Divya Iyer held the child in his arms and spoke. But if some criticize the work done by Collector Iyer, others support it saying that it is the mind of the mother. The multiple roles played by women, including their husbands, support Iyer’s work, citing their right to spend their moments with children.
Collector Divya Iyer along with her son attended the closing ceremony of the three-day event on October 30. The video taken on the occasion was shared by Chittayam Gopakumar, deputy speaker of the state assembly and one of the organizers of the event, on his Facebook page. The video has now sparked controversy. But this video has been removed from his FB page. In this video, Divya is sitting on stage with her baby hugging her brother. Moreover. He can be seen standing up when he has to give a speech on the stage and talking affectionately with his little son.
In a Facebook post, Divya’s husband, former Congress legislator KS Sabarinadhan defended his wife. He said that working mothers do not need anyone’s sympathy.. but society should give them a positive opportunity to work. While many criticized Divya saying it was inappropriate for a high-ranking official to bring her child to a function, others supported the collector. Moreover, some netizens are recalling the fact that New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern brought her three children to the United Nations Peace Summit.
Renowned Malayalam writer Benjamin and social activist Dhanya Raman were among those who supported Collector Divya. The social media platform is requested to give all children a chance to grow up enjoying the love of their mothers.
Benyamin said that Iyer is not only a district collector but also a person who plays multiple roles like wife, mother, and friend. She also needs private moments. Collector also has the right to spend some time with her child.
He asked what was the objection to the mother taking the child with her while attending a private function. He also said, ‘Why are we unable to think about the rights of mothers and children?’ In many foreign countries, women show respect for their children by coming to public forums, parliaments, and legislatures. In our country, if an officer attends duty with his child, why is it considered wrong?
Some other netizens are criticizing the action of the collector by bringing the child to the public event. The woman officer has been severely criticized for “overacting”.
