‘Satyamev Jayate’ played major role in Child Sex Abuse Bill:


Mumbai: Aamir Khan’s ‘Satyamev Jayate’ has indeed been instrumental in raising awareness among people about the glitches in the Indian society and has subsequently led many duty bound officials taking stringent actions to deal with social malice. 


Whether or not ‘Satyamev Jayate’ triggered the passing of the Protection of Children against Sexual Offences Bill by the Lok Sabha on Tuesday is highly debatable. But it does come as a relief to the thousands of victims of child sex abuse.


One such victim is Harish Iyer, who had made an appearance on the show and spoken about his traumatic childhood in front of live audience.


Iyer took to Twitter to express his excitement. He wrote, “#CHILDSEXUALABUSE bill passed in loksabha. cant contain my emotions(sic).”


Acknowledging the effort of everyone who has been responsible for raising an alarm for the Bill, Iyer wrote, “#CSAbill It is the collective effort of everybody, all media, society, you and me. While @smjindia does play a major role(sic).”


“#CSAbill has been passed and will be a law soon(sic),” he added.


Iyer also shared his take on the Bill with Sanjay Suri and Onir, who had made a film based on his life and wrote, “@sanjaysuri @iamonir THE #CSAbill has been passed. this doesnt mean NO MORE ABHIMANYU`s it def means that abusers would be dealt with(sic).”


“#CSAbill punishes the offender and the just implementation will ensure that the victim is not further victimized(sic),” he tweeted.


However, he does believe that it is up to the people to fight for their rights. He wrote, “I know many bills have been passed. And many laws have been unimplimented. Its upon us now to ensure that the law is implemented. #CSAbill(sic).”
