Farhan Akhtar starts MARD campaign for women’s safety

The Bhaag Milkha Bhaag actor has embarked upon an initiative that will focus on the safety of women in the country

Actor-filmmaker-singer Farhan Akhtar has started a campaign called MARD – Men Against Rape and Discrimination that aims to sensitise men and create awareness about the safety of women.

“If you are a man who respects women… her rights, her dignity, her independence, her mind, her body, her life… you are a MARD,” tweeted Farhan. He has urged all men to sport the logo of MARD on their clothes and take the message across the country. “No restrictions on use of logo. Will be uploading a high resolution file soon. Please feel free to print and wear with pride. MARD,” he added.

Farhan has especially urged school authorities to start teaching boys about gender awareness at a very young age. “Teach them at the age when self awareness begins that being a man involves compassion, gender sensitivity and respect for women,” he wrote.

Farhan has often spoken about women’s safety and had even written a poem on women-related issues after a young girl was gang-raped in the capital on December 16 last year.
