Member of Parliament Kirron Kher has stirred a controversy with her comments on Chandigarh gangrape case. In a nation where majority of the population commutes by public transport including shared autorickshaws, our dear minister suggests that girls should avoid travelling in them for safety measures.At a press conference in Chandigarh, the actress turned politician was asked about the gangrape of a 22 year old girl in a moving autorickshaw by three men. Kirron Kher said, “Bachi ki samajhdaari ko bhi main thoda sa kehna chahti hun… saari bachiyon ko.. ki already jab koi teen aadmi baithe hue hain uske andar… to aapko usme bethna nahi chaeye tha ( The young girl should have been a bit careful. I would like to suggest all girls to sit in an autorikshaw when there already three men sitting inside) ….I am saying this to protect the girls.” The incident was reported a few days back when the woman had taken an auto to go back to her paying guest accommodation in Mohali. She was returning back after attending a stenography class in Sector 37. The girl was raped in the moving auto by three men who later dumped her in Sector 53. She was spotted by the passersby, who informed the police.Also read21-year-old girl gang-raped in ChandigarhA report in The Indian Express also quotes Kirron Kher sharing her own experience of travelling in a public transport.. “Hum log bhi kabhi taxi lete the Mumbai mein… to kisi na kisi ko bhi..jo hamare sath hota tha… usse taxi ka number likha dete the( We also communte by taxis in Mumbai and always share details of the cab with our close family or friend).. because we want our safety as girls.. I remember as a girl… so mujhe lagta hai hum sab ko aaj kal ke zamane mein in cheezon ke liye sakhat hona padega (I feel that in these times, we also have to be more careful about these things),” she said.Expressing pain over the incident, she said, “I feel really sad for the victim.” The MP also pitched for the need for the families to educate their boys. Questioned about the absence of the Women’s Commission in Chandigarh, she said what was the need for a Mahila Aayog when the city has a woman MP , a woman mayor and a woman SSP.
