New Delhi, June 26 : Congress President Rahul Gandhi lambasted Prime Minister Narendra Modi for making his Yoga videos when India has been declared as the first among top 10 countries where the highest number of rapes have taken place.
Hinting to the situation as similar to the phrase “Nero played the fiddle while Rome burned”, Rahul Gandhi posted a tweet, “While our PM tiptoes around his garden making Yoga videos, India leads Afghanistan, Syria & Saudi Arabia in rape & violence against women. What a shame for our country!,” tweeted Rahul.

Rahul ridiculed Modi for releasing his daily exercise and yoga routine on June 13, as part of a fitness challenge but failed to ensure safety to women and address the serious issue of increasing rape cases in the country.
Congress President was referring to a Thomson Reuters Foundation survey of 550 experts, released today, which said India is the most dangerous country in the world for women due to the high risk of sexual violence and being forced into slave labour,forced marriage and sexual slavery .
The most startling thing is that survey ranks India as more dangerous for women than war-torn Afghanistan and Syria, which came in second and third place, respectively.
War-torn Afghanistan and Syria ranked second and third in the Thomson Reuters Foundation survey of about 550 experts on women’s issues, followed by Somalia and Saudi Arabia.
