Never is the victim responsible for its rape: Imran Khan


Earlier, PM Imran Khan was criticized on social media for his remarks on rape which he clarified in his recent interview with PBS NewsHour.

He stated that he would “never say such a stupid thing” that a rape victim is “somehow responsible” for the crime committed against them.

Upon asking about his comments on the person who is raped is somehow responsible for the crime or not, PM said:

“Anyone who commits rape, solely and solely that person is responsible. So let’s be clear about that. No matter how provocative the woman is or whatever she wears, the person who commits rape is fully responsible. Never is the victim responsible.”

While explaining how sex crimes are not limited to women, he stated:

“More than rape, there are child abuse cases which are going through the roof, so my comments were in that context.”
