INDIA'S chief investigator Ranjit Sinha. told a press gallary
"I feel that if we can have lotteries ... if we can have casinos in some tourist resorts and if the government can declare schemes of voluntary disclosure of black money, what is the harm if we legalise betting? Above all, do we have the enforcement agencies?"
Mr Sinha then said: "It is very easy to say you don't have enforcement agencies. It is like saying if you cannot stop rape, you enjoy it."

I think you are either confused  or playing mischief - the statement of the official does not mean he thinks rape should be accepted, he says that making laws regarding gambling without proper enforcement, is analogous to saying that if rape cannot be prevented, you enjoy it. This is a slightly different use and a twist of a famous/ well known saying "When rape is inevitable, lie back and enjoy it"..
I think your English is normally good, so it seems you are playing mischief with words to cast something on an Indian official. It does not reflect badly on that official, but on you, unless you plead that you are one of those that the Australian education system failed, in the primary language of the country - English! Even less educated Indians and people from other countries can read the logic of the statement better.{:soso_e120:}

you have lifted the words, but did you try to understand the meaning? it is quite simple really for most English speakers, even people like me for whom English is the second language... it is not the statement, but your title for the post, that does not mesh with the statement. If you cannot see that, you need English lessons.

Good example of a case where, in a rush to post something 'apparently' very negative about a country one would like to bash, without pausing to actually understand the couple of sentences, one slips on a figurative banana peel and falls flat on one's face. Need a hand to help you up, mate?

there are plenty of people pretending to be 'strategically stup.id' in an effort to paint India as barbaric, in the media. That includes plenty of people in India too! Foolish cunningness is found everywhere in the world, in all populations..
