People like us are trying to get Women’s and Girl’s honor. On the other hand country’s media Hindustan Times tries to give a new dimension to Women’s Empowerment.
What are we teaching our students here, Hindustan Times? That it is okay to call women “MAAL” and “PATOLA” on a national publication?
The lead story on Hindustan Times HT City edition reads, “Naya Maal award goes to.”
What’s even more disturbing is that DU Girls are fighting to win this supposed title in the HT City-Fever 104 FM Campus Ka Mahayudh event. The event has other prestigious awards that students are vying to win.
At a time when we are striving to spread awareness against objectifying women, these shameful headlines and this derogatory contest just takes the movement a step back.
It’s a done deal. I guarantee you. Make sure to adjust with these new names and please teach your daughters if some body calls them “Maal” or “Patola” its a compliment nothing more. #Shameful
I would appeal Women and Girls to speak and raise their voice for Womanhood and stop participating in such events.
