NEW DELHI: The Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, who blames “Fahashi” (vulgarity) for the increase in rape and sexual violence, has not been well received by the Indian weirdo Ravichandran Ashwin.
“Let’s have better parenting, please.” Tomorrow will rule today, “Ashwin tweeted as he responded to a media report on the Prime Minister’s remarks.

The cricketer-turned-politician made the remark during a question-and-answer session with the public on Sunday when a caller asked what the government was doing to address the rise in sexual violence in the country, particularly against children.
Khan said it was important for societies to protect themselves from “fahashi” (vulgarity), Geo News reported.
The Pakistani prime minister had said rape and sexual violence that got into the media was just one percent of the real horrific crimes of its kind.
Khan had said that when he went to the UK to play cricket in the 1970s, the “sex, drugs and rock and roll” culture was on the rise. He had said these days that divorce rates had “increased by up to 70 percent because of the vulgarity of this society”.
He had said that the whole concept of pardah (or cover-up or humility) in Islam has one purpose, which is to “keep temptation at bay”. The Pakistani Prime Minister said there are many people in society who “cannot keep their willpower in check”. “Iska kuch tou does aana thha na (it had to manifest itself in some way),” he added.
Official statistics in Pakistan show that at least 11 rape incidents are reported in the country every day. Over 22,000 cases have been reported to the police in the past six years. However, only 77 of the defendants were convicted, 0.3 percent of the total, Geo News reported.
In addition, Jemima Goldsmith, the former wife of the Pakistani Prime Minister, made a clear statement on Wednesday on her ex-husband’s controversial statements in which he blamed “fahashi” (vulgarity) for the rise in rape and sexual violence.
On Twitter, Jemima had also hoped the Pakistani Prime Minister’s rape comment was a “wrong quote or translation” while adding that the “responsibility rests with the men”.
While quoting the Koran, Jemima had said, “Tell the believing men to keep their eyes back and protect their private parts.” “The responsibility rests with men,” she added.

In a subsequent tweet, Jemima had said, “I hope this is a wrong quote / translation. The Imran I knew always said, ‘Put a veil on the man’s eyes, not the woman.'”
