The ardent disciples of Dinanath Batra are at it again.
Now they are against Tamil writer Perumal Murugan who according to them has shamed the Indian women. In a novel which happens 100 years ago a married woman who is childless has sex with strangers for a child.
According to VHP activists in Tamilnadu the novelist has performed blasphemy, wounding the age old Indian morals and have demanded an apology from him.
Next they will demand an apology from Vyasa. Reason:
Santanu & Sathyavathy’s children, Chithrangadan and Vichithraviryan have no children (due to infertility.?). Sathyavathy calls her son from Maharshi Parasaran, the great Vyasa, and asks him to give children to her daughter in laws. Vyasa adopts the same old strategy which Perumal Murugan’s lady in the novel adopts for a child. Poor Vyasa like MF Hussain he too cannot enter India henceforth.
Now what has this story to do with Istanbul of Turkey. Wait please, had the city’s name been Istancow, these energetic activists would have gone to Turkey to fight for their HOLY cow.
