Time and again we have repeatedly emphasised that #CrimeHasNoGender. However, whenever the culprit is a woman and the victim is a man, our society often becomes deaf and dumb, calling it a one-off incident. Remember, if Men’ Rights do not affect you today, doesn’t mean your male family members are free for this menace for life.
Speak up against the crime and criminal, not the Gender.
