BJP questions Rahul’s silence over Tanzanian woman incident

New Delhi  (PTI): BJP today targeted Congress for its “hypocrisy” in not initiating action against the culprits in the Tanzanian woman stripping case in Bengaluru and questioned Rahul Gandhi’s “silence” over the incident that happened right under the nose of his party government.

The party accused the Congress government in Karnataka of covering up the incident and said its “inaction” has brought disrepute to Bangalore city. It also demanded immediate action, including transfer of DGP and suspension of police officers concerned.


“Such a big incident has happened and so much time has passed, still Rahul and Congress are silent for something that has happened under the very nose of their government there. No action has been taken. This shows how much hypocrisy is there in them and how they play hypocritical politics,” Union Minister and senior BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said.

“It is shameful that those who are experts in creating a mountain out of a molehill have suddenly turned silent and their silence seems to justify such an unfortunate incident,” Naqvi said.

A Tanzanian woman student was allegedly beaten up and stripped by a mob in a case of “mistaken identity” after a woman was mowed down by a car in the city.

The 21-year-old Tanzanian, who is doing her Bachelor of Business Management course, was dragged out of the car in which she was seated along with her three friends on Sunday night.

Naqvi said the incident is very unfortunate and “certainly the Congress is answerable for it”.

Further attacking Rahul Gandhi and Congress, he said they create problems even when there are none and hold dharnas and demonstrations to vitiate the atmosphere.

  1. How many such attacks of people of foreign origin and tourists are taking place in India? If Sri. Rahul Gandhi has to cry about every such incident, he has to spend the whole month about those issues. This event was a shameful thing upon the nation. The culprits must be strictly punished without any mercy. There was no political hands behind her mishandling, it was the jobless street goons, they must be forced to walk with bare clothing in the public and be beaten by the public.

    The suicide of the Dalit PhD student was not at all identical to the Tanzaian women’s stripping case; it was caused by a leading Minister at New Delhi, Srimiti Irani. Now, she has been shielded as totally innocent. Do you justify Mr. Modi’s silence at the Dadri event and the killing of the Dalits in the State of Haryana, the derogatory remark of Minister Singh?
