‘Women invite sexual harassment’: Madhya Pradesh Congress leader’s shocker NDTV Bhind (Madhya Pradesh): A Congress leader in Madhya Pradesh woman has made shocking remarks, blaming women for harassment. “No man will harass a woman unless led on by her,” Madhya Pradesh Congress general secretary Satyadev Katare said in Bhind on Tuesday while addressing a gathering.
..Mr Katare’s remarks come at a time when a four-year-old girl from Jabalpur lies in a hospital in Nagpur after she was allegedly raped last week. Her alleged rapist was arrested yesterday from Bihar.
…Her case, like that of the five-year-old who was kidnapped and then raped in Delhi, has provoked a new wave of anger and underscored the vulnerability of young girls and women to sexual crimes. The outrage that followed a medical student’s fatal gang-rape in Delhi in December led to the introduction of tougher anti-rape laws last month. But a slew of assaults in cities and villages have led to renewed furore over the incompetence of the police.
Madhya Pradesh Congress leader blames women for inviting harassment Zee News Bhind: Amidst outrage across the country over increasing crime against women, a Congress leader in Madhya Pradesh has made a shocking remark, reported a news channel. According to Madhya Pradesh Congress general secretary Satyadev Katare, “Jab tak koi mahila tedhi nazar se hasegi nahi tab tak koi aadmi usse chhedega nahi (No man will harass a woman till she looks at him in a suggestive manner). Katare’s remarks received a flak from BJP spokesman and MLA Vishwas Sarang, who described the statement as highly derogatory towards women despite the fact that the president of the Congress party is a woman.
“It reflects the mentality of Congress leaders and specially in the aftermath of incidents of rape in Delhi,” Sarang said.
