Kerala: National Commission for Women Chairperson (NCW) Rekha Sharma on Sunday spoke against the Kerala Independent MLA PC George calling a rape victim nun a prostitute.
She said, “I am ashamed of such lawmakers who are giving these statements instead of helping women. NCW has already taken up the matter and we will write to DGP demanding strict action against him.” She further said, “I met her in person. She was protesting against the Bishop and demanding justice for herself. I’ve seen her being denounced by the church. She was denied basic facilities like ration and stipend.”
A Bishop of Jalandhar Franco Mulakkal has been accused of allegedly raping a Kerala nun.
Ever since this incident has come to light, more nuns have come forward with allegations of ‘inappropriate’ touch against him.
