Change in mindset starts within family: Kirron Kher on Haryana rape cases

Chandigarh: With the recent spike in reports of cases of sexual abuse, Bharatiya Janata Party lawmaker Kirron Kher has once again come forth view her views on the issue.

Attacking the root causes of such incidents, Kher said that change needs to come in mindset.

“Such incidents have been taking place since forever, only change in mindset can bring about change. Change in society starts from within a family,” said Kher.

Kher was been vocal about the views on such subjects.

In August 2017, BJP member Ramveer Bhatti's had said parents should take care of their girls.

“Children should come home on time, why stay out at night?" he said.

Responding to fellow partyman's statement, Kher had said, “Why is there danger at night and not during the day? They should tell boys not to go out at night.”

Haryana has witnessed a rise in reports of rape across the state in the last two weeks.

In last eight days, eight incidents of rapes were reported in Haryana.

Terming Haryana the 'Rape State of India', the Congress on Saturday said that it was shocking that the attitude of Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and his government was more on shifting blame instead of acting against the culprits.

Meanwhile, the state government has said it will enact a law to provide for capital punishment for those found guilty of raping girls aged 12 years or below.
