Raveena Tandon has supported Jaya Bachchan’s statement and stance in the Rajya Sabha. Not long ago, Jaya Bachchan had lambasted Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha member Yogesh Varshney in the Rajya Sabha when the latter had declared an Rs 11 lakh bounty for Bengal CM Mamta Bannerjee. In her criticism Jayaji had said, “How dare somebody talk like this and especially against a woman? When today women are feeling really insecure. Is this what you should be promoting? Aap log to saare akhbaron ko control karte hai, to iss tarah ke news kaise chap jata hai.”

Her statement of, “You can protect cows, but what about women?” resonated with many women across the country. Likewise, Raveena Tandon, who’s always been an open supporter of the fight for women’s rights and equality, has come out in support of Jaya Bachchan’s stand. Raveena’s next film Matr is a hard hitting take around motherhood and women as well. She told an online portal, “I know her (Jaya Bachchan) quote and I strongly support and stand by her. I do believe that the government has come and gone and changed but somewhere it has not made a difference as far as women security and safety is concerned. I strongly believe that if there can be a law passed, a life sentence for killing a cow then definitely a stronger and harsher law should be for the protection of women. They should prove to be a deterrent to these criminals and they should think not once but ten times before even thinking about doing anything like this. And yes, Jayaji in the Rajya Sabha said this and I am very proud of her… that someone is raising that kind of voice.”
