Misogynistic remark: Case booked against Mullappally Ramachandran
Thiruvananthapuram: The police have charged a case against KPCC president Mullappally Ramachandran for his misogynistic remark during a speech.
Thiruvananthapuram Women police registered the case on the basis of a complaint filed by the accused in Solar case whom Mullappally mentioned in the speech. Case for disrespecting womanhood was booked against him.
Mullappally made the controversial remark while speaking in front of the secretariat as part of an event organised by the UDF. He stated that the government which is totally submerged in allegations of corruption has come with a prostitute to cook up stories and divert the attention.
'If a rape victim has any self-esteem she will either commit suicide or ensure that she will not land in a similar situation anymore”. But some police officers told me that a woman who laments that the entire state has raped her is going to be brought to the limelight,' Mullappally said.
As the statement stoked a controversy, Mullappally had apologised on the same venue. However, protests continued against his misogynistic remark and the Women's Commission also charged a case against him.
