Sona Mohapatra Calls Salman ‘Thug’, Speaks Up on Trolls
Ever since Salman Khan made the comment about walking out of the rink and feeling like a ‘raped woman’, most of the industry folks have chosen to remain silent on the issue. Barring a few.
Ambar Sariya singer, Sona Mohapatra criticized Salman’s comment and got relentlessly trolled by his fans on Twitter. She has now written a post on Facebook in response to the trolls who have got guns blazing at her for her criticism of the Sultan actor.

The singer has written about “being mercilessly trolled in the last 48 hours, with rape threats, inundated with morphed naked porn images & threatened to be put out of work.”
But the singer took a brave stand to not let anyone - referring to Salman Khan - from allowing her to speak up. She also talked about the star having the ‘power’ to put her out of work. She said: “Who will put us out of ‘work’?? Salman Khan??!! That ‘talented’ (!?) thug? I don’t think so.”

Here’s the full text of what she said.
A 21 year old was brutally gang raped in Bihar’s Motihari town. Guns & wooden sticks inserted into her, putting her in a critical condition. The culprits are absconding. Yet again. Meanwhile Soni Sori has been fasting for the 9th day to get justice for other such brutalised & killed women in Chattisgarh. No TV news debate on this. No glamour there I suppose. Every time I was called to opine on these debates the last few days, the moment I brought up the bigger issue that needs to be talked about & not merely what I said about a comment made by an imbecile..silence..no takers. So I avoided them all. The fact that I have been mercilessly trolled in the last 48 hours, with 1000’s of rape threats, inundated with morphed naked porn images & threatened to be put out of work & lots more is only an indication of the poison in our society. Poison that gets a chance to flow freely when national ‘Icons’ created not only by their followers & audience but encouraged by their peers & media, regularly misbehave, talk rubbish, do rubbish, don’t get punished, don’t learn from their mistakes but instead get encouraged, celebrated, pack cinema halls & become brand ambassadors of ‘goodwill’.Depressing to say the least.Can’t give up though. I have trained all my life for this. Have to get up, dust myself & live a life worth living.& in a Billion plus country, containing the largest population of many many good, honourable, hard working people, I will not let the the stupid, dangerous, nasty few win. Who will put us out of ‘work’?? Salman Khan??!! That ‘talented’ (!?) thug? I don’t think so. I can think of 100 different ways to make a living & thrive but I will choose to sing & perform my music till the last day. Not him, not anyone can stop that. I cannot even imagine the pain of that 21 year old girl, her family & the struggles of Soni Sori but I do know that I can commit to their cause. We are all linked up by the same umbilical cord.Rape is no joking matter.Sona Mohapatra
