Yet another shocker (but not surprising, given the fact that it is coming from a politician): Samajwadi Party (SP) leader and state Cabinet minister Azam Khan said,
Mobile phones are responsible for rapes as they have become the easiest and cheapest source of serving obscenity to younger generation who now are preying on two-and-a-half-year-old girls.
I can say with conviction that mobile phone is the sole culprit because it is making porn accessible for people of all ages. Even village people can easily download porn films, which is a matter of serious concern.
He also insisted that is is about time the government and society took note of this and steps were taken to stop further vitiating of teenagers’ minds.
Interestingly, this is what former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah had to say about Azam Khan’s comment:
Of course because rape & depravity didn’t exist before the arrival of smart phones!!!! https://t.co/JeKhqJFJm9

Blame everything and everyone, even the victims, but not the culprits. *slow clap*
