#MeToo movement launched by people with 'perverted' mindset, says Union Minister
The Modi government was facing flak from the opposition parties after columnist Priya Ramani and several other women journalists accused MJ Akbar of sexual misconduct. during the ongoing #MeToo movement.
Noting that the 'MeToo' movement had sullied the image of the country and women, he wondered if it would be right for men to start "making similar accusations like them". "That will be such a big insult....Will it be acceptable?" Radhakrishnan said.
The Modi government was facing flak from the opposition parties after columnist Priya Ramani and several other women journalists accused MJ Akbar of sexual misconduct.
Many journalists from multiple media platforms have come forward with their stories of harassment against MJ Akbar under the social media campaign '#Metoo' against sexual misconduct. Akbar, however, has denied the allegations and on Monday filed a private criminal defamation complaint against Priya Ramani, one of the accusers.
Priya Ramani was the first to come out against Akbar. It was followed by the accounts of travails undergone by other women journalists, including Ghazala Wahab who accused him of molestation. Several celebrities including actors Nana Patekar, Alok Nath, filmmaker Subhash Ghai, author Chetan Bhagat, singer Kailash Kher and Tamil lyricist Vairamuthu are among the few who have been called out by their alleged victims.
