Rape without violence should be legalised and women should co-operate if being raped, says filmmaker Daniel Shravan.
The filmmaker also said that women should carry condoms in preparation for being raped as he tried to explain why ‘non-violent’ sex attacks should be legalised.
He was speaking after vet, Priyanka Reddy, 27, was raped by a man who offered to help her with a puncture last week.
Her charred body was found under an overpass near Hyderabad in India last week.
In his extraordinary outburst, he said “rape is not a serious thing, but murder is inexcusable.”
He also said:
“The government should legalise rape without violence for the safety of women.”
His argument was that once the “sexual desire is fulfilled, men wouldn’t kill women,” adding that women were being killed because they fought back or used pepper spray.
“Rapists are not finding a way to get their bodily sexual desires and getting these killing thoughts. An evil thought provokes crime (Killing). Better, women should accept Men’s Sex.”
Shravan also said that the Indian government was frightening rapists.
He later deleted the post after people said they would boycott his films.
