Jaya Prada INSULTED By Political Rival; Bollywood Reacts

Cutting across ideologies, celebrities condemned the outrageous remarks by a politician on Jaya Prada

Jaya Prada recently joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) after a stint at various other political parties. However, despite being a veteran in politics, she was dragged into the murk of it when Azam Khan, a political rival made some extremely disparaging remarks about the former actress. His misogynistic comments were widely condemned. Here are a few other reactions.

Vani Tripathi Tikoo

“This man (Azam Khan) has a  history of vulgar misogynistic remarks against Jaya Pradaji. He has called her  everything from  a nachenewalli to a prostitute.  Would  he make the same lurid  remark about  a male opponent  in  politics? Women are repeatedly humiliated  in politics  with personal remarks about their clothes, makeup  etc.  I am glad an  FIR has been lodged against this monstrous  misogynist. But that is  not enough. He  should be  barred  by the Election Commission from contesting any elections now or  in  the  future.”

“I was in Kerala and I didn’t know  of this despicable man’s latest  muck slinging  until someone told me about it. His words are no longer shocking. He is capable of saying anything to attract attention. The man is revolting. He is a slur on his gender. Jaya Pradaji could immediately take criminal action  against him. I wonder  how he addresses the women in his family. Does he talk to them about  the colour  of  their  lingerie? What kind of an upbringing has this man had to talk this way? Bringing in the colour Khaki into his dirty attack on a dignified female  politician is  a very cheap communal gimmick. There will be  a counter-attack with the colour ‘green’ being splashed. This is exactly the  kind  of attention this man wants.”

Ashoke Pandit

“It’s nothing but arrogance of a politician like him. This is how they must be addressing  their wives and daughters at home also. They need heavy medical treatment. None of those 600 signatories of film industry have condemned it. Probably must be thinking that’s it his freedom of expression.”

Renuka Shahane

“Azam Khan is somebody who has consistently been disgusting  in his  talk about women. Our politics would be better without him. He is a repeat offender. People like him should not be given a ticket at all. Hope strict action is taken against him for this outrageous insult.”
