Meera Jasmine recommends castration for rapists

Meera Jasmine has said painful punishments like castrationis the only way to deal with those sexually assaulting women in the country.

“Such sex maniacs attacking should be given painful punishments and castration is the only way. If these sexual abusers aren’t given painful punishment, they will never understand the pain of women,” she said.

Addressing a press meet along with actor Anoop Menon and mother of a Dalit woman who was allegedly raped and murdered at nearby Perumbavoor recently, the actress said existing laws were not adequate to deal with such crimes.

The perpetrators of rape crimes should be castrated, an angry Jasmine said. “Only if they realize the pain of their victims, will they ever stop such atrocities against women,” she said.

“If such persons are given painful punishment, they will never dare to touch a woman in their life,” the actress said.

The press conference was organised as part of promotion of her upcoming Malayalam movie on rape victims “pathu kalpanakal”.
