Textile Minister Smriti Irani landed in a soup after she made an insensitive remark on Sabarimala issue. The Union minister, in the middle of a fierce debate over the ban on women of menstrual age entering Kerala’s famous Sabarimala shrine and a Supreme Court order overturning it, said that everyone has a right to pray, but not to desecrate.

“I am nobody to comment on the Supreme Court verdict but I believe I have the right to pray, but not the right to desecrate,” Smriti Irani, 42, said at an event in Mumbai called the Young Thinkers’ Conference.

“Would you take sanitary napkins steeped in menstrual blood and walk into a friend’s home? You could not. And would you think it is respectable to do the same thing when you are walking into the house of God? So that is the difference,” said the minister.
