Thiruvananthapuram: A group of women, including dubbing artiste Bhagyalakshmi and activists Diya Sana and Sreelaksmi Arackal, made a man to apologise, after he made derogatory comments about women on social media. The group of women reached Vijay P Nair’s house and poured charcoal oil over him as protest against his comments.
In the YouTube video uploaded by Vijay P Nair, he made derogatory coments against the dubbing artistes in Malayalam film industry and feminists in the state.
In the end, he apologized to the women of Kerala. He said that he apologises to women in Kerala if he hurt them intentionally or unintentionally.
The women also deleted the YouTube videos in which he made the comments.
The video of him apologising was released via Facebook by Sreelakshmi Arackal and Diya Sana.
After making him apologise, the women went to Thampanoor police station and filed a complaint against him.
Bhagyalakshmi told mathrubhumi.com that they were forced to take things into their own hands as there was no action taken by the legal system in Kerala, despite numerous complaints.
"It was Sreelakshmi Arackal who reacted against him first. But we decided to react when we realized that no action was being taken on the complaint. There will be comments that we should have moved legally. But let me ask you, what happened to the complaint that was filed?" Bhagyalakshmi asked.
Bhagyalakshmi added that Vijay P Nair has been humiliating the women in Kerala for a long time now. Recently he uploaded a video about why the feminists in Kerala do not wear underwear and it was circulated widely on the internet. He even made derogatory comments about the first chairperson of Women’s Commission, Sugathakumari, she said.
