Individuals of power and groups from the general public legitimize rape by reprimanding the casualty for it, saying she was requesting it. From addressing what she wore to what time she went out to on the off chance that she was taking after the ‘western culture’, individuals attempt to point the finger at it on the young lady. Why doesn’t the general public question the guilty party’s activities?
This video uploaded by Cinemonkz, demonstrates how a ‘simple young lady’ in any capacity is not requesting it. They entirety up every last circumstance well in the short video and give out a truly solid message.

19. “They tried to copy the Westerners, not only in their mindset but even in their dressing,” he said. “So some disturbance, some girls are harassed, these kinds of things do happen.”
We decided to make a video to tell people and tell our leaders that #NoGirlEverAsksForIt #LetHerBe #WalkAwayFromSexualAssault #Bengalurushamefulincident #StopVictimBlaming
Belief in this myth can lead us to blame the victim and not hold the rapist. Alcohol, Drugs, provocative clothing are means to be blamed by society/people or an excuse for sexual assault. But the only thing necessary for a rape to happen is the presence of a rapist.
