Article, Paragraph, Essay on “A Case of Molestation!” article for Class 10, Class 12, Graduation Classes and descriptive examination

A Case of Molestation!


He must be illiterate, rowdy, and a low level guy. Only such people can do these type of filthy and cheap things to a woman. They must be educated and trained about etiquettes on how to behave with a woman. I heard one of my colleagues saying to the other over a newspaper report that illustrated a molestation case.


Yes you are absolutely right! Such people must be provided with rehabilitation along with jail punishment. The other guy gave his consent to the latter’s proposition.


There are two distinct perspectives of this mentality: first, it is extremely unusual to expect a well educated, financially sound, tuxedo wearing and socially esteemed person to misbehave or abuse a woman. Because from literature to media, mostly a goon is represented as someone who wears flashy clothes, speaks in slangs, and seems to have no education or manners. Secondly, it is easy to point a finger on someone or something which lacks the power to retort back. I mean to say it’s always easy and safe to lob a stone on a rabbit than to a tiger.


But a recent instance, where a 39 year old man allegedly misbehaved and tried to molest a 17 year old girl, is quite an eye opener for those who think only poor and low standard, illiterate people can do such inhuman things. Actually, it’s not something which is scarcely present in day to day debates. In fact, it’s in the perception of the majority of the people in our country. People, generally feel that behaviour of an individual is essentially dependent on the social and financial strata that person comes from. This notion may be true upto some extent but it’s not compulsorily true always.


On 9th December, Bollywood actor Zaira Wasim alleged that a co-passenger who was seated behind her in the business class, misbehaved with her in a Vistara flight which was enroute to Mumbai from Delhi. She triggered the news by posting a video message on her Twitter account as soon as she landed at Mumbai airport. She accused the co-passenger of molestation and said that he didn’t only place his leg on her armchair but also rubbed his toe on her back and neck throughout the journey.


The entire country responded to her allegations and thousands of people including many celebrities across fields tweeted in her support. Police, too, took quick action and arrested the accused in no time. Since then, the whole incident has created two different streams, flowing towards two different directions. There is a section which is unconditionally backing the actor and demanding severe action against the implicated corporate executive.


On the other side, the other group, together with an eye witness who was also traveling in the same flight in the same class, is of the opinion that the accused is being blamed for a wrong thing which he hasn’t done. He further claimed that he didn’t see the acussed misbehaving with the Dangal and Secret Superstar actor. He stated that the senior executive fell fast asleep as soon as he took his seat and his only fault was that he placed his leg on the actor’s armchair.


The truth behind this much hyped incident will be unearthed soon but the hypothesis that an expensive suit wearing, upperclass, highly educated person cannot commit a low class deed has certainly got a major set back. Crime is crime, neither it was, nor it is and never it will be proportional to someone’s ethnic, social, political, or financial background.


We have to change our preconceived notions that women are vulnerable when a specific category of people are around and they are safe being surrounded by some other certain class of people. Demeanor of a person is determined by his or her personal nature, instinct and present state of mind. Making generalizations between felony and criminal’s religious, social or financial credentials is an offence too.


I must conclude my point of view by furnishing a famous quote of an American journalist Monica Crowley, in which she said, “True equality means holding everyone accountable in the same way, regardless of race, gender, faith, ethnicity- or political ideology.”
