Lack of comprehension skills or deliberate misquoting? Swara Bhaskar plays victim card

Swara Bhaskar, actor and daughter of JNU professor for cinema studies and former Censor Board member, Ira Bhaskar, today displayed her lack of comprehension skills on Twitter. In response to her rant, film director Vivek Agnihotri, in a series of tweets, asked Bhaskar to visit naxal-infested areas like Bastar, where women are regularly raped and abused.

But then, when someone points out the hypocrisy, the victim card, which is always on standby mode, comes out pronto. Swara immediately interpreted the above suggestion of visiting Bastar to interact with survivors of abuse as ‘getting raped’.

It takes severe lack of comprehension skills to interpret going to Bastar to know more about rape victims as ‘go get yourself raped’. But soon enough, the ecosystem came to her rescue. Suddenly, the narrative shifted to how industry people, her peers, are slut-shaming her and issuing veiled rape threats.

And of course, how can a man have an opinion which goes against self appointed patron saints of feminism?

However, if you read closely, Agnihotri does not give her veiled rape threats nor does he slut shame her. All he’s asked is to go meet the abuse victims to get some idea of how it feels to live with life beyond rape. But how can the so-called liberals ever be wrong? Some Twitter users tried to help Swara to comprehend Agnihotri’s tweet.

But why let facts come in the way of a narrative?
