Kirron Kher's advice to gang rape victim stirs controversy”

The recent Chandigarh gang rape reportedly occurred in Chandigarh sector 37 when the victim boarded an auto with three men on board to return to her PG accommodation in Mohali after attending her first stenography class.

BJP MP from Chandigarh Kirron Kher found herself on the receiving end for advising girls not to hire autos with men already sitting inside it as a precautionary measure to avoid sexual assault.

"Bachi ki samajhdaari ko bhi main thoda sa kehna chahti hun... saari bachiyon ko.ki already jab koi teen aadmi baithe hue hain uske andar... to aapko usme bethna nahi chadhna chaeye tha.... I am saying this to protect the girls". The few bus services thin out further in the night hours. The girl was dumped in a secluded spot after they took turns raping her, according to Hindustan Times.

Mrs Kirron Kher also shared her experience of travelling in public transport. "Hum log bhi kabhi taxi lete the Mumbai mein... to kisi na kisi ko bhi.jo hamare sath hota tha... usse taxi ka number likha dete the( We also communte by taxis in Mumbai and always share details of the cab with our close family or friend). because we want our safety as girls".

She also went on to say that while boys need to be educated to prevent such crimes, girls should be alert and aware too.

Addressing the press conference, she said, "Insaan vahishi banta ja raha hai... people should educate their boys". "I am there... women can come to me.", she said.

The MP said that those who are trying to play politics over her statement should be ashamed of themselves and urged asked everyone to talk constructively. Another user Reema Roy said, "Tthese are our ministers, Instead of making the cities safe, they lecture women!"

Kher said on Wednesday that the victim should have been more cautious and not boarded the auto-rickshaw in which three men were already sitting.
