Why Are People Blaming Bengali Women After Shikhar Dhawan Split From Aesha Mukerji?

Details of Shikhar Dhawan and Aesha Mukerji’s divorce case left many people rooting for the cricketer, who was granted divorce from his wife on the grounds of mental cruelty. While it is truly sad to learn about Shikhar’s tumultuous marriage and how he has been a victim of harassment and extortion, to generalize women and blame an entire community because of Aesha Mukerji is unwarranted, unnecessary and downright vile.

To jog your memory a little, after Sushant Singh Rajput died by suicide and an investigation regarding his death was underway, people started accusing and trolling Bengali women because of Rhea Chakraborty’s involvement in the case. History is repeating itself. Bengali women, yet again, are being vilified, trolled and shamed online because of what Aesha Mukerji allegedly did to Shikhar Dhawan.

Innumerable people posted about how guys should steer clear of Bengali women, and how they ruin lives and take advantage of men. These are the same kind of people who shout “not all men” at the top of their lungs when women complain about feeling unsafe in public places.

It is downright regressive and shameful to blame an entire community of women for the actions of one.
