NEW DELHI: Actor Richa Chadha took to social media on Friday and called for the arrest of a group of boys who were caught on camera harassing a girl. According to a now-viral post, the group of boys allegedly harassed a Japanese girl on the occasion of Holi by forcefully applying color on her, smashing an egg on her head and spraying paint on her.

“For those who were against the #BHARATMATRIMONY Holi campaign. A Japanese tourist in India. Imagine your sister, mother or wife being treated like this in another county? Maybe you will understand then (sic)” read the tweet. Richa shared the video on Twitter and wrote, “Arrest these men.”

The video, released on March 6, also marked as International Women’s Day, shows the harassment faced by women on the occasion of Holi. These come after some people took offense to Bharat Matrimony’s latest commercial.

Several netizens were quick to point out the irony of such incidents which took place on International Women’s Day, which coincided with Holi celebrations this year. “All the Holi sexual harassment videos are so triggering and what’s even more triggering is the attitude of men. They don’t even consider it assault. They call this fun. How badly we have raised these men! How badly!” said one such user.

Earlier, a Bharat Matrimony advertisement on Holi and International Women’s Day courted controversy over religious sentiments. The advertisement shows a woman washing off the different colors from her face and once the colors start to fade, there appear bruises on her skin.

“Very disturbing videos getting viral on social media showing sexual harassment with foreign nationals on Holi! I am issuing notice to Delhi Police to examine these videos and arrest the perpetrators! Completely shameful behaviour!” she said.
Tweeting the 75-second clip on Twitter, the website originally wrote, “A lot of women have stopped playing Holi due to the trauma they experienced through harassment. Watch this video that brings this to life in a hard-hitting way. This Holi, let’s celebrate Women’s Day, and choose to keep them safe everyday. #BeChoosy #Holi #Holi2023 #WomensDay.”
