In a world where fashion choices ignite passionate debates, actress Uorfi Javed unapologetically dances to her own tune. Embracing bold and risqué clothing, she constantly faces the ire of public trolls. However, she stands tall, refusing to let anyone 'police' her style. 

Recently, a video capturing a public shaming incident involving Uorfi at the airport went viral, showcasing the dark side of society's obsession with policing women's wardrobes. In the video, a man passing by made disrespectful comments about her green backless outfit, attempting to shame her for her clothing choices.

In a now-viral video shared by Bollywood paparazzo Viral Bhayani, the man publicly commented, "India ka naam kharab karti ho aise sab pehenne se (You spoil India’s name by wearing such clothes).

Unfazed, Uorfi responded with confidence, "Toh aapke baap ka kuch jara hai?…Uncle jao apna kaam karo" (So what do you have to do with it?…Uncle, mind your own business)."

Yet, the man persisted, further infuriating the actress, who rightfully demanded respect.


Why are we against self-expression?

However, the incident didn't end there. As the news spread on social media, it triggered a storm of opinions. While some echoed the man's narrow-minded views, others passionately defended Uorfi's right to self-expression. Unfortunately, this scenario reflects a widespread issue where some Indian men feel entitled to pass judgement on women's attire.

One netizen highlighted the problem, stating, "Too many Indian men think they have a right to comment on random women. And they find accomplices very easily. The comments on this video show how such disrespect has been normalised." The incident shed light on the pervasive issue of women being judged and harassed based on their clothing choices, calling for a collective reevaluation of such behaviour.

In the midst of the heated discussion, another observer humorously pointed out the man's hypocrisy, questioning his strictness about dress while he himself sported modern clothing. This comment humorously highlighted the double standards often faced by women when it comes to their fashion choices.

This incident once again sheds light on the distressing reality of women facing judgement and harassment for their clothing choices. It raises a crucial question - isn't it time for a change? It's essential to challenge such a toxic mentality and embrace a society where self-expression is celebrated, and everyone's dignity is respected.

Uorfi Javed's unyielding response to the airport incident and the support she received from fans highlight the importance of standing up against judgement and embracing individuality. It is high time for society to break free from archaic norms and celebrate the diversity of fashion choices without fear of harassment.
