Shiv Sena has taken a tough stand on the humiliation of women through social media apps. The Shiv Sena on Friday urged the central government to take strict action against the app that targets and insults women. In this regard, Priyanka Chaturvedi, Rajya Sabha member and spokesperson of Shiv Sena has also sent a letter to Union Information Technology Minister Ashwini Vaishnav.
In a letter to the Union Information Technology Minister, Priyanka Chaturvedi said that such an act cannot be tolerated. He said that a few months back the YouTube channel had live telecast of the auction of women of a particular community. On which ‘rating’ was given on physical beauty. Chaturvedi said derogatory comments were also uploaded.
Uploading photos without permission
Recently, in another app, photographs of several women, including journalists, were uploaded without their permission, the letter said. After this many of the victims had closed their social media accounts. Chaturvedi said that Delhi and Noida Police had registered cases in relation to both these incidents but due to lack of strict laws, the spirits of those who commit such acts are high.
