The singer who became an overnight sensation after crooning “Afreen Afreen” with noted singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan took to her Twitter handle and posted a long note where she mentioned, “I have been reading one question frequently ‘why wait so long before saying anything?’ and the answer to that is, It’s because rather than shame the perpetrator, society at large tends to shame the victim.
There is also immense social pressure to ‘not say anything’, and keep matters like this private because some people may immediately question the woman’s character, for their own defense, and drag women through courts and humiliate them, knowing fully well that it is impossible to prove cases of physical harassment, hence forcing some women to eventually have no option but to pull back their cases. This affects families, lives, careers, all of it. The Indian Express
