The 24-year old youth who slapped Bollywood starlet and TV host Gauahar Khan during a reality show shoot, has reportedly told the Mumbai police he slapped her to so that she never wears a skimpy dress again.
Akil Malik turned moral police and took it upon himself to 'teach Gauahar a lesson' as he felt since he was sexually attracted to girls who wear short skirts, other youths could too.
Blatant and smug Malik told police that he had slapped Gauahar to help other youths like him. He said that girls wearing short clothes "damage the brains" of youngsters and instigate them to commit crimes.
In his statement to the police, as reported by Mid-Day, Malik said, "Actresses are the face of society and they should not wear skirts and short clothes as they make youngsters get attracted to them sexually.
These days, boys who are minors are also committing crimes such as rape and molestation and many of them keep obscene photographs of actresses in their pockets. If actresses stop wearing short clothes, crime will decrease and lead to a better society."
Akil had been visiting the sets of India's Raw Star for three days and he was enraged with Gauahar's outfits. He said he had tried to explain to Gauahar that wearing short clothes was against Islam but when the argument got heated he slapped her in presence of over 2500 people.
Akil has been slapped with Indian Penal Code sections 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation).
He has been remanded in police custody till Thursday.
