Times don’t erase crimes, I believe Tanushree Dutta; Frieda Pinto

Entire Bollywood was on shock when Tanushree Dutta opened up about the sexual harassment towards her. Freida Pinto come in support of Tanushree Dutta.
“Today, I interrupt my feed for a bit from all the fashion week poses to stand by what I truly believe. I believe Tanushree Dutta,” read the opening lines of actress Freida Pinto’s powerful post on the controversy that has raged through the film industry this last few eventful days. Ms. Dutta has accused Nana Patekar of harassing and threatening her on a film set 10 years ago, and Freida Pinto’s is the latest voice of support for her. In her lengthy Instagram post, Freida wrote, “I don’t need to know her personally, neither have been present on that horrendous day she got bullied, abused both sexually and psychologically, intimidated and shut down in order to corroborate her story. However, I do know what truth, hurt and abuse sounds like.”
The Love Sonia star drew a parallel with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused US President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when she was a teenager. Dr. Ford’s televised testimony to the US Senate triggered not only a nationwide outpouring of emotion but also prompted Republican Senator Jeff Flake to set in motion an FBI investigation into Judge Kavanaugh’s alleged conduct.

“The same way millions of people in the world know that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford is NOT a Liar or an attention seeking, tantrum throwing overgrown child,” wrote Ms. Pinto.

Freida Pinto also underlined that time does not erase the crime. Many more years than 10 have passed since Brett Kavanaugh allegedly assaulted Dr Ford but, as Ms Pinto wrote, “If someone speaks up (in Tanushree’s case speaks up again) 10 years later, it doesn’t dilute or nullify a factual, verified truth. Her story is not a carton of milk that expires after a few days, ready to be discarded.”

“I add my voice to the other voices coming out in support of Tanushree’s bravery because God knows this is not going to be easy for you, Tanushree. But what you have done is monumental and important and it has to shake the very core of a nation and an ideology that for too long has gotten away with heinous crimes against women and where the ugliness of misogyny has dominated the rights and suppressed any voice that has dared to speak up,” Freida Pinto wrote.”Today, I interrupt my feed for a bit from all the fashion week poses to stand by what I truly believe.
