Social media has been a boon for all of us, but one of the uglier sides of it is when people use it to harass others. We see a lot of people who suffer from online harassment. While many a victim chooses to remain silent, calling out harassers is usually a better idea than suffering in silence.
It’s so widespread that even President Pranab Mukherjee’s daughter faced such harassment. Sharmistha Mukherjee didn’t take this lightly and decided to publicly bash this guy. Evidently, she was very furious in her Facebook post:
“This pervert Partha Mandal is sending me dirty sexual messages. My 1st reaction was to ignore & block him. But then I thought the silence wud encourage him to find other victims. Just blocking & reporting is not enough. I strongly feel such ppl shd be publicly exposed & humiliated. I’m posting screenshots of his profile & messages he sent me. I’m also tagging him. Pls share this post & tag this rat as a msg that these pervert acts will not be taken lightly.”
