Teenage girls in a Kendriya Vidyalaya are, reportedly, being told that girls invite Nirbhaya type rapes if they go out late at night or wear short clothes.
In a class attended by both girls and boys, a biology teacher in Raipur’s Kendriya Vidyalaya told students that wearing revealing clothes incites crimes like that of the Nirbhaya gangrape adding that outgoing women like Nirbhaya are “calling for it”.
According to a report in Times of India, a complaint against the teacher has been filed by the infuriated parents who met the school principal on Monday. The girls, reportedly, taped the teacher’s session in a bid to prove their claim.
The TOI report further added that the teacher allegedly told the students, “Girls expose their body only when they don’t have beautiful faces. Girls have become so shameless, why did Nirbhaya go out so late at night with a boy who wasn’t her husband? It’s difficult to understand why an issue was made of this. Such incidents happen with girls in remote areas frequently. Nirbhaya’s mother shouldn’t have allowed her go out so late at night.”
Nirbhaya’s gang-rape had shaken the entire shaken as people from walks of life took to streets to protest against the brutal incident. However, it seems that the Biology teacher in question believes that it was Nirbhaya’s fault.
The teacher is heard saying in the audio clip that when women wear short clothes, boys think that the girl is available and she wants ‘it’ as she is characterless.
