“Why No Celebrity Raised Voice Now ?” Actress Questioned On The Pocso Arrests


Actress Kasthuri questioned why no celebrity raised voice on the recent POCSO arrests as they did for the PSBB issue. She who thanked police officers for arresting the faculties of schools such as Chettinad, Maharishi for harassing students, questioned why no minister or celebrities lauded the arrests. She also questioned why no media covered it like they did it for PSBB issue. Through her series of tweets, Kasthuri asked whether it is called rational thinking.

From singer cum MeToo activist Chiinmayi to “Bigil” producer Archana Kalpathi, several celebrities of Tamil film industry has raised voice against the teacher who misbehaved with the students of Padma Seshadri Bala Bhavan school that is located in Chennai. In fact, the series of tweets Chinmayi posted in her twitter timeline brought the matter into the light which helped the issue to reach wider. Along with influential politicians from the ruling party and public, Lakshmi Priya Chandramouli of “Karnan” fame, Actor/ Producer Nithin Sathya, Actress Kaniha and many other people who are related to the cinema industry raised voice against the accused.

Rajagopalan of PSBB got arrested under POSCO and other relevant acts for sexually harassing female students. The school management which reportedly failed to co-operate initially, suspended him. Many other accusations are being made against teachers and other school managements by the former students and current students. Followed by the arrest, many other complaints emerged against the faculties of various other schools in the state.

Mentioning the school names, actress Kasthuri who identifies herself as a political analyst, uploaded a series of tweets and asked why no celebrity is talking about the recent arrest that were made in other schools beside PSBB. “POCSO arrests were made in Chettinad, Maharishi and many other schools. Thanks to the police department for their immediate action. Why no minister or celebrities appreciated it ? Why no media made it public?” asked Kasthuri through her tweet.

“Those who demanded the ban of PSBB school are staying polite now, why ? Affection based on caste ? Money circulation or fear ? Or is it called rational thought ?” she further asked by writing “செட்டிநாடு பள்ளி, மகரிஷி, இன்னும் பல சென்னை பள்ளிகளில் தொடர் pocso கைதுகள். துரிதமாக நடவடிக்கை எடுத்த காவல்துறைக்கு நன்றி. ஏன் இதை எந்த அமைச்சரும் பிரபலமும் பாராட்டவில்லை, ஏன் எந்த மீடியாவும் பகிரங்கப்படுத்தவில்லை?? பத்ம சேஷாத்திரி பள்ளியை மூட வேண்டும் என்று கொக்கரித்த தலைவியும் சுபவீக்களும் dravidian stockகுகளும் இப்போது கள்ள மௌனம் காப்பது ஏன்? ஜாதி பாசமா பண பேரமா இல்லை பயமா? ஒருவேளை இதுதான் பகுத்தறிவா?” in her tweet.
