Actor Anushka Sharma has written a hard-hitting word on Instagram, amid the continued protests towards the latest Hathras gang-rape. The actor wrote that ‘in our society, having a male child is viewed as a privilege’.
Calling this notion a ‘myopic vision’, Anushka wrote, “Of course, it’s no more privilege than having a girl child but the fact is that this so-called privilege has been viewed incorrectly and with an extremely myopic view. The only ‘privilege’ is that one has the opportunity to raise a boy in a way that he respects a girl. That’s your DUTY as a parent to society. So, don’t think of it as a PRIVILEGE.”
She added, “The gender of the child doesn’t make you privileged but it is actually the responsibility you owe to society to raise a boy so well that women feel safe and protected.”
On Thursday, the actor had expressed her shock on the rape in Uttar Pradesh’s Balrampur, which got here virtually instantly after the Hathras incident. On Instagram, she posted, “Barely any time has passed and we are hearing of another brutal rape!?! In which world do such monsters think they can do this to a young life.”
