Samajwadi Party leader Abu Azmi on Friday said that people allowing women to wear short clothes are the ones who actually disrespect them. “I have never disrespected women, but those who allow women to wear short clothes, disrespect them,” Azmi told ANI, adding that he would be called orthodox for asking women to wear proper clothes.

Azmi went on to say that women should be cautious about their security as long as crimes against them do not stop.

Azmi also ridiculed live-in relationships terming it as unacceptable in Islam and added that a woman should stay with a man only after marriage. He further defended his earlier offensive statement on the Bengaluru molestation case, saying that his remark was misquoted for the sake of TRP.

“The media has quoted me out of context just for the sake of TRP. They edited the statement while neglecting as to what the person is trying to say,” he said.

He also demanded strict action against the accused in Bengaluru molestation case. Azmi also called for stringent laws to deal with cases related to rape and molestation.

“After Delhi’s Nirbhaya gang-rape case, amendments in the law were made, but such cases are still increasing. Women do wear fashionable clothes in Dubai, Saudi Arab, Kuwait and Arab countries, but no one has the audacity to touch them because of the stringent laws there. Such laws should be enforced in our country,” he added.

Azmi said that he got support from various people for raising his voice for the Indian culture.
