|Controversy||In 2013, while giving a lecture in a college, he passed a derogatory comment against women, he said,
Good children are born to those men and women who live their lives as men and women. But, when a woman degrades her womanhood and a man degrades his manhood, the girl child born to the couple will have the character of a man. The child that she eventually gives birth to, will be born transgender.”
After hearing such comment, one of the girls present at the event walked out in disgust. Later, he repeated the same statement in an interview with the news channel. The Government of Kerala has denounced him for passing the sexist comments publically. Outlook India
