'Good girls sleep early': former judge Markandey Katju faces flak once again

katju

Former Supreme Court judge Markandey Katju is no stranger to allegations of sexism and misogyny on social media. Known for his irreverent comments on several issues, especially when it comes to women.

And now, the jurist has hit headlines once again for acting creepy on Facebook. Katju, who has often been slammed for sexism, was seen getting overtly chatty with a woman who commented on one of his posts.

At one point, Katju asks the woman, "Not sleepy?" in a follow-up comment, he said, "I thought good girls go to sleep early."

Katju, who has in 2015 faced flak from feminists after he had compared BJP MP Shazia Ilmi and Kiran Bedi on who was more 'beautiful', seems to be a regular when it comes to offending sensibilities.

Katju was severely called out by women on Twitter.
