Misogyny and Sexism : Tools of Dirty Tricks Department of Grand Old Party

Misogyny and sexism has always been the hallmark of Grand Old Party. Starting from Nehru-Edwina to Digvijay and his lewd lexicon speaks a lot about so called “Women Empowerment” which RaGa keeps on harping all the time. The Dirty Tricks Department of the party boasts of people like Tehseen Poonawala whose tweets on Smriti Irani are shamelessly crass and sexist. Tehseen is linked to Mr Vadra. No wonder, stooges in the media are shying away from talking about this Congress troll. Swati Chaturvedi ! Do you have the guts to speak now against Congress trolls?

Tehseen stands exposed now. He has been loitering on the wrong side of the law. He deserves nothing but a jail term. But it’s not going to happen. Labyrinthine legal process of this country coupled with JijaJi’s clout is good enough to keep Tehseen out of law’s bounds. Rahul Raj gets victimized but this JiJaJi’s boy has a unique immunity. Mainstream media has been sleeping on this issue. Like US, Indian Mainstream Media too is the “Opposition” and plays a selective tune. The music of liberalism does not take into account abuse and victimization of Union Textile Minister.

Its time to raise voice against this inequality.  I am still wondering why a FIR has not been lodged against Tehseen Poonawala. Do we need Karni Sena’s hand movements to cause outrage ? We, as a nation, need to outrage against the subjugation and abuse perpetrated by privileged few.

    It has been a year since this clown has abused Smriti. No doubt, the so called women brigade within Congress would shy away from making any comments that would harm their otherwise comfortable life in this context particularly considering the fact that this clown is the near and dear of the Gandhi’s and Vadra! And it is well understood too that Main Stream Media, the so called fourth pillar of democracy would dare not utter a word against this powerful lobby. My concern is not with these groups as such. My worry is at the apathy BJP shows towards incidents like this. A reprimand should have been swift and meant as a deterrent to such irresponsible misogynistic comments. He should have been pulled out of Twitter. Freedom of speech does not mean hurling abuses in public by supposedly cultured political parties. I blame BJP the most for letting off this incident without reprimand. To take it up now and talk about it is nothing but foolish in the least.
