No, Shabana Azmi, ‘trolls’ didn’t ‘stoop’ to ‘communalise and polarise’, you did with your Hinduphobic comment packaged as concern for women

Though the quote attributed to Shabana on Navratri had used the words 'Allah' and 'Inshallah', which were not used by Shabana on her 2017 tweet, the rest of the words were essentially the same.

Leftist self-proclaimed ‘intellectual’ Shabana Azmi, who is often seen peddling pseudo-secular propaganda on social media, has again displayed her hypocrisy today.

Reacting to an infographic circulated on Social media with a quote attributed to her, Shabana stated that she had never said it.

The quote attributed to her read, “This Navratri, I pray to Allah that no Laxmi is forced to beg, no Durga is killed in the womb, no Parvati has to give a dowry, no Saraswati is deprived of an education and no Kali has to use ‘Fair and Lovely’, Inshallah.

Shabana Azmi, staying true to her “liberal” credentials, blamed “trolls” for communalising and polarising an “already charged” election with a fake quote attributed to her.

However, Shabana soon discovered that social media makes lying slightly difficult. Especially when it is about one’s older Hinduphobic posts.

It was soon pointed out to her that though the quote had used the word ‘Allah’ falsely, Shabana had indeed posted something very similar on the occasion of Durga Ashtami in 2017.

Shabana had Tweeted,” This Durga Ashtami, let us pray that no Durga is aborted, no Saraswati is stopped from going to school, no Laxmi has to beg money from husband, no Parvati is sacrificed for dowry and no Kali is given a tube of fairness cream.” This was Tweeted on September 29, 2017.

Many on Twitter have pointed it out to Shabana that she had indeed posted a very similar tweet that was a veiled attack on Hindu belief disguised as women empowerment. In her 2017 tweet, Shabana had used the occasion of Durga Ashtami, one of the most important Hindu festivals, to peddle a Hinduphobic agenda, using the names of Hindu goddesses.

When she had posted the Tweet, many had pointed it out to her that she had not included the injustice and harassment faced by Muslim women and had attempted to shame Hindus for common social evils.

Though the quote attributed to Shabana on Navratri had used the words ‘Allah’ and ‘Inshallah’, which were not used by Shabana on her 2017 tweet, the rest of the words were essentially the same.
