I see many intellectuals, social reformers, Hinduism experts propagating why Karwa Chauth is the most evil festival in world.
Some liberals see it as anti-woman and regressive but
find women-liberation in burqa and minority-rights in triple talaq and halala.
I never saw them utter a word against polygamy practitioners.
Many Vedic reformers are explaining why remaining hungry for day is most life-threatening practice in world. I have personally seen them fighting and farting in Rishi Langar queues to get one more kachauri and chhola bhatura.
Karwa Chauth is an all-woman affair with no interference whatsoever from men. I find it utterly insensitive to ridicule the sentiments of a woman towards her husband. If you don’t want to follow it, don’t follow. But if you ridicule, then expect the same ridicule for sentiments that may be dear to you.
If you are indeed a social reformer, stand up and join Agniveer in its mission to destroy those social practices that threaten entire humanity. Know your priorities. Cultivate emotional intelligence.
