Mumbai: Radhe Maa enjoys a strong following in India including several B-town celebs. While many have stayed mum on the issue, others have spoken for and against her. The 'god woman' whose controversial photographs recently surfaced on the social media has faced criminal allegations.
However, singer Sonu Nigam, known to be quite a religious person, decided to bat for Radhe Maa on Twitter. He questioned the set of rules which give male saadhus more leeway in terms of dressing and behaviour and went on to compare Radhe Maa to Kaali Maa. The absurd comparison didn't go down well with Twitterati and flak started pouring in.
Just my 2 pence. Kaali Maa is depicted in lesser clothes than Radhey Maa. Interesting that this country wants to sue a woman for her clothes— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) August 16, 2015
Men Saadhus can walk naked. Dance embarrassingly, but it takes a rape charge to put them behind bars. So much for Gender equality? :)— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) August 16, 2015
Wanna sue, sue the followers... Sue YOURSELVES.. For making them God men and women. Setting different rules for men and women, not fair.— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) August 16, 2015
