CPI Leader Atul Anjan Blames Sunny Leone's Condom Ads For Rapes In India

In an acerbic rant captured on video, senior CPI Leader Atul Anjan has accused former porn star and Bollywood actress, Sunny Leone, of being "responsible for rapes" in India.

Other than claiming that Leone was from Australia and not Canada, Anjan also alleged that her role as brand ambassador for condom manufacturing company, Manforce, was the key cause for the increasing instances of rape in India.

Interestingly, Anjan, who also said that the actress had been introduced to films by director Mahesh Bhatt, seems to have come to these conclusions not just on the basis of her adverts, but also after watching her porn videos, which he said "made him sick".

His diatribe was greeted with much applause.

This is not the first time that Leone has been entitled the role of official catalyst for encouraging rapes, kidnapping and molestation in India: Earlier, Pramod Mutalik, the chief of the fringe hardline group Sri Ram Sene, had said the porn star should be deported back to America for the same reason.

Here's a look at one of the series of advertisements from Manforce that, according to Anjan, are the real reason for women getting raped in India:
