India now known as 'rape capital,' says Rahul Gandhi
WAYANAD: Citing the increasing number of rape cases, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said the international community was ridiculing the country and India was now known as the 'rape capital' of the world.
Winding up a three-day tour of his Wayanad Lok Sabha constituency, the Congress MP also lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said his (Modi's) entire political career was based on hatred and division and violence.
"The girls, sisters and mothers must be shocked when they read newspapers that every day a girl is raped or killed...The international community today ridicules India. India is known as the rape capital of the world," Gandhi said.
"UP BJP MLA is involved in rape and PM hasn't said a word.
Foreign nations are asking this question why the nation can't take care of its daughters," Gandhi said.
Directly attacking the Prime Minister, Gandhi said Modi represents the worst aspects of the country.
Our people live in fear and discomfort," Gandhi said and urged the people of the country not to "underestimate" their (peoples) strength to change the narrative of the nation.
"You have seen the increase in violence across the country. Lawlessness, atrocities against women. Every day we read about a girl getting raped and molested.
Violence against minority communities and dalits is also increasing," Gandhi said at the opposition Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) convention here.
Gandhi's remarks comes a day after Unnao rape victim, who was set ablaze, died at a hospital in Delhi and the recent incident of a young veterinarian being raped, killed and set ablaze in Hyderabad by four people.
