    Bikram Singh Brahma, a Congress leader from Chirang district of Assam, has been arrested by the police for allegedly attempting to rape a woman.

    Mr Brahma, who is the Bodoland Territorial Area Districts' (BTAD's) Congress Co-ordination Committee President, reportedly tried to rape the woman in Salbari in Chirang around 2 am this morning.

    As the woman, who is a mother of two children, raised an alarm, her husband called his neighbours. Angry villagers then took Mr Brahma into their custody and did not let him escape. Local TV channels also showed villagers beating the Congress leader. They later called the police.

    The woman's husband has lodged an FIR against Mr Brahma; he has however denied the charges against him. Congress leaders in the district called the incident a "political conspiracy" to malign their party's image.

    Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi said he was happy the law had caught up with Mr Brahma. "I can assure you that none, whether from the Congress or anywhere else, would be spared," he said.

    Mr Gogoi said the government will also challenge the acquittal of one person in the molestation of a girl in Guwahati. "I am not happy that there was one acquittal in the case. I have ordered an inquiry to see if there were lapses," he said.

    Rapes occur in India, not Bharat: RSS supremo Bhagwat

    SILCHAR: RSS supremo Mohanrao Bhagwat criticized 'western' lifestyle of people in urban areas and said, without empirical evidence to back such a claim, that rape is prevalent mainly in cities where Indians are deeply influenced by western values and not by rural India. Various women's NGOs and even police records suggest rapes in rural areas largely go unreported.Addressing a citizens' meet here on Tuesday during his four-day visit to Silchar, Bhagwat said, "Such crimes hardly take place in 'Bharat', but they occur frequently in 'India'."You go to villages and forests of the country and there will be no such incidents of gang-rape or sex crimes. They are prevalent in some urban belts. Besides new legislations, Indian ethos and attitude towards women should be revisited in the context of ancient Indian values," Bhagwat said.The RSS, he said, was for stringent laws against rape and would welcome new legislation on sex crimes and favour capital punishment for those convicted of rape.Saying that the RSS backed the chorus across the country demanding death penalty for those responsible for the December 16 gang rape of 23-year-old Nirbhaya, who died on December 29, Bhagwat said this needed to be backed by stringent laws. He also slammed the government for applying force against the protesters at Delhi's Vijay Chowk.On Assam, Bhagwat said illegal infiltrators from Bangladesh are now in a position to dictate the politics of the state. He said such elements have been sneaking in through a porous international border, threatening the security and integrity of India. But, the RSS chief said, Assam would never become another Kashmir."We've been passing through a time when the country's border is not secure, and people are suffering from insecurity and price rise. There's seems no rescue from such situation," Bhagwat said.He said Hindus taking shelter in India from Bangladesh and Pakistan can't be called infiltrators. "Hindus should always be treated on humanitarian ground. They can't become 'doubtful' voters. Many Hindus from Pakistan who took shelter in India were granted citizenship. This should be done in case of Hindus who came to India from neighbouring Bangladesh as well," the RSS leader said.

    It is true that rape cases are very very less in villages.

    Maybe, but village is village, and Bharat is Bharat.

    The article is total codswallop regarding the rape portion. Agree with BD immigration in Assam portion.

    Because thy are not reported?

    People in villages are under the control of local landlords. The statement by Mr Bhgwat is incorrect.

    Rapes in Bharat dont come out easily..while rapes in India come to media attention easily...

    If this guy said what he said :facepalm:

    Or there is a chance of media twisting what he said also.

    Went through his speech and this is the crux of what he said - "Indian ethos and attitude towards women should be revisited in the context of ancient Indian values,".

    If absence of rapes is the criteria to determine Bharat, then we can safely conclude that there is no such thing as Bharat anywhere.

    there is a thought that many of the rapes are committed by villagers coming to big cities. Respect for women over the history of Bharat has ahoay been lacking. The khaps are opposing tough anti rape laws. These are all villagers.

    When in "divine" times Draupadi "vastraharan" was attempted, what are we talking about here?

    Yes, village is a village and not "Bharat" but in villages it is impossible to get away for the convict. One of such incident happened in a village I know, the rapist was hunted and almost beaten to death before he was handed over to the Police.

    Vulgar item-songs, small cloths culture and fearless criminals are behind all these rapes :fyeah: I don't know why these protesters doesn't protest against useless vulgar item-songs in the movies ?

    Bhagawat is somewhat true.

    Mohan Bhagwat comes across as an empty vessel, making the same old noise of "ancient Indian values". I've had about enough of this silliness being spread all around.

    In "Bharat", the Khap Panchayats are known to have issued diktats to rape women as "punishment". In "Bharat", there has been a history of mass rape as punishment for caste issues. In "Bharat", we hear about Dalit women being paraded naked ever so often. What nonsense is Mohan Bhagwat talking here? The reality is that men from "Bharat" rape women from "India" ever so often, which receives wide media coverage. Men from "Bharat" raping women from "Bharat" does not get media coverage, which is why people like Mohan Bhagwat can delude themselves.

    And I have noticed that people like Mohan Bhagwat speak a lot about "rich ancient culture". Unfortunately, such people try to ape the Abrahamics in prudishness. Our ancient culture was much more liberal and tolerant than MB can imagine. The Islamic invasions and Victorian prudishness changed us. While the original great prudes, the Brits, have become liberal, these people continue to try to ape the prudes of the Victorian era.

    The diagnosis is wrong. The reason for rapes is the sexual deprivation of a vast segment of our population. Unless there is more liberalism and openness in society, and less hypocrisy and repression, this problem will not go away.

    Wrong.

    Most of the rapes in villages don't get reported.

    another dumba## with oral diarreah!

    ofcourse rape happens in metros more, 'coz more people live in metros. western lifestyle has just this to do with, that the scoundrels come from village w/o any idea of modern life-sryle, equality of gender and sees modern women as legitimate target. most of the heineous crimes on women in metros by strangers are done by those.

    btw, one will be surprised how little ccrime happens in rural india, if one goes by police records. Which tells us a story of police complacency, not otherwise.

    Rape is rape, no bharat or India for it or for that matter world, statistics shows that in UK and US it is worse. BTW i must say that reports in Delhi are much better then other parts of India. In other parts either police dont register case or victim is to scared to report the matter.

    Re: Rapes occur in India, not Bharat: RSS supremo Bhagwat

    The sexual deprivation is also one of the reasons for such crimes, but the point remains that these people are not scared of law and prosecution process. Rape occurs only when a person gets sexually excited, not without it. And sexual excitement are largely due to semi-open society where the rich is enjoying everything and the poors are only drooling, our society is semi-open, and we can not adopt our ancient open culture anytime soon, until we do so these rapes will happen, but one thing is sure we can't get back our ancient culture by promoting shameless item songs in Hindi and south Indian movies, I won't say that this is the sole reason for the rapes, but it's a critical factor which is producing more and more fearless rode-side Romeos who later turn out to be rapists.

    In a sexually deprived society there are other ways to get the sex, but this crime has some other reasons behind it, specially gang rapes.
