‘Be sure about allegations so it doesn’t dilute movement’: Nandita Das on father being named in #MeToo

Nandita Das, filmmaker and the daughter of painter Jatin Das has come up with a Facebook post pertaining to the allegations of sexual harassment made against her father. Noted Conservationist Nisha Bora had accused Jatin Das of grabbing her and forcefully kissing her during a dinner in 2004.

When the allegations surfaced, many questioned the silence of Nandita Das, who had earlier issued a statement to take a firm stand against sexual harassment and not to work with those people who are accused of sexual misconduct against women. Finally, Nandita Das has issued a statement on her father being accused of sexual harassment.

Nandita Das, in her Facebook post, has said that she supports the #MeToo movement and that her father has denied all the allegations of sexual misconduct against him. She said that one should be sure about these allegations to make sure that the ‘movement’ is not diluted. Nandita Das, in her statement, stays clear from criticizing her father for his sexual conduct but instead stands by him terming it as ‘allegations just to dilute the movement’.

Social Media users reacted to her post and called out the hypocrisy of the left-leaning filmmaker Nandita Das. Some people questioned the hypocrisy of this self-proclaimed feminist for supporting her father rather than shaming him in public like she has done for many other people named.

Others questioned the inconsistency of Nandita Das in dealing with this critical issue as she has now stood with her father rather than supporting the victim.

We had earlier reported about regarding the similar incident involving Mallika Dua, a stand-up comedian who not only stood by her father, journalist Vinod Dua but also abused the people who demanded answers from her father regarding the accusations of his sexual misconduct.

The ‘MeToo Movement’ has gripped the country with startling revelations coming from across the spectrum involving stand up comedy, journalism, cinema, politics. People like Alok NathRajat KapoorVarun Grover and comedians like Tanmay Bhat and Gursimran Khamba, co-founders of All India Bakchod are all being accused of sexual misconduct. The notable filmmaker like Vikas Bahl, Sajid Khan and Journalists like Vinod Dua and Sidharth Bhatia of The Wire, Prashant Jha of the Hindustan Times have all been accused of sexual harassment in the past by few women.
