“Rebirth as dog if menstruating woman cooks food” says Swami Krushnaswarup Dasji

The problematic religious group runs the Bhuj institute in Gujarat where more than hostellers were forced to strip for a menses check

New Delhi: Swami Krushnaswarup Dasji of Swaminarayan Bhuj Mandir (Nar Narayan Dev Gadi) gets exposed by his misogynistic mindset of the religious group and its followers. The seer in a series of controversial remarks Dasji said, “If you eat food prepared by a menstruating woman even once, then your next avatar will definitely be of a ‘balad’ (ox) and a menstruating woman who cooks for her husband will certainly be reborn as kutri’ (bitch).

The problematic religious group runs the Bhuj institute in Gujarat where more than hostellers were forced to strip for a menses check. Around sixty-eight girls were pressured to remove their undergarments to check if they were menstruating.

Even as the controversy refuses to die down anytime soon, Swami’s statements have created shockwaves

The video clip in which these remarks were made has been culled from a speech that he gave a year ago to an audience

Dasji adds that this is the first time in 10 years that he is advising his followers. “Everyone will feel that I am strict but the saints have asked me not to talk about our religion’s secrets. But if I do not say then you will never understand,”.

He also said that men should learn to cook if they do not want to bear the negative effects of eating food cooked by menstruating women.
