Top Indian Official Rebuked For ‘Rape’ Remark
CBI Director Ranjit Sinha is under fire for comparing illegal betting in in India to the vicious act of rape.
He said quote. “If you cannot enforce the ban on betting, it is like saying ‘if you can’t prevent rape, you enjoy it’”, this being an unseemly attempt to explain why un-enforceability cannot be used as an argument against the existence of a law.
Sinha later apologized for the comment, after many were infuriated by the display of insensitivity, even more appalling that this comment came from a senior member of a law enforcement agency and in a society afflicted by appalling levels of sexual violence.
