A day after small-time Telugu filmmaker Daniel Shravan's outrageous comments over the country's growing rape culture sparked a massive controversy, his mother has expressed shock and said that she is ashamed of her son's sick comments.
Shamefully resorting to victim-blaming, Shravan had said that women should carry condoms with themselves and co-operate with the rapist(s).
Here are more details.
'Rape is not serious thing but murder is inexcusable'. Wow!
In wake of the gruesome gang-rape and murder of a 27-year-old lady veterinary, whose charred body was found on the outskirts of Hyderabad last week, the filmmaker had opined blurted that the victims should co-operate with their assailants, to avoid getting murdered, which is "more heinous" than rape.
"Rape is not serious thing but murder is inexcusable," he had written in a Facebook post.
Following backlash, Shravan has deleted his posts and profile
But unfortunately, that wasn't the only cringe-worthy statement that came out of Shravan's dirty mind.
He started his post with something as bizarre as, "Instead of dialling '100' (police emergency contact-number), carry condoms with U... (sic)."
He went on to say that "rapes without violence" should be legalized.
His posts and profile have now been deleted.
Infuriating little prick: Shravan's comments garnered a lot of flak
In response to the comments, prominent playback singer Chinmayi Sripaada attacked Shravan, thereby asking if he would advise the same to women in his own family.
Further, actor Kubbra Sait said, "(Shravan) needs medical help, maybe some heavy duty whacks up his butt, (it) will help him clear his constipated mind. Infuriating little prick."
Here's what Sripaada tweeted
Ideas going around. Some of this content is in Telugu. Basically the ideas these men have given is - cooperate and offer condoms to prevent murder after rape, women’s organizations are the reason for rape. Rape is not heinous, murder is. pic.twitter.com/2eqhrQA02T
