Those who don’t want to say ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ should be dumped into Indian Ocean: Sadhvi Prachi

Shirdi: VHP leader Sadhvi Prachi on Saturday said here women should be allowed entry into temples but they may be restricted during the periods.

Speaking to reporters after visiting the Sai Baba temple here, Prachi said not allowing women in temples in the modern times is wrong.

“However, the entry of women can be restricted for five days of month during their periods,” she said.

Lashing out at those who do not want to say ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’, she said such people “should be thrown out of the country or dumped into the Indian ocean”.

The trustees of Shani temple at Shingnapur in Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra yesterday allowed women to enter its core area for the first time following an agitation and a High Court order.

Supporting the women’s agitation for gaining entry into religious places, Prachi said those discriminating against the women must realise they “didn’t fall out of sky or emerged from the earth” and it was a woman which gave birth to them.

She also deplored the practises such as triple talaq among the Muslim community.
