Punjab’s education minister Surjit Singh Rakhra, gave birth to a new controversy by making an insensitive remark over the death of a 13-year old girl, who along with her mother was pushed out of a bus after confronting an alleged molestation in Moga district of Punjab.

He said, “Nobody can stop accidents; whatever happens, happens by God’s will.”

The ruling Shiromani Akali Dal-BJP government of the state is also facing some despised criticism over the handling of the case. The bus in which such a brutal incident happened belongs to the Orbit Company, which is owned by the Badals, the family that governs Shiromani Akali Dal.

On the other hand, the girl’s family has refused to cremate her or to allow a post-mortem. The family is aiming to file a case against Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal. The family has also rejected a compensation of Rs 20 lakh and a government job for the mother.

Meanwhile, Congress leader, Randeep Singh Surjewala, tagged Rakhra’s statement as a crude form of disrespect towards women reflecting the ‘arrogance of power.’
