Daniel Shravan, who calls himself a filmmaker, has triggered outrage on social media with his misogynistic comments in a Facebook post featuring remarks like women should "carry condoms and cooperate in rape".
Shravan made the controversial comment after days after the charred body of a 26-year-old woman, working as an assistant veterinarian at a state-run hospital, was found under a culvert at Shadnagar near in Hyderabad on November 28 morning a day after she went missing. The incident triggered a nationwide anger and grief.
He deleted his profiles after uproar over the remark.
According to the filmmaker, “women should carry condoms and cooperate in rape”.
Shravan took to Facebook to suggest that women should carry condoms and save themselves from getting murdered, instead of calling up the police. He also mentioned that women should cooperate with rapists in the act and offer the rapist a condom so that they don’t get killed.
“Murder is a sin and a crime. Rape is a corrective punishment. No justice is going to happen with Nirbhaya Act or Priyanka Act. The agenda of rape is fulfilling the sexual needs of rapists based on that time or mood.”
He added that rape should be rationalised and “rapes without violence” should be legalised as that’s the only way to control rape victims getting murdered.
He added: “Instead of dialling 100 carry condoms with U... Women safety is only possible through condoms not through Nirbhaya Act.
Singer Chinmayi Sripaada shared the screenshots of his note on her Twitter page and slammed Shravan.

Some of this content is in Telugu. Basically the ideas these men have given is - cooperate and offer condoms to prevent murder after rape, women’s organizations are the reason for rape.

She added: “Also, he would advice the same to his own family. Content in Telugu. ‘Sick if these women’s drama. Will they rape if they accept our proposal?’ Poiny is if women say no to deviants like him, rape is the only option for ‘Adamant bitches’”
Actress Kubbra Sait reacted: “Whoever this Daniel Shravan is: needs medical help, maybe some heavy duty whacks up his butt, will help him clear his constipated mind. Infuriating little prick.”
