Ugly face of Hinduphobic Feminism
A face of what the propaganda-based Feminism really means, was seen again on social media yesterday. Two photographs taken by a photographer suddenly started going viral yesterday. In one, the model is dressed in a saree and in the other the girl is seen in a nun's dress.
The reason for the pictures of the photographer being viral is just the sari photo. It can be seen how she insulted the traditional dress sari of Hindus. In the picture, we can see that the sari has been cut off from the bottom and the model is looking at the camera with scissors in her hand.
A photographer named Yami uploaded this photo on social media on 8 March 2020. The same day, which is celebrated internationally as Women's Day. The same day when there is talk of women empowerment everywhere.
Yami posted a few photos of this photoshoot on Instagram on the same day and wrote a caption wishing women day, "Break the stereotypes" below a photo. In the other picture, "Why fit in when you were able to stand out"
These photos are being criticized a lot on social media. Some people say that the culture of Hindus is directly attacked. Some people ask why is there so much ruckus about the photographer, the woman seen in the picture is just a model.
Let me tell you, after seeing this picture, it is a question whether the ruckus caused by the picture is unnecessary or should not be highlighted so much in modern times. Look at the other photo uploaded on Yami's account. It is also being shared indiscriminately on social media. In it, the girl is wearing a nun dress and is photographed with a smile on her face.
It is not only about the photo. See the difference in the caption as well. By cutting the sari up to the knees where Yami considers it to be the 'break the stereotype' and understand why to stay inside when you can see the outside. On the nun's dress picture, she writes, "By his grace .. will enjoy life and love each other until his kingdom (kingdom) comes".
The point to consider is how different is the opinion of a photographer about both costumes? Those who feel that this work is still done only in terms of profession. They should think that in a picture the model is shown wearing a religious outfit and calling for God. In the second picture, the model, such a dress which is directly related to Hindu culture and Indian civilization, is said to be breaking the image of conservatism.
In such a kind of feminism, notice that it is not restricted to them to cover themselves from head to toe in any dress, unless they are related to Hinduism. For such pseudo-feminism, cutting the dress with scissors means fighting patriarchy as soon as a dress is associated with Hindu culture.
Therefore, the question that must be asked by looking at such pictures is whether such models, or such photographers, can clearly state on their account that before their fight against this patriarchy, their feminism will only reveal the beliefs related to Hinduism She goes.
If not, I cannot write. So why don't these stereotypes break with every dress clippings? Why such a blow on the dress of Hindus? Why a model is ideal in a nun's dress? Why are burqas not considered part of the stereotype? Why only the definition of conservatism gets limited to sari and veil?
Speaking of the present time, today the sari has spread its beauty even in foreign countries. The women who have to represent India at the global level make all sarees their priority. It is clear that this dress not only reflects the culture of Hindus but also the civilization of India. Then why such a disgusting effort in the name of feminism or in the name of women empowerment? After all, how empowerment of a girl in a nun's dress is possible and not in a sari-like dress.
India has incorporated many foreign cultures within itself. The creation of Western culture is also at its peak here. Despite this, if such efforts are not called anti-Hindu propaganda, then what will be said. It may be a part of someone's idea to consider saree as regressive, but the same person's understanding that such clothes associated with other cultures are progressive and give pleasure to the woman is only an example of pseudo feminism with propaganda and not a problem with stereotypes. Is from Hinduism.
The thing to think is if shorts and skirts are not available in the market as an option if we have to break stereotypes by just showing legs. Why don't we become stronger by wearing them. Why do we need to play with this thousands of years old civilization of India?
Remember, some videos went viral on social media recently. A bride was seen wearing shorts under a blouse and dancing before the wedding. But, as soon as she reached her wedding pavilion, her dress there was the same one that ordinary brides have. Its meaning is clear that modern girls also know the meaning of Indian clothing. The bride also broke several stereotypes by releasing the video, but she did not marry by making her skirt short. The girl knew what the beauty of Indian wear meant.
Keep in mind that in democratic India, any woman has equal freedom as men. Here they will be empowered only by fighting the patriarchy which considers them not to be left out of the four walls. Not with such pseudo feminism. To get rid of the costumes, if it is to defeat patriarchy, then this kind of experiment is also necessary on burqa or hijab. But, it will probably never happen, because such so-called progressive women know what will happen if such creativity is shown with the methods of a particular religion. They know where the injury is the safest and from whom they will get fame in other communities.
