After receiving the rape threats, Swati Maliwal, chief of the Delhi Women's Panel, has stated that film director and comedian Sajid Khan must be in jail rather than competing on the reality show Bigg Boss.
New Delhi: Swati Maliwal, chief of the Delhi Women’s Panel, has stated that film director and comedian Sajid Khan must be in jail rather than competing on the reality show Bigg Boss. Following a letter from the Delhi Commission for Women to Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur requesting his intervention and the removal of Sajid Khan from the most recent season of Bigg Boss, Maliwal made a complaint to the Delhi Police about rape threats made against her on social media prior to making her statement.
During the MeToo campaign in 2018, women accused Sajid Khan of sexual harassment. Why is this individual a contestant on Bigg Boss? Such individuals should be in prison. On Instagram, I received a rape threat, revealing that Sajid Khan will rape me after his Big Boss assignment. She has also registered a complaint with the Delhi Police as well.
The women’s panel chief said the entry of Sajid in Bigg Boss Season 16 was a clear attempt to “whitewash” his old image.
Several film bodies have come out in support of Sajid Khan. He got the nod from the Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE). The union has sent an epistle to the minister of information and broadcasting, Anurag Thakur. In the letter, FWICE said that Sajid has already served a ban of one year, which was lifted in March 2019.
He remained outside the film industry for a year. Sajid Khan had fully cooperated with the IFTDA and FWICE and followed the decision imposed by the POSH Committee.
