and unruly men molested and abused women in the presence of 1500 policemen. Surprisingly, such a massive police presence couldn’t prevent such a shameful act.

Shockingly, the police denied getting any calls complaining of molestation.

What was even more shocking is the statement by Karnataka Home Minister G Parameshwara in which he said that “these kind of things do happen”, and offered no apology for the police’s failure to protect the women.

Parameshwara’s statement shows the level of complacency the authorities exercise in dealing with such issues. His remarks disheartens the common man and takes his faith away from the state government and its competence to maintain law and order and ensure women’s safety.

The entire ordeal was a massive failure of the government and the police to maintain law and order in the state.

Moreover, an insensitive remark by the SP minister looks like a move to avoid responsibility or accountability.
