The controversy over recent Sabarimala verdict of Supreme Court is never-ending. It even got murkier with the remarks made by Union Minister Smriti Irani recently. She had opined that one should not take menstrual blood soaked sanitary pads into the Temple. This was in response to media reports that one female activist Rehana Fathima, while entering Sabarimala temple, was intentionally carrying a used sanitary pad, soaked with menstrual blood. “I have the right to pray, but don’t have the right to desecrate”, Smriti Irani had reportedly said. However, her comment was widely misinterpreted and many came up with their own interpretations in an attempt to politicize the incident.
