NEW DELHI: Against the backdrop of rising cases of rape, Prime Minister NarendraModi, during this Independence Day address, said that such incidents make "our heads hang in shame" and asked parents to take responsibility for their son's actions and put the same restrictions on them as they put on their daughters.

"Today, when we hear about incidents of rape, our heads hang in shame. People give different arguments. Some blame it on psychological problem. Every parent who has a 10-year-old girl at home, asks them where are they going, when will they come back and tell them to call back home after reaching their place.

"But have you ever asked your sone where he is son going, why are they going and who are their friends. After all, the person committing the crime is also someone's son," he said in his Independence Day speech.

Every mother and father should keep a tab on their sons and hold them accountable much like the way they put restrictions on girls, he said.

"Let every parent decide to put the same restrictions on their sons as they put on their daughters," he said.

He hinted at the fact that while the law will take its course and be strict on such crime, parents should be equally responsible to check such incidents.

The Prime Minister also voiced concern over cases of female foeticide, stressing that they be stopped and warned doctors against becoming a partner in such crimes.
