Amid nation-wide outrage over the gang-rape of a Mumbai journalist, BJP leader and actor Hema Malini advised women not to go "anywhere they wanted" or they would "get caught". She also said that no Lord Krishna would come to save them in case they "got caught" because unlike Draupadi, they were unworthy.
"Don't take it so easy and go anywhere you want...anything can happen...you can get caught. Krishna would always come to protect Draupadi, but we aren't so spiritually-evolved that God will come and protect us," she said.
The 64-year-old mother of two daughters, she also added that it was important for women to protect themselves since "nobody is going to come to protect you."
