Samajwadi Party MP Azam Khan courted controversy in Lok Sabha on Thursday for making a sexist remark on Rama Devi, BJP MP from Bihar.

Lok Sabha witnessed to a pandemonium over Azam Khan’s sexist remark during the Triple Talaq debate. Participating the debate over Triple Talaq bill, Samajwadi Party MP Azam Khan told Rama Devi, "Aapki aankhon mein aankhein daalke baat karne ka man karta ha [Feel like speaking to you while looking into your eyes]".

When BJP MP Rama Devi raised objection towards Azam Khan’s remark, the Samajwadi Party leader replied, "You are like my sister". Though the members of the House demanded an apology, Azam Khan did not relent.
