Kyrgystan President’s daughter shares breast feeding pictures on internet – controversy follows
Aliya Shagieva, 20, the youngest daughter of Kyrgystan's President Atabayev has received a lot of backlash for sharing her breast feeding pictures.
Aliya has however not kept quiet and has hit back at her haters through her Instagram posts.
Aliya got married in September last year to her boyfriend Konstantin and had not revealed anything about her pregnancy till March, when she gave birth to the baby, Tagir.
She had posted a baby bump showing picture of her, wearing only her underwear on Instagram.
Aliya has continued to post pictures of her breastfeeding and her baby bump since then, much to the annoyance of the religious followers who found the images vulgar.
Aliya has however not paid any heed to their complaints and has kept on with the posts. In one of her posts recently, she wrote that what these religious people are doing is sexualizing of her breasts and discriminating one on basis of her parents' position.
She went on to write that people had reduced breasts as objects to cater to the male gaze and fantasy and have forgotten their real value.
She added that people should get rid of such gender stereotypes for the betterment of the society.
She has received a lot of support from a large number of her followers, she says.
However, according to media reports, several people are still not happy with what Aliya is doing and have continued to criticise her posts.
One commenter wrote about her father and husband's inability to tame her actions. Another said he finds her wearing only a knicker offensive, more than her breast feeding.
