Sri Lankan born first Canadian Tamil MP, Rathika Sitsabaiesan, 29, is at the centre of an embarrassing Photoshop controversy after authorities apparently deemed her cleavage too hot to handle, the Mail online reported.

According to political blog Contrarian, an enterprising reader performed an image search for Sitsabaiesan and came across the thumbnail.

But when the reader clicked through to Sitsabaiesan’s official Parliamentary profile, he found a modified version of the headshot, which had been retouched to edit out her feminine curves.

Canada’s conservative politicos apparently decided that the photo was inappropriate for a workplace as formal as Parliament.

But critics argue that the alteration was anti-feminist, and that the cleavage was removed to make Sitsabaiesan appear less womanly.

It was not known if the cropping was requested by her party, her own office, or on the Parliamentary website’s own authority.

    This is the state of world politics, when folk who are entrusted with the pressing problems of the their constituencies start splitting hairs about a woman's vital statistics and so-called feminists rights while the poor have hardly ANY clothing on their backs and food in their stomachs. Very much like Nero being obsessed with his fiddle while Rome burned to the ground!!!
