A top RSS functionary Thursday appeared to support the #MeToo movement currently sweeping the country's landscape.
Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Joint General Secretary Dattatreya Hosabale expressed his opinion on the #MeToo movement by sharing a Facebook post of Ankhi Das, Public Policy Director of the social networking site, on his Twitter account.
Das in her post had said,"You needn't have a #MeToo moment to support the woman journalists who have narrated their victimisation. You needn't even be a woman. You just need to have a sensibility of what is right and what is wrong."
Hosabale tweeted her post and said, "I liked it. She has articulated what I was feeling."
His remarks come at a time when serious allegations of sexual harassment are levelled against BJP leader and Union minister M J Akbar.
Akbar, who is on a trip abroad, has not made any remarks or given any statement on the charges against him.
Hosabale's tweet is not surprising for Sangh observers and insiders as he is a seen as a moderate face of the safrron organisation.
On the issue of homosexuality too, he had said that it should not be considered a criminal offence.
