Do you think it is one off stupidity and inhuman utterances by some bigots? If you have followed some of the India “sadhus” and “sadhvis” (that is “holy men” and “holy women” of the right wing Hindu society), you would surely be not surprised. While one elected parliamentarian right wing Sakshi Maharaj says that Nepal’s earthquake is because his political opponent visited the holy Hindu shrine in Kedarnath, another blind parliamentarian Sadhvi Pratchi says that because of cow slaughter Nepal had to suffer such a tragedy.
Now, who on earth with some sense and some humanity in their body and mind would utter such ridiculous statements, and especially at this moment of darkness?
True, but shameful!
HARIDWAR: Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Sadhvi Prachi kicked up yet another controversy when she came up with her logic on the recent earthquake that devastated Nepal.
Commenting the most unreasonable statement that could come at this tragic time, controversial BJP functionaries, Saksha Maharaj and Sadhvi Prachi have linked the earthquake in Nepal to Rahul Gandhi’s Kedarnath visit.
Speaking to media persons in Haridwar, Sakshi Maharaj said, “Rahul Gandhi eats beef and goes to the holy shrine without purifying himself, the earthquake was bound to happen.”
It may be mentioned here that the lady was in the news recently for calling the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi a British Agent.
She was the same lady who said, “Those who do not chant ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’, ‘Vande Mataram’, insult the national flag and those who indulge in cow slaughter have no right to live in India.” (Agencies)
