With SP leaders Abu Azmi and Mulayam Singh Yadav facing flak from all quarters for their controversial statements about rape, Bollywood celebs including Azmi's daughter-in-law Ayesha Takia Azmi take to Twitter to voice their opinion. Here's what they say...
Ayesha Takia Azmi: We surely do nottt share this mindset...its disrespectful to women.if these statements r true then its sad... If what I'm reading about my father-in-law's statements is true then me and Farhan are deeply embarrassed and ashamed... We surely do not share this mindset... It's disrespectful to women. If these statements are true then it's sad.
Farhan Akhtar: Cannot get over MS Yadav's comment on rapists- 'Boys will be boys.. They make mistakes'. It's pathetic! Abu Azmi meanwhile, wants to hang women who willingly have sex. I think he needs to hang up his boots & seek medical attention ASAP.
Rakhi Sawant: Mulayam Singh Yadav must be Voted out for #BackingRapists Thats why i say Women like me needs to be in Parliament for making strong laws...Wondering what made AbuAzmi to say that... Shameless people..
Arjun Rampal: The comments by our political giants on rape victims is down right appalling. Let those boys make the same mistakes on their mothers and sisters.
Divya Dutta: But with no bias why is everyone slapping Kejriwal! Why don't they dare it with a few others?
Shruti Seth: Are the leaders of the Samajwadi Party playing tag in making stupid comments? They seem to be on a roll. Someone slap them please.
Sophie Choudry: Appalled and infuriated! Victim should be punished for rape? Sick! Maybe we should all be punished for allowing such leaders to f*ck us everyday!
Sanjay Gupta: Mulayam Singh and Abu Azmi. Regressive, redundant and retarded thinking. Absolute shame! Are they looking for votes of rapists?
Nikhil Advani: At least we can object and react. I pity the people around Mr. Abu Azmi who have no choice but to tolerate such an individual.
Amrita Puri: There is something intrinsically wrong with the mindset of Indians if leaders like Abu Azmi can make such regressive public statements. People like Abu Azmi just go to show what a long way India has to go for women's liberation and empowerment to become a reality.
Andy Vijay Kumar: Shocking! 'Women should be punished if they are raped' 'Women having sex should be Hanged' Abu Azmi is he sane? Should this man be in power?
Vinay Pathak: And to hear such atrocities from our so called protectors and representatives! What could one say, do, that defies them? Isn't he a reminder of who, what we have become largely? And the most terrifying part is that they might get elected again...
Vir Das: Abu Azmi.....What a steaming pile of horseshit... I'm sorry... I know this isn't funny... I didn't think he deserved a punchline.
Anjana Sukhani: Mulayam now Abu Azmi. What's wrong wth these senile oldies. They make demeaning statemnts for media attention. Retract and apologise. Do you think we are fools?
Raveena Tandon: Malayan Singh Yadav and Medha Patkar !!!!!!!!!! Really ??????? And you think now India will vote for you?
Jose Covaco: Whenever a politician says something insanely ridiculous, you can be sure we're being distracted from some huge scam somewhere.
Kamaal R Khan: Mulayam said boys should not be punished if they rape girls and Abu Azmi said that girls should be hanged if they have sex. They are mentally sick people. Women should attack and throw stones on houses of SP leaders all over India to teach them lesson so they will learn to respect women.
