Breaking his silence, Modi said: "Incidents being discussed for the past couple of days can not be part of a civilised society".
Massive protest rallies demanding justice for the minor victims and punishment for the accused in the Kathua and Unnao rape cases were held over the last few days. This is also an insult to all those who've sacrificed their lives for the country.
Social justice is not a lip service for the government but a commitment, "but the kind of incidents we have seen in the past challenge the very concept of social justice", said Modi.
"Such incidents in any part of the country or a state shake humanity".
He further assured the countrymen that no culprit will be spared and complete justice will be done in both the cases. "I expected things to get better in India after all the protests for Nirbhaya [the name given to the 2012 Delhi rape victim], but our society has worsened instead", said Hasan. "We all will have to join hands and remove this evil from the society".
The body of the girl, from the Bakherwal community, was recovered from Rassana forest on January 17, a week after she went missing while grazing horses in the forest area. She was kept in captivity for a week in a temple where she was drugged and raped by as many as six men. ' BJP MLA Surendra Singh was speaking in defence of another saffron party MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, who's accused of raping a teenager in Unnao. The case came to light when the victim and her family tried to set themselves ablaze outside CM Yogi Adityanath's Lucknow residence.
Sources told Times Now that Chaudhary Lal, one of the ministers who resigned yesterday, had reportedly told Madhav that he had attended the controversial rally on the orders of state BJP President Sat Sharma.
The crisis in the PDP-BJP coalition government over participation by two BJP ministers in a rally over the Kathua case subsided after the resignations of the two minister was accepted on Saturday. Madhav said, "such crimes (Kathua) are inhuman and any attempt to communalise them needs to be condemned unequivocally". Instead, she put up an atrocious defence for Chandra Parkash Ganga and Lal Singh.
