UPFA MP Namal Rajapaksa joined in condemning violence against women, requesting a shift in the moral value system to change the situation.
Posting on his official Twitter handle, Rajapaksa said that he was hearing of many rape cases in SriLanka recently. “Have rape incidents increased or are they being reported more?” he asked.
He then went on to comment on the violence against women in the world, saying that such incidents were on the rise despite worldwide efforts against it.
Rajapaksa acknowledged that law and order cannot address the issue alone.
