Nabil Gabol, a politician in Pakistan, has come under criticism after a number of disturbing and misogynistic comments he made on various podcasts surfaced. The political figurehead has made a number of offensive remarks that have gone viral on social media.
In one interview, Gabol is seen talking about sexual abuse. “There is a saying in English: if rape is imminent, just enjoy it,” states the politician in the clip. When the host denies the same, he doubles down on it, claiming that it is, in fact, a saying.
“If you’re so helpless that you can endure rape, then just enjoy it,” claims Gabol once again. “Otherwise, if you have any shame, you stand your ground and don’t endure it. When we endure it, we get used. How do you get used? I don’t believe in this thing that you have been forced. If you’re being forced, stand your ground – raise your voice. You can stand against it. What’s the worst that can happen? You’ll go to jail?
Twitteratis were utterly disgusted by this mans mentality stating how scary it is to know that such men are in power in the country.
Could someone please tell me this politician's name (the one being interviewed?) He's from PPP. Whoever he is, he's got the sickest mind ever. He just said 'When r*pe is imminent, just enjoy it'. What a sick, sick mind. If people like him ended up making our policies & laws, r*pe… pic.twitter.com/6B5rbalMkZ

In another podcast, Gabol was seen callously asking for famed social media sensation, Ayesha’s (Mera Dil Yeh Pukare Aaja) contact details in a suggestive manner.

In yet another video, he was seen saying that whereas people from Karachi keep their emotions bottled and release them in the bathroom, people like him ‘can simply get’ whomever they want.

As a result, he and PPP are on the receiving end of backlash from many Twitter users.
Utter filth. Nabil Gabol exposes the absolute criminal mindset of Sindh’s government. He has done nothing for Lyari, for the people he supposedly represents, and laughs while talking of such violence. Horrendous. https://t.co/rlRwiNoO6P

His (repulsive) rhetoric belongs to his individual only & is in noway a representation of our party. Incase it wasn’t already abundantly obvious- we absolutely & unequivocally stand for the rights & protection of women. Misogyny has no space in our religion nor our party. https://t.co/aFsDF8DjXA

PPP will fire some random twitter account holder but give tickets to such scumbag like Nabil Gabol.

"Hum jazbaat dil mein nahi rakhte. Jo pasand aagayi uthaaliya"
Nabil Gabol proudly talks about getting women picked up without their consent, asks for the number of a minor KID like a pervert but yet has the audacity to say "YoU HaVe DiRtY MiNd" to someone else https://t.co/KHhkC8RqQO
