​Vinay Pathak Join Hands With India Against Abuse
Veteran actor Vinay Pathak join hands with “India Against Abuse” and urge people to sign the petition to stop online bullying and threats.
Recently, Mumbai-based stand-up comedian Agrima Joshua received rape and death threats after a controversy erupted over her jokes that allegedly insulted Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. A number of celebrities, social media influencers and fellow stand-up comedians strongly condemned the incident, extending their full support to Agrima.
Now, actors Sayani Gupta and Maanvi Gagroo and writer Nikhil Taneja have started a campaign in a bid to stop abuse and harassment of women online, India Against Abuse.
Actor Vinay Pathak just took to his social media profile and shared a video post. He captioned it, “We as equal member of society demand for a rape & death threat free internet. If you also feel that targeted abuse and harassment of women on social media needs to stop then please sign the petition.  @sayanigupta @kalkikanmani @ArtiRaghavan”
The celebs said that once the petition gets enough signatures they will send it to Twitter, Instagram and YouTube and even take it to National Commission for Women.
Vinya Pathak appeal to people to sign their petition that demands a safe space for women in all public forums and social media, and creates an environment where abusive trolling, rape threats, vulgar memes about us will not be tolerated.
Meanwhile on the work front, Vinay Pathak was last seen in ZEE5’s digital release Chintu Ka Birthday, a comedy drama film written and directed by Devanshu Kumar and Satyanshu Singh. The film tells the story of a 6 year old boy named Chintu, stuck in Iraq with his family during Saddam’s fall in April 2004.
