Malaika Arora Khan’s post on women safety will give you goosebumps

On Januray 1, 2017, while everyone across the country was celebrating the New Year, the women of metropolitan city, Bengaluru were subject to eve-teasing and mass molestation by men who found them to be inappropriately dressed.

While many condemned this act, our politicians played the tape from their old recorders that the women are to blame for the incident. According to SP leader, Abu Azmi, “Partying late night in half attire, blindly following western culture, has never been our culture. Ladies hailing from well-to-do families, be it from Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan or UP, they come out in decent attire and mostly with their family members.”


“But when few women in half dress come out on streets at late night with their friends, such incidents do occur,” said Azmi while speaking to ANI.

Reacting to the incident, actor Malaika Arora Khan put out a message on her Instagram account – a black photo to symbolize the darkness of the society we’re living in and question the very mentality of some people in the country. She said, "So, I went out with my girlfriends to party on the crowded streets of a Metropolitan city, they came out in large numbers and molested us...... But my safety is my responsibility so... The next time I went to a discotheque, it was enclosed and had bouncers, they came into the place and beat us up and ripped our clothes off.......But my safety is my responsibility so.... I went to a movie with a Male friend for company, they pushed me into a bus and shoved an iron rod inside my privates.......But my safety is my responsibility, so...... I went to my college, fully clad in a "decent"
salwaar kameez, they caught me around a corner and squeezed my bum......But my safety is my responsibility, so...... I decided to stay at home in the comfort of my own house, they broke down the door, tied me up and videotaped the things they made me do with them.......But my safety is my responsibility, so...... I went back to live with my family feeling safe and secure with them, they were my uncles but they didn't think of me as their niece when they made me take off my clothes and have their way with me.......But my safety is my responsibility, so.."


She concluded saying, "Disclaimer: Girls wearing short clothes and drinking and partying are copying the Western culture. Boys who molest them r copying the Indian culture???"

These days I sit in the bathroom, locked tight, not coming out at all. They stand on the terrace opposite to it peeking in through the bathroom window, but I don't take a bath.......because my safety is my responsibility....... Now, they have me exactly where they have always wanted me, my spirit broken, my ability to fight back gone, my will to do something destroyed.....at their mercy.....still stuck in the bathroom.....dreading the time when the knocking starts on the door as they come to get me here too. I am that Indian Woman who can excel at sports, win medals for the Country, join the Army, become a CEO, go to the outer space and be the talk of the world.....only if I can come out of this bathroom......But my safety is my responsibility, so....
