Rape Cases Can Be Stopped Only With Sanskar Not Governance”: UP BJP MLA

Amid outrage over the alleged gang rape of a 20-year-old woman from Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras, who died in Delhi, a BJP MLA from UP’s Ballia has said: “It’s the duty of all mothers and fathers to imbibe good values in their daughters and bring them up in cultured environments.”

“I am a teacher besides being an MLA. Such incidents (like rape) can be stopped only with sanskar (culture), not with shasan (good governance) or talwar (referring to sword or might),” the BJP’s Surendra Singh said on Saturday.

“It’s my dharma, government’s dhrama but family’s dharma too… While government is committed to protect, the family should be committed too to imbibe good values in their children. Sanskar and sarkaar can make India beautiful, there is no other alternative,” he is heard saying in a video. He was replying to a question by a reporter, who asked him: “Why do you think rape cases are continue even as is people say this is Ram Rajya?” 

The BJP MLA has been known for making controversial statements in the past as well. Last year, he had said that Nathuram Godse, who killed Mahatama Gandhi “was not a terrorist” and he “committed a mistake”. Earlier this year, he commented on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, saying she is a “cruel-hearted woman”.
