The most worrying part about the comments section is, that we could see graduated men of professional courses such as Engineering, Medical, CA are proudly admitting that they are visiting the video for Khushbu. Other videos of Khushbu are also receiving similar reactions from men.

When we say there is definitely something wrong with the society, its true. 13k comments on this video and hardly a pinch of those comments are actually to thank that girl for helping you study assholes. Saddest part is this is not only video on YouTube with filthy comments.— Desi Quarantino (@rohitky77) September 14, 2020
Disgusting comments even after covering whole body and then they say women seduce men by wearing short clothes. 😡😡— Anu Jain. (@AnnuBhansaliAB) September 14, 2020
This is some real shit that women go through everyday everywhere .— Shreya Soni (@Shreyaa1703) September 14, 2020
We have seen people justifying woman harassment by reasoning the attire of the victim. Here, the woman was fully dressed and is teaching maths for class 9 students. Comment your views !!
