4The Delhi gangrape has brought two most unlikely men ever to come on the same page and talk the same language. Samajwadi Party leader Abu Asim Azmi has supported RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s statement that "rapes happen only in India and not in Bharat".



Azmi in fact has gone ahead and said that it should be a crime to wear short skirts or any other revealing outfits in the country.

According to Azmi it was the outfits worn by the women that were the cause of the rapes.



"If you keep petrol and fire together then it will burn. There should be a law to ensure that there should be no ’nangapan’ (nudity). Those who wear less clothes should also be banned," said Azmi.


He justified his demand by saying that one can see that incidents of rape would be less in areas where women wear a purdah and where they wear a skirt and see that the woman wearing the purdah will be less vulnerable to rape. 

"I support death penalty for the Delhi rapists but there should also be a law that women should not wear less clothes and roam around with boys who are not their relatives. What is the need for roaming at night with men who are not relatives? This should be stopped," said Azmi.

Azmi also said that censor board should have women from rural India appointed as chairperson or as members. He felt that people like Shabana Azmi and Sharmila Tagore were not representative enough.

"The kind of movies that are being shown right now on are such that fathers and daughters and brothers and sisters cannot sit together and watch those movies. So we are going to demand that instead of modern women, good women from villages should be appointed in them," said Azmi.
Azmi’s comments were welcomed by his party. However, his own son Farhan Azmi who is a restaurateur and also is in the Samajwadi Party immediately condemned his father’s comment. "I retract the comment on my father’s behalf, it is highly condemnable and I apologise to all the people in the country. The remarks have deeply disturbed me and my wife Ayesha and my mother and even my father is embarrassed," said Azmi.

Farhan said that he had a talk with his father over the issue after his comments and the latter admitted that he did overstep.
"We are a cosmopolitan family, I have five sisters, they are educated, they drive and roam around in cars, we have always respected girls as equals and is that how it should be," said Farhan.

He said that he did agree with one thing that his father said, that the films made in the country should depict our culture and morals and that the current songs and videos have been displaying a lot of vulgarity.
