Gauahar Khan slap incident: 'Short skirts instigate youths to commit crimes'

Akil Malik, the 24-year-youth who has been hogging the limelight for the last two days for slapping model and actress Gauhar Khan on the set of a TV show, stunned everyone again by providing insensitive justification for his action.

When police enquired as to why he slapped the actress, the accused said girls who wear revealing clothes "damage the brains of the youngsters and provoke them to commit crimes."

"Actresses are the face of society and they should not wear skirts and short clothes as they make youngsters get attracted to them sexually. These days, boys who are minors are also committing crimes such as rape and molestation and many of them keep obscene photographs of actresses in their pockets. If actresses stop wearing short clothes, crime will decrease and lead to a better society," said an unapologetic Malik, according to Mid-day.
