MNS Chief Raj Thackeray wants Sharia law against rapists
Ahmednagar (Maharashtra): Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) head Raj Thackeray on Monday said that there is a need of Sharia law to put a check over the crimes against women and children.
The arms and legs of those who rapes and murders should be slashed, said Raj Thackeray.
His statement came in the backdrop of a rape of 15-year old girl on July 13 in Kopardi village of Ahmednagar, where a victim was killed after being gangraped by three men.
Raj Thackeray, who had visited Kopardi village, met the family of the 15-year old girl.
Slamming Bharatiya Janata Party, Thackeray said;
- Such incidents are the outcome of the collapsed law and order situation in the state and the present government is proving itself worse than the past Congress-NCP led government.
- There is an urgent need to create the laws like Sharia (Islamic law) for controlling serious crimes against the women and the children.
- The anti-social elements are creating a state of terror and there is a need to make the laws stringent.
- Our normal legal procedures take undue long time for the judgements and it indirectly boosts the courage of the criminals.
Maharashtra Chief Minister had also met the family of gangrape victim to express condolences.
