One wrote, "Monisha beta 'rapist group chat' bolo yeh 'bois locker room' is too middle class." Another said, " Bois locker room, not a group of teenagers, it's the mirror reflecting the society we live in. Reality is, it becomes sin only when you are exposed to society & till the things are in locker u r proud enjoy it & as u sneak out of locker u pretend as morally high."
"Scary and numbing! I personally don't have words for this. The mindset of these 16-17-year-old boys is disgusting. And they don't have any sort of guilt even all the things are public.
This is why it is so important to teach your sons how to behave."
