Kochi: Sunni leader Kanthapuram A P Aboobacker Musliar's controversial remarks against gender equality have triggered a strong reaction from parties and activists who demanded that he withdraw them and apologise. Opposition CPI(M) and ruling Congress lashed out at the Islamic scholar over his "anti-women" remarks.

Marxist veteran and state Opposition leader V S Achuthanandan alleged that Musliar's remarks were equal to the "anti-democratic" stand of Sangh Parivar and they should be withdrawn.

"His remarks amount to insulting even his (Kanthapuram's) own mother. The statements were equal to the anti-democratic stand of Sangh Parivar. He should withdraw it and tender an apology to women community," Achuthanandan said. KPCC president V M Sudheeran termed Musliar's statements as "unwarranted" and "anti-women" and said he should withdraw them.
