Sona Mohaptara reacts to trolls who commented on Ira Khan’s bikini pics

Sona Mohapatra recently addressed social media users who chastised Ira Khan, Aamir Khan‘s daughter, for wearing a bikini to her birthday pool party. Since then, she has been subjected to much trolling. Some even dragged her mother into it.

Mohapatra took to Instagram to criticise patriarchy after social media users began to comment on Ira’s choice of attire in the presence of her parents, writing, “Please keep in mind that Ira Khan is 25 years old and that her outfit choice has nothing to do with what #AamirKhan said, did, or did not do in the past. A mature, independent woman. Is exercising her right to choose. It does not require her father’s or your permission.”

“The 24/7 troll brigade in the last 24 hours in the garb of ‘sanskaari’ custodians of our ‘culture’ have showcased their own ‘sanskaar’ by asking me to pose naked in the public, then even extended this courtesy to my 70-year-old mother, who has no voice or say in this conversation,” she said, opening up about being trolled for her post. “All within the last twenty-four hours after I chastised them for trolling a young woman whose birthday party I attended over the weekend,” she added.

The 45-year-old has spent the majority of her time since then deleting such comments and applying filters to her page, as she explains: “Despite having the strongest profanity filters enabled on my pages, I have been continuously deleting garbage.”

She emphasised the importance of challenging this mentality in order to change how women are treated in society in this passage. “We have also received horrifying reports of gang rapes in various parts of the country in recent days. What is the connection, one wonders? These heinous crimes were brought to light because brave girls reported them, are seeking justice, and are not sweeping them under the rug like so many others.”

“Even normalising such trolling and shaming of young women on the Internet for their clothing choices strengthens and encourages a**holes and misogynistic behaviour not only online, but also in real life. Because, in the end, this sick online behaviour is nothing more than a reflection of societal mindsets,” she concluded.
