Haryana : Aam Aadmi Party, Haryana condemns the highly irresponsible & regressive statement made on women by the Hindu Mahasabha – Haryana linking jeans & mobile phones with growing incidents of rape. The president of its Haryana unit said at a function in Hisar that jeans & top should be banned as it causes women getting raped. He told that in order to reduce the number of rape cases, women should be prohibited from keeping mobile phones. He also said that girls themselves are responsible for crimes like rape by wearing provocative dresses and having mobiles.
It is a matter of concern that someone could pass such statement in an independent & progressive society. The Aam Aadmi Party, being a people’s voice for a just & developing society, strongly objects to such disturbing developments in Haryana.
The new CM of Haryana, Sh Manohar Lal Khattar, in past, has expressed his thoughts on women & rape incidents on similar lines. While the CM was being sworn in, social media was abuzz with his past statements. It seems that such a public stand from Hindu Mahasabha stems from the belief that the CM himself is of the similar view. Until the Chief Minister publicly disowns & disagrees with what’s been said in Hisar.
The people of Haryana have given a mandate to the BJP with a hope that the new government rids the state of the ailments infested during Hooda’s tenure.
The Aam Aadmi Party, Haryana demands that Chief Minister himself should condemn statement issued by president of HMS Haryana unit. And he should make it clear that he will not attend any function of this organization till they will not withdraw above said statement .
