People slam journalist who suggested the BJP is politicizing rape in Assam

South Asia Editor of Asia Times, Saikat Datta, shared an article recently on Twitter accusing the BJP of politicizing rapes in Assam for electoral gains. BJP MLA from Hojai, Shiladitya Dev, had suggested that illegal immigrants were responsible for the majority of crimes against women in the state.

People on Twitter weren’t too happy with the journalist accusing BJP of politicizing rape when the media along with certain sections of the political spectrum were communalizing the heinous Kathua rape case and slammed the journalist for his hypocrisy.

We have earlier reported on the series of rapes that has rocked the state of Assam in recent times. Unfortunately, the only time mainstream media decided it was worth outraging about was when they accuse BJP of politicization of rape.
