Member of India’s Parliament Threatens To Send His “Boys” to Rape Women

July 01, 2014

Tapas Pal, a politician and Member of Parliament was videotaped openly threatening to send his “boys” to rape women and kill people from the opposition.  Pal is a key politician in the Trinamool Congress (TMC), a party that heads the current government in the state of West Bengal.  Rape and other forms of violence against women have risen dramatically under the TMC led government in West Bengal, making the state one of the worst states in crimes against women in India.  Many of the cases of rapes of women involved TMC politicians and workers who seem to have immunity from the law.  The party leader and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has been accused of being insensitive to crimes against women, often blaming the victims, despite being a woman herself, and refusing to reign in her politicians.

There has been no move on the part of Ms. Banerjee to take legal action against Pal.  There is now a call for the arrest of Pal, under the Sec 503 of the Indian Penal Code for inciting hate and violence against women.
