Director of India’s FBI Equivalent Advises Women to ‘Enjoy’ Rape If Rapist Unstoppable

Posted: November 14, 2013 in Uncategorized

The director of India’s top investigation agency faces fierce criticism over his controversial comment, “if you can’t prevent rape, you enjoy it”.  Rights campaigners demanded the resignation of the country’s top investigator.

“It is sickening that a man, who is in charge of several rape  investigations, should use such an analogy. He should be  prosecuted for degrading and insulting women,” local  politician Brinda Karat told The Hindu newspaper.  

  The head of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Ranjit  Sinha, made the remark while speaking on legalizing betting in  sports.

“Do we have the enforcement?” Sinha said at a CBI  question-answer session in New Delhi on Tuesday. “If you  cannot enforce the ban on betting, it is like saying ‘if you  can’t prevent rape, you enjoy it’,” he said.  

  Sinha’s comments immediately caused outrage among women  activists, and many on the social media, who called it shameful  and “not acceptable”.
