In an interview with The Hindu last week, Indian test captain Virat Kohli opened up about the way women are treated in India. He said he's especially perturbed by rapes and attacks on senior citizens.

"It has obviously been a major concern for a long time, especially rapes, molestations and eve-teasing. It is very disrespectful to look at women in that way... It comes from the kind of society that we have built over the years where women have always been known to be treated as inferiors. How can this be done? This mentality is disturbing and needs to be condemned."
