India uproar over Salman Khan ‘raped woman’ comment

Bollywood star Salman Khan has been given a week to apologise after he told reporters his filming schedule was so gruelling he felt like a “raped woman”. If not, the National Commission for Women (NCW) said he would be issued with a summons.

Khan had immediately realised his gaffe and retracted, but many media outlets carried only the “raped woman” comment. Outraged Twitter users have lambasted him, and the hashtag #InsensitiveSalman was trending on Tuesday.

A counter campaign is trending #Salmanmisquoted. The brutal gang rape and murder of a student in 2012 in the Indian capital Delhi led to protests and new anti-rape laws in the country.

However, sexual attacks against women and children continue to be reported. Khan is playing a boxer in his next film Sultan.

Khan’s full quote, according to audio recordings released by the media was, “When I used to walk out of that ring, it used to be actually like a raped woman walking out”.

As journalists start laughing, he says, “I don’t think I should have” and tries to explain that he found it hard to walk. But many Twitter users pointed out that regardless of his hasty retraction, he should never have made the comparison in the first place.BBC
