Fairness creams promoting discrimination, says RS member

New Delhi, July 26 (IANS) Fairness creams available in the market are promoting discrimination on the basis of skin colour and also generating inferiority complex among women, Congress member Viplove Thakur said in the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday.

Raising the issue during zero hour, she said: “It is promoting discrimination on the basis of skin colour.”

“The say you apply the cream and you will become fair, and many women fall into the trap thinking it make them look beautiful. It is creating an inferiority complex in women,” said Thakur who was elected to the Rajya Sabha from Himachal Pradesh.

“It is also pitting women against each other,” she added.

Several members cutting across party lines expressed their agreement with Thakur’s view.
