Ranjit Sinha, director of India's Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI)
TweetEmailIndia's top police chief is facing calls for his resignation after a comment about rape sparked anger among victims' groups.

Ranjit Sinha, director of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), India's equivalent of the United States' FBI,sparked outrage across the country, which in the past year has seen widespread protests following the fatal gang rape of a 23-year-old woman on a bus in New Delhi.

Mr Sinha made the comment during a CBI conference about illegal sports betting and the need to legalise gambling.

"Do we have the enforcement?" Mr Sinha said at the event in New Delhi on Tuesday about whether sports betting should be legalised.

"It is very easy to say that if you can't enforce it, it's like saying if you can't prevent rape, you enjoy it."


There have been widespread protests demanding tougher penalties for rape

He has apologised and insisted his comments were taken out of context and were misinterpreted, but angry activists called for his resignation.

"I regret any hurt caused," Mr Sinha said. "I gave my opinion that betting should be legalised and that if the laws cannot be enforced, that does not mean that laws should not be made.

"This is as erroneous as saying that if rape is inevitable one should lie back and enjoy it. I reiterate my deep sense of regard and respect for women and my commitment for gender issues."

But civil rights campaigners and opposition politicians said his remarks risked trivialising the issue of rape and raised questions over the CBI's ability to investigate serious sexual assaults.

Kavita Krishnan, an activist with the All India Progressive Women's Association, called for Mr Sinha to step down.

"How can he remain the head of India's premier investigation agency?" she said.

Nirmala Sitharaman, spokeswoman for the main opposition group, the Bharatiya Janata Party, described the remarks as "shocking".

What is more shocking?  What he said or seneca's statements that rape in india are because there are more 'men that are losers' and that rape is just a 'practical alternative' to being unmarried.

Practical....geez.....

did you read the statement and understand it properly? Have you heard of a famous English saying "If rape is inevitable, lie back and enjoy it"?  If you understand the following quote of the Indian official, you will see that what you think is quite wrong.


"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."

He said not having the agencies to enforce the laws is like saying that, law violations have to be accepted. It is like saying that famous saying that "if rape is inevitable, lie back and enjoy it."
In English, like in other languages, it is called an analogy. I think most sensible, literate people understand it. Those that are illiterate or are just starting to learn English, they can be forgiven if they have a doubt about the statement. The rest are mischievous id.i.ots who think that any talk of India and rape can be used to smear India.
Were you confused by the language? Did you look into the quote properly before jumping to this conclusion?
What you see some politicians say and other people in the media say, only proves that there are mischievous i.di.ots in India too.

EVEN if an official actually makes a statement that rape should be accepted as a comment on that issue, it only proves that HE personally is a mischievous i.di.ot. not that the country or culture is like that. Then that person will probably reiterate it publicly to get attention and bring shame upon the country. There are all kinds of people in all countries.

people inadvertently reveal more about themselves sometimes, than the country they are trying to slam or smear
