Kerala Congress MP Hibi Eden’s wife Anna Linda Eden has surrounded herself with criticism as she knowingly or unknowingly posted a controversial statement on rape. She explains that Fate is like rape, and if someone cannot resist it, they should try to enjoy it. However, being a law student and a journalist, it is obvious people will protest the incident for the sake of being a public figure.
