"Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity." - Martin Luther King
Politicians have the tendency to talk, talk and talk. Sakshi Maharaj, the MP from Uttar Pradesh, has yet again tried to dispel our ignorance with his vast sea of knowledge. This time, he sheds light on why rapes take place. It is because couples display love or as Maharaj calls it, ‘vulgar behaviour’.
“When these couples ride a motorcycle, they hug each other as if the girl will eat the boy or the boy will eat the girl,” he said. “Similarly, couples can be seen behaving in a vulgar fashion in cars, parks and other places. Everyone ignores them, but once rape happens, people demand action against the police, so the right thing would be to take action and put such couples behind bars,” he said while talking to reporters on Wednesday in Uttar Pradesh.
By holding the title of Acharya Mahamandleshwar of Shri Nirmal Panchayati Akhada, Maharaj is also a celibate. That makes him free of all the baser desires. Thereby, giving him tremendous insight into the functioning of the society. In the past, Maharaj had extended support to other godmen such as Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh and Asaram Bapu. However, after the sudden revelation, he has retracted his statements about them and criticized them for being ‘hypocrites’.
While overpopulation is a known phenomenon in India, Maharaj’s insight is to save the Hindu religion. Hence, he had urged Hindu women to produce at least 4 babies. He further substantiated his idea by saying that, "The concept of four wives and forty children just won't work in India".
If you thought Maharaj was being communal then you’re mistaken; he is very secular. He had claimed to be a ‘true Muslim’. Switching into the role of a historian, he went on to say that Prophet Mohammed was a great yogi. A truly learned fellow!
Politician, religious leader and now a historian! His findings were truly remarkable when he said, "The temple (Ram Mandir) was there and will exist forever. No person will be allowed to keep even a brick in the name of Babri mosque".
Religious leaders turned politicians bring to fore the immense intelligence and Uttar Pradesh seems to have the perfect conditions to breed such stalwarts. It was not long ago when Yogi Adityanath said, “Shah Rukh Khan should remember that if a huge mass in society would boycott his films, he will also have to wander on the streets like a normal Muslim...I am saying these people are speaking in a terrorist’s language.”Jai Sakshi Maharaj!
