Hold up and read this.
From “ladke ladke hain, galti ho jati hai”, to “if a girl tells a boy she wants to have sex, she is doing a dhandha”, we have not come a long way!!
Unfortunately, we are still surrounded by people who have this mentality & ironically these are the kinds of spineless individuals that are in charge of our country or they are the ones who influence the masses.
But Mr. Khanna had a valid point to make, like, especially as lawyers, even we would want our audience to understand not to fall victim to people online.
However, not all of these extortionists, or those who actually put you in an uncomfortable or even threatening situations, are females.
How do we know or how does Mukesh Khanna know that the person trying to Scam someone over the phone or computer is a girl who, in his opinion, ought to have some “Maan, Maryada, limits”?
He even says, “arey apko toh yeh bhi nahi pata woh Hindu hai ya Muslim”.
There is a proper way to say things, right?
He is keeping track of how many random messages he has receives on WhatsApp, but don’t we you know that this is exactly what women experiences every day as they receive hundreds of messages on social media?
Moreover, just for the record, in the past, this “veteran actor” has also made statements like, “The problem started when women started working, aurat ko aadmiyon se kandhe se kandha chalakr chalna hai, dikkat ayegi aise… When women first expressed a desire to act like men, everything else followed.
Anyway, for those who have asked about my thoughts regarding Mukesh Khanna’s statement from today, I can only say that solid legal action should be taken against his remarks but only for the way he has put his thoughts out. His intentions were different I guess. Maybe.
What are your views on it?
