CPM woman MP says Hindu women go to temples to display their bodies

    Former minister and CPI(M) central committee member PK Sreemathi MP has crossed all limits of decency and insulted temple-going Hindu women.

    While addressing the Vanita Avakasha Samrakshana Sangamam (Women Rights Protection Conference) in Pathanamthitta on October 9, she said that Hindu women who go to temples in wet clothes after taking dip in temple ponds do it thus to display their body parts to men in those temples. The controversial MP said men come to temples to enjoy this. She tried to enthuse the young girls present there saying that they did not know what happened in the past.

    The remarks triggered widespread outrage in a highly surcharged atmosphere of Kerala.
