Govt sits on complaints filed by specially- abled persons for action against Red FM’s RJ
Srinagar: Specially-abled persons have written to the government seeking action against radio jockey (RJ) Rayees Mohiuddin of Red FM for mocking at a specially-abled person in a prank on his radio show.
Outraged by the humiliation, Valley’s specially-abled community mailed two separate complaints to the government’s social welfare department and J&K Information and Public Relations department on March 9. But for more than 24 hours, there was no response, says disability rights activist Javed Ahmad Tak.
The link of the show in which Mohiuddin can be seen deriding the specially-abled person for his entertainment show was also mailed along with the two complaints.
In one of the complaints addressed to secretary social welfare department who is also disability commissioner Bipul Pathak, Tak complained that the RJ has been doing pranks and highlighting the disability of a cleft and palate affected person.
