He called on parents to take responsibility for their sons’ actions, saying parents must teach their sons the difference between right and wrong.
"When we hear about these rapes our heads hang in shame," Mr Modi said.
"Young girls are always asked so many questions by their parents, like ‘where are you going?’. But do parents dare to ask their sons where they are going?" he asked.
“Those who commit rape are also someone’s sons. It’s the responsibility of the parents to stop them before they take the wrong path,” he added.
Okay, say what you want about him, but this is a big deal. This is Prime Minister Modi’s first Independence Day address since being elected. And instead of using this time to talk about Pakistan, like every other Independence Day speech in the past, he stood up there and talked about INDIA’s need for improvement. And amongst his topics, he talked about rape.
And he didn’t describe it as “accidental” or “boys making mistakes”, and he didn’t state that women need to “dress more dignified”, all of which have been said by other Indian politicians. For once, we’re hearing someone put the blame on the rapist, and actually calling out parents to raise their sons properly. Like everyone else, I’m still hoping Modi isn’t another PM who is all talk.
PLEASE DON’T REBLOG THIS PIECE OF SHIT’S COMMENTS ON RAPE.
As Chief Minister of Gujarat, Modi grounded his power on the corpses of over 2000 Muslims who were killed in the genocide of February-March 2002. Before that, he had a tenuous hold on the state. Post-genocide, he skilfully used spurious, disproved and at worst contested evidence of a train fire in which 58 Hindus were killed — the ‘trigger’ for a genocide that had been a long time in the making – to win a landslide electoral victory.
Despite strenuous efforts for justice for the victims of the Gujarat genocide, Modi was able to ensure that nothing stuck to him. Diligent police officers were harassed and transferred out; there was witness intimidation; there were false ‘encounter’ killings of Muslim youth, framed as ‘terrorists’, to build the case that Modi was their intended target.
Members of his government like Maya Kodnani were less fortunate. She got convicted. Many of those involved directly in the genocide have boasted on and off camera of their horrific deeds — torture, dismemberment, burning and hacking to death. Especially targeted were Muslim women, who were sexually tortured, gang-raped in front of their families and then slashed to death. Pregnant women were not spared, their wombs were split open and their fetuses torn out . Victims who called the police to come to their assistance as the killing mobs rampaged through the streets were told “We have no orders to save you.” Instructions had come down from the highest level.

He does not give a shit about rape or women. It’s a political tactic to garner support. There is no sincerity in his words, he is a murderer, sexist, pro-Israeli, racist, islamophobic and misogynistic piece of shit.
Modi was accused of complicity in the violence and though he was absolved of all accusations by India’s Supreme Court, the US and European countries rejected visas for Modi in sanctions meant to punish the leader for not doing enough to end the violence.
Israel gained Modi as a business partner and political supporter when he saw that attempting to find financial investment from the US and Europe wasn’t politically viable.
Yet, it isn’t only for financial gain that Israel finds itself naturally partnered with Modi’s BJP. Anti-Pakistan and anti-Islamic rhetoric from BJP officials over the years has drawn India closer to Israel politically and ideologically as they also search for ways to cooperate in fighting terrorism (x)
