NEW DELHI: Union Cabinet Minister Smriti Irani has expressed anguish over attempted bullying of her daughter. Condemning bullying, she wrote a post on Instagram of her daughter on Friday attaching a selfie of her daughter. Smriti strongly claimed on the post: "She is Zoish Irani and I am proud to be her mom."

Smriti's post apparently concerned a bullying incident involving her daughter by her classmates. On Thursday, Smriti had deleted Zoish's picture after posting it, but after a short gap, shared it again with a strong message against bullying.

The picture was initially deleted because Zoish was bullied in school by a classmate, after Smriti posted it on the Instagram. Later, Zoish had requested her mother to delete the picture. Smriti reluctantly acceded to her wish.


It is apparent that Smriti was unhappy removing the picture from the social media platform, though she removed it initially ; eventually she decided against it. Re-posting the picture, she said her daughter will fight back.

"I deleted my daughter's selfie yesterday coz an idiot bullied in her class, Jha, mocks her for her looks & tells his pals in class to humiliate her for how she looks in her mother's insta post. My child pleaded with me 'Ma please delete it, they are making fun of me'. I obliged coz I could not stand her tears," Smriti wrote in the post.
