Science has changed its plot, if Swami Krushnaswarup Dasji of Swaminarayan Bhuj Mandir is to be believed. According to Swamiji, if menstruating women cook, “they will be born as kutri (bitch) in next life”. Preacher in the streets, misogynist in the deets, the self-styled godman has also added that if a man were to consume the food prepared by a menstruating woman, his “next avatar would definitely be that of a balad (ox)”.
ISRO might be sending female robots to space, but the view from up there surely looks dismal, while gazing upon Swamiji’s unfazed assertions. Swamiji, probably, has missed the memo on the legitimacy of gender equality being a universally accepted truth – at least in the 21st Century – but Twitter users are pulling no punches while reminding him of the same.
Forget ‘flying cars’, one user commented, this, right here (the implications that Swami Krushnaswarup’s sexist comments hold), is the reality. Another user asserted that “in our next lives, we will see a lot of cross-breeding between Oxen and Dogesses (sic)”.
Here’s taking a look at how exasperated Twitter users brought the palms of their hands to their faces.
