Bigg Boss controversy : Backlash for demanding the removal of #MeToo accused Sajid Khan from reality show


Swati Maliwal, the head of the Delhi Commission for Women, said on Wednesday that she has received rape threats on social media after writing to Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur demanding that filmmaker Sajid Khan be removed from Bigg Boss due to allegations of sexual harassment against him.

She also requested that the people who allegedly threatened her with rape be arrested.

“Ten women had accused Sajid Khan of sexual harassment during the #MeToo movement. All these complaints show the disgusting mentality of Sajid. Now, this man has been given a place in Bigg Boss, which is wrong. I have written to @ianuragthakur to have Sajid Khan removed from this show,” she tweeted.

“Ever since I wrote a letter to the I&B minister to get #Sajid Khan out of Bigg Boss, I have been receiving rape threats on Instagram. Obviously, they want to stop our work. I am giving a complaint to Delhi Police. Register FIR and investigate. Arrest those who are behind them,” read another tweet.

Sajid Khan’s participation in the new season of Bigg Boss 16, which premiered on October 1, has sparked widespread outrage.

Sajid was embroiled in the #MeToo movement in 2018 after nine women in the industry accused Khan of sexually harassing them while working on his various projects. Saloni Chopra, Sherlyn Chopra, Aahana Kumra, and Mandana Karimi, among others, are said to have levelled the allegations against him.
