My Remarks On Surrogacy Not Aimed at Priyanka, Nick: Author Taslima Nasreen

New Delhi: Author and feminist Taslima Nasreen, who kicked up a storm following her ‘readymade babies’ remark, reacted after critics claimed that it was directed towards Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas after the couple announced that they recently welcomed a baby through surrogacy.

On Saturday, the couple took to their respective Instagram accounts to share the news. “We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate. Thank you so much,” Priyanka and Nick posted.

 

Nasreen tweeted how do those mothers feel when they get their “readymade babies through surrogacy?” She further added that do the mothers “have the same feelings” for the babies like the mothers who give birth to the babies?

 

The author faced massive backlash on social media with users slamming her in the comment section, even demanding to ban her Twitter account.

In response, Nasreen said that her comments were not meant for the Hollywood stars. She said, “My surrogacy tweets are about my different opinions on surrogacy. Nothing to do with Priyanka-Nick. I love the couple.”

She also said that “many support surrogacy as ‘individual choice’, but do not support any ‘individual opinion’ if that opinion is critical of surrogacy.”

“Some intolerant folks went further to ban my twitter handle. Actually, they do not support anything ‘individual’, they support collective arrogance,” said the author.
