MeToo Victim Karan Oberoi Defends Madhur Mittal

Actor-singer Karan  Oberoi who  was embroiled  in  an ugly sexual harassment  case in 2019 where a woman accused him of  blackmail  among other things,  knows  the pain of being  wrongly accused. 

His heart reaches out to actor Madhur Mittal  who has been accused  of rape and  assault by his former  live-in girlfriend.

  Says Karan, “We need to go back to the basics of why two  people who  have always loved each other and just because they  can’t stay together for whatever reasons ,one of them  can’t be destroying the  other’s  life forever because things didn’t work out between them.They are now going to ridiculous lengths to settle scores.”

  Karan feels the urgent  need for  laws pertaining to gender  crimes  to be rectified. “The law seems to be turning a blind eye . And even women admit to the misuse of these lopsided laws by their own gender. This misuse of the law by one gender will only create fear dysfunctional relationships in the future, robbing the innocence and purity a relationship based on pure love ought to have.”

Perhaps getting a document signed before  physical intimacy  stating  it to be consensual  is the solution?

Karan avers, “Even that may not hold true in court saying it was coerced .We can’t be basing our interactions with the opposite gender on calculations and machinations. If a quick amendment is not created, it will ruin millions of lives and also create a fear psychosis in people who are  in relationships.”

    Karan  doesn’t want  to come across as a chronic  gender-defender. “ My only apprehension is that I don’t want to be one of those who are quick to jump to defending my gender .But when another man  goes through what I have,  I feel  his pain. I just hope and pray that the real truth prevails.”
