Kamal-Hassan-Women-Should-Not-Be-Blamed-for-Rape

In yesterday's Bigg Boss episode, Ulaganayagan Kamal Hassan met the contestants and strictly pointed out a few things!

First, he completely disagrees with Madhumitha's statement to Abhirami during one of their conversations this week. Madhumitha has mentioned that the way women dress can be the reason for rape. 

"I strongly condemn Madhumitha's statement that the way women dress can lead to rape incidents. Babies don't have any dress code and they still get raped. This is not the kind of message we want to spread in this show!" Kamal said.

He confronted Abhirami on why she didn't voice out her thoughts on the matter there and then to Madhumitha.

"Actually I felt the same," she told Kamal. "Rape doesn't occur because of a women's dress code, but the 'dirt' in the rapist's heart. It's the way they see and perceive the women around you that's different."

Kamal further explains that the society should stop blaming the victim. It's the kind of mentality that fuels more abuse and crimes against women. 

In recent years, India has been labelled as one of the world’s most dangerous places for women. It is estimated that a woman is raped in the country every 15 minutes!
