The Pakistan Human Rights Commission (HRCP) has condemned Prime Minister Imran Khan’s statement linking rape to pornography.
In a statement, the commission said it condemned Prime Minister Imran Khan’s impression that behind-the-scenes rape would stop.
He said that the statement of the Prime Minister blames the victims of sexual abuse instead of the perpetrators.
The HRCP said in a statement that the attitude of a public leader was unacceptable and Prime Minister Imran Khan apologized.
The HRCP added that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s statement showed his ignorance about the causes of sexual abuse.
The commission also said that victims of abuse ranged from children to victims of honor killings, adding that rape was a violent act and the government should renew its commitment to deal with it.
