I think people who are saying ‘death penalty’ essentially mean that the crime of rape is heinous and deserves the highest punishment (which in our existing laws is death penalty).

The real problem we face in sexual assault cases is the abysmal rate of conviction.

The Sexual Harassment at the Workplace (Prevention) Bill is also biased against women. It has a clause for punishing ‘false complaints’ by women.

I have never sought a ban on the documentary. The debate over airing or not airing is dated because the film is already out in the public domain.

My critique of the content, apart from the interview of the rapist, is not my basis for seeking postponement. But the title says India’s “daughter” ,  which is patriarchal and problematic.

I think it's bad pretty much the world over. Women's clothes are seen as linked with their moral calibre and sexual morality, so women's clothes are always a loaded issue in countries all over the world. India is no exception there, but India is not special either.

In France, with the burkini ban, the idea that covered dress is something which is some kind of insult to French culture. So, what it that? You're loading some kind of national burdens onto women's bodies and women's clothes. And all of them are burdens that take away from women's autonomy.

It has an interview with Sheila Dixit, the former chief minister of Delhi, talking about discrimination against women in our society. Dixit is actually one of those who is known to have made victim-blaming remarks herself when she was the chief minister. When a journalist was killed late in the night in Delhi, she actually said, "Why was she out at 3 o'clock at night — that's too adventurous of her!"

If there are lakhs of people angry and mourning, or sad, in Kashmir, if they have a resentment, then the way to deal with it is not to use bullets to claim lives or to use pellet guns to take away the eyesight of Kashmiri people.

We have to remember that Kashmir is not just a piece of land

I feel that Kasturba was not given the importance she deserved.There are no books about her contribution
