Kumar Vishwas is again in the news for the wrong reasons. He is alleged to have made a sexist remark on BJP CM candidate Kiran Bedi. The BJP has now filed a police complaint against Kumar Vishwas. Kumar Vishwas is alleged to have said, in reference to Kiran Bedi, “Do you have to sleep with him in his bedroom or what?“.
But on seeing the complete video (shown below) it is clear that Kumar Vishwas said “Do you have to sleep in his bedroom” in reference to BJP supporters as a whole, and not Bedi. Hence the allegation that it is sexist doesn’t stand. It can be called vulgar, but it isn’t sexist.
Then why is BJP making an issue out of this? Is it because Kumar Vishwas’s reputation precedes him? Kumar Vishwas has been a habitual offender in making Racist, Sexist and Controversial remarks. Some time back he was in the dock for his racist remarks calling nurses from Malayam “Kaali-Peeli”:
In another video, which was probably from the time he wasn’t in AAP, he is seen glorifying the gruesome 9/11 attack on the World Trade Centre by Islamic Terrorists. He refers to the 9/11 attack as a “Festival given to the world by his brothers from Afghanistan” and calls it “Laden Ekadashi”.
Whether these frequent slip-ups from Vishwas are deliberate or unintentional is not known but they can surely put him trouble. Maybe every party needs a motor-mouth to say the things which its main leaders cannot say in public, and Kumar Vishwas is that loose cannon for AAP.
