Woman Sadhu protests against denial of bathing rights

Wed, Apr 27, 2016, 05:59 PM
A woman Sadhu leading an all-female Pari Akhara has resorted to a burial protest in the Kumbh Mela in Ujjain following the denial of bathing right to her group in the holy waters.

The Pari Akhra founder, Trikal Bhawanta, demanded the bathing right in the holy waters, which was denied to her group. In protest, the women's akhra got a deep pit dug up in which she sat doing meditation. Her followers, young and old and male and female, then started throwing petals and dust into the pit with a view to burying her.

The police, however, intervened while her followers clashed with the police. The police managed to ward off the resistance in the fight in the dug-out and brought the woman sadhu out.

Significantly, the woman sadhu was not at all disturbed by the clash with the police by her followers. She continued her meditation undisturbed.

The Pari Akhra comprising wandering women sadhus in saffron cloth was formed in 2000, and they have been visiting many holy places.
