Rape Is A Matter Of Shame For India, PM Modi Says In London Amid Outrage

LONDON (Reuters) – Rape is rape and should not be politicised, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Wednesday, adding that recent sexual assaults were a matter of shame for the nation.

Modi was greeted on a visit to London by hundreds of noisy protesters, demonstrating against a rising tide of sexual violence at home including two particularly brutal rapes.

“Rape is rape … How can we accept this?” Modi said through a translator at a diaspora event, adding that people needed to ask more questions of the perpetrators.

“This is a matter of great concern for the country and these sinners are somebody’s sons… The rape of a (daughter) is a matter of worry, a shame for the country.”
