The country which is known to create great warriors from the time of Mahabharata cries to see its men now. The country which was a home to Mahatma Gandhi known for not mincing his words but finding justice through ahimsa wonders when did today’s men stoop so low that sexual abuses and slut shaming became the go-to weapon against opinionated women.

We are aware of the controversy surrounding Suchitra Krishnamoorthi and her tweet against loudspeakers causing inconvenience during Azaan. She has been receiving sexually lewd and violent messages on Twitter. The actor shared these tweets to highlight the hypocrisy of the so-called protectors of religion who indulge in the cyber attack.

 

Her ex-husband, director Shekhar Kapur, expressed his utter displeasure at the events unfolding.

 

Shekhar Kapur has tweeted a warning to Twitter India. He has clearly stated that Twitter’s passiveness against the sexually abusive comments on the micro blogging site will make their days numbered in the country.

In light of increasing rape cases in India, it is important that we identify what propagates this culture. For now, social media platforms seem to be a safe haven/breeding grounds for these ideologies. People largely agreed with Shekar’s words as every now and then we find such sexually regressive and abusive comments posted against women.

To be able to simply express yourself on Twitter is becoming difficult with each passing day. The rampant slut shaming on social media platforms has also come to light. Lack of any disciplinary actions from these social media sites only provides a safe zone to trouble makers.
