It is a very vague and vulgar way of expressing the wrath on a woman by passing on sexiest slur only to invite trouble or seek apology or deny having made such a statement. This is not in good taste and not within the exact word for freedom of expression. In India women are considered like God even though the men treat them as weaker sex. Women achieve greater things in life and play a pivotal role in forming a family or head an office and take up additional responsibilities despite all the limitations. Just passing lewd comments and attacking a woman for the sake of attacking is not encouraged in a diverse country like India. Having undergone a simple living and high thinking women from all walks of life plays a significant role in forming a government in state as well. By passing a silly comment BJP leader opened up his dirty mouth and in the process was sacked for the unwarranted comments about a national woman leader. Attacks on Dalits in Gujarat and other places set a bad precedent as we love to have unity in diversity all the time. It is a lesson for other BJP leaders to restrain from making such statements and paying heavy price for the same.
