Wow Ms Lekhi, your statement on the director/producer of the documentary ‘India’s Daughter’ Leslee Udwin “Couldn’t she find a rapist in London that she had to travel all way to India?” is indeed something out of the world.
Never knew there was an Indian Rapist and a British Rapist. Do you think even the Rape Victims should be classified with a nationality? Or is your problem that a British national made a documentary that had an interview with a Rapist who is an Indian citizen? Is that how you define national pride and nationalism. the world would love to know how many people in India connect national thought in that same way.
The documentary proves that the director/producer does not consider that a rape victim should be classified on nationality. This documentary is not about the rapists alone but about the Victim, her family, the rapist, their mentality, the society we all live in and the systems that we have and even some problems with it. It is in a way above nationality issues. It is about the ways gender inequality can move in our society sometimes appearing to be very harmless and insignificant but slowly builds poisonous roots in the mind of a few who can then become responsible for such horrendous crimes. You have twisted this whole thing into a very stupid agenda of ‘west against east’ which is so shameful and appalling.
The sad and true part is that there are people in our society who silently agree with the comments made by the convict and his lawyers who believe that a women going out at night with someone other than her father or brother or son will and should be looked down upon. But the same people want her to hold the family together and like to claim they uphold women liberty and hold every women as a mother like.
Even for the countless working women in our society, the interesting fact is house chores still remain her responsibility, the kitchen, the cooking, the cleaning. As the idiot male in these households sits and sip the tea claiming to be the head of the household, blame the salt in the food and the stain on the shirt what he does is spit into the same womb he came from.
No all males are not same, and I don’t think they are the majority in our society either. But the fact is that some of them even hold very respectable positions in our society and sadly the society is perfectly OK with it. I am not generalizing but yes there are many men who feel women are below them and this documentary is a slap on their face and also on those who let these men carry on.
Our society gives the lawyers and the convicts the muscle to say these derogatory statements on women in public. That is what we should be concerned, not a British film maker making a documentary on an Indian rape incident that brings to the world how these animals think and speak.

Ms. Lekhi is afraid India would not be ‘Shinning’ as much as she would like it to after screening the truth.
I think Lekhiji immediately deserves a Padma award for her continuous contribution to bigotry through TV debates and speeches, eventually of course a Bharat Ratna.
She is among the special, the chosen, the ratna of Modi Sarkar.
It is heartening to see that this article is written by a man. It proves that there is still hope for our country. As for politicians like this dumb female, they should be made to quit their position and work at centers for women who are raped or abused. Maybe they will have some empathy for the victims then instead of the false sense of patriotism
This documentary was also about the revulsion India felt and the nationwide protest that was unprecedented in the world. It tried to shame the people of India with the rapist’s mentality like the lawyers and Mulayam Singh & company. BJP has missed the point. That is what happens when you pass dictats without knowing the facts: in this case not seeing the video. On NDTV Dushyant Dave was making a similar stupid comment.
If Ms Lekhi has indeed made such a statement, it is to be strongly condemned. She certainly needs to apologise and I shall certainly think twice before voting for her aga
The point is all these foreigners make movie in India and call all men rapist. They quote the statement from rapist and generalize that as every mans’ mentality. Wake up people, it is worldwide problem and needs attention worldwide. Do not label the whole nation as rapist. I suggest Indian film makers to make some movies in US on incest, white cops killing blacks, child abuse etc and call the whole nation investors, white superimists and child abusers… You think that will right? I don’t think anyone has problem with movie makers. But the problem is how they portray reality. No one in the world will protest and unite the way Indians did against the rape. But you know what the rest of the world saw? They saw Indians rape……go figure …good luck people.
The Documentary does not portray all men as Rapists… I have seen it I did not feel it and I am an Indian male
