Manohar Lal Sharma says his clients are innocent.

An Indian woman who was raped and assaulted has been blamed by her attacker’s lawyers for the attack. Manohar Lal Sharma says the incident would not have happened if the woman was a “respected lady.” Howard Sattler spoke with the Director of the Centre for Social Research in New Delhi Dr Ranjana Kumari.

  • Since 1945 Western - Christian countries have given developing countries like India billions of foreign aid to improve their lifestyle. Unfortunately for women nothing has happened these cultures still think that women are no use according to mens laws. This woman who was raped murdered was more use to society being a medical student than the criminals who commited this crime. If India stopped their 12 year old female marrriages which a male rule their would be less poverty by one third so men are the blame for stuffing up their country.

  • Yes that is is what happens in India a woman gets raped and it is her fault,when Indian males go to Thailand the hotels have to make a rule where there is only one Indian male per room.As many as 6 will rent one room and take one girl back and hide in the toilet and gang rape the girl one of them has picked up,as is there arrogance and it is the girls fault if they do this
