A person is known by the thoughts he/she thinks in his/her mind and the words he/she speaks through his/her mouth.  It has always been stressed, as a mark of discretion and decorum, that common people like us should not open our mouth unwisely and unnecessarily. Keeping a disciplined, tight, and required watch and control over our thoughts and words is a symbol of a learnt, great, and a wise personality. But it seems that people who are above us (common people) in status, power, and influence i.e Indian leaders have totally forgotten the code and conduct of balanced thinking and right and proper speech. Whatever comes to their minds, they blurt out as if they are under some mental itch to relieve themselves out of some inner feeling of unpleasantness and discomfort – without foreseeing its implications and consequences . It really makes us fill with great shame, anger, and embarrassment when we come to know about absurd, irrelevant, and ridiculous comments of Indian political leaders on various burning issues in India. So let us go through some hilarious, preposterous, and  awkward comments of our Indian leaders:

Idiotic comments of Indian leaders on rape crimes in India:

1.  “Sometimes it is right, sometimes it is wrong.”

     -Babual Gaur, Madhya Pradesh Home Minister

 2.  “We should learn from the past… specially in Mughal era, people  used to marry their (young) girls to save them from Mughal atrocities and currently a similar situation is arising in the state. I think that’s the reason ‘khap’ has taken such a decision and I support it.” (It seems that through his comment Chautala is supporting Child Marriage and means that it could be helpful in reducing the number of rapes and other crimes against women in India)

   -Om Prakash Chautala, former Haryana Chief Minister:

3.  “One should not make such a big deal…”

    -Junior finance minister Santosh Gangwar on Asifa’s case

4.  “90% rape cases are consensual.”

    -Dharamvir Goyat, Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee member

5.   “Earlier if men and women would hold hands, they would get caught by parents and reprimanded but now everything is so open. It’s like an open market with open options. Rapes happen because men and women interact freely.”

   -Mamta Bannerjee, Chief Minister of West Bengal

6.  “Boys will be boys, they commit mistakes.”

    -Mulayam Singh Yadav, Samajwadi party supremo, on death penalty  to three men convicted in a gang rape case

8.  “Rape occurs in India, not Bharat.”

     -Mohan Bhagwat, RSS Chief

9.  “If a woman is caught (in a rape case), then both she and the boy should be punished. In India, there is death penalty for rape, but when there is consensual sex outside marriage, there is no death penalty against women.”

    -Abu Azmi, Samajwadi Party’s state president

10.  “To my understanding, consumption of fast food contributes to such incidents. Chowmin leads to hormonal imbalance evoking an urge to indulge in such acts.”

    -Jitender Chhatar, Haryan Khap Panchayat leader

11.  “Rapes take place also because of a woman’s clothes, her behavior and her presence at inappropriate places.”

    -Asha Mirje, Nationalist Congress Party leader

14.  “Honor of a vote is bigger than the honor of a daughter. Is a daughter’s honor is compromised, it affects only the family and the village or community, but if the vote’s honor is compromised, it impacts the entire nation. ”

    -Sharad Yadav, Janta Dal President, on the importance of vote

15.  “…the district will soon become a hub of terror…”

      -Union Minister Giriraj Singh while campaigning against Lalu       Yadav’s RJD in Bihar’s Araria constituency:
