A grave news shook Tricity on Wednesday when a 22-year old woman was gang-raped allegedly by an Auto rickshaw driver and his two accomplices. Apparently, the 22-year-old was returning back to her Paying Guest in Mohali from Sector 37, Chandigarh. Following the incident Chandigarh MP, Kirron Kher is being trolled for blaming the victim. Apparently, in a Press Conference on Wednesday Kirron Kher said that the girl should not have boarded the Auto Rickshaw when there were already three men in it.
Bachi ki samajhdaari ko bhi main thoda sa kehna chahti hun… saari bachiyon ko.. ki already jab koi teen aadmi baithe hue hain uske andar… to aapko usme bethna nahi chadhna chaeye tha….I am saying this to protect the girls…..said Kirron Kher
Hum log bhi kabhi taxi lete the Mumbai mein… to kisi na kisi ko bhi..jo hamare sath hota tha… usse taxi ka number likha dete the.. because we wanted our safety as girls.. I remember as a girl… so mujhe lagta hai hum sab ko aaj kal ke zamane mein in cheezon ke liye sakhat hona padega (Whenever we took a taxi in Mumbai, we used to let someone know the taxi number …I feel that in these times, we also have to be more careful about these things).Ever since her statement people started trolling her for blaming the victim. But the MP took to social media to clarify that her statement was taken out of context and politicised. In a tweet explaining what she really wanted to say about the incident she said, "I strongly believe that women safety is an enduring and continuous process in our country. Yesterday, my statement about the gang rape in Chandigarh was taken out of context and gravely politicised." https://twitter.com/KirronKherBJP/status/936189721868427264
