A group of young women from New Delhi claimed that a middle-aged woman asked men at a restaurant to rape them because one of them was wearing a short skirt, following which they confronted her in a mall.
The confrontation was captured in a video which went viral on social media. It shows the group of girls cornering the older woman and threatening to make her “viral” if she did not apologise.
Shivani Gupta who recorded and shared the video, wrote on Facebook, “This middle-aged woman you’ll see in the video addressed seven men at the restaurant to rape us because she felt we deserved it for wearing short clothes and bashing her unsolicited opinion.”
The woman allegedly asked seven men at the resteraunt to “rape” the younger women because of their choice of clothes. Following this, the group of girls followed the woman to a shopping centre where they insisted that she apologise. An argument ensued and the younger women threatened to take the case to the police. However, according to Indian media, Gurgaon Police is yet to receive a complaint.
The middle-aged woman, whose identity has not yet been revealed, refuses to apologise and tries to walk away but the girls refuse to let her go.
After about eight minutes of being followed and taunted, the woman spoke up.
“Hello guys, these ladies want to wear short to short dress to encourage all to see them. Theek hai? Wow, very good. All the ladies wear short dress or be naked to (be) raped.”
She continued, “Hi all, if you are the parents, please control the girls.”
The girls in the video then started mocking the woman for her accent following which she lost her cool and started speaking loudly.
The video has been viewed over a million times and people have lauded the women for taking action against the shaming.
