National Commission of Women (NCW) Asks Makers To Apologise And Discontinue The ‘Gunjan Saxena’ Screening

Rekha Sharma, Chairperson of the National Commission of Women (NCW), has asked the film makers of ‘Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl’ to apologise and discontinue the screening of the movie for showing Indian Air Force in the negative light.

Rekha Sharma tweeted, “The real Gunjan Saxena must come out and clarify whether the gender discrimination shown in movie is for real? Being from Army background I can never imagine defence officers behaving like goons. Officer or not, women are always get their due respect in forces.”

The real Gunjan Saxena said in a statement that that she received support from her male colleagues and got equal opportunities like her male counterparts at the Indian Air Force (IAF).

After this statement, NCW chairperson Rekha Sharma tweeted, “If that is so, the film maker must apologise and discontinue the screening. Why showing something which is portraying our own forces in bad light specially when it’s not true.”
