Imran Khan, Pakistan PM Criticised For 'If You Raise Temptation...' Remark On Rape

WORLD Team Latestly|

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan once again invited trouble by suggesting that avoiding "temptation in society" is the way to prevent sexual violence against women. This comes barely two months after his comments on sexual violence drew severe backlash. In April, during a question and answer session with the public, Imran Khan had said that the rise in sexual violence in Pakistan, particularly against children, was caused due to "fahashi" (vulgarity). Answering a question if the woman's clothes can provoke sexual violence, Khan said, "If a woman is wearing very few clothes it will have an impact on the men unless they are robots. It's common sense.” When further prodded, he added, "It depends which society you live in. If in a society people have not seen that sort of thing, it will have an impact on them.” Calling Imran Khan a "sick, misogynistic, degenerate", Pakistan Muslim League (PML) spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb came down heavily on the Pakistan Prime Minister. Official statistics in Pakistan have revealed that at least 11 rape incidents are reported in the country every day, with over 22,000 cases reported to the police in the last six years. However, only 77 of the accused have been convicted which comprises 0.3 per cent of the total figure, reported Geo News.
