Kerala MLA claims that Nun, who was raped by a bishop, enjoyed it as she didn’t report it earlier
There are enough perverts in our society for who doesn’t know how to respect women. And the saddest part is some of them are sitting at the helm taking the nation towards its destruction. Two months ago in July, the Bishop of Jalandhar, Franco Mulakkal, was accused of rape of a nun in the Kuravilangad Convent. Many other nuns came in support of the victim and held protests against the Bishop.
As the fight for the Bishop to be punished continues, an independent Kerala MLA, PC George, issued a comment about her that can only be termed shameful and disturbing. He termed the nun as a prostitute and said that she enjoyed the rape because she did not complain 12 times.
As per a Times Of India report, he was quoted saying:
“No one has doubt that the nun is a prostitute. 12 times she enjoyed it and the 13th time it is rape? Why didn’t she complain the first time?”
In a report by Times Now, one of the protesting nuns, Sister Anupama was quoted as saying:
“Her sister was with her and she told us that the nun cried as soon as she heard PC George, and ran into her room. She locked herself up for hours and she was in her room even when we reached back. “
The MLA has been bashed all over social media for his shameful remarks on the victim. National Commission for Women (NCW) chief, Rekha Sharma also slammed him and said:
“I am ashamed of such lawmakers who are giving these statements instead of helping women. Nuns showed courage in making such allegations against someone who is head of the organisation (Bishop). In such a situation, for somebody who is a public figure to make this comment is horrible.”

This is an example of victim shaming in the nation and it’s high time it needs to stop. Due to this kind of people women are afraid to share their terrifying experiences with people and the accused gets a safe passage.
