A few months ago, Rhea Chakraborty was arrested, harassed, humiliated and imprisoned for her “Alleged” participation in the suicide of a Bollywood actor, Sushant Singh Rajput.
With no proof or anything whatsoever to tie her to the “Alleged murder”, she faced the unchanneled atrocities of almost every single person in the nation.
One person cried at the top of his voice, every single day for months. His name: Arnab Goswami.
Now, when he is suspected of having played a role in the suicide of Anvay Naik, the entire nation is supporting him with everything they have.
When Rhea Chakraborty was being held for unproven crime, everyone was absolutely convinced that she was a murderer.
Now, with Goswami being in the same situation, the entire country seems to have turned on its head.
The people who were determined to send Rhea Chakraborty to prison and even throw stones at her, are now sitting on the streets, protesting Goswami’s arrest.
Same situation. Different reaction.
What’s even more interesting is, a news broadcaster was being arrested for his alleged role in a person’s death and the Home Minister of the nation lost his sleep.
Why is an idiotic news broadcaster who does nothing except shouting at the top of his voice, so important that Home Minister of the largest “Democracy” in the world is so adamant and determined to get him out of the thick soup?
None of them really came forward to support Rhea Chakraborty when she was being harassed by almost every person on the streets.
Do we treat people charged with same crimes differently based on their gender? Or is it just because of the influence or contacts they have in the BJP Government?
I had been under this impression that everyone is equal before the law.
I suppose I was wrong. Apparently, being a supporter of a certain political party plays a huge role in changing your appearance in the ‘Court of Law’.
