Bhuj (Gujarat): After hitting headlines for stripping girl students to check if they are menstruating, the Saminarayan sect is in news again and this time because of a preacher attached to the sect who claims that menstruating women who cook end up becoming dogs in their next life!
Videos from preachings of one Krushnaswarup Dasji -- the spiritual leader of the Swaminarayan Bhuj Mandir sect, whose followers run the Bhuj hostel of SSGI college, where the students were stripped shows the regressive mentality that is still so strong in our society.
"If you eat food prepared by a menstruating woman even once then your next avatar will definitely be that of an ox. A menstruating woman who cooks food for her husband will certainly be reborn as a kutri’ (bitch)," the preacher says in his video, reports Indiatoday.in
He justifies his statement saying that these rules have been outlined in the shastras.
The preacher also calls upon men to learn to cook so that women do not break this rule.
