The Bharatiya Janata Party’s youth leaders in Karnataka sprinkled cow urine at the venue of a programme in Sirsi city where actor Prakash Raj spoke on January 14, The News Minute reported. This was a “purification ritual”, the outfit’s leader said.
Asked why they sprinkled cow urine, BJP Yuva Morcha President in Karwar Vishal Marate told the news website, “These people are self-proclaimed, pretend and left-leaning intellectuals, and have conducted a programme at a religious place and made it impure.” Marate said Raj spoke against their leader as well. “That’s why we purified the place with gau mutra.”
Referring to Raj, Marate said that people who “eat cow meat” and those who are “anti-Hindu” had turned the venue impure.
