New Delhi: National Commission for Women chief Rekha Sharma has slammed Kerala MLA PC George for calling a rape survivor nun "prostitute" at a press conference. "I am ashamed of such lawmakers who are giving these statements," she said. She also claimed the nun was facing discrimination and not receiving support from the Church after she accused a Bishop of raping her.
Sharma noted that the commission would be writing to Kerala DGP Lokanath Behera to take action against such lawmakers. Sharma's comments come amid reports of Kerala MLA PC George abusing the nun. In his statement, the MLA asked why didn't the nun report the incident earlier.
