‘Human Rights’ activist John Dayal asks fellow panelist to ‘rape’ a woman if he wanted to, normalises sexual assault on live TV

Controversial Christian activist and self-proclaimed human rights activist John Dayal, stoked a huge controversy. Dayal tried normalised rape culture by asking a fellow panellist, Prafulla Ketkar to go and rape anybody he wanted. He said that Ketkar rape anybody and nobody would stop him. Prafulla Ketkar is the Editor of Organiser, a publication affiliated with the RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh).

The Times Now debate

In a Times Now debate, John Dayal and other panellists including Prafulla Ketkar were discussing the issue of inclusion of the history the RSS in the syllabus of the second year BA (History) course in Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University.

During the course of the debate, John Dayal referred to the RSS as ‘murderous secret society’ with two faces. In the whole debate, Dayal went on to make unsubstantiated claims against the RSS.

Responding to John Dayal’s tirade, Prafulla Ketkar accused him of being secretive himself and a supporter of rapists and paedophiles. Ketkar referred to various church abuses and crimes committed by Christian priests.

He then questioned John Dayal regarding his dubious human rights activism and his silence during the Bishop Franco rape case. Dayal made a shocking remark claiming that Ketkar could also ‘rape’ the nun and nobody will stop him from doing so.

As a ‘human rights activist,’ Dayal’s insensitive remark sent shock waves in the Times Now studio.

Calling his statement obnoxious, Times Now Editor Navika Kumar immediately asked Dayal to apologise to Prafulla Ketkar. John Dayal had to finally apologise on the live show as fellow panellists asked him to take back his comments and tender an apology to Ketkar.

Who is John Dayal

John Dayal, an ultra left-wing ideologue, is often known for his bigotry views. He has time and again exposed his anti-Hindu and anti-Indian views. Recently, he had even been part of the nexus, which stood for Rohingyas. He had even written to Prime Minister Modi to not deport the illegal Rohingya immigrants from India despite these posed a national security threat to the country.

A known punching bag of Arnab Goswami, John Dayal is known for his bigotry. Dayal is also the secretary general of the All India Christian Council and a past president of the All India Catholic Union. He was part of the 32-member group which drafted the controversial Communal Violence Bill. If at all the Parliament had passed the bill, it would have been a death knell on the Hindus of the country.
