WEAR BURQUA TO AVOID RAPE: MUDURAI MUTT

Inside India

The pontiff of Madurai mutt at Thanjavoor, Arunagirinatha Sri Gnanasambanda Desika Paramacharya Swamigal, popularly known as Ma­du­­rai Adheenam, has ap­pe­­aled to women to imp­ose self-discipline and we­ar purdah, like Muslim wo­men, while going out so as to avoid becoming victims of rape. “Women should refrain from wearing obscene dr­e­­s­­ses in the garb of fashion. They should we­ar dr­e­s­­ses that would cover their body completely, and exhibit their body on­ly to their wedded husbands.”

Meanwhile, the demand to implement Islamic laws in order to reduce sexual assault on women has been growing constantly. Political leaders as well as social activists are raising the issue very strongly.
