Rahul Gandhi on Marital Rape

While the Delhi High Court continues hearing petitions on the criminalisation of marital rape, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday, 16 January, said in a tweet, “Consent is amongst the most underrated concepts in our society.” He added that it had to be foregrounded to ensure the safety of women.

Gandhi tweeted with the hashtag ‘MaritalRape’.

The Delhi High Court bench is hearing the final arguments on a batch of petitions, which states that the marital rape exception violates Article 14 (Right to Equality) and Article 21 (Right to Life) under the Constitution, and therefore, needs to be struck down.
