Jyoti Singh Pandey Rape: Victim is Guilty Too, Says Guru

Asaram Bapu, a deranged "self-styled Hindu guru," claims Jyoti Singh Pandey, the 23-year-old fatal Delhi gang rape victim, was partly responsible for her own attack and death — reports The Mirror    

"[She's] as guilty as her rapists," is the outrageous quote from this obvious psychopath.

The 71-year-old "spiritual leader" claims that Jyoti should have been "more friendly" to her attackers if she wanted to preserve her own life. 

"Only five to six people are not the culprits. The victim is as guilty as her rapists. She should have called the culprits brothers and begged before them to stop," added Bapu according to The Mirror. 

The mild response to Bapu's unbelievable statements is very telling of the cultural state of the world's largest democracy regarding gender issues. 

"Such comments should be condemned as much as possible," said Sandeep Dikshit of the ruling Congress party.  

"Religious figures should give serious thought before commenting on public affairs," said Dikshit's colleague Rashid Alvi.

Jyoti died in a Singapore hospital two weeks after the heinous December 16 attack.
