Model celebrates criticism post complaint filed against Malayalam breastfeeding magazine cover

Popular Malayalam magazine, Grihalakshmi, recently published a controversial cover image which featured Malayalam actor-model Gilu Joseph breastfeeding a baby. The intention was to break the stereotypes around breastfeeding in open public and to bring awareness amongst people about breastfeeding their babies. While the campaign has been lauded by many, it has also drawn flak from some. Nobel Mathew, an advocate in Kollam, Kerala, has now filed a legal case against the Magazine for featuring the image. Though the complaints have been filed before a Kollam court and the Kerala State Child Rights Commission only against the Malayalam fortnightly magazine, Gilu Joseph is also being criticised for her decision to embrace a natural thing.
