Women's dignified dress up prevents molestation cases: MP Industries Minister
To avoid the rising cases of molestations, girls and women should dress up in dignified manner, said Madhya Pradesh Industries' Minister Kailash Vijayvargiya on Saturday while speaking on the rising cases of molestation and rape against women and girls in Indian society.
"Women should dress in such a way that they earn respect from others. This is the meaning of dressing up in our society. It should not provoke others. However, unfortunately women are dressing provocatively and are inciting others,"
His comments has come up in the backdrop of recent molestation case held in Guwahati with a minor girl in which a group of mob has attacked on her when she was coming out from a public bar in the late night. The mob tried to torn her dress and assault her that attracted whole nation's criticism.
Vijayvargiya also slammed the members of the National Commission for Women (NCW) who had gone to Guwahati to probe the incident.
"As per the visual I saw on television, it seems that they had gone to take part in a fashion parade. People, who are manning watchdog institutions, should conduct themselves in a dignified manner," he added.
However, he has also faced criticism for his comment as slamming to BJP Minister Congress lawmaker Prabha Thakur, said such crimes should not be related to the way women dress.
"Such heinous and dreadful crime takes place against underage girls. How come their dress provokes culprits? So it is not a matter of dress code but animal instincts which provokes the culprits," Thakur told a reporter in New Delhi.
She even called for castration of culprits' organ to curb crime against women.
"I think culprit's organ should be castrated and his accomplices must be severely punished. The day such measures are implemented, crime graph will come down drastically. They will not be provoked and their animal instincts would be under control," she added.
