“Put a veil on the man’s eyes not on the woman,” Jemima recalls what the Imran Khan she knew used to say

LONDON – British producer and the former wife of Prime Minister Imran Khan is hoping that what she heard about her Ex husband is either ‘misquoted’ or ‘mistranslated’ saying that the Imran Khan she knew used to say something else.

This was after after the premier blamed inappropriate dresses of women for rise in sexual assault cases during a live telethon session on Sunday.

The insensitive comments of PM Khan have sparked global outrage after blaming how women dress for a surge in harassment cases and he advised women to dress appropriately to prevent lure for men who lacked self-control.

Taking to social site Twitter, Jemima, 47, wrote that the Pakistan Prime Minister`s rape comment apparently seems mistranslation as the Imran she knew used to say, Put a veil on the man`s eyes, not on the woman.

Jemima while quoting a Quran verse said: Say to the believing men that they restrain their eyes and guard their private parts. “The onus is on men,” it added.

Earlier on Sunday, the premier said incidents of rape and sexual violence that make their way to the media are just less than five percent of the actual heinous crimes.

It is to be noted here that the sexual assault stat of the south Asian country have revealed that at least 11 rape incidents are reported in the country every day, with over 22,000 cases reported to the police in the last six years.

On the other hand, only 77 of the accused have been convicted which comprises not even 1 percent of the total figure.
