With the outset of the recent #Metoo movement across various parts of the world, we saw many women blaming their fellow men for sexually harassing them at their workplaces, in person or else. Well that was something which put the whole male fraternity in question and thousands of fake and fabricated sexual harassment cases were registered against men across various parts of the world. If we look at the recent report released by the delhi police, almost 78% of them have been found as fake and illicit.
Quite recently, one of the French expat was been alleged for sexual harassment charges by one of his colleagues in the office and after months of investigation, the charges were found fabricated. This made him kick-starting a new revolution for the interest of the whole male fraternity with the name #Mentoo. The movement found support from thousands of men and the women too. It was just day back when Indian actress Pooja bedi also showed his concern on the increasing sexual harassment incidents with men on the receiving end. It was few months back when actor Karan Oberoi was been arrested for his alleged involvement in a sexual harassment case.
Lately, it was found that the lady has put fake allegations against Karan Oberoi and this was the reason why he got acquitted form the same case by the high court. Also, the lady got arrested for her fake allegations which brought a lot of disrepute to the image of the renowned actor in the process. Well, this was not the first time when an incident of such degree has happened to someone and few months back, there was a senior executive from a multinational company, who committed suicide after being alleged for sexual harassment by two of his colleagues.
Later it was been found that the allegations were fabricated and the suspension by the management was done without any ground proof. This made everyone around really embarrassed with the same situation and most of them came forward to express their grief and anger in the same regards. Rahul Vaidya, renowned singer, quoted “This is really unfortunate that a guy has to end his life just to prove his innocence in the same case and being a man, I really feel ashamed of the prejudice, and this judiciary system is having against men.” Avinash Pandey, CEO of ABP News Network India, also voiced his opinion in the same context whilst saying, regards. He said, “Any complaint to the ICC (Internal Complaints Committee) if upheld, the organization should deal with the concerned offender very strictly and make an example out of him and simultaneously protect the dignity and the job prospect of the aggrieved female / male employee”.
