Bengaluru is still recovering from the shocking incidents of molestation that have been reported from the city in the past week.

A chilling CCTV footage of a woman getting assaulted by two men had generated great outrage, as it came soon after reports of multiple incidents of molestation fat MG Road and Brigade Road in the city.

Amidst all the outrage the incident has witnessed, here is a woman whose words will leave you speechless.

On Saturday, Maate Mahadevi, the spiritual head of the Basava Dharma Peetha, said that the women were to blame for the incidents of molestation reported on MG Road and Brigade Road.

“Such incidents do not happen in other places. They happen only in cities like Bengaluru. If women cover themselves from head to toe, then they will not attract the attention of men and such incidents will not happen,” Maate Mahadevi said at a programme in Dharwad.

She goes on to say that women should not step out of their houses after 12 am. “Women should abide by our culture and not doing so is also the cause for such incidents,” she adds.
