Bachchan, the brand ambassador of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao (Save daughters, educate daughters) had astonishingly chided a reporter on Friday when she asked him to comment on the recent rape cases.

When asked to comment on Kathua gang-rape and murder, Bachchan had told the journalist to not ‘bring up this issue.’ “Even discussing this issue feels disgusting, don’t bring up this issue. It is terrible to even talk about it,” Bachchan was quoted by ANI.

Pooja took to Twitter to remind Bachchan about his recent film, Pink, which was a story about a lawyer who had single-handed fought to deliver justice to three women, attacked by men. Bachchan had the character of the brave lawyer. Pooja wrote, “I can’t help being reminded of a film called . Can our images on screen please be reflected in reality?”

Pooja’s filmmaker father Mahesh Bhatt too posted an Urdu couplet by Gauhar Raza without mentioning Amitabh Bachchan. He wrote, “Woh jo Khamosh thay shaamil hain Zina mein mere Woh jo khamosh hain shaamil hain Zina mein mere (Those who were silent were complicit in my rape. Those who are still silent are also complicit in my rape.”

As reported by Janta Ka Reporter, Bachchan’s bizarre logic to justify his silence on the gang-rape and murder of 8-year-old child had earned him social media users’ ire. The famous actor has not responded to any criticism yet.
