‘Don’t pay us for mothering our own’: Kangana Ranaut opposes Kamal Haasan’s idea to make housework a paid job

Actress Kangana Ranaut on Tuesday opposed the proposal given by actor-politician Kamal Haasan to recognise household work as a salaried profession. The actress said this will be like reducing a home owner to an employee and trying to pay God for his creation.

“Don’t put a price tag on sex we have with our love, don’t pay us for mothering our own, we don’t need salary for being the Queens of our own little kingdom our home, stop seeing everything as business. Surrender to your woman she needs all of you not just your love/respect/salary,” Kangana tweeted on Tuesday.

Kangana’s tweet came in response to Congress MP Shashi Tharoor’s tweet, which read: “I welcome @ikamalhaasan’s idea of recognising housework as a salaried profession, w/the state govt paying a monthly wage to homemakers. This will recognise & monetise the services of women homemakers in society, enhance their power & autonomy & create near-universal basic income.”

Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) chief Kamal Haasan had promised to pay women homemakers a monthly wage for their domestic work in his seven-point agenda for the forthcoming 2021 Tamil Nadu Assembly polls.

Protesting against the idea, Kangana further shared in a separate tweet: “It will be worse to reduce a home owner to home employ, to give price tag to mothers sacrifices and life long unwavering commitment, It’s like you want to pay God for this creation, cause you suddenly pity him for his efforts. It’s partially painful and partially funny thought.”

“How can one compensate for the lack of love/respect for home makers by giving them money? What if the oppressor snatches it and becomes more overpowering? People who treat their mothers or wives like house maids need value system and conscience that’s why Dharma is the answer,” she added.
