Swara Bhaskar expresses concern over safety of women in India

BOLLYWOOD actress said, “Women’s safety has become a crisis in India. We have a situation where at least three high profile members, who hold elected office are accused of rape.”

“The rape victims have had to face serious personal consequences for reporting rape. This is an alarming situation for our entire society. We need our lawmakers to walk the talk with regards to women’s safety,” she continued.

Swara said, “I tweeted regarding the same and one user/ troll made fun of the victim’s ordeal by asking if I was raped as well, with a smile at the end of the sentence. I reacted by using an expletive because I feel that sometimes people who use abusive language by cracking rape jokes need to be reminded that women can swear as well.”
