Rapes occur in India, not Bharat: Bhagwat remarks catches fire

New Delhi, January 04:

There can be no basis to distinguish between rural and urban India when it comes to crimes against women, union Home Secretary R.K. Singh said Friday following RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat's remark that Rapes occur in India, not Bharat and "westernisation" in Indian cities was the reason behind increasing cases of rape.

"There is no basis for making distinction between India and Bharat," Singh said on the sidelines of a function Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and System here.

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Bhagwat had said in Assam that crimes such as rape "hardly take place in Bharat, but they occur frequently in India".

"You go to villages and forests of the country and there will be no such incidents of gang-rape or sex crimes. They are prevalent in some urban belts. Besides new legislations, Indian ethos and attitude towards women should be revisited in the context of ancient Indian values," Bhagwat had told a gathering of RSS workers in Silchar, Assam.

The RSS chief's controversial remark comes days after the death of a 23-year-old woman who was brutally gang-raped on a moving bus in south Delhi Dec 16. The incident has led to loud protests in Delhi and elsewhere to demand justice for the woman and stringent anti-rape laws and more security.

A minor correction Sir

Bhagwat Saahab, your statement needs to be fixed. Rapes do not get reported in Bharat (Rural India) but get reported in India (Urban Bharat). Rapes are more rampant in Bharat but few dare to report or file FIR. What happened in Gujarat? Is your BJP ruled state not Bharat?

Bharat

Bhagwat you are an idiot, in english Bharat is called India.

Idiot what about the Tantrik's case in Bharat

The most recent Tantrik case is the case of Bharat and evil practices of idol worshppers. What does he say about this.

Young and educated people should get on the roads and get this old faces out of media and politics.
