Hindustan Times, New Delhi
Actor Dileep, who has been accused of abducting a Malayalam actress, got bail on October 3 after spending 85 days in jail. A fan of his, who was ecstatic that his favourite star is out of jail, took to Facebook to post a message in Malayalam. The post is a threat to anyone who doesn’t support Dileep. The essence of the post, according to NewsMinute is, “The feminists who spoke against Ettan better know this. Kerala is yet to see the real ‘quotation’ (referring to contracting to commit crime). If Dileepettan really wants, you will be reduced into a sex clip on the phones of men.”
It was posted on a page called ‘Loser’s Media’, and the victim, who was abducted in February and was sexually assaulted, took a screenshot and sent it to her friend, Rima Kallingal. Rima then posted a long status about the post on her page and slammed it for being derogatory and sexist.
Rima’s status, which started off with #Nallavanoppam (With good men) is being shared on social media by people who have used #Avalkkoppam (With her) to show their support for the victim.
In her post, Rima wrote, “My friend , who was brutally attacked on February 17th , and who is seeing and listening to everything that is happening around her ever since, send me a screenshot of this FB post. (sic)”
She speaks about how one man’s post shouldn’t be the cause of women shaming men everywhere and how it is her duty to voice the fact that women should stand up with ‘real men’ and,in fact, save them.
She also pointed out the recent incident of actor Anna Rajan, who was trolled by Mammootty fans. She wrote, “Save them from the kind who make Lichi cry ‘on live’ and bring shame to Mammooty and all the real men out there. From the kind who Post a Facebook message like this and spread the message that Dileep indeed has given the quotation and is capable of much more, when he might actually just want to reflect on his life after 85 days in jail.”
Here is Rima Kallingal’s complete post |
My friend , who was brutally attacked on February 17th , and who is seeing and listening to everything that is happening around her ever since, send me a screenshot of this FB post.
I think I have a duty to tell her that all our men shouldn’t be shamed for the acts of a few and that we women should stand with the real men of this state.
And it is time we save them.
It is time we save our real men from the kind who spew expletives on a woman and make her take down a pulimurugan review and bring shame to Mohanlal and all the real men out there.
Save them from the kind who make Lichi cry ‘on live’ and bring shame to Mammooty and all the real men out there.
From the kind who Post a Facebook message like this and spread the message that Dileep indeed has given the quotation and is capable of much more, when he might actually just want to reflect on his life after 85 days in jail.
Save our real men and a younger generation from the belief that this is machoism and heroism. Save them from looking like idiots cos they are clubbed with these brainless dimwits.
We as a society need to tell my friend and the world that, 100 people who distribute sweets out side the jail and copy paste from fake profiles like cowards are not the real men of our society.
These are not the men we want to be friends with, fall in love with, spend our lives with, enjoy a drink with, celebrate with and trust with all our hearts.
Can the real men out there please stand up and take a bow
