Saina Nehwal’s father demands an apology from Siddharth for his misogynist tweet

Yesterday, actor Siddharth made a criticizing statement against badminton player Saina Nehwal. On this Saina’s father, Harvir Singh Nehwal demanded an apology from the actor. Saina’s father Harvir Singh Nehwal told ANI, “I have gone through all the details. Whatever he(Siddharth) said is not right. I got to know that he is a big actor in the South. He used very wrong words against Saina. It’s very wrong for him to give such derogatory statements.”

“I spoke to Saina over phone and she said that she didn’t like someone writing about her. Even other organisations like National Commision for Women came in support and said that was very bad and never heard these type of words coming from a gentleman,’ said Harvir.

He further added saying, ‘We condemn the statement given by him and he should apologise for his actions, whether it has been given intentionally or unintentionally. It is not good for a woman to be called by these words’.

For the unversed, Siddharth retweeted a post of Nehwal on January 6 and wrote, “Subtle cock champion of the world… Thank God we have protectors of India. Folded hands. Shame on you Rihanna.” In the tweet, Saina had expressed her concern over the security breach of Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his Punjab visit. Her tweet read, “No nation can claim itself to be safe if the security of its own PM gets compromised. I condemn, in the strongest words possible, the cowardly attack on PM Modi by anarchists”.
