After facing a backlash over her comments on the Sabarimala Temple issue, Union Minister Smriti Irani on Thursday took on her critics on the Instagram, posting her picture tied with ropes and mouth gagged with a cloth.

“Hum Bolega To Bolega To Bolta Hai (If I speak, you will say I speak too much),” she wrote a tongue-in-cheek caption with her post on the photo sharing site, hitting back at her trolls.

The picture posted by Irani on the Instgaram appeared to be from one of her soap operas in past during her stint in film and television industry.

Irani's post on the photo-sharing site attracted more than 11,000 likes and nearly 400 comments. Her close friend and film maker Ekta Kapoor called he a ‘rockkkkstaaaa’.

Irani recently stoked a controversy after she said while responding to a question on Sabarimala temple row at an event in Mumbai, that the right to pray did not mean the right to desecrate.

“I am nobody to speak against the Supreme Court verdict as I am a serving Cabinet Minister. But, just plain common sense is that would you carry a napkin seeped with menstrual blood and walk into a friend's house. You would not,” she said.

"And, would you think it is respectful to do the same when you walk into the house of God? That is the difference. I have the right to pray, but no right to desecrate. That is the difference that we need to recognise and respect," she added.
