Thank God men only heckled, did nothing else: Dilip Ghosh on woman CAA protestor

Dilip Ghosh

In another outrageous remark at a pro-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) rally that took place on Thursday in West Bengal, Dilip Ghosh said that a woman who was heckled by party supporters should thank her stars that nothing happened to her.

At the rally, led by Ghosh himself, from Patuli to Bagha Jatin area, a lone woman protesting against the CAA was seen carrying an anti-CAA poster, condemning the deplorable shootout at Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) University in New Delhi that had taken place during the day.

The woman was heckled and verbally abused by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) supporters and was rescued by the police posted in the area.

Soon after this, speaking to reporters, Dilip Ghosh said, “Our men did the right thing. She should thank her stars that she was only heckled and nothing else was done to her.”

 

 

"Why do they (protestors against the CAA) always come to our rallies to protest? They can go to other events. We have tolerated a lot but now we won't tolerate such nuisance," he also added.

However, the woman was undaunted by Ghosh’s comment and said that she would continue to protest against the “fascist BJP”.

AN FIR has been filed against Dilip Ghosh in the matter under charges 354A, 509 and 506 and 34 of the IPC.

Dilip Ghosh’s threatening and misogynistic remark against the woman just goes to show the culture embedded in the minds of BJP leaders. Not only has he communally outraged people in the past, his latest comment only propagates male chauvinism that will only provide furtherance to the crimes against women without the fear of being apprehended.
