Yoga guru Ramdev today came out in support of women activists seeking to break gender bias and enter the sanctum anctorum of Shani temple in Maharashtra, saying there should not be any discrimination against women in any religion.
“There should not be any discrimination against any woman in any religion. This is against the spirit. This is wrong,” he said.
He was responding to a question on campaign by Ranaragini Bhumata Brigade whose plan to offer prayers at the sacred platform in Shani Shingnapur temple in Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra was foiled on Republic day.
The activists, who tried to head to the popular temple defying prohibitory orders to worship the deity, were detained by police for a few hours and released in the evening.
