Clergy Blames Brutalized Indian Woman For Rape

"Spiritual leader Asaram Bapu courted controversy for suggesting that the victim of the brutal sexual assault was equally responsible for the crime and saying the girl could have called her assailants brothers and begged them to stop.

Asaram's remarks on the gangrape of the 23-year-old girl sparked condemnation across the political spectrum and from women's bodies today with the BJP saying it was "regrettable, deeply disturbing and painful."

The 23-year old female victim who died after a brutal gang rape on a New Delhi bus is being blamed for the attack by a religious leader. Why? What did he expect her to do? Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss the ludicrous claim.
