Mumbai: ‘Dil Diyan Gallan’ singer Neha Bhasin on Saturday opened up about being sexually abused.
She revealed in an interview with IANS that she was molested at the age of 10 on a visit to Haridwar.
“I was 10 years old. I was in Haridwar, one of the religious places in India. My mother was standing a few feet away from me. Suddenly, a guy came and poked his finger inside my ass. I was shocked. I just ran away. Then, a few years later, a man grabbed my breasts in a hall. I clearly remember these incidents. I used to think that it`s my fault. Now, people have come on social media and have started abusing others — mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually — there. I consider it faceless terrorism,” she said.
Neha also has been a victim of cyber bullying. Fans of K-pop band have given her death and rape threats because she mentioned that she wasn’t a big fan of that particular band.
The singer has now come up with a track “Kehnde Rehnde” aimed to highlight the issues of slut-shaming, sexism, cyber bullying and confining women to stereotypical standards of society.
