TERI case: Take gods to court, let the likes of Pachauri carry on with sexual harassment

By being silent on Pachauri and letting TERI off the hook we are, in effect, de-humanising women, making them a sum total of their body parts #InMyOpinion #Sexual harassment #Sabarimala #sexism #RK pachauri #TERI #Shani Shingnapur Temple #The Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace Act of 2013
