Bengaluru is under the shock and trauma of the night where innumerable women were assaulted, groped and heckled on crowded streets, instead of condemning the act our elected representatives were busy making sexist headlines.

Bengaluru Home Minister, G Parameshwar “these kinds of things do happen”. Samajwadi Party leader from Maharashtra and actress Ayesha Takia’s father-in-law, Abu Asim Azmi has reacted to assault on women on the New Year’s Eve in Bengaluru by comparing them to SUGAR that attracts ANTS.

Abu Azmi quoted “You have to keep petrol away from the fire. And if there is sugar, ants will come automatically to it. In today’s world, the more a woman is nude, the more she is considered modern and educated. Western culture is a black spot on country’s culture and it should be stoppd at the earliest.”

He earlier said that ‘raped women should be hanged’, went to say “If my sister is going outside home after sunset with a boy to celebrate new year, it cannot be expected that people will behave with her in a respectable manner.”

Twitterati blasted on him and took to their handles to express shame and disgust:

Abu Azmi clarified himself and tweeted:

One question- When will it stop?
