Azmi Shabana, says she had never made any such comments. Reacting to the viral message she said on the twitter “I have NEVER said this. It is DISGUSTING what trolls will stoop to polarise and communalise an already charged atmosphere. I work for all women irrespective of their religion.”

However, the old facts of her speech are not supporting her claim. We found an old tweet of her posted on Twitter, back on 29 Sept 2019. Where she posted a similar tweet and said, “This Durga Asthami lets pray that no Durga is aborted, no Saraswati is stopped from going to school, no Lakshmi has to beg for money from husband, no Parvati is sacrificed for dowry and no Kali is given a tube of fairness cream”. Indeed the old tweet of her is much similar to the current viral message.

If you translate the Hindi version of the tweet to English, it holds almost the same meaning of her old tweet. Therefore, the Hindi quote is made with some minor changes. Therefore, we conclude that a similar message was posted from the official Twitter handle of Shabana Azmi.
