Retired Indian Army Major General Sinha has called for rape of Kashmiri women, on live television. Just when you think their bigotry has reached its limit, turns out there’s always someone who makes you question humanity.
Recently, the ex-General SP Sinha was part of a live television program. During the program, despite pleas from the anchor and everyone else to keep his ‘rape advocacy’ to himself, he began shouting ‘rape for rape’ at the top of his lungs.

Netizens are even calling this the true face of India.
Yesterday, an ex Indian Army general called for rape and murder of Kashmiri Muslims on TV. He will be soon rewarded with a governorship for this criminal act in RSS/BJP controlled India. Goons like this are protected by the infamous Indian law, AFSPA. #StandWithKashmir #Kashmir

After seeing on TV an Indian retired general now a member of parliament for BJP-ordering rape of Kashmiri women one feels sorry for the country that once was proud of secularism and tolerance. Modi has turned Hindustan into Rapestan.

So no stripping his medals is not enough when General Sinha is a part of the government. This man is a policy-maker in India. His policy for women and Kashmir is clear.
I strongly condemn Retired Major General SP Sinha
His medals, if any ,should be stripped by @adgpi, Army
Veterans need to condemn him @MajChowdhury

Then, of course, there were the apologists looking to blame it on anything but the prevalent mindset.

Thou shall have Sex Slaves and Work Slaves. Koran 4:3, 4:24, 5:89, 33:50, 58:3, 70:30. How do you deal with this ideology? The Indian Army General is wrong, but you should also criticize 1990 Kashmiri Pandit's genocide and rape by muslims.

At this point, it’s not even surprising how the crowd supported General Sinha’s stance. They’ve done it all before.

Indian armed forces have already used rape and innocent killings as war weapon in Kashmir. Remember Channapora 1990, kunanposh 1991, chaksaid pora 1992, wavoosa in 1997 and lot more. Fake encounters and mass graves. This army general is the symbol of Indian oppression. https://t.co/0qgIkhWvnK

It wasn’t just a statement by ex army general, mass rapes like in Kunan/Poshpora are testament to his words. They’ve used rape as a tool to curb dissent. Thousands of Kashmiri women were raped. Indian forces committed gang-rape of 882 Kashmiri women in 1992 alone. @IfraJan_

According to 1996 Human Rights Watch report, India uses rape as a “counter-insurgency tactic” in Indian Occupied Kashmir to terrorize the populace.
The ex-military man has a history of using rape as a ‘strategy. Back in 1991, the then Brigadier Sinha assembled Sikh villagers in a locality, calling for ‘creating a new breed for Punjab’ when the Indian military was crushing the Sikh movement in Punjab
“If any action occurs in this village, every single male is going to be taken out and shot. Then we’re are going to take all the women to our camp and there we’re going to create a new breed for Punjab.”
Ex-General Sinha is no ordinary war criminal, he has a knack for sexual violence against women. Then again with the Hindutva movement’s open prejudice towards women, this is no surprise. Particularly the Bhartiya Janata Party is known for inviting trolls involved in cyber crimes against women to their social media forums.
