The Lawyer who was representing the Delhi-based ashram of Virendra Dev Dixit said in the court that ‘women are the gateway to hell.’ A furious court warned him of severe action for his illogical and degrading comment.
The ashram belonging to Dixit has confined a large number of girls and Women in fortress-like premises. The court questioned the lawyer as to why only girls and women were left by their parents at this ashram.
The lawyer said that the parent left women because women are the gateway to hell as said by Shankaracharya. The court became furious and asked which Shankaracharya said this statement. The lawyer was unable to answer and the judge became furious on his irresponsible comment.
The other lawyers and officials in the court also murmured on this statement. The judge further concluded the hearing for that day and asked everyone related to this case to leave the place.
Delhi’s Government lawyer Rahul Mehra condemned the comment of the lawyer and demanded to verify the registration of the lawyer at the bar council. Several women exceeding hundred were confined in the ashram belonging to Dixit and the owner is absconding at present and is wanted in a CBI case. The police are searching for this person.
