Indore: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat has again sparked off a controversy. This time the RSS chief raised questions on the sanctity of the institution of marriage by saying that married women should limit themselves to household chores.
"Marriage is nothing more than a social contract where the husband promises the wife food and security while the wife will take care of the household duties. If the wife fails to deliver, the husband should leave the wife," Bhagawat said. Watch: Mohan Bhagwat triggers fresh controversy | Rapes occur in 'India', not in 'Bharat': RSS chief Bhagwat
Earlier, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat has triggered a fresh controversy when he said, "Such crimes (rapes) hardly take place in 'Bharat', but they occur frequently in 'India'.
He criticised 'western' lifestyle of people in urban areas and said that rape is prevalent mainly in cities where Indians are deeply influenced by western values and not by rural India.
"You go to villages and forests of the country and there will be no such incidents of gangrape or sex crimes. They are prevalent in some urban belts. Besides new legislations, Indian ethos and attitude towards women should be revisited in the context of ancient Indian values," Bhagwat said.
