There was a mass molestation in Bengaluru on New Year ’s Eve where Women were subjected to sexual assault and harassment. Many politicians stated that it took place because many women wore short dresses one of which was Abu Azmi, Ayesha Takia’s father-in-law.
He said, “It was bound to happen. Women were wearing short dress. If a girl celebrates after dark she should go with her husband, father and not with strangers.”
And Bollywood slammed him with for his statements!
Women should not dress like westerners b’coz men dressed like westerners are molesters, says the man in the shirt.#oxy(deprived)morons
