IAS OFFICER, RITU BAFNA EXPRESSES INFINITE PAIN AGAINST SEXUAL HARASSMENT...
Usually, an Indian woman thinks ten times before coming out openly against sexual exploitation that is deeply set in our homes, society and workplaces. The women tend to keep it to themselves as long as they can bear it and find it pretty difficult to discuss this issue with family members and even with their husbands though they are believed to be supplementary to each other.
One can safely imagine how deeply Ritu has been disturbed and traumatized with her sexual harassment case and its subsequent battle that she had to write against her own being. Her statement, "I CAN ONLY PRAY THAT NO WOMAN IS BORN IN THIS COUNTRY" describes explicitly the highest intensity of pain and hatred she must have felt & developed speaking such abhorring words which in fact is against the existence of mankind, for it can not survive with out female counterpart. I agree with the fact that hers would not have been national news had she not used such words.
I was aghast to read that even a judge in the temple of justice denied her the right to privacy which is a fundamental right of every woman. Had she been in some other democratic country, barring a few where women are not respected, would she have been denied this right? I respect this woman immensely who is fighting to get justice not only for her but the entire fraternity.
READ HER POST THAT CRIES LOUDLY FOR DUE RESPECT FOR WOMEN & JUSTICE FOR WHAT SHE HAS GONE THROUGH...Hi everyone. I am posting this message to share my experience with judiciary on a sexual harassment case filed by me.
Santosh Chaubey, Aayogmitra of MP Human Rights Commission was sending me indecent messages last week. I had filed an FIR against him and criminal action is being pursued against him. He was immediately removed from his job, thanks to the swift action by my Collector, Shri Bharat Yadav.
Today, I went to give my statement to the Judicial Magistrate. While I was giving my statement, an advocate named Lalit Sharma was standing next, overhearing my statement, along with others in the court. I asked the judicial magistrate to ask others to leave as I was uncomfortable giving my statement in front of so many people. On saying this, Lalit Sharma started shouting at me, saying "how dare you suggest me to leave, I am an advocate here and you might be an officer in your office but not in the Court". I told him that the privacy I am demanding is not as an IAS officer but as a woman and laws provide me with that. He started arguing and eventually left.
Such is the state of affairs for women in this country. When I said to Judicial Magistrate that he should be careful of presence of other people when a woman is giving statement under sexual harassment case, he said that you are young and that's why demanding such things.
Idiots are lined up at every step and people are highly insensitive towards our sufferings. If you are born in this country, better prepare yourself for struggle at every step.
