Kerala MLA PC George calls rape survivor nun a prostitute: CM Pinarayi Vijayan must make an example of him

Yashee | September 12,2018

PC George is a repeat offender. He must not be allowed to get away with perpetrating rape culture.

Another day, another disgusting MLA. After Maharashtra BJP MLA Ram Kadam recently offered to “abduct women” for his constituents, we now have a legislator from Kerala outstripping him in crassness. 

PC George, an Independent MLA from Poonjar, told the media on September 8 that a nun, who has accused a Bishop of raping her repeatedly, is a “prostitute”, and that she “enjoyed it for 12 times” and hence, cannot cry rape “the 13th time”.

Everything about George’s statement is reprehensible.
