Like father, like son, right? Seems so.
Samajwadi Party’s Maharashtra politician Abu Azmi recently shared his mind on the mass molestation incident in Bengaluru on New Year’s Eve.
Speaking to India Today, Abu said that molestation is unavoidable because women consider being nude as fashion.
“If a girl celebrates after dark she should go with her husband, father and not with strangers. There should be strict action against those going against our culture,” Abu Azmi said.
Earlier in 2014, Abu had gone on record to say that a raped girl should be hanged. A Deccan Chronicle report stated that according to Abu Azmi, “Rape is punishable by hanging in Islam. But here, nothing happens to women, only to men. Even the woman is accountable.”
Regarding her father-in-law’s statements, Ayesha had expressed her pain and anger regarding them on Twitter.
Well, yesterday bollywood actress Esha Gupta took to a dig at Abu Azmi’s rampant misogny and tweeted that the only woman to blame in regard to Abu Azmi’s remarks is his mother for unknowingly giving birth to a “jerk”.
Abu Azmi’s enraged son Farhan Azmi took to Twitter and attacked Esha in the most vile manner possible.
Meanwhile, on a completely unrelated note, Farhan Akhtar had tweeted the following.
But then, Farhan Azmi took offense to that as well and attacked Farhan Akhtar.
Farhan Azmi’s misogynist rant continued, wherein he compared Esha to a prostitute.
Farhan Azmi also alleged that a few people were morphing his wife Ayesha Takia and his mother’s images to insult his family.
All said and done, before Farhan Azmi went berserk, he did condemn his father’s statements by saying, “Women can roam around as they want, nobody has the right to touch them. Her rights should be protected. Why do we analyse such incidents. Nobody has the right to say such things. My father must have said this in stress. I will speak to him. I have seven sisters. We had a discussion after his previous comments and my father agreed not to say such things again. I support the girls who have faced the incident.”
