Nude Monk Addresses Haryana Assembly, Says Wife’s Duty To Accept Husband’s Discipline

In what could be a first in Indian politics, a nude monk waxed wisdom in a State Legislative Assembly on Friday, doling out advice on a wide range of subjects including the state of Indian politics, dealing with Pakistan, and how to prevent female foeticide.

Jain religious leader Tarun Sagar, who was invited by Education Minister Ram Bilas Sharma to kick off Haryana Assembly’s monsoon session, had lawmakers spellbound for 40 minutes, The Indian Express reported today.

On politics, Sagar said, “Dharam pati hai, rajneeti patni. Har pati ki yeh duty hoti hai apni patni ko samrakshan de. Har patni ka dharam hota hai ki woh pati ke anushasan ko sweekar kare.” (Duty is like the husband, politics is like the wife. It is the duty of every husband to protect his wife. It is the duty of every wife to accept his husband’s direction.”)
