Former Union Minister MJ Akbar shocked in defamation case

Former Union Minister MJ Akbar has received a setback in the defamation case. The court has dismissed his criminal defamation petition. Priya Ramani was not convicted by the court of criminal defamation. Let me tell you that during the Meetoo campaign in 2018, journalist Priya Ramani had accused the former Union Minister of State for MJ Akbar of exploitation. A defamation suit was filed by the former Union Minister in this matter.

During the judgment, the court said that it cannot be ignored that sexual harassment is often behind closed doors. The court took cognizance that there is a lack of mechanism to make complaints of sexual exploitation. Most women who are victims of exploitation are often unable to raise their voice due to stigma and fear of over-characterization.
