Question
I want to ask suppose it is in anyones prarabdh to be raped so why the rapist is sinner , when the rape was pre-defined.

Answer
Dear Saumy,

Prarabdha is not pre-defined karma but the result of the actions performed by one in the past. But everyone has some freedom to choose what to do and that is what creates Prarabdha Karma. So, a wrongdoer is making a wrong choice.

With best wishes,
Swami Narasimhananda
