BJP TIES ITSELF UP IN KNOTS OVER REMARKS
Meaning, women should know their limits to avert these assaults.
The BJP rushed to Bhagwat’s defence.“The present controversy relating to certain comments of RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat is totally uncalled for and unnecessary. His comments are required to be seen and understood in their entirety. He was referring to India’s ‘sanskar’, tradition and value system where respect for women occupies a pride of place,” BJP chief spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said.
Bhagwat had said in Silchar: “Such crimes won’t happen in Bharat or the rural areas of the country. Where ‘Bharat’ becomes ‘India’ with the influence of western culture, these type of incidents happen.
Prasad, however, distanced himself from Vijayvargiya’s statement. However, reactions to Bhagwat’s statements were otherwise severe.
