Pakistan Prime minister Imran Khan drew flak after he once again blamed a rise in the cases of sexual violence on how women dress in the country. “If a woman is wearing very few clothes, it will have an impact on the men, unless they are robots. It’s just common sense,” Imran Khan said in an interview with ‘Axios on HBO’. “This is cultural imperialism. Whatever is acceptable in our culture, must be acceptable everywhere else. It’s not,” he added.
Imran Khan’s comments in the interview have caused a massive outrage on social media, with opposition leaders and journalists expressing anger and disgust against the misogynistic ideology. “Imran Khan is r*pe apologist and hates women,” Anaya Khan, one of the users, tweeted with the video of the interview on the microblogging site.
