Bhagyaraj made obnoxious comments blaming women for sexual assault

Tamil filmmaker K Bhagyaraj is receiving a lot of flak for his recent comments on rape. The comments were made at the music launch of the film Karuthukalai Pathivu Sei. Speaking at the event, the filmmaker said rapes were not just the fault of men but also women who are careless and let men use them. 

Bhagyaraj said, "Women create a situation that allows mistakes to happen. Things will be alright if you behave correctly. You can’t always only blame boys."

"Women these days are always on the phone, which is why they are being exploited. There were times when restrictions were imposed on women. No such crimes happened during those times," he added.

He went on to blame women for rapes and said, “So, if men are to be blamed, then women are also just as wrong.”

Bhagyaraj's obnoxious, sexist and misogynistic comments have outraged the internet.

Karuthugalai Pathivusei is reportedly based on the Pollachi sexual assault and extortion case that came out in February this year. The film chronicles the story of a woman, who is duped by people she had met online.
