In one of the pictures, Suhana is seen enjoying sun, sand, and surf wearing a brown bikini, posing alongside AbRam, her younger brother. Immediately the picture went viral, with most shaming her for “exposing” her body to the general public.
These are some of the comments by users who shamed her for wearing whatever she wanted to wear:
“Tum ye mat bhulo ki tum muslim ho (Dont forget you are a Muslim)”
“Shame of u suhana …joh karna hai karo.per indian culture ke ishaab seh post karo apna photo …yeh sab private rako.itna respect karta hun apke papa ko.. but I didn’t expected from you… (Shame on you Suhana…do whatever you want, but keep the Indian culture in mind. Keep these pictures private. I have so much respect for your father, but I did not expect this from you)”
Trolls always think that a woman should cover up, but the same trolls will go on a roll sending women unsolicited images of their private parts or asking them to “show bobs and vagens” [a play on show boobs and vaginas].
While there have been several times that actresses have responded to trolls with fitting messages, it’s high time people learn that women can wear whatever they want as long as it’s with their consent. It’s basic human rights and each time a woman is shamed, we take 10 steps back on the road to humanity.
