Tamil women should practice sati. Sati is a tradition of the Tamils. Tamil women should practice it again. There is no point in a woman living after the death of her husband – Narayanan Tirupati
Tamil Nadu BJP spokesperson Narayanan Tirupati said, “Sati is a tradition of Tamils. Tamil women should practice it again. There is no point in a woman living after the death of her husband”, claimed a news card of the News 7 Tamil channel which is being shared on social media.
What is the truth?
There was no news on the News 7 Tamil social media pages that BJP Narayanan Tirupati had said that Tamil women should practice sati again. It is fake edited news.
When we contacted Nirmal Kumar, the IT Wing Head of the Tamil Nadu BJP, about the rumours circulating about Narayanan Tirupati, he replied, “This is fake news.”
BJP spokesperson Narayanan Tirupati did not say sati is a tradition of Tamils, Tamil women should practice it again. It is a rumour that he said women were useless after their husband’s death.
