Soumita Saha Opposes Politicisation Of Sanitary Napkins

Soumita Saha Opposes Politicisation Of Sanitary Napkins. The controversy over recent Sabarimala verdict of Supreme Court is never-ending. It even got murkier with the remarks made by Union Minister Smriti Irani recently. She had opined that one should not take menstrual blood soaked sanitary pads into the Temple. This was in response to media reports that one female activist Rehana Fathima while entering Sabarimala temple, was intentionally carrying a used sanitary pad, soaked with menstrual blood. “I have the right to pray, but don’t have the right to desecrate”, Smriti Irani had reportedly said. However, her comment was widely misinterpreted and many came up with their own interpretations in an attempt to politicize the incident.

Famed Singer from Kolkata, Soumita Saha has openly come out in support of Ms. Irani. In a statement, she said, “Used Sanitary Pads are unhygienic and pose a serious health risk. Those should be disposed of off immediately as it makes the person vulnerable to infections/diseases. Forget temple, these shouldn’t be taken anywhere apart from sewerage or designated waste disposal bins”.

“There is a reason why these are called Sanitary napkins. Using it for spreading insanitation is insane”, she quoted.

She has also criticized the so-called “feminists” for destroying the very essence of feminism. “Feminism never taught me to remain unhygienic. It never taught me to desecrate public places. A Woman offering used sanitary pads to God is practicing opportunism in the garb of Feminism. Would she accept if I gift her a Used Sanitary Pad? If not, she has no right to offer the same to anyone, let alone God”, she added.
