Model narrates her sexual harassment ordeal, Shashi Tharoor uses it to score political point

Indore based model claimed that she was sexually harassed and molested last night and narrated her ordeal on micro-blogging site Twitter.

She states how humiliating the experience was and that it took her a while to gather some composure.

She then said how so many others also face sexual harassment on streets and decided to bring a logical end to her ordeal by filing an FIR. Just after her fall, she went live on photosharing app, Instagram to narrate her ordeal. However, as per police, they tried to contact her but she has not yet approached the authorities to file an official complaint.

While Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan assured her of support and speedy justice.

Amidst all this, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor took this opportunity to score a political point by trying to imply that the harassment the girl faced had been sanctioned from ‘the top’.

Sexual harassment is a societal problem that not just the politicians, but the citizenry should fight together. It is humiliating for women as it is, without politicians using the woman’s ordeal to play vulture politics. This comment by Shashi Tharoor displays exactly what is wrong with the ‘fight against sexual harassment’ and the ‘fight for women’s dignity’. Today, this social evil perhaps isn’t viewed as a menace that needs to be fought, but every case is viewed as a political tool to beat the political opposition with.

Shashi Tharoor twisted a case of sexual harassment in order to somehow blame Prime Minister Narendra Modi by saying ‘it was sanctioned from the top’. This irrational gibberish is unfortunate what the political discourse has stooped to.
