After Bengaluru’s ‘mass molestation’ that took place on New Year’s Eve, Samajwadi Party Mumbai unit chief Abu Azmi said something absolutely obnoxious that made many angry. “In this modern age, the lesser clothes a woman is wearing, more modern she is considered. If my sister or daughter is roaming around on December 31 with random men who aren’t their husband or brother, I don’t think that’s right.” he told ANI.

Guess what, even after he was slammed on social media and otherwise for his comments, he refused to budge from his stand. When confronted, he said, “If there’s petrol near fire, it will burn. If there is sugar, ants will come. A lot of people will be angry with me for saying this, but that’s alright because this is the truth.”

While many celebrities condemned his statement, actor Esha Gupta went a step further and blamed his mother for giving birth to him. “The only woman to blame here,n she probably would have blamed herself too,is the woman who unknowingly gave birth to a j**k like u#AbuAzmi,” she tweeted.

The post didn’t go down well with many who criticised her for speaking disparagingly about his mother but the SP leader’s son and actor Ayesha Takia’s husband Farhan Azmi stooped extremely low in insulting Gupta, in an attempt to justify his father’s unwanted comments.

On the one hand, we demean the women who sell their bodies to earn money and on the other, we honour the ones who expose their skin to earn crores (in the film industry), he tweeted. He further added, in the name of art, women have been called ‘tandoori murgi’ and ‘Zandu balm’, it’s on songs such as those that the ‘well-wishers of society’ sit and enjoy their drink. What happens then?

It’s absolutely beyond one’s imagination how someone can defend Azmi’s comments that reeks of misogyny. It takes an ‘evolved’ mind to say that women should take precautions to prevent getting molested instead of teaching a lesson to the molester or strengthening laws against them. Believe it or not, Azmi junior retweeted some people’s tweets who slut-shamed Gupta sharing her pictures.
