India's Prime Minister - Hold Boys Accountable to Curb Rape

India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said that with the rising cases of rape, he urged parents to treat their daughters and sons the same. 

"Every parent who has a 10 year old girl at home, ask them where are they going, when will they come back and tell them to call back home after reaching their place.”

“But have you ever asked as to where your sons are going? why they are going? and who are they making friends with? After all, the person committing the crime is the son of someone.”
Modi said that rape makes ‘our heads hang in shame’ and asked parents to take responsibility for their son’s actions and put the same restrictions on them as they put on their daughters.
