Do you remember the Delhi bus gangrape case? A girl was gangraped and an iron rod was inserted to intestine through her vagina, just for fun. Indian people, for the first time, take to the streets to protest against rape! You remember. Don’t you think the gangrapists in the jail are regretting and crying for their crimes? They realized they were wrong! They promised they would never commit crimes again!
Mukesh Singh said: “Women who went out at night had only themselves to blame if they attracted the attention of gangs of male molesters. A girl is far more responsible for rape than a boy.”
He claimed that had Jyoti, the victim, and her friend not tried to fight back, the gang would not have not have inflicted the savage beating, which led her to die from her injuries two weeks later.
He said, “When being raped, she shouldn’t fight back. She should just be silent and allow the rape. Then they’d have dropped her off after ‘doing her’, and only hit the boy.”
He said, “You can’t clap with one hand – it takes two hands. A decent girl won’t roam around at 9 o’clock at night. A girl is far more responsible for rape than a boy. Boy and girl are not equal. Housework and housekeeping is for girls, not roaming in discos and bars at night doing wrong things, wearing wrong clothes. About 20 per cent of girls are good.”
Said, “The death penalty will make things even more dangerous for girls. Before, they would rape and say, ‘Leave her, she won’t tell anyone.’ Now when they rape, especially the criminal types, they will just kill the girl. Death.”
His lawyer AP Singh said, “If my daughter or sister engaged in pre-marital activities and disgraced herself and allowed herself to lose face and character by doing such things, I would most certainly take this sort of sister or daughter to my farmhouse, and in front of my entire family, I would put petrol on her and set her alight.”
In the BBC documentary, he adds that his stance has not changed: “This is my stand. I still today stand on that reply.”
Another lawyer ML Sharma said, “In our society, we never allow our girls to come out from the house after 6:30 or 7.30 or 8.30 in the evening with any unknown person.”
Can you believe it? You may not believe it, but I do.
They became misogynists while growing up in a patriarchal society. No imprisonment, not even death penalty can change their misogynistic mindset.
