Put Equal Restrictions On Sons Also To Curb Rape Incidents: Prime Minister To Parents

Expressing deep concern on rape cases being reported from different parts of the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked parents to take responsibility for their son’s actions and put the same restrictions on them as they put on their daughters. He said the erosion of social values is a matter of concern and such incidents make “our heads hang in shame”.

Addressing the nation from Red Fort in Delhi, he categorically pointed out this issue. “Today, when we hear about incidents of rape, our heads hang in shame. People give different arguments. Some blame it on psychological problem. Every parent who has a 10 year old girl at home, ask them where are they going, when will they come back and tell them to call back home after reaching their place.” he added.

“But have you ever asked as to where is your son going, why are they going and who are your friends. After all the person committing the crime are the sons of someone,” Every mother and father should keep a tab on their sons and hold them accountable much like the way they put restrictions on girls, Mr Modi said.

Prime Minister said every parent should decide to put the same restrictions on their sons as they put on their daughters.
