Director Farah Khan has hurt the sentiments of Chembur businessman Abdul Samad Khan with her comments on TV show Dus Ka Dum.

Farah, who appeared with actress Deepika Padukone on the show on August 1, reportedly said, “Mard kutte hote hain, lekin wafadar nahin hote.”

Angered by the comment, Abdul filed a complaint against Farah with the Social Service Branch on Tuesday.

Abdul, who owns a consultancy firm, said, “Farah should not have forgotten that she was on television. Such offensive language against men is unacceptable.

Our Constitution grants equal rights to both the sexes and she has no right to compare men with animals.”

When asked whether he wanted an apology, Abdul said, “We will take the legal route now. Strict action should be taken against her.”

Senior Inspector

R R Joshi of the Social Service branch said, “It is not a cognisable offence, but we will take necessary action only after taking a legal opinion.”

Anita Basu, producer, Dus Ka Dum refused to comment saying, “I just learnt of the complaint. I don’t know what he is talking about.”

Despite repeated attempts Farah couldn’t be reached. She did not reply to SMSes either.

Women not required to produce evidence

Posted by iluvshrutiverma on November 15, 2009

In keeping up with the sexist attitude of the country, the Delhi court has ruled that – Asking a girl for evidence is insulting her.

The basic principal on which the whole Indian society is based – Women never lie.

NEW DELHI: A Delhi court has said the testimony of a rape victim is “sufficient” enough to convict the accused and asking her to corroborate her

version by producing more witnesses will be insulting.
“The statement of the prosecutrix alone is sufficient and needs no corroboration. The conviction can be founded alone unless there are compelling reasons.
“In my opinion, it would be adding insult to tell a female that her story of woes would not be believed unless it is corroborated in material particulars in the case,” District and Sessions Judge P S Teji, quoting various judgements of the Supreme Court, said.
The court’s observation came while awarding rigorous life imprisonment to convict Raju, a resident of east Delhi for raping his five-year-old neighbour.
It trashed the plea of convict that he was implicated by the girl and her family members as no independent witness was examined against him by the prosecution.
“In the traditional non-permissive bounds of India, no girl or woman would falsely implicate somebody for ravishing her chastity by sacrificing and jeopardising her future prospects,” it said, lending credence to testimonies of the victim and her parents.
It also imposed a fine of Rs 10,000 on convict, who raped the minor on the night of May 31, 2006 after taking her to a secluded place.
