Actress-turned-environmentalist Juhi Chawla on Monday hit out at claims that she had filed a lawsuit against the rollout of 5G Wi-Fi community technology to gain publicity.
Juhi posted a 14-minute long video on Instagram, in which she narrated how her fight against the installation of mobile towers began. He revealed that he suddenly saw 14 mobile towers at the Sahyadri Visitor Home just opposite his residence. Later, she came across a news article which defined the dangerous consequences of mobile radiation on human health.
Juhi, who actively spread awareness on the dangerous consequences of radiofrequency radiation (RF), on May 31 filed a lawsuit against the implementation of 5G cell technology in India. She said that 5G technology exposes individuals and animals to RF radiation that is 10 to 100 times greater than what is currently present.
Nevertheless, his suit was dismissed by Justice JR Midha, who retired a few months back. Justice Midha, while pronouncing the judgment last month, said that the plaintiffs (Juhi Chawla and the other two) had misused the law. Justice Midha also imposed a fine of Rs 20 lakh on the plaintiff. Additionally, as was said, it looks like the offer was for publicity.
Responding to such claims, Juhi has now said, “No matter what happened in June, I felt at a loss and confused. On one hand I got some dangerous press and publicity, on the other, I got heartwarming from strangers. Received messages that they are really and completely helping me.”
He said, “One such message was from a group of farmers from Maharashtra, which brought tears to my eyes, they wanted to run a voluntary campaign to collect a small amount from each of their 10,000 farmer neighbourhoods, so that I could help pay the hefty amount.
Fines, I was fined. Moments like this made me grateful that no matter what, I had voiced my voice for the health of many, many easy-going people in my country. When the storm subsided, and I could see more clearly, I became calm and powerful as I realized what an essential, well-relevant and influential question I had raised. How would the world have emerged in the best way?
She continued, “All this while I have remained silent because I feel that silence has its own voice, but now I would like to give some important and surprising details of events in my 11-year journey of discovery of EMF radiation.” Ignorance of its welfare consequences and reluctance of some officials in this regard.”
Along with the clip, Juhi also requested her fans to decide whether it is a publicity stunt or not.
