MeToo campaign: Salman Khan's father Salim Khan on 'why so late?'


One of the criticisms that many have been levelled against the victims of sexual harassment under the MeToo campaign is that they have taken too long to come out in the open about their ordeal. Many questioned why they did not raise their voice at the time of being victimised.
But, Salman Khan’s father Salim Khan has an apt reply to those cynics.
In a social media post, Salim Khan, himself a screenplay writer of repute, said that it was ‘better late than never.’ Khan wrote, “The only defence they have is “Why so late ?” It is better late than never. You don’t have to wait for the result, you have already won great public support. Aadmi pahad se gir kar khadda ho sakta hai…apni nazron se girkar nahin.”

Salim Khan found plenty of support among his fans, who appeared to agree with his argument. India’s own MeToo movement has rocked the Indian film industry with many prominent names including Alok Nath, Rajat Kapoor, Nana Patekar, Vivek Agnihotri, Kailash Kher and Sajid Khan being outed as alleged predators.
On Monday, Salman’s ex Somy Ali had opened up on her own past experience stating she was sexually abused at the age of five and raped when she was 14.
