Actor and model Gauahar Khan addressed the media in Mumbai yesterday to speak about being attacked by a man “for wearing short skirts” on the sets of reality show India’s Raw Star.

Gauahar said that while she is not promoting any kind of dress code, no one had the right to hurt, torture or attack anybody.

An incensed Gauahar said, “Yes I was attacked, the physical aspect being a major part of it, but what that coward tried to do to me mentally was even more grave. He attacked my integrity and tried to camouflage his cowardice by his rubbish claims of wanting to send out a message of what he thought the youth of Indian needed today. Why doesn’t a loser like him have the fear of the law before he decides to attack a girl who is unarmed, unprepared and someone who is trying to do her work to the best of her ability.”

“He apparently attacked me because I was an actress. I’m not here to promote any kind of dress code. I’m only here to say no one has the right to hurt, torture or attack anybody,” she said.

Fighting back tears, the actress said, “I completed the shoot only to send a message to all women of India to stand up against such incidents and keep their head held high. I thank my family, friends, fan media and the film industry for all their love and support assure you all that I’m hurt but not out, shocked but more determined. Injured but stronger than ever.”

She further blamed the lack of strong law enforcement for incidents such as these and stated, “We don’t have laws which instill fear and act as a deterrant. If he gets away with it this time, he will do this with another girl.”

Gauahar’s attacker, a man named Akil Malik, slapped the actress as she was hosting the final episode of India’s Raw Star last Sunday in front of an audience of 2,500 and 250 bouncers.
