  • M M Hassan, acting president of Kerala Pradesh Congress committee,last week said  that a menstruating women is impure and must not enter a temple. Such statements shows the prevalence of old customs that restrict the girls from entering places of worship.
  • After his statement, people protested and one must know that delivering such statements hampers not only the health of an individual but also of the society.
