    BJP leader cites abduction of Sita by Ravana to warn women

     Kailash Vijayvargiya
    New Delhi, Jan 4: When will our politicians stop making derogatory remarks on women? In the wake of the brutal Delhi gangrape of a 23-year-old paramedical student, the entire country is demanding better safety measures for women but our politicians are not ready to correct the system. Rather they are blaming the victims of sexual assault.

    In another bizarre comment from our political class, a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader from Madhya Pradesh warned women not to cross their limits or else they will be punished.

    The Madhya Pradesh Cabinet Minister Kailash Vijayvargiya invoked Ramayana to warn Indian women. He said after Sita crossed her limits, she was abducted by Ravana. Similarly, those women who breach their moral limits deserve punishment, he said.

    "Ek hi shabd hai - Maryada. Maryada ka ulanghan hota hai, toh Sita-haran ho jata hai. Laxman-rekha har vyakti ki khichi gayi hai. Us Laxman-rekha ko koi bhi par karega, toh Rawan samne baitha hai, woh Sita-haran karke le jayega. (One has to abide by certain moral limits. If you cross this limit you will be punished, just like Sita was abducted by Ravana)," Kailash Vijayvargiya said.

    Now, what does the comments of BJP leader say? It seems that our political class is highly insensitive towards issues of women and has failed to stop crime against women.
