The Budaun Rape case has been the getting the headlines for a past few days, and in new development over the rape case of a 50 year old woman who was raped in premises is that an NCW member Chandramukhi rather than blaming the accused, has actually pointed fingers at women who go to temples in the evening hours.
To quote the NCW member- Chandramukhi, “women should not come under influence of someone and roam around in the odd hours, And also believe that if she wouldn’t have gone to temple in the evening, she would not have been raped”
Giving a lecture on the time the women go out be it to a temple or other places felt like a right basis for these derogatory statements by the NCW member Chandramukhi.
Rather than blaming and making the state and city a safer place, the politicians and members are coming up with the lamest of excuses to cover up a dreadful act. Imagine now there is a certain time as well- especially for women to go out- be it to the temple, or other vicinities around them because, in the evening hours, men prey around. This was not expected of a member of the National Commission of Women (NCW).
