Mumbai: Union Minister for Textiles Smriti Irani on Tuesday spoke about women under the menstrual age visiting Sabarimala Temple on Tuesday. Speaking at the ‘Young Thinker Conference’ in Mumbai, Irani said,
“I have right to pray, but not right to desecrate. I am nobody to speak on SC verdict as I'm a serving cabinet minister. Would you take sanitary napkins soaked in menstrual blood into a friend's home? So why would you take them into the house of God.”
The Supreme Court had on September 28, in its verdict, lifted the ban on women under 10-50 years of age entering Sabarimala.
