Amid the barbaric rape cases being coming out every day in several parts of India, many celebrities in and around the world are taking to social media to react to these horrifying incidents.
In between all the outrage comes a filmmaker Daniel Shravan who has suggested a shocking measure to tackle the growing menace of sexual assault and murder.
Shravan, in his detailed post that has now been deleted, suggested that instead of calling for police help, women should carry condoms and cooperate with rapists in order to save themselves from the fate of murder.
Check out the post:
Ideas going around.
Some of this content is in Telugu. Basically the ideas these men have given is – cooperate and offer condoms to prevent murder after rape, women’s organizations are the reason for rape.

Shravan further claims that legalizing ‘rapes without violence’ is the only way to control the brutal killings of rape victims. “Murder is a sin and a crime. Rape is a corrective punishment. No justice is going to happen with Nirbhaya Act or Priyanka Act. The agenda of rape is fulfilling the sexual needs of rapists based on that time or mood,” the filmmaker said in his Facebook post.
The further reads, “If these adamant bitches didn’t consent to the proposal made by the rapists, they will have no other way but to rape them”.
Later he deleted all his posts on Facebook and posted a new message apologizing for his comments. He backed his comments, saying that the lines were of a villain from his upcoming film and that his audience has misunderstood him.
Read Daniel Shravan’s full post here:
“Government should encourage legalize Rape Without Violence Scheme (No Killing after Rape). Girls above 18 should be educated on rapes (i.e. girls should not deny sexual desires of men). Only then these type of things will not happen. It is foolishness that killing Veerappan will control smuggling, killing Laden will control terrorism. In the same way, “Nirbhaya Act” can’t control “Rapes with Violence”. Especially Indian girls should be aware of sex education (carrying condoms and dental dams after age of 18). Simple Logic….when the sexual desire is fulfilled men wouldn’t kill women. Government should pass a scheme something like this to control deaths after rape. Society, women organizations and government are frightening rapists with Nirbhaya Act, pepper spray etc. Rapists are not finding a way to get their bodily sexual desires and getting these killing thoughts. An evil thought provokes crime (killing). Better women should accept men’s sex.”
Here’s how netizens reacted:
Whoever this Daniel Shravan is: needs medical help, maybe some heavy duty whacks up his butt, will help him clear his constipated mind.
Infuriating little prick. https://t.co/z8WVpClKTC
