Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s good side is getting him a lot of criticism, and he didn’t even have thought about it. The eloquent politician is again in the news because of his statement, and people do not like it.
What exactly happened?
At an event hosted by the University of Dhaka, Mr. Modi said while delivering the lecture, “I am happy to say that the Prime Minister of Bangladesh, despite being a woman, is saying boldly that she has zero tolerance toward terrorism. I would like to congratulate Sheikh Hasina for her firmness to deal with the menace.”
Though he made this comment to praise Sheikh Hasina but people on Twitter are criticizing it as ‘sexist’ and “chauvinistic”. Soon #DespiteBeingAWomen Started trending everywhere and people expressed their opinions regarding this statement.
And Twitter is flooded with mixed reactions!
I should be feeling better today. If a prime minister can be trolled, who are ordinary citizens like me? #DespiteBeingAWoman

#DespiteBeingAWoman is an insult of the worst kind! It makes women sound inferior to men & belittles all their hard work & achievements!

Btw nobody used #DespiteBeingAWoman for Malala Yousufzai. She did it despite being a woman no & faced it becoz she was a woman.
