Spotted this post on my friend Bhaskar Dasgupta’s blog that details the latest instance of ‘Hindu’ ire. A series of clips:
It is absurd to refer to the episode of Radha-Krishna in the context of a case related to pre-marital sex. Sri Krishna, Bala Krishna was only 10 years of age when he left Brindavan for the Gurukulam in Sandeepani Ashram. The episode of Radha-Krishna occurred when Sri Bala Krishna was a child 10 years of age.
What is wrong with our educational system that even learned judges should refer to a seven-year old Shri Krishna and his being a darling of humanity and who enthralled Radha and other Gopikas has NOTHING to do with pre-marital sex since he was in Brindavan only until he was seven years of age.
Does a seven year old darling of Brindavan become an example of pre-marital sex in jurisprudence?
Why does all of this put me irresistibly in mind of Shahid Afridi? [And I hope I am not offending any “Hindu” sentiments here — even Afridi is not mythology].
