Zodiac signs and rape

BY SN| IN Media Watch Briefs | 28/11/2014

TV9 telecast a Kannada astrology programme last Tuesday of predictions on rape, according to your zodiac sign. If it is Virgo, the probability is the girl will be raped between the ages of 14 and 20 and below the stairs in her own home. If you are a Capricon there is a possibility of your being raped by your mother or father or colleague. The solution is a mantra which appears on the screen. Write it on paper in red letters and keep it with you to recite when in danger of being raped. The same TV9 we shed tears for recently when it was forced off the air by a minister in the Karnataka state government.

The reporter also asked one of them what he thought about RG's hugging the PM and he effectively snorted in disapproval. When a panel discussion began after this,  more leading questions from the news anchor about this 'jadu ki jhappi."  And more criticism followed.
