Amitabh Bachchan urges people to start respecting women

Bollywood’s superstar Amitabh Bachchan has asked people to start respecting women and treat them right. He made an appeal to the people to show them the required dignity.

“Stop this disrespect! Measure the presence of women in our existence with required dignity! Protect them that fall unfortunate victims to savage inhuman intent and stand tough against them who raise their hands to defile them,” the 70-year-old posted on his blog srbachchan.tumblr.com.

“Despite great awareness ideals that have taken space and demonstration among the society, the atrocities continue with abandon. Great introspection needs to be done to fathom the reason and the continuous disregard for all that should be looked upon as an evil.

“I will not agree with the reasoning that such incidents happen all over the world or whether the statistics favour another region or not. I am interested in why it is happening at all,” Amitabh Bachchan further added.

International Women’s Day falls on Friday, this week and Big B is supporting Breakthrough’s latest campaign. The campaign calls on men and boys to take a stand against domestic violence.

“8 March, I will be doing my bit to make the world a safer place for women. What’s your promise? Ring the bell,” he posted.

“Supporting Breakthrough’s latest campaign. Will ring the bell for a world where women feel safe, free, and secure. One million men make one million promises to end violence against women this year. What’s yours? There is a cause that needs support. There is a call that needs attention. And there is a heart that needs to be heard,” he further posted.

  1. What do you mean “start respecting women”, they SHOULD BE respecting women. OMG. People shouldn’t need to be told to do these things, it should come naturally.

    1. Unfortunately YES, some people have to be told. And the sad thing is, guess what, Indian again. Well done !! That’s another cross to our global reputation. I cannot agree more to what Naveed has written.

  2. Good for Mr. Bachchan. Mutual respect among all human beings is a small price to pay for a better life for everyone.

  3. I am with you all the way on this one. The whole Indian mentality towards women has to be
    changed. You just have to read some of the comments posted on the entertainment
    section in “The Times of India”. Instead of having a fair educated argument,
    so many idiots will respond and bad mouth others mums and sisters. Slagging each
    other’s religion, caste etc. That includes those Indians who are living abroad
    as well. They seem to carry the same way of thinking to whatever country they
    live. What is it with Indian people? Those six Delhi monsters did not help
    either. I have often referred them as Indian peasants. Cannot think of anything
    better suited. Honestly…………
