Bollywood celebrities including Kriti Sanon, Pooja Bedi and Swara Bhasker have slammed BJP MLA Surendra Singh from the Baria constituency in Uttar Pradesh for his comment on rape crimes. The MLA said that rapes can be stopped if parents inculcate good values in their daughters.
“Teach daughters how to not get raped??? Can he hear himself talk? THIS is the MINDSET that needs to change! Its so messed up! Why can’t they give some sanskaar to their sons???,” Kriti wrote on Twitter reacting to Singh's statement.

Surendra Singh was asked about his opinion on the increasing number of rape cases in Uttar Pradesh during a recent press meet. “I am a teacher. Even if the government stands with the sword, such incidents wouldn’t stop. Such incidents will stop when parents give sanskaar to their daughters and inculcate (good) values in them,” he said.
“The way it is the duty of the government to give protection, likewise, it is the duty of the family and parents to inculcate sanskaar in their children. The parents should teach them polite behaviour. The combination of sanskaar and government can make the country beautiful. There is no other way out,” he added.
