NCW issues notice to Karnataka HM and SP Leader for disgusting comments over Bengaluru Molestation : On Monday, over the statements on the mass molestation of women in Bengaluru on the occasion of the New Year eve, the National Commission for Women (NCW) issued summons to Karnataka Home Minister G Parameshwara and SP leader Abu Azmi.
The Chief of NCW – Lalitha Kumaramangalam said that we have sent summons to both of them (Karnataka HM & Abu Azmi) for their statements. A few men across parties have made disgusting statements. If men at this level say such things, where is the nation heading?.
G Parameshwara had remarked that the western ways of the youngsters were the reason behind the incident of mass molestation in Bengaluru. On Monday, NCW chief Lalitha had demanded his resignation and apology to the women of the country.
G Parameshwara said that what is happening on days like New Year’s, Brigade Road, Commercial Street, or MG road, a large number of youngsters gather. And youngsters were almost like westerners. They tried to copy the westerners, not only in their mindset but even in their dressing. So some disturbance, some girls are harassed.
NCW Chief Lalitha asked that such remarks from the Home Minister is unacceptable and regrettable. I want to ask this Minister are Indian men so pathetic and weak that when they see a woman in Western clothes on a day of revelry, they get out of control.
SP Leader Abu Azmi told media that in these modern times, the more women are naked, the more fashionable, modern and educated they are considered. And this is increasing in the country. This is a blot on our culture.
The police said that there are no official complaints of molestation till now. NCW chief said that pictorial information is enough for them to take action.
Lalitha said that they can take action regardless of whether an FIR was lodged. If there were 1,500 policemen and still they could not prevent such incidents, well then it’s a very sorry state of affairs and police do not deserve to be the police if they can’t protect women.
