As #MeToo rages, it’s unfathomable how Kejriwal got away with ‘compromise kar lo’ comment to a victim who later committed suicide

She was a young AAP volunteer from Narela in Delhi. Her name was Soni. She killed herself in 2016.

According to her family, she had been worried and tense about constant sexual harassment by one Ramesh Bhardwaj, allegedly an AAP leader.

But the matter goes far deeper because Soni had taken up the matter of sexual harassment with no less than Kejriwal himself. His response? Here it is:

“Compromise”.

Really? Did that actually happen?

Absolutely. In fact, Aaj Tak even showed the chilling video where AAP worker Soni said that Kejriwal had asked her to ‘compromise’ (watch here from 9:55).

Here, Soni declares that she is in so much depression that she wishes to commit suicide.

Chilling words from Delhi CM Kejriwal: “Compromise kar lo.”

She didn’t compromise. She committed suicide instead. Possibly, the only people who ‘compromised’ were our collective of liberal journalists, thinkers and opinion makers.

This was the victim on video admitting that Delhi’s Chief Minister had told her to compromise with sexual harassment. The victim admitting on video that the constant sexual harassment and the insensitive response from AAP leadership, including Kejriwal himself, is driving her to commit suicide. And then, sadly, she went ahead and actually killed herself.

When I mentioned this incident on Twitter last evening, it seemed that few had heard of it before. Most people could not believe that such an incident had passed almost without comment in media, without any nationwide outrage. They demanded I provide links to prove my claims. They could not believe their eyes and ears when I did.

When such a sad thing happens, there is an urge to condemn anyone who makes it political and perhaps rightly so. But then, this is all political, is it not? Does anyone seriously believe that such an explosive allegation against a BJP Chief Minister would have been forgotten by the media? For what it’s worth, Prime Minister Modi is in the dock every single day for any tweet by any person that he is following on Twitter.

And here, Kejriwal waltzes in, supposedly tells a woman to “compromise” with sexual abuse. The victim goes into depression and commits suicide. The media forgets all about it.

We all know that this was only possible because Kejriwal is ‘secular.’

Of late, the #MeToo movement has ripped off the masks of a lot of people who were given to lecturing the rest of us about being progressive, liberal and modern. Behind that edgy, “woke” comedian who makes “Azaadi” look sexy is a predator who will send d*ck picks to minor girls over the internet. Behind that sour-faced anchor who poses as the voice of dissent is a monster who will corner a young intern in his car and start slobbering all over her face.

In other words, the  #MeToo movement has brought the establishment face to face with decades of its own crimes.

But what happens if the victim of sexual harassment is no longer alive? Worse, what happens when she has committed suicide? Does the crime that she suffered and the liberal moral giant who enabled it to get to go free of all blame?

Let us find out.
