In an HBO interview with Axios, Khan remarked
In the interview with HBO, he said that if women wear few clothes, there will be an impact on men. Well, that is understandable because if good looking men wear revealing and fitted clothes, women will also attract to them. But then the PM went on and said the problematic statement. When the interviewer asked that does the PM think that the dresses of women lead to sexual violence (aka rape), he replies that it depends on society.
