Richa Chadha & Rahul Bhat Decode WTF Quotes by Politicians on Rape
India has seen a rapid rise in... rape cases.
Every time there’s a rape in the country, our politicians throw some gems of wisdom to make us feel better and safer. Their profound and scientific statements become a joke on social media and our accomplished leaders are ridiculed despite being so efficient and sensitive. Is it because we always fail to understand what they really mean?
We got actors Richa Chadha and Rahul Bhat to decode some of these gems. We wanted to dive deep to come up with more such pearls, but there were simply too many. And there’s only that much wisdom we could handle.
Since it wasn’t possible to put it all in one video, here are some more treasures from our esteemed leaders on why and how rapes occur.
Yes, of course. Women in our country consent to rape, they are only “forced” into marriage.
That makes perfect sense. Where can women buy rape-proof clothes? Amazon or Flipkart?
Thank you for that important lesson in zoology. When a guy teases a girl, should she just sing, “kabootar ja ja” and that should do the job?
Logic: Boys are boys, they will rape. Girls can commit suicide if they don’t like being raped, why should men be hanged for the same?
Lesson of the day: When everything else fails, leave it Bhagwaan Bharose.
