Ken Clarke has made some widely criticised comments about some rapes being less serious than others, do you think this is an attitude that exists in the Asian community?

Ken Clarke has faced calls to resign after getting himself into trouble over comments he made about rape on a BBC Phone-In.

Defending a proposed new government policy on the length of prison sentences for rapists, he disagreed with the comment "rape is rape"

Ken Clarke singled out some cases of date rape as being less serious. Do you think this sort of opinion is widely held in the Asian community? Do you think the Asian community will see date rape to be the same as rape within marriage? After all, rape is rape, isn't it?

We want to hear from you, so pick up the phone and get involved.

After 2 it's time to get into shape! Whether it's bingo wings you want to get rid of, or your stomach needs toning up, fitness trainer Kapil Lakhani will tell you how. It's all part of Get Healthy Month on BBC Asian Network.
