India's Daughter

India’s Modi takes on rape issue in his first Independence Day speech - The Washington Post:

Today, as we hear about the incidents of rapes, our head hangs in shame,” Modi
said. “I want to ask parents, when your daughter turns 10 or 12 years
old, you ask: ‘Where are you going? When will you return?’ Do parents
dare to ask their sons: ‘Where are you going? Why are you going? Who are
your friends?’ After all, the rapist is also someone’s son. If only
parents would decide to put as many restrictions on their sons as they
do on their own daughters.”

Think about this for a minute. What did Leslee Udwin's India's Daughter show that's different from what Modi said?

Will the Home Minister of India look into this speech, and ban it
please, so the "prestige" of the nation is protected? Thank you.
