Public labels PPP leader Nabil Gabol's insensitive comments on rape as 'horrendous'

Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Nabil Gabol’s recent comments about rape have set the internet on fire. The political representative’s remarks have led to an uproar on social media.

The public could not hold back its horror and shock, as they tried to make sense of the analogy, its context, and the way the statement was made.

In an interview, Gabol talked about sexual abuse, where he said that ‘if rape is imminent, you should enjoy it.

“There is a saying in English: if rape is imminent, just enjoy it,” he said in a clip that went viral on social media platforms. When the host denies these remarks, he doubles down on if and says that if you’re so hopeless that you have to endure it, then you should ‘enjoy’ it.

“Otherwise, if you have any shame, you stand your ground and don’t endure it. When we endure it, we get used. How do you get used? I don’t believe in this thing that you have been forced. If you’re being forced, stand your ground – raise your voice. You can stand against it. What’s the worst that can happen? You’ll go to jail? He added.


Following his comments, Bakhtawar Bhutto and Fatima Bhutto both condemned the statement. While speaking on the matter, Bakhtawar remarked that Gabol is not a representation of their party.

Meanwhile, Fatima Bhutto labeled these comments as ‘Horrendous.’

This isn’t the first time Gabol has made controversial remarks. Previously, he ‘bragged’ about picking up and abducting any girl that he likes. In a podcast with Nadir Ali, the PPP leader said that Karachiites keep their desires in their hearts, but ‘we don’t keep our feelings in our hearts.’

Likewise, many other people also talked about this issue, where they expressed their concerns and remarked that the comments were deeply problematic.
