Kangana Ranaut says perpetrators should be hanged in public like in Saudi Arabia to stop gang rape
On Saturday, Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut expressed support for the anti-conversion ordinance against so-called profit jihad brought by the BJP government in Madhya Pradesh, saying it would help victims of fraudulent marriages. Kangana, often headlined by controversial posts on social media, advocated public executions to prevent crimes such as gang rape in countries like Saudi Arabia.
On Saturday, Madhya Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel approved an ordinance of the state government to punish proselytizing through fraud. It carries a maximum sentence of ten years in prison for fraudulently converting to marriage.
Ranaut told reporters here that this is a very good law. Many are in trouble. This law is made for such people. Ranaut, who came here to shoot a photo, said in response to a question that the government had finally taken this very good step.
Asked about the growing number of rape cases in the country, the actress said that the hearing of such cases has been going on for a long time and the victims should be disturbed in the process. The burden of proving the allegations against the accused in such cases is also on the victim. He said that more than half of the accused have been acquitted in this long legal process.
Citing the example of many countries like Saudi Arabia, Ranaut said, “There, criminals are hanged in public squares. Even here, unless we do five or six such examples, such crimes will not stop because people here easily commit crimes.”
