NEW DELHI: BJP MP Tejasvi Surya faces backlash on social media platforms and landed in a controversy for his 2015 derogatory tweet on Arab women and forced to delete it.
The 5-year-old controversial and misogynistic tweet on Arab Women became the outrage point on the microblogging site. However, after it went massively viral on social media, BJP MP later deleted the tweet.
“95% of Arab women have never had an orgasm in the last few hundred years! Every mother has produced kids as an act of sex and not love. @Tarek Fatah,” the now-deleted tweet read.
Twitterati slammed Surya and tweeted on this matter,
One of the users wrote, “The ball is now in @narendramodis court. @Tejasvi_Surya has done an unpardonable offense and now things are getting out of hand. It ll be a matter of shame for 130 crore Indians if #tejasvisurya isnt sacked from parliament & made to apologize for his sinful remarks n debauchery,(sic).”
Mejbel Al Sharika, a Kuwaiti lawyer and Director of International Human Rights, shared the screenshot of the tweet and wrote: “Dear @Twitter, this Indian politicians @Tejasvi_Surya has racially slurred Arab women, I wonder how is his account still active? Is it not against Twitter’s official policy? Please act as Arab sentiment has been badly wounded.

Just heard criticism of @Tejasvi_Surya recent tweet. So the polemic point is, if unveiling the monstrous reality of blatant disdain of dignity & sexual ethics by man is cheap/bigot/misogynistic then what unilateral divorce, polygamy, Nikah halala & patriarchal dominance means? pic.twitter.com/7y4Xe2Joxb
