A Gujarat religious leader has said menstruating women who cook food for their husbands will be born as dogs in their next lives, while men who eat food prepared by women with periods will be reborn as bullocks.

Notably, Swami Krushnaswarup Dasji, who made these remarks, is associated with Swaminarayan Temple which runs a college in Bhuj whose principal and female staff had allegedly forced more than 60 girls to remove their undergarments to check if they were menstruating for "breaking a hostel rule that girls having their periods are not supposed to take meal with other inmates".

"....It is certain that men will be born as bullocks in their next life if they consume food cooked by menstruating women".

"I don't know if you don't like my views, but it's all written in our shastras. If a menstruating woman cooks food for her husband, she's probably going to be born as a female dog in her next life," Swami said while delivering a sermon in Gujarati, whose video went viral.

The swami belongs to "Nar-Narayan Devgadi" of Swami Narayan Sect.

The principal, the hostel rector and the peon of Shree Sahajanand Girls Institute (SSGI) were arrested on Monday for the alleged incident which occurred on February 11.

"Women don't realize that menstruation is like'' tapasya'' (penance), written in our shastras. I don't even like telling you all these things, but I have to warn you.

The time and place of the video clip cannot be known. Such videos of sermons are available on the temple''s dedicated YouTube channel.

As per the website of the Swaminarayan Temple, Krushnaswarup Dasji was initiated in the order in the year 1995.

SSGI, a self-financed college having its own hostel for girls, is run by a trust of the Swaminarayan Temple, Bhuj.

According to girl students, the incident occurred on February 11, when a woman staffer took more than 60 students to the washroom and made them remove their undergarments to check if they were menstruating.

A report from the University of Krantiguru Shyamji Krishna Verma Kutch had confirmed that the girls were tested because the hostel has a provision that girls who have their periods are not supposed to take meals with other prisoners.

However, hostel authorities had decided to check the girls after they came to know that some menstruating girls had broken the rule and took the meal.

Principal Rita Raninga, girls'' hostel rector Ramilaben Hirani, college peon Naina Gorasiya and one Anita Chauhan were arrested by the police under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). PJT PD NSK NSK NSK
