Politician Asha Mirje stunned the world last week by blaming India's rash of sexual violence on women's behavior and dress. So why hasn't Mirje been removed from the National Commission for Women?

Noted and signed. I'm tired of people not taking responsibility for their actions! It's NEVER a person's fault when some galoot or, worse still, an out of control crowd of them, damages a human being in ANY way. There's simply no excuse for this person's comments.

Always the same: getting raped is a crime.
Raping is ok.
When will it end?

What a person wears is absolutely nothing to do with being raped, even if she walks down the street stark naked it's still not an invitation for rape. This poor specimen of a female should be ashamed of herself and be sacked. Signed, thanks Susan.

S+N When I was in my twenties I was molested and the policeman asked me if I was wearing a tight shirt at the time. I asked him what did that have t do with anything, he said " Men will be Men and if you tempt them, whose fault is it". I complained to the Mayor of the town at the time, by your now the boys club, othing happened to policeman or molester.

These spastic aliens to the light would rape if women were dressed as teletubbies.
