Singer Neha Vasin has been sexually harassed many times so far in songs like ‘Jag Ghomaya’ in ‘Sultan’, ‘Dil Diya Galan’ in ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ and ‘Chasani’ in ‘Bharat’. He was talking about his personal life in an interview. According to him, at the age of 10, he was molested by a stranger in Haridwar.
‘I ran away from this, surprised’
In an interview with IANS, 3-year-old Neha said: I was 10 years old then. My mother was standing away from me at Haridwar, one of the religious places in the country. Suddenly a man came and put a wrong finger behind me. I ran away in surprise.
‘Even a dirty performance in a hall’
Neha continues- A few years later a guy put a wrong hand in a hall on my chest. I remember these events clearly. I thought it was my fault. Now people come to social media and start harassing others emotionally, physically, mentally and religiously. I consider it as faceless terrorism.
‘Rape threat found on social media’
Neha recalled cyber bullets that K-Pop band rapists and deadly fans once threatened her. He says- It started when I supported another singer’s point of view.
I didn’t comment on the K-Pop band. Just saying that I am not a fan of this perticular band. I was then trolled. I was raped and threatened with death. I’ve seen it all. I don’t keep quiet anymore. I am also complaining to the police.
The events were inspired to create songs
Neha believes that such incidents inspired her to create the song ‘Kahande Rahende’, which is against cyber threats. The track aims to highlight slavery, shame, sexuality, cyber bullying and the stereotyping of society towards women. Neha says- No one should tolerate mistakes. You should raise your voice against injustice.
