Makes a Rape joke then deletes it, Bestselling author. RT @chetan_bhagat: The Rupee is asking, is there no punishment for my rapists?
“The Rupee is asking, is there no punishment for my rapists?”
Chetan Bhagat (or Jay Panda, for that matter) would never make a joke like that about terrorists after 26/11, or about the Line of Control after Indian soldiers get killed there, or the flood victims of Uttarakhand or the children killed after a school meal in Bihar.
That he thought it fit to make a joke about rape shows that somewhere inside, rape, and the outcry over rape, is still considered trivial compared to those other tragedies.
That he deleted it without apology makes it more shameful than less. Chetan Bhagat once wrote a best-seller called The 3 Mistakes of my Life.
Maybe he could add a fourth one to that list now.
