Mukesh Bhatt: “Women Are Exploitative”
Mukesh Bhatt in reference to false allegations said that even women are exploitative. Everyone has to be cautious about the wrong claims.
“I am not saying men have not been exploitative. They have been for centuries. But today’s woman is also not as simple as she pretends to be.”
Bhatt further added: “But just as there are good men and bad men, so also there are women who are exploitative and very cunning. Also blatantly shameless to offer themselves.”
Sexual Harassment at the workplace in India
Women’s rights activist and lawyer, Flavia Agnes said that despite laws requiring Indian companies to form internal committees to investigate sexual harassment at the workplace, very few of cases are reported to the police.
“Companies may have a committee or they may not have one. They may do an investigation or they may not do one. And they may or may not file a complaint. It could go wrong at every stage.”
