Earlier they were called ‘tawaif’ now they are called ‘actresses’: Samajwadi Party MP ST Hassan’s sexist jibe on Zaira Wasim

Hassan said politics should not be done on Zaira's decision

There is no difference between a ‘tawaif’ and an actress, said Samajwadi Party (SP) MP ST Hassan on the Zaira Wasim controversy.

Endorsing Wasim’s decision to quit films because it interfered in her faith, SP leader said, any work which includes displaying a woman’s sex appeal or skin show is against Islam. “She could always go for ‘pure’ acting,” he added. He further said that Meena Kumari and Jaya Bachchan did ‘pure’ acting. “Earlier Nawabs had ‘mujra’ at their places and a tawaif (courtesan) would come and perform and entertain people. Nothing wrong in it. If ‘tawaif’ may be an unparliamentary word so we could remove it and use the word ‘actress’ instead’. Tawaif is not a sex worker. She entertains people. Earlier they were called ‘tawaif’ now they are called ‘actresses’. Earlier it (entertainment) used to happen in front, now it happens on screen.

The controversy over Zaira Wasim’s retirement took a sudden twist today after her manager claimed that her social media account was ‘compromised’ and she did not put up those posts. With announcing her sudden retirement from Bollywood after stating that it was compatible with Islam, Zaira had stirred up a storm in the Bollywood and ‘liberal’ world, who otherwise indulges in Muslim victimhood propaganda.

Now new reports suggest that Wasim’s manager has refuted media reports which quoted him saying that Wasim’s social media accounts were hacked.
