A video of an MP from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Karnataka scolding a married woman for not wearing a Bindi has gone viral with many slamming the politician for his regressive comments.
In the video, BJP MP S Muniswamy from Kolar district had gone to inaugurate an exhibition and sales fair on the occasion of International Women’s Day, when he comes across a saleswoman selling sarees.
He sharply commented, “Wear a Bindi first. Your husband is alive, isn’t he? You have no common sense.”
Twitteratis have condemned the MP’s remarks calling them orthodox.
