Samajwadi Party leader Mohammad Azam Khan made a controversial statement on BJP member Rama Devi in Lok Sabha for which she sought an apology from Mohammad Azam.
Azam Khan did not apologize and said he will resign if he had said anything unparliamentary. He also staged a walkout along with his party chief Akhilesh Yadav, who defended his remarks.
Many of the Lok Sabha members spoke against the sexist remark made by Samajwadi leader Mohammad Azam,

“This is an abominable act, I appeal to you for exemplary action,” said Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman to Speaker Om Prakash Birla in the Lok Sabha.

“The entire nation watched what happened…This is a blot on all legislators including men. We cannot remain silent spectators to it. We have to speak in one voice that this is unacceptable,” said Union Minister Smriti Irani. “This is not a House where men come in and ‘Kisi aurat ki aankhon mein jhanka jaye (look into the eyes of a woman),” she added, quoting Azam Khan.
Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said either Azam Khan should apologize or he should be suspended from the House. “The incident was painful. Rama Devi handled it with utmost dignity. We appeal for the toughest punishment, without compromise,” said Mr. Prasad.
“I am the youngest MP and this is all a learning experience. But what happened yesterday, that cannot be part of my learning process. Apart from any political differences, nobody can stand in Parliament and tell a woman – ‘look into my eyes and talk’. Speaker sir, all women here are expecting something big from you on this,” said Trinamool Congress lawmaker Mimi Chakraborty.
DMK lawmaker Kanimozhi said Azam Khan’s comments were the kind that “made women feel small”.

It has been more than 6 months since Article 370 has been abolished from the constitution in regards to Jammu and Kashmir. But still even the basic rights are not been given to the citizens of J&K. None of the fundamental rights have been of any help as they are still restricted from living freely. In such a space with watchdogs all around, the state looks like a silent deplore.
In the recent protests for JNU at Gateway, Mehek Prabhu, Marathi Mumbaikar, acknowledge the plight of Kashmiris and stood with a placard “Free Kashmir”. This created a political havoc as opposition termed it as a sedition, to which Sena responded, ‘there cannot be a dirtier example of irresponsibility’.


Former CM Devendra Fadnavis alleged concern, as he asked, “How can such anti-national activity happen under your nose”, to Uddhav Thackery. The placard gained media attention; while conversing with media Ms. Prabhu said, if a Mumbaikar Marathi woman could understand Kashmir’s Pain. The Opposition feels this sedition. There can’t be a dirtier example of irresponsibility. With constant pushy comments from Devendra Fadnavis, Uddhav Thackrey responded saying, “we understand his pain, and he should apply balm on his wounds and stay quiet”.


The Supreme Court’s Verdict for Jammu and Kashmir for the removal of excessive amendments and scrapping the amendments from Article 370, has shaken the Modi Government. As they are answerable for keeping the state under curfew for more than 6 months even after abolishing Article 370 of the constitution.
With the abolishment of the law, the fundamental rights are now applicable to the citizens of Jammu and Kashmir, where their basic rights are being illegally compromised. SC has ordered to start the internet services in the important areas within a weeks’ time and normalize the condition of the state to the soonest. There shall be an inquiry on the whole documentation of the rules imposed in J&K precisely after the abolishment of Article 370.
