Karnataka BJP unit used cow urine and tulsi leaves to “cleanse” a venue where actor Prakash Raj, a vocal critic of right-wing violence, and a few activists gave speeches.
“The kalyana mandapam is a sacred place where different religious programmes have been held for decades. The place lost its sanctity because of the entry of beef-eaters and abusers of Hindu religion,” a worker said.
Members of a Karnataka BJP unit used cow urine and tulsi leaves as they sought to “cleanse” a venue where actor Prakash Raj, a vocal critic of right-wing violence, and a few activists gave speeches this weekend.
Their motivation, they claimed, was the seminar participants “had an anti-Hindu mindset and most of them were beef eaters”. BJP workers of the party’s Sirsi unit, led by Rekha Hegde, district president of the women’s wing, and Vishal Marathe, president of BJP’s local youth wing, arrived at the venue, a wedding hall, auditorium on Monday and sprinkled ‘gomutra’ and spread basil leaves. “The kalyana mandapam is a sacred place where different religious programmes have been held for decades. The place lost its sanctity because of the entry of beef-eaters and abusers of Hindu religion,” a worker said.
The move set off a verbal war, with the actor wondering if the saffron cadres would continue their “purification service” wherever he went.
