India can be said as the country with one of the hottest political atmospheres. The clash between parties and many people that want to acquire something in the government always become big news. However, in most of the controversial news, the cause is coming from the politicians. Actually, the news about India politicians made a controversial comment, we can even call it a stupid comment, is not surprising.
Here are few of those comments that are successfully stirring, not only India but also the world.
- Mulayam Singh Yadav
The leader of the Samajwadi Party made a controversial comment regarding the rape case that happened in April 2014. At that time, there was a gang rape case by three men. He defenses those men and even call what they do were normal. He put the raping act in the same term as a fight between girl and boys that make them close each other.
Yadav also made another comment in 2015 when the similar case happened.
- Tarun Vijay
Vijay made a racist comment in April 2017 when he was invited by Al Jazeera show to give a comment regarding the racist attacks in India. In March that year, there was an attack in Greater Noida that killed at least nine Africans; because locals accused them did cannibalism practice. The problem here is when Vijay calls some of the tribes in South India as black people.
He referred this name to Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra and many more. Although he makes an excuse that he said that for proving that there is no such a thing as racism in India as said by Mahesh Shantaram, the Bengaluru-based https://funbet88.net/ photographer.
- Prime Minister Narendra Modi
The number one person in India also makes a controversial comment about women. He said this statement at Dhaka University in Bangladesh. It happened when he congrats the Bangladesh PM, Sheikh Hasina, and said the despite being a woman, she has no tolerance against terrorism.
- Digvijaya Singh
The general secretary of Congress also made comment about women. He calls Meenakshi Natrajan as “sau tunch maal”. She is Rahul Gandhi’s aide when they have an event in Indore. That word can be considered rude towards women. That words’ meaning is “desirable object”, which is obviously looking down women.
Actually, there is a more controversial comment made by India politicians. Mostly, it’s related to women and different race. Maybe, this is also the reason why some people from outside India see India has a serious racism problem.
