The President of the All Kerala Men’s Association, Vattiyoorkav Ajith Kumar, has sparked controversy with his remarks regarding the recent KSRTC bus nudity incident. Ajith Kumar took to Facebook to express his views after Savad, who was involved in the incident, was granted bail, claiming that justice had been served and that it was an eye-opener for the court.
In his Facebook post, Ajith Kumar called for a warm welcome for Savad upon his release and urged both men and women to show their support. He stated that many women had also come to realize Savad’s innocence and had reached out to him to express their thoughts on the matter. Ajith Kumar emphasized the need to prevent any man in Kerala from facing a similar fate and warned about the potential dangers of honeytraps in the state due to the availability of information and education.

However, Ajith Kumar’s statement also included derogatory remarks against the woman who had filed the complaint against Savad. He alleged that she had purposely targeted him and suggested that she had been on the lookout for a victim. Ajith Kumar’s comments insinuated that the incident was a result of a honeytrap and suggested that the woman had set a price for her dignity, implying that the video was a planned act.
Furthermore, Ajith Kumar called for the establishment of a Men’s Rights Commission in Kerala, arguing that there is no law in favor of men and that there should be a platform to address men’s grievances. He expressed dissatisfaction with the lack of punishment for women who file false complaints and urged Savad or his family to give the signal if they wished for him to intervene in the case, suggesting his involvement in legal proceedings alongside Advocate Aloor.
