The Internet has certainly helped mankind to level up their lifestyle but as we know that every coin has two sides. In the same way, many people use the internet in a negative way and indulge in heinous cyber crimes.
The latest victim of cyber crime is none other than Kamal Hassan’s youngest daughter Akshara Hassan. Akshara’s private photos were leaked online and it has created a stir on social media.
Akshara took to her social media handle to address the issue, she said: “It’s particularly disturbing and deeply upsetting to see that at a time when the nation has woken up to the #metoo movement, there are still people out there who would harass and attempt to share private pictures of a young girl in the public eye only to derive some perverse pleasure that appeals only to them.”
She also said: “Recently, some of my private pictures were leaked on the Internet. Who did this or why is not known to me yet. But what I do know that it is deeply unfortunate to make a young girl the victim of such an act only for a pervert mind’s enjoyment. And each time someone shares it with eye-catching headlines to draw more traction, it scars me deeper and adds to everyone’s participation in my harassment and helplessness.”
Meanwhile Akshara has approached Mumbai police and she hopes that justice will be served, she said: “I have reached out to the mumbaipolice and the cybercell to seek their help in tracking the person/s responsible for this leak and hope to get to the bottom of this soon. Till then, I can only request that we all learn to live and let live with dignity and privacy and hope that the internet won’t continue actively participating in my harassment. #metoo.”
