New Delhi: The #MeToo campaign that started against social media on social media has taken hold. After Bollywood, its flaws have reached politics too.
In the latest case, the name of Modi government minister MJ Akbar has come out. Former editor and Minister of State for External Affairs MJ Akbar is accused of sexual abuse. When asked about this, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj did not respond.
When Smita Sharma, journalist of ‘Tribune’, asked Sushma Swaraj if she would take any action against MJ Akbar, they did not respond.
Smita Sharma had asked Sushma Swaraj, ‘It is a serious charge. You are a woman, what charges will be examined? Instead of responding to it, Sushma Swaraj went ahead without saying anything. It is believed that Minister of State for External Affairs MJ Akbar is in Nigeria these days.
MJ Akbar has been named by journalist Priya Ramani. Priya wrote that she had written a memorandum of sexual exploitation with her in ‘Vogue’ magazine last year and the story started with MJ Akbar incident. Priya then did not take MJ Akbar’s name, but, writing the name of MJ Akbar while sharing the link to the story of 2017.
Said that this story begins with MJ Akbar. Priya has written that she was a part of that night. Never again went into the room alone with him. Priya Ramani has tweeted one after another. MJ Akbar has been an editor in several newspapers and magazines.
The #MeTo campaign is important but what does it mean to make a person guilty of sexual abuse after 10 years? After so many years, how will the truth of such a matter be investigated? It is a matter of thought that the person who will be accused of being false, will be a big helpless person.
On the other hand, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Udit Raj has made a startling opinion in this matter. They have raised questions about this campaigning.
They have termed the charges under the campaign as the beginning of the wrong practice. According to the MP, how long it will be to investigate his truthfulness after accusing him for a long time. False accusations can damage the image of anybody.
BJP MP Uditraj tweeted, “#MeToo Campaign is important, but what does it mean to make a person guilty of sexual abuse after 10 years? After many years how will the truth of such a matter be investigated? It is a matter of thinking of the loss of the image of a person who will be falsely charged. Wrong practice is the beginning.
