Actor Mukesh Khanna has been criticized by internet citizens for saying the MeToo movement started after women started working.
The social movement against sexual abuse and harassment rose to prominence in India in 2018 when actress Tanushree Dutta accused Nana Patekar of sexual harassment. Since then, several women in the Hindi film industry have named and shamed alleged perpetrators.
Speaking of the movement in a video that has gone viral on Twitter, Mukesh says: “Aurat ka kaam hai ghar sambhalna (A woman’s job is to take care of the house). Problem kahaan se shuru hue hai #MeToo ki jab auraton ne bhi kaam karna shuru kar diya (The #MeToo problem started when women started to work.) Aaj aurat mard ke saath kandhey se kandha milane ke baat karti hai (Today women are talking shoulder to shoulder with men). “
The actor’s comment, best known for playing the desi superhero Shaktimaan on the small screen, has infuriated many internet users.
“And that stupid shaktimaan added value to society, wasn’t it? Wonder what kind of family he grew up in. Someone asks him why children as young as 5-6 are raped? Why even give a stage to these weak people who afraid of? Ladies? ” wrote one on Twitter.
“The mindset of this people cannot be changed. He has acted in such a mythological drama, but he has learned nothing. He has no right to pray a goddess. People with this kind of mentality insult women, but pray. goddess: any feeling? ”asked another.
Another wrote, “Never heard of such a disgusting misogynistic and patriarchal comment. Lost all respect for you.”
“Such a misogynist … The problem is your mentality. #MeToo #metooindia problem arises because people like you exist in our society. Certainly no respect,” wrote another.
