Blaming the victims….is a new low.

Former cricketer Imran Khan has openly stated that only by dressing modest would women lower the risk of being raped. What planet is this man on?

It is offensive and he is offensive.

Women do not ask to be raped and any excuse to play it down is disgusting.

Women are raped because men think that it is ok to violate women how they want too and to have a leader of a country say this is outrageous, and not only that he had to get a dig in where Bollywood was concerned or the rock and roll era of Great Britain…yet during his time here he went out to the sort of places that the likes of me and millions like me could never go….the drinking, no doubt the drugs and the dancing…oh what a jolly jape.

Does he want to tell the victims of the grooming gangs in Rochdale and Bradford that it was their fault? It is always a case with some men that they excuse the most disgusting of behaviour and blame the women. It is backwards thinking and not the right response in todays world.

Imran Khan being offensive and disrespectful to those who suffered rape and sexual abuse.

You have to ask yourself how little respect he must have for women to come up with this comment?

Don’t lets forget that Mr Khan is twice-divorced and was no stranger to scantily-clad women as he partied in VIP nightclubs during his bachelor life in London.  The English public schoolboy famously dated fashion guru Susannah Constantine before marrying glamorous socialite Ms Goldsmith in 1995.

Care to comment on the scantily clad women Mr Khan? Or shall we just assume you have no idea what you are talking about!

Women should be free to dress how they want too and if it is from head to foot or not then that should be their choice, and not just because they are at risk of getting attacked by men who cannot control themselves. Maybe the men should be put under the microscope if that is the case.

Women do not ask for rape when deciding what outfit to wear and he should apologise for such offensive remarks. For someone who is supposed to be intelligent he is not showing any trace of it.
