Rape not a mistake but a heinous crime: Capt Amarinder tells Mulayam Yadav
Former Punjab Chief Minister and Congress candidate from Amritsar Capt Amarinder Singh today condemned the rape remarks by Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, asserting, "rape is not a mistake, but a heineous crime that deserves severest punishment".
Expressing shock over Yadav's statement that young boys commit such mistakes like rape, they must not be hanged for that, Capt Amarinder said in his Facebook post today, "I am shocked to read the statement of the Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav defending the rapists".
"Let me clarify to Mr Yadav", he said in a strongly worded post, "rape is not a mistake it is a heineous crime against the dignity of our daughters. It deserves the severest of punishment".
Strongly criticising Yadav, Capt Amarinder said, "I am sorry to say that such statement only shows the medieval mindset of some people who though physically living in the twenty-first century are the prisoners of a mindset that belongs to medieval ages".
The senior Congress leader added, "by saying that young boys commit mistakes like rape and they must not be hanged for that Yadav has not only hurt and humiliated the dignity of our women who can be our daughters, sisters and mothers, but it has ashamed us all". His statement deserves to be condemned by one and all and he must withdraw it and tender an apology, he said.
