NHRC notice to I&B Ministry, Telangana Govt over Telugu actress strip case

The commission took suo moto cognizance of media reports after actor Sri Reddy stripped in public to protest against sexual exploitation in Tollywood. The commission asked them to conduct a comprehensive investigation and file an affidavit with their findings. After her protest, MAA made a decision to ban Sri Reddy for her actions.

A high-level committee with adequate women members should probe complaints of sexual harassment raised by female artistes of Telugu film industry, women's joint action committee, an umbrella organisation of 10 women's rights outfits demanded. A statement issued by the NHRC said that the state government and the ministry have been to submit its reports within four weeks.

Following Sri Reddy's strip protest outside Movie Artists' Association (MAA) office on Saturday to highlight casting couch, the MAA while dismissing her allegations declared that she will not be given membership under any circumstances.

Therefore, it appears to be an attempt to muzzle the voice of the whistleblower both from the sides of MAA and the state authorities.

Young students learning outside the classroom
Her husband is also a teacher and he spends a similar amount for classroom supplies. "We work as a team, she concluded". On a quiet Monday at NISH, an afternoon class turned into a life or death situation for one teacher.

The commission is of the opinion that the "reported prohibitions imposed upon the actress", barring her from acting in films and stopping others from working with her, were a "violation of her right to livelihood and live a life with dignity". Telugu Film Chamber of Commerce, MAA and AP Film Federation should take measures to make work places free of sexual harassment, women's rights activists demanded. The State authorities are expected to intimate about the available/proposed mechanism to the deal with the subject. As laid down in the Act, "workplace" includes not only the government organisations/offices but also private ventures.

She also questioned the Telangana government and MAA on the absence of a Committee Against Sexual Harassment. With 20 members in the panel, 10 members will be from the film industry and rest will be from various other sections of the society including doctors, NGOs, lawyers and government officials. However, neither the government nor the MAA took her seriously.

Earlier this week, Sri Reddy was taken into police custody after she stripped in public and staged a protest in front of the Movie Artistes Association or MAA in Hyderabad, alleging that local artists were not being provided with opportunities in the industry.
