Smriti Irani thinks that giving women equality is equal to ‘disrespecting god’. She thinks that god is fearful of menstruating women. She gave a statement on Sabarimala issue which is not only against Supreme court verdict, its also against the spirit of gender equality.
Smriti Irani said, “Would you take sanitary napkins soaked in menstrual blood into a friend’s home? So why would you take them into the house of God?”
I have right to pray,but not right to desecrate.I am nobody to speak on SC verdict as I'm a serving cabinet minster. Would you take sanitary napkins soaked in menstrual blood into a friend's home? So why would you take them into the house of God: Smriti Irani on #SabarimalaTemple pic.twitter.com/lueaHNCITF

According to her women are impure when they are menstruating and should refrain from entering into a temple. This statement is misogynist and patriarchal. A women cabinet minister has given this statement.
This is the same cabinet minister who rejoiced on other stands of government which seemed to be in favour of women rights. Smriti Irani was in favour of Modi government stand on Triple Talaq.
Hypocrisy of female cabinet minister is questionable which beleives that menstruating women are ‘untouchables’. Will she say sorry to those women who are fighting to get equal rights?
