AFTER UP, HARYANA CM MANOHAR LAL KHATTAR MAKES DEFAMATORY COMMENT ABOUT KASHMIRI WOMEN, GETS SCHOOLED

 A bizarre “joke” made by Manohar Lal Khattar about the Kashmiri women has invited the wrath of the Twitteratis. The Haryana chief minister was at a rally where he made such insensitive remarks Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who slammed him as a “weak, insecure and pathetic man”.


The statement did not go down well with Gandhi, who said it reflected what “years of RSS training does”. Calling the comment despicable, he added that “women are not assets to be owned by men”.

 

Khattar, addressing a rally in Haryana’s Fatehabad on Friday, talked about his state’s improved sex ratio with a statement seen as sexist by many.


West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee also took too her Twitter to express herself by saying ‘those holding office must refrain from making insensitive statements’.

“We, and more so people holding high public office, must restrain ourselves from making insensitive comments about the beloved people of Jammu and Kashmir. These are hurtful, not only for J&K, but the entire nation,” she tweeted.





Apart from these, many of the media persons and common people slammed the politician for his remarks. See Tweets;


 






The Delhi Commission of Women has also recommended that an FIR should be filed against Khattar for his insensitive remarks on Kashmiri women. Earlier this week, a BJP MLA from Uttar Pradesh had also said “bachelors” in the party could now marry "fair Kashmiri women".

 

A few days back a BJP leader Vikram Saini in Uttar Pradesh’s Muzaffarnagar made a really insensitive remark about Kashmiri women saying that now the BJP workers who are bachelors, are free to marry a fair Kashmiri girl.

 

The statement came after Modi Government revoked the article 370 and 35A of the Indian constitution which provided special status to the state of Kashmir.
