Union Minister Smriti Irani recently made headlines for her alleged comments on women's entry in Sabarimala temple, during a recent event. While she faced massive backlash for pointing out an alleged uncanny analogy over a prevailing debate, she called the whole statement 'a fake news', and that her statement was taken out of context.
Now, in an interesting turn of events, the former television actress took it to her Instagram, to post a throwback picture from her 'Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi' days, while hitting back at the trolls.
Smriti Irani posted a photo of her hands tied up with ropes, with a cloth around her mouth, and captioned it by saying '#hum bolega to bologe ki bolta hai.'
Take a look at the post:
On Tuesday, Smriti Irani took to her social media, to post a series of tweets, issuing a statement regarding the remarks, she had made at a Q&A in Mumbai, which went viral:
"I respect that stand by the Zoroastrian community / priests and do not approach any court for a right to pray as a mother of 2 Zoroastrian children. Similarly Parsi or non Parsi menstruating women irrespective of age DO NOT go to a Fire Temple. These are 2 factual statements. Rest of the propaganda / agenda being launched using me as bait is well just that ... bait."
"As far as those who jump the gun regarding women visiting friend’s place with a sanitary napkin dipped in menstrual blood — I am yet to find a person who ‘takes’ a blood soaked napkin to ‘offer’ to any one let alone a friend. But what fascinates me though does not surprise me is that as a woman I am not free to have my own point of view. As long as I conform to the ‘liberal’ point of view I’m acceptable. How Liberal is that ??"
Meanwhile, this is not the first time that the former HRD Minister has posted hilarious memes in order to keep up with the social media trends. Union Minister Smriti Irani is quite active on Instagram, posting funny memes and throwback pictures from her acting days on Indian television.
