Bollywood actor Juhi Chawla believes 5G should be “certified safe” before being rolled out for the public. She submitted a plea to the Delhi High Court against 5G but the court threw out the petition and fined her.
As India readied itself for a 5G launch, Chawla announced her concerns with the technology. She claimed 5G radiations can have ill effects on human beings and wanted the technology to be tested. She and two others, Veeresh Malik and Teena Vachani, filed a suit in the Delhi High Court where they argued that “it was an established scientific fact that a 5G release could be danger of imminent nature”, despite there being no credible studies to back up this assertion.
The plea was turned down by the court. Justice JR Midha said said he believed the lawsuit was filed for publicity. The court also directed that a contempt notice be issued to Chawala and the others.
