Kozhikode: Sunni AP-faction leader Kanthapuram Aboobacker Muslyar has clarified his controversial speech, saying that his pro-women statement has been deliberately distorted and misinterpreted.
“I stick to the statement that childbirth and upbringing of the children are of the noblest deeds we can ever think of. This pro-women statement has been deliberately distorted and misinterpreted, and quoted me as saying women are capable only of childbirth,” Kanthapuram said in a Facebook post.
He said his speech referred to was to giving special support and care for the women in a situation where they were kept apart from social sphere.
“I precisely said women have superiority over the men in certain aspects and traits, as the men have superiority over women in certain other aspects. To substantiate the argument of women have superiority over the men in certain aspects, I have given the example of only women can deliver kids (this was just one example in my speech among few other examples to substantiate my argument),” he said.
