No woman should be subjected to misbehaviour, corrective measures must be taken: Big B

No woman should be subjected to misbehaviour, corrective measures must be taken: Big B

New Delhi, Oct 11 (UNI) Breaking his silence on the issue of sexual harrassment of women at the workplace, Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan , on Thursday called for stringent measures to make workplaces safer for women.

Tweeting an interview transcript on Thursday, the Big B , talking about the women safety in workplaces and increasing reports of sexual harassment, said,'no woman should ever be subjected to any kind of misbehaviour, or disorderly conduct ; especially at her work place. Such acts should immediately be brought to the notice of concerned authorities, and corrective measures be taken, either through filing complaints or a recourse to law. Discipline and civic, social and moral curriculums, should be adopted at a very early educational level.'

'Women children and the weaker sections of our society are the most vulnerable. They need to be under special protective care. It has been most heartening to see women representations in most work vocations, on the increase in our country. It would be an unrepairable blemish if we are not able to provide them the welcome they deserve and the dignity of the security of their presence,' he added.

Mr Bachchan was widely criticised for dodging a question on the Tanushree Dutta-Nana Patekar controversy two weeks ago during the trailer launch of his upcoming movie 'Thugs Of Hindostan'.

Amitabh had responded to a question on Tanushree Dutta's allegations of harassment by Nana Patekar by saying, "Neither is my name Tanushree nor is it Nana Patekar so how can I answer your question?"
