Will you cleanse every place I visit, Prakash Rai to BJP

 In reaction to the BJP Yuva Morcha 'cleansing' the stage with cow urine after his speech at Sirsi in Uttara Kannada district, actor Prakash Rai asked if they would do so everywhere he went.

On Tuesday, Rai shared on Twitter a clipping of a report in 'Prajavani' about the incident. He wrote: ``BJP workers cleaning and purifying the stage ..from where I spoke in Sirsi town ...by sprinkling cow urine (divine gomoothra)...will you continue this cleaning and purification service where ever I go.....#justasking (sic).''

Rai had spoken at an event held at the Raghavendra Mutt in Sirsi on Saturday, titled 'Our Constitution Our Pride'. In his speech, he criticised Union Minister Anantkumar Hegde's comment about changing the constitution.

Following this, on Monday, the BJP workers 'purified' the venue by cleaning it with cow urine.

"The presence of people who eat cow meat and insult Hindu deities has made the whole city of Sirsi impure. Society will not forgive Prakash Rai. This is why we have to clean this religious space," BJP Yuva Morcha Sirsi unit president Vishal Marathe had said.

The actor's tweet was liked by over 1,500 people and tweeted more than 440 times.
