Akhilesh Yadav defends Azam Khan’s Khaki underwear remark on Jaya Prada

Azam Khan also said journalists that SP leaders are their fathers

A day after senior Samajwadi Party (SP) leader and Lok Sabha candidate Khan made highly derogatory remarks about BJP Lok Sabha candidate Jaya Prada, SP President Akhilesh Yadav has come out in support of Khan instead of condemning it. While speaking at a public rally, Yadav said that Khan was talking about someone else and not Jaya Prada and that Samajwadis do not use such language for women. Hum Samajwadi loh hain. Kabhi bhi hum mahilaon k prati aur betiyo k prati, kabhi bhi koi bhasha galat istemaal nahi kar sakte hain” (We are Samajwadis. We can never use bad language for women and daughters).

During an election rally yesterday, Khan had attacked Prada by making sexist remarks against her. The Rampur MLA, in a single breath, swore on his late mother denying the allegations levelled by Prada against him and then went on to say that within 17 days he had recognised that the colour of her (Prada’s) underwear was Khaki (suggesting that Prada had RSS links).

After facing backlash for making such shameless remarks, he denied having made those remarks against Prada and said that he did not take anyone’s name. He even said that if anyone could prove that he named anyone, he would not contest the election.

An FIR has been filed against Khan by the UP POlice for his misogynist remarks against Prada and a case has been registered under section 509 of the IPC. The National Commission of Women (NCW) has also taken suo moto cognisance of the matter and has written to the Election Commission to take strict action.

Azam Khan did not spare the even media persons who had quested about his comment, and displayed his arrogance by making personal attacks against them. Khan was in Vidisha to attend the last rites of former Rajya Sabha MP of Samajwadi Party, Munawwar Salim who passed away earlier today.

When media persons stopped him to ask questions, he replied, “apke vaalid ki maut mein aya tha” (I came here to attend your father’s funeral), which sounded as if he was suggesting that Samajwadi Party leaders are media’s baaps.
