On 15th August this year India woke up with historic speech from their PM Mr. Narendra Modi as he addressed the nation on the occasion of India’s Independence Day. As it was his first address to the nation as a PM the whole nation was eagerly waiting to see him set a new yardstick for himself. He indeed do that same as he opened the speech with –
Indian men listened to his speech in shock as he accused all of them as rapists or potential rapists. He just attacked Indian families and parents of letting their sons do whatever they want. Many men and parents were offended by that speech as if Indian parents teach their sons how to rape. But Indian men are used to this kind of misandric speech from their leaders else how will the leaders gain popularity so there was no unrest in India.
But that was not all, he has not given any credit to Indian men in building the nation when he said –
Even though most of the Indian farmers, labourers and scientists may be men but special mention of women and NO mention of men keep us wondering about what did Indian men really do? Who were most of the freedom fighters in India who laid down their lives for the country to get us freedom, who were those brave hearts who saved India from natural disasters or who are the ones who are dying every day in Kargil or fighting terrorist outfits?
They are mostly men and they are NOT the rapists. But our PM has termed men only as rapists and conveniently ignored their contribution in building the nation. He mentioned women in his speech as if women are the ones who are doing maximum sacrifice and hence they need to be specially mentioned and men’s contribution is not even worth mention. Men are only worth mentioned as rapists, our families are only to be blamed for making their sons rapists or killing their daughters.
He also said –
On the same day he took pledge of not making the surrounding dirty. That means not only environmental cleanliness but also political cleanliness as well. As he said –
As if he wants to think beyond his selfish interest and look for nation’s welfare.
After a few days came the real challenge for his government. His own Railway Minister Sadananda Gowda’s son was accused by a Kannada actress for cheating and rape.
Looks like Mr. Gowda didn’t teach his son ‘Not to Rape’ something that his PM himself preached on India’s Independence Day. It looks like Mr Gowda has never stopped his son from doing this wrong. It shows that the PM who talks about not making his surroundings dirty, think beyond selfish interests and think for the nation is still bearing with this father in his cabinet.
Our PM said that law will take its own course in rape cases but only in this case we see that feminists raising the point why should media and society be used as moral police? Why should sex in the promise of marriage be considered as rape at all? But for so many years when innocent law-abiding and peace-loving common Indian men were accused of rape, their PM has only termed them as rapists and blamed their parents for that.
Only when the accused is a minister’s son we don’t see anyone demanding his death penalty. We don’t even see our PM cleaning his own surrounding, his own cabinet from a father, who according to PM himself should be held guilty for his son’s behaviour.
It is proved one more time that we live in hypocrite society, we all probably are.
