Meera Jasmine suggests extreme punishment for rapists
Actress Meera Jasmine says tougher measures like ‘castration’ should be introduced to punish those who sexually assault women.
“Such sex maniacs attacking women should get painful punishments and castration is the only way. If these sexual abusers aren’t given painful punishment, they will never understand the pain of women,” she said.
The actress added that existing laws were not harsh enough to stop rapists from preying on women.
Meera made these comments while addressing a press meet in Kochi.
She was accompanied by the mother of a Dalit woman who was raped and murdered at Perumbavoor in Kerala recently.
The actress has organized the press conference to promote her forthcoming Malayalam film “Pathu Kalpanakal”, which is based on rape victims.
