A police complaint has been filed against Aam Aadmi Party leader and poet Kumar Vishwas for his alleged derogatory comments on women while on The Kapil Sharma show last week,  India Today has reported. “Jis samay chunav hota hai, to apne colony mein politician logon ko badi dikkat hoti hai…matlab jis ladki se aapka affair chalao uske pati ko bhi jijaji kehna padta hai, jijaji vote de dena samaan to aap le hi gaye.” (In the times of elections, politicians in our colony face a lot of problems. They have to call even that man ‘jija jee’ (husband of sister), who is the husband of the woman you had an affair with. You have to say jija jee give us votes, you have already taken our object),” the complaint quotes Vishwas as saying on the show.

Poets Shabina Adib and Dr Rahat Indori were also on the same television show that was aired on July 1.

The complaint has been lodged at Dabri Police Station of West Delhi by a woman who identifies herself as a homemaker, a social worker and a resident of Jeewan Park. In the complaint, the woman has also said she was watching the show with her daughter who asked her if she would also become an “object” after marriage and if women were mere “objects”.

This is not the first instance when Vishwas has spoken disparagingly about women. Earlier, in January 2014, he had said: “Earlier nurses used to come from Kerala, kali-peeli (dark skinned), one would naturally feel like calling them sister.”

      Anyone gets easy publicity in the name of KAPIL's show, as now-a-days KAPIL is popular more than Salmaan and public and Fans of KAPIL are eager to know the News about KAPIL.

          It appears the complainant has no sense of humour and has a habit of making mountain out of not even a mole! I'm no fan of any AAP politicians, but since I'd watched the entire episode, so I can clearly say that nowhere any poet tried to denigrate anyone. Everyone present in the audience were taking every bit satire in their perspective. Tomorrow, a dark complexioned man may file a case since Rahat Indori, was making fun of his own complexion!!! How low we'll stoop just to register two minutes media presence????

            I have reservations about that episode of Kapil Sharma Show which also featured Urdu poet Dr Rahat Indori. He was too much on your face, blatantly political and overtly partisan. As a poet he should use subtlety and remain bipartisan. He thereby sacrificed his position as a poet and reduced himself to being a mere pamphleteer, and must have lost a whole lot of admirers and fans. A poet by the very nature of his art is a rebel, an iconoclast, a non-conformist who questions everything. There were a lot of people shamelessly applauding his biased poetry, to show themselves as broad-minded and politically correct. Someone should have asked him, why as a poet he does not introspect as to why his religion is the most scorned all over the world, why every act of terror in the world today emanates from his co-religionists, why his great religion is so misogynist and averse to reforms.
