The National Commission for Women (NCW) slammed actor Salman Khan for a ‘rape’ comment he purportedly made during a group interaction with journalists.

In response to a question on the hectic shooting schedule for his upcoming film in which he plays a wrestler, Khan said, “It is like the most difficult thing….When I used to walk out of that ring, it used to be actually like a raped woman walking out.” Realizing his folly, Khan immediately added, “I don’t think I should have” and proceeded to say, “It feels like the most difficult….I couldn’t take steps. I couldn’t take steps.”

Lalitha Kumaramangalam, the chief of NCW, told news agency ANI that the commission has sent him a letter asking why he made the remark.

“This is very sad. Just because he is Salman Khan doesnt mean he will make such a statement,” she told ANI, adding that the commission has given him seven days to apologise.

Khan’s comments have led to outrage on social media with civil society activists demanding an apology from him.

Kavita Krishnan told ANI that Khan’s comment trivialises rape.

      Salman is feku's chamcha that's how he escaped jail sentence despite killing poor innocents. Feku saved him cause he flew kites with him. Feku chamchas are like feku, arrogant, with no regard for human lives. Salman is very arrogant

          Never heard these champions of women cause speaking anything against women who file false rape cases to settle personal scores. Ever heard them lecturing such women of what ordeal a woman goes through when she is physically aulted?

            Recently a girl in delhi committed suicide, a month after she was raped. What is NCW doing to take care of women who get raped and do not get any sort of support? Why was this girl driven to suicide? Has NCW introspected on this? Hauling Salman khan is no way going to help women of India
