The news of Priyanka Reddy’s death created huge furore in the country where people are shattered in deep shock, especially the parents of young girls. As the incident occurred around 9 30 in the night, few of the Indian parents restricted their daughters from going out or staying out after 8 pm in the night. A girl who faced such restriction from her parents, informed Chinmayi, one of the prominent metoo activist in South India.
The girl in her message to Chinmayi says that her parents started lecturing her not to roam outside after 8 pm. She who attends her dance class from 7 30 to 9 30 expressed her frustration to Chinmayi as she feels that Chinmayi is the only person who could understand her situation. “Why so? Because Guys can’t be changed and we should take our precautions” says the girl in her message.

The outcome of Priyanka Reddy burned in Hyderabad yesterday. Girls are asked to stay home.— Chinmayi Sripaada (@Chinmayi) November 29, 2019
Girls need to stop classes, hobbies, whatever they may do after work just so that they don’t get raped.

The forever statement of ‘Boys cant be changed so you safeguard yourself’. Always, ALWAYS— Chinmayi Sripaada (@Chinmayi) November 29, 2019
the onus of NOT getting raped is on the girl. Indian parents need to lay responsibility where it belongs.
Meme Pages on Instagram are reeking with sexual violence, fantasising acts with rods, no less. Sisters, mothers aren’t spared. Neither is the usage of images of children. I have been calling it out for weeks on Instagram. But nope. @instagram doesn’t find these violating policy— Chinmayi Sripaada (@Chinmayi) November 29, 2019
These meme pages have hundreds / thousands of young boys following and commenting, engaging actively about how they would like to rape the women / girls.— Chinmayi Sripaada (@Chinmayi) November 29, 2019
Bottom line – as much as parents police what their daughters do on social media, NO one checks their sons, brothers actions
