Banglore Molestation : Abu Azmi's Son Blast his father's critics
Farhan Azmi, the son of Abu Azmi lashed out at Bollywood actors Esha Gupta and Farhan Akhtar for criticising his father over his remarks on Bangalore mass molestation.
Abu Azmi, Mumbai Samajwadi Party chief, recently spoke about Bangalore mass molestation and he blamed girls' attire for the incident. "If there's petrol near fire, it will burn. If there is sugar, ants will come" he had said.
His obnoxious remark had angered many people and Bollywood celebs had also criticised him and Esha Gupta was one among them.
The actress had tweeted: "The only woman to blame here,n she probably would have blamed herself too,is the woman who unknowingly gave birth to a jerk like u#AbuAzmi."
Esha Gupta's tweet did not sit well with Abu Azmi's son Farhan, who took to his Twitter handle to blast the actress. He tweeted: "Esha, woman who gave birth to @abuasimazmi is my grandma,who is no longer amongst us to defend herself.She was far more dignified than U."
Farhan did not stop there. In a series of Hindi posts, he wrote that we demean the women who sell their bodies to earn her livelihood. On other hand, we honour the ones who expose their skin to earn crores (in film). In the name of art, women have been called 'tandoori murgi' and 'Zandu balm', it's over such songs the 'well-wishers of society' sit and enjoy their drink. What happens then?
Esha Gupta responded to his comment and wrote: "I don't think it's about religion, our religion doesn't tell us what to wear and what not to. Small minded humans decide." Later, the actress added: "If only he understood the English language well enough, he would understand what I wrote. but the apple doesn't fall far from the tree I see."
Farhaan also blasted Bollywood filmmaker Farhan Akhtar, who had tweeted: "Women should not dress like westerners b'coz men dressed like westerners are molesters, says the man in the shirt. #oxy(deprived)morons." Azmi's son wrote: "Shame that you @FarOutAkhtar are the @UN_Women goodwill ambassador yet U found no words to demand action against a single rapist #hypocrite."
Farhaan Azmi just proved the quote, like father like son. We tried to get comment from Aisha Takiya on this, but she remained mum.
