He should stand on his statement btw… although the responsibility of crime lies solely on rapist but somehow women’s dressing also involved …idk what’s being wrong wearing something according to Islam …veil,hijab,gown all these kind of stuff gives elegancy to women …women dressing really has a part in these days to day emerging in rapes. A rapist is full of lust and this craving increase due to vulgar dresses and when he doesn’t able to get his hand on women he tries to remove his lust from innocent pre-teens females and we called English slavery a “fashion” that is a bitter kind of truth

To some extent both statements have their own validations. But he said, the previous statement was an unintentional word spoken. He shouldn’t have taken U-turn like that.

I disagree. Rape is not a consequence of lust, but a sick urge to exercise control and establish dominance.
