Kailash Vijayvargiya, the BJP general secretary, has again sparked a controversy. Currently, a video taken on Hanuman Jayanti has gone viral. In the video, Kailash Vijayvargiya says, girls who wear “dirty clothes” look like Shurpanakha, a demoness from the Hindu epic Ramayana. “When I go out at night and see young people intoxicated, I feel like giving them five-seven [slaps] to sober them up. I swear to God,” he said.
Kailash Vijayvargiya, the BJP general secretary, made the remarks at a religious function organized in Indore on Thursday to mark the birth anniversaries of Lord Hanuman and Mahavir.
“And the girls wear such dirty clothes… we think of women as goddesses… there’s no trace of that in them. They look like Shurpanakha. God has given you a good body, wear nice clothes. Please teach your children well, I am very worried,” he added.
The BJP leader, who belongs to Indore, is known for his controversial statements made with impunity. Last month, he claimed that after Independence and Partition, whatever was left of India constituted a “Hindu Rashtra”, brazenly defiling the country’s founding principle of secularism.
Addiction a matter of concern
Kailash Vijayvargiya added that our Indore is number one in everything, but the way drug addiction has kept the young generation stuck in the past is a matter of concern for our future of tomorrow. So we should give good culture to children. Meanwhile, Kailash Vijayvargiya appealed the youth saying that they are the future of the country, if their behavior is moderate and balanced then they can give golden contribution to the nation.
