Angry social media users slam Pranab son's comments, apology
Kolkata: Users of social media like Facebook and Twitter Thursday went hammer and tongs against President Pranab Mukherjee's son Abhijit for terming Delhi's women protesters after the Dec 16 gang-rape as "dented-painted".
While some cried "shame" angrily condemning the Congress Lok Sabha member for the "insensitive' comments, others called for stripping him of the house membership and his "re-education". Journalist-turned-filmmaker Utpal Borpujari was scathing.
"The politicians, in their public speeches/media interviews, often talk about the need to change the mindset of the society to stop many ills, but who will change their mindset? The demeaning comments against women have come from politicians across party lines and gender at different times, and Abhijeet Mukherjee is only the latest to join the list.
"Shame on this insensitive class," said Borpujari in a Facebook post. Another scribe Nabeel Khan called the comments "filthy" on Facebook. "Dada says girls' make up n disc invite violence...then.. can he sight 1 exmaple whr men have been attacked 4 looking gud or visiting disco?"
Saddened by the current political situation of the country, actress-businesswoman Preity Zinta is thinking about joining politics, as she wants to be part of a movement which can bring a positive change in India's political system.
