Post #MeToo, Anu Malik being reinstated as an Indian Idol judge by Sony TV has fumed all the row all over again. Soon after the promo by the channel was released, Sona Mohapatra, Neha Bhasin who accused Malik of sexually harassing them, came out in the open and slammed the makers for not taking a stand.

It was just a day before, when veteran singer Hema Sardesai came out in Anu Malik’s support when she said, “I mean it takes two hands to clap rite?” in a long social media post.

Soon after, Sona took to her Twitter and slammed the singer for her remarks as she wrote, “Somebody tell Ms Sardesai that yes, it takes two bodies to even get raped but that does not mean the person getting raped is to be blamed? Also, this is called victim shaming & it is the reason why minors, survivors & their families haven’t formally complained? Sick, Silly woman.”

Furtermore, it didn’t stop there. Mohapatra bashed Sony TV and Indian Idol makers for reinstating an individual accused of something so critical, and urged Smriti Irani to look into the scenario and help them.

Sona Mohaptra tweeted about the same as, “Dear India & Media, Dont you see what Anu Malik & his enablers, Sony TV are doing? Distracting us from the main issue?That of reinstating a multiple accused sexual predator on NationalTV & setting a dangerous example & giving a free pass for other such perverts. @smritiirani”

Meanwhile, reports also suggest that the channel is reconsidering their decision and may ask Anu to take a leave from the show. “Anu Malik may be shown the door in the next few weeks. They thought the backlash against him had quietly died down. They never anticipated this new rising roar of protest against his return to the show,” revealed a source close to Deccan Chronicle.
