Charges against Minister M.J. Akbar in #MeToo Movement, Senior Sushma Swaraj ducks question

Union Minister & former editor MJ Akbar has been charged for ‘Sexual Harassment’ in the snowballing #MeToo movement in India while his and the Union Foreign Minister, Sushma Swaraj did not respond when she was asked about any action against the Minister.

When Tribune reporter Smita Sharma questioned Ms Swaraj,”There are serious allegations…these are sexual harassment allegations. You are a woman minister in charge. Will there be a probe on the allegations?”, the Minister walked past without a word.

MJ Akbar is believed to be in Nigeria.

A Veteran Journalist & Junior Foreign Minister, MJ Akbar was named in a tweet by Journalist Priya Ramani, who had first shared her account a year ago when the #MeToo campaign exploded in the US with the Harvey Weinstein Scandal.

Several tweets had talked about “the editor who helmed a unputdownable newspaper” & similar hints before the name was put out in the Public Domain.

Priya Ramani named him as the editor she had written about in a Magazine Article in October last year.

Priya Ramani had not named MJ Akbar when she wrote in the Vogue India article – addressed to “Dear Male Boss” – about her experience after she was invited by him to a plush Mumbai hotel for an interview. He allegedly called her to his room, offered her a drink & asked her to sit close to him.

“We’ll get you all one day,” was Ms Ramani’s parting shot in the article titled “To the Harvey Weinsteins of the world”.

Harvey Weinstein, an Oscar-winning film producer, has been accused by multiple women of sexual harassment and assault.
