Sharmistha, Pranab Mukherjee's daughter, speaks against sexual harassment on Facebook

President Pranab Mukherjee's daughter Sharmistha Mukherjee put up a Facebook post on Saturday about a man who has been sending her "dirty sexual messages" on the social networking site.

According to her post, Facebook user Partha Mandal has been sending her creepy messages, and her first reaction was to ignore or block him. However, she realised that her silence would only encourage the stalker to find other victims.

"I strongly feel such ppl shd be publicly exposed & humiliated. I'm posting screenshots of his profile & messages he sent me," she wrote in a Facebook post.

While sharing The Times of India article on the same, she tweeted, "Sexual offence not just crime against an india,its crime against collective dignity of women.We must break d silence."
