Shouldn't have used 'prostitute' word: PC George

ANI  |  Trivandrum (Kerala) [India] 

Member of (MLA) PC George, who recently stoked a controversy by calling a nun "prostitute", on Wednesday, said that he shouldn't have used "such a word". The MLA, however, stood by his previous statement.

George, an Independent MLA from Poonjar constituency in the Kottayam district of state, said "I am against the behaviour of the nun. According to me, she is not a nun.. To refer any women as a prostitute is wrong. It is a personal disregard. I should not use such a word. But I strongly stand by the statement which I had said regarding that woman, that's a fact.. I am strongly against her behaviour. Her behaviour is not like a Christian."

On September 8, George called the nun who has accused of Jalandhar, of rape, a "prostitute". "No one has doubt that the nun is a prostitute. Twelve times she enjoyed it and the thirteenth time it is rape? Why didn't she complain the first time?" he had said.

Earlier, the Commission of Women (NCW) condemned George's statement and summoned him on September 20.
