Pooja Bedi’s daughter Aaliyah Ebrahim is religiously active on social media and has caught the eyes of many.
That’s what made a blogsite introduce her to its audience with some of her photographs like these!
She has got the beauty of her mother…
And Aaliyah’s boldness is definitely her strength!
But things didn’t go well, and the post was flooded by many hate comments, a lot of them surprisingly by women!
The number of women haters were more than men. With such mentality how can females expect women’s empowerment?
In India, feminists ask for equality of both sexes; on the other hand, we have females who stop budding talents like Aaliya Ebrahim by portraying them as shameless, characterless or simply call them “porn ready” because of a few photos.
More surprising: men spoke in Aaliyah’s favor, calling the female reaction “internalized misogyny”!
People forget that India is a democratic nation with fundamental rights for everyone.
Aaliyah Ebrahim gave an excellent reply to all her haters and got a respectful salute from most of us:
“I came across a very nice post by Miss Malini that featured me. Everything within the post was very respectful and well said. When I read the comments, my smile faded away. All anyone spoke about was how I was barely wearing any clothes, how I was just another “r***i,” that “taking my clothes off” just made me an unworthy s**t. That I was “porn ready,” not “bollywood ready” and of course the perennial “Indian girls like this are ruining our culture.” I took a deep breath and went back to doing what I was doing. My plan was to ignore it like I ignored everything else that brought even an ounce of negativity into my life. But this annoyed me and refused to budge from the back of my mind.” She further added, “If my cleavage is visible, it does not mean I am giving consent, it does not mean I am “asking for it.” I am more than my breasts and it is unfair to let them define me.”
Well, all we can say is, shine on girl, cause haters are going to hate. Her reply was a slap on many misogynistic brains
“If my cleavage is visible, it does not mean I am giving consent, it does not mean I am “asking for it.” I am more than my breasts and it is unfair to let them define me.”
Well, this is what we want to tell you Aaliyah…
