Mumbai: "Motormouth" Samajwadi Party leader Abu Azmi is in the news once again, and for all the wrong reasons. Abu Azmi on Monday asked: "Why didn't Karan Johar get married?", a day after Karan Johar took to twitter to apprise the world that he had welcomed two children in his life through surrogacy.

"There are a number of women in the industry, he could have married anyone or at best, he could have adopted poor kids," Azmi said.

"I am ecstatic to share with you all two of the most beautiful additions to my life, my children, and lifelines Roohi and Yash. I feel blessed to be a parent to theses pieces of my heart," Karan had announced on Sunday.

Taking a dig at Karan Johar, Azmi said: "He is old now. Can't he get married? If he had any medical issue, he could have adopted. Why this surrogacy theatrics?"

However, this was not the first instance when Azmi issued an objectionable remark. Reacting to assault on women on the New Year's Eve in Bengaluru, Samajwadi Party leader from Maharashtra had blamed the 'attire' of the women for attacks.

"In these modern times, the more skin women show, the more they are considered fashionable. If my sister or daughter stays out beyond sunset celebrating December 31 with a man who isn't their husband or brother, that's not right," Abu Azmi had said, adding that "if there's gasoline, there will be fire. If there's spilt sugar, ants will gravitate towards it for sure".

However, after drawing flak from all quarters for his comments, Azmi had sought to clarify his stand. "I am not against the freedom to women, but we need to take precaution," he said.

Two years ago, Abu Azmi had said that women should be punished for being raped.
