Rape is not a sexual act, but a show of masculinity - Taslima Nazrin
Rape is not a sexual act, but a show of masculinity which should be wiped out. Says writer Taslima Nazrin. She said, nobody was born as rapist or murderer and society made them so.
“ The patriarchal, misogynistic mindset that considers women inferior to men should be changed. Capital punishment is not a solution to any problem. Everyone has a right to life. People should get an opportunity to be better persons”. She added.
Nazrin said, laws that stood against freedom of expression, in any country, should be repealed. She demanded that governments should pay heed to the sentiments of non-believers in the same way they sympathised with the sentiments of believers of all religions. Claiming that all religions should stand for equality. “True believers would never attack innocents as religions stand for peace”, she said.
Ms.Nazrin said, she did not believe in the “nexus between jihadis and communists” as their ideologies were polar opposites. “A true jihadi or a true communist cannot support each other”.
