Shaheen Bhatt's strong stand against internet abusers and online haters issuing rape threats has resounded with many netizens as well as her family and friends. If you're wondering what we're talking about, let us bring you up to date. In a strongly worded series of posts, Alia Bhatt's sister Shaheen said she will not choose to ignore rape threats, harassment and hate messages on social media henceforth. Instead she will be blocking comments and messages as well as reporting it and taking legal action. 

Now, Shaheen's mum Soni Razdaan has backed her daughter for taking on this fight. Sharing a screenshot of Shaheen's post, Soni addressed Instagram and wrote, "@instagram I do hope you’re reading this and taking some note of it. Because it really gets to the root of the issue. So easy na to let the abusers off the hook. To let yourself off the hook. To let the onus fall on the abused to take action to protect themselves. It’s basically and fundamentally ALL WRONG. And it’s high time it was stopped at the source itself. And the stinking abusers get their just desserts. Social media has for too long now become the most antisocial media mainly because those running the platforms are not doing enough to prevent abuse." 

Take a look at her post:

Shaheen's half sister Pooja Bhatt also agreed with Soni and commented, "I completely agree. @instagram needs to have a good,hard look at their policies. The trolls who spew venom in the name of others need to be brought to book." In an explosive post, Shaheen had shared a screenshot of harassment messages and rape as well as death threats she has received in the past. She wrote, "I should not have to change the way I use a platform if someone is being abusive. They should. Full Stop."

Shaheen is really irrelevant, but it's understandable that Soni and Alia are defending her. Netizens troll when they sense an aroma of hypocrisy. She's in the RING more than everybody else in the family.

TO BE FAIR: Can we say Ranbir has learn't a lot from Rishi and Neetu? Ans: YES! Ranbir hasn't got caught up in these sort of mess? RISHI WAS ALWAYS ON SOCIAL MEDIA a lot. Rishi..ji just didn't give a damn....LOL

They should dump their dad for me to like them honestly. Might be women of power but knowing they accommodated mahesh's behaviour all these years makes me feel sick. change starts from when women stop that sort of antics of men. They should dump their dad and set an example to the society. Alia will remain a big star then

Agreed till then I don’t see these women as truly powerful. I just see them as being under Mahesh’s thumb. If Alia needs to truly succeed going forward she needs to dissociate from Mahesh ( shady af and mafia connections). Till then whatever this family speaks is ridiculous. They let their dad and husband abuse young girls and don’t speak up. Now when they’re being verbally abused suddenly remember power. Arey chondus go complain abt your husband and dad.

Neetu has blessings and the wisdom . She will not allow that to happen . Ridhima is wise too ..they will ask Ranbir to withdraw gradually not instantly .

Neetu will cry her hurt out once her son gets married to this cunning girl.. She will feel the pain that she has given to Deepika and Katrina. Her son was in a live in relationship with katrina for 6 years. If Alia can date a guy who was in a live in relationship with her best friend katrina can you image the purity of her heart ?

Now, you know how it feels when people are constantly bullying you. Imagine how Sushant felt when your ugly sister, murderer father, alia's godfather/aunty karan johar constantly put Sushant down on KWK. You have so much support, our poor guy had no godfathers, no mother to support him during his bad days. Did you talk to your dad to give him a chance and to suport an outsider? Your monster father said Sushant was going the praveen babi way so if he knew that then WHY didn't he try to help him? Your father knew he's an outsider and he has no support. Why didn't he help him out? Sushant was about his kids age so why didn't he feel his pain? Instead, he bit**ed/gossiped about him and moved on. Where was you, your mother, and alia when all that was happening. Alia said who is Sushant and now we ask you who are you to support us from gettting justice. Your devil father has relations with Rhea who is also the age of his kids, why isn't your mother standing up for Rhea? WHy is your mother letting your father r*pe Rhea? Why you never stand up against injustice. Nothing will save you from Karma and it will punish each and every one of you. Who would want to rape ugly girls of your family?

What they are doing is definitely to protect Alia. She is the golden goose. And maybe first time a Bhatt has been a top A lister for this long. She is even going to marry the top scion of Kapoor Khandaan. They wouldn't want to jeopardize it. But the way they all jumped into the mental illness angle has been weird. Which could mean there is more to it. They have been playing this mental illness thing from Parveen Babi times.

Sushant was a strong and honest guy always helping women . See his videos at old age homes .. he used to help women in start up Enterpreneurship .. send kids to Nasa .. work with the underprivileged .. clean the beaches .. amd all that without any paid PR .. Charity to India in crores which he mentioned about to inspire others to do the same . He was a philanthropist .. he was helpful not helpless . He started from scratch and valued his journey and success . . No-one bought the earlier made up stories . He was a dreamer and a cheerful person . He was Murdered . Mahesh predicted it . We need an explanation . All this is made up .

What did Soni do when AB went on KWK and said what she would do to SSR when asked the question by KJO? Let's start addressing abuse right with that show. It is bullying plain and simple. SSR was bullied by nepos and now they are getting roasted for it. The issue that thrust the nepos into a negative light again is the bullying and blocking of SSR. My second point is, nothing justifies rape threats. I am unequivocal about that. Soni is speaking up to protect her daughter as any parent would do. It is the right thing. She also should've schooled Alia on workplace bullying that too is the right thing. PV you are not posting. Please post.

These trolls aka fans of KRK and Kangana are obsessed with Alia and her family lol. The minute an article pops up, they line up to start their kitty party. I am not Alia's fan but I am amused by the fact that Alia has consumed their minds in a deep way. When the negativity is too deep within your mind, they say it manifests in a physical way too eventually. Save yourselves from that before it is too late folks!

I really like Ranbir as an actor, Although rest of these nepo kids are shitty actors pls now I wish he breaks up with this Bhatt. Better never marry than marrying a wrong girl.

Ranbir maybe a good actor, but do give him the credit of cheating on multiple women and using drugs. He is as much a wrong boy as much alia is a wrong girl. Both deserve each other

Guys,Mahesh bhatt wanted to portray Sushant as psycho and mentally disturbed ,so as from now address all bhatts as 'psycho', put it before their name when commenting.Go and see psycho soni tweet few days ago, she indirectly said sushant death was due to depression by saying depression happen to rich people and cannot be sidelined.

You old pig,nothing is being done to put your whole family behind bars after being complicit with star crimes and terrorists attacks.My dogs have more compassion than these monsters, they want to get away with it and kill another sushant tomorrow.I don't know how these people have audacity to make victims out of themselves when they are real devils, i wonder if they have one 1% feelings for ssr and his family suffering!They want to escape and get clean image but this time NO,have to make sure you guys suffer too.
