He equated dharma to the husband and politics to the wife, suggesting that the latter should “accept the discipline” imposed by the former.

He recommended ways to eradicate female foeticide. He even took potshots at Pakistan. And all through the discourse that lasted 40 minutes, Jain religious leader Tarun Sagar had MLAs cutting across party lines at the Haryana Assembly listening in rapt attention.

Delivering his “Kadve Vachan” to mark the start of the monsoon session, the first such event organised at the Vidhan Sabha, the monk, who appeared in the nude, was seated on a dais, above the seats of the Governor, Chief Minister and MLAs.

Invited to speak by Education Minister Ram Bilas Sharma, Sagar said, “Rajniti par dharam ka ankush zaroori hai. Dharam pati hai, rajneeti patni. Har pati ki yeh duty hoti hai apni patni ko samrakshan de. Har patni ka dharam hota hai ki woh pati ke anushasan ko sweekar kare.

Agar rajneeti par dharam ka ankush na ho toh woh magan-mast haathi ki tarah… ho jaati hai (The control of dharma over politics is essential. Dharma is the husband, politics is the wife. It is the duty of every husband to protect his wife. It is the duty of every wife to accept the discipline of her husband. If there is no control of dharma over politics, it will be like an elephant out of control).”

Sagar identified female foeticide as a “big problem” that was disturbing the balance of society, leading to more crimes and rapes, and said that he had come up with a formula to tackle it at three levels — political, social and religious.

“At the political level, the government should decide that those who do not have daughters should not have the right to contest Lok Sabha and Vidhan Sabha elections. At the level of society, people should not marry their daughters into families that do not have daughters. At the religious level, saints should decide that they will not accept alms from houses where there are no daughters. The result will exceed expectations if this formula is followed. We are living in the 21st century. Even today, when boys and girls are differentiated, I feel we are living in the 14th century,” he said.

At this juncture, Sagar took a dig at Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, who is a bachelor, saying, “Khattar sahib ko ismense bahar kar do (Khattar should be kept out of this).”

Taking on politicians, Sagar said that the Parliament, which was set up to solve the country’s problems, has become the biggest problem. He claimed that according to a survey, 160 MPs have criminal cases registered against them and said that efforts should be made to ensure that criminal elements are “not able to climb the stairs of Lok Sabha and Vidhan Sabha”.

Terming terrorism as a major issue, Sagar said that no religion promotes terror. If the amount of government money that is spent on weapons is used for education, employment and healthcare, there would be a transformation, he said.

Taking potshots at Pakistan he said, “Humara padosi desh, sab ko maloom hai, atankvaad ko aasan de raha hai….bhasmasur paida kar raha hai… Bharat ko pareshan karne ke liye. Mujhe lagta hai aaj nahi toh kal bhasmasur tayyar kar raha hai apne liye. Ek baar galti kare woh agyan hai, do baar galti kare woh nadaan hai, teen baar galti kare woh shaitan hai aur jo baar baar galti kare woh Pakistan hai. Jo har baar shama kar de, woh Hindustan hai (Everyone knows that the neighbouring country is harbouring terrorism… creating Bhasmasurs to trouble India. If someone makes a mistake once he is ignorant, if someone makes a mistake twice he is innocent, if someone makes a mistake thrice he is the devil, and if someone makes a mistake repeatedly, that is Pakistan. And the one who forgives repeatedly is India).”

Sagar also praised the Narendra Modi government for prescribing a retirement age for active politicians, and had a word of advice for the Khattar government.”Agar humne Rishikesh mein Ganga ka shuddhikaran kar liya, toh Haridwar aur uske neeche ke tamaam ghat apne aap shudh hote chale jayenge. Agar satra ke pehle hi din aapne dharam ko apne yahan pe baitha liya, rajneeti ke tamaam ghaat apne aap shudh hote chale jayenge. Khattar sarkar par yeh aarop lag sakta hai ke ihno ne rajneeti ka bhagwakaran kar diya, par main aap se nivedan karna chahunga, yeh rajneeti ka bhagwakaran nahi hai balki rajneeti ka shudhikaran hai (If we manage to purify Ganges in Rishikesh, then Haridwar and all its ghats will automatically keep getting purified. If on first day of this session you place Dharma in the assembly, all the ghats of politics will automatically keep getting purified on their own. There may be allegations against the Khattar government that they have saffronised politics, but I would request you that it is not saffronisation of politics, rather it is the cleansing of politics),” he said.

      No body did this for last 70 yrs under islamochristian rule of cong. We have to understand that huge knowledge is parked in the heart of all our holy person. This knowledge is required most for our MPs and MLAs who are always playing politics all the time................its a speech for enlightment. Well done Mr Khattar. It shd also be done in schools and colleges once a month.

              Pressute IE is rattled that a non-muslim is allowed to address embly. But you must appreciate that this muni is far far better than mullas who favour triple-talaq and muslim personal law.

                The Christian Chaplain of the United States Senate opens each session of the United States Senate with a Christian prayer, and provides and coordinates religious programs and pastoral care support for Senators, their staffs, and their families. The Chaplain is appointed by a majority vote of the members of the Senate on a resolution nominating a Christian individual from Church for the position. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;The current Christian Chaplain, Barry C. Black, a retired Navy Rear Admiral and former Chief of Navy Chaplains, is the first African-American and the first Seventh-day Adventist Church to hold the position.

                  This is what Muslims do when they are in majority while they complain when they are in minority.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;In Indonesia, the press reported that the Banyuwangi, East Java regional legislature voted to oust from office Banyuwangi's Regent, Ratna Ani Lestari. Those in favor of the ouster accused Ratna, a Muslim by birth, of blaspheming Islam by practicing a different religion from the one stated on her ideny card. Ratna's supporters stated that she was the target of a religiously motivated smear campaign because of her marriage to a Hindu

                    One of the most advanced nation Australia which is secular opens its Parliament with Christian Prayers everyday. Under standing orders, each sitting of the House of Representatives or Senate begins with the reading of two prayers: a Christian prayer for the Parliament, and the Christian Lord’s Prayer.

                        Even though the Christian and Muslims in India says India is a secular country and should not respect greater Hiduism which comprises of Hindus Buddhists Jain Sikhs and other sects all coming from the same root they try not to highlight that the Christian and Islamic majority countries are all respecting their majority. Off course in Muslim countries minorities are treated like second cl citizens. More importantly how can the danger0us Vatican get away with being a country and a Christian church?lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Vatican hides some of the darkest secrets one can imagine.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Sedes Sacrorum (Latin for Holy Seat), known as the Holy See in English, is the seal of the Vatican City State. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Sedes Sacrorum (SS)lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;"The Roman Cult* which controls the Catholic Church maintains that the first person to use the concept of the Holy See was St. Peter. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;This of course, is impossible as the etymology of the word "Sedes" (See) and its ociated meaning were not in existence until hundreds of years after the execution of St. Peter in 70 CE at the Siege of Jerum."

                            Jealously guarding their pagan heritage and right to sacrifice people to their demon Christian gods, the Roman Catholic Christian priestly families were banished from Rome more than once along with the closure of the Vatican temple.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;"However, during the tumultuous periods in Roman history after the collapse of Rome as the center of the Empire, the pagan high priests umed the role as community leaders in Rome and during more than one period, openly returned to their pagan practices of child sacrifice, cannibalism and demonic worship as late as 590 to 752, 847 to 872 and even as late as 896, 1057 AD.

                              As a military order of the Roman Christian Catholic Church, the Knights of the Sedes Sacrorum (SS) were bestowed by the legal orders of the Roman Christian Pontiff on behalf of the Mother Vatican Christian Church to wage constant Holy Inquisition against all 'heretics', including inations, torture and counter-intelligence, to protect the name of the Holy Roman Catholic Church and directly represent the interests of the Holy See as its primary order of Holy Knights — the SS (Sedes Sacrorum or Holy See

                                  In a secular US, As you walk up the steps to the Capitol Building which houses the Supreme Court you can see near the top of the building a row of the world's law givers and each one is facing one in the middle who is facing forward with a full frontal view — it is Moses and the Ten Commandments! from the Christian Bible. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the two huge oak doors have the Christian Ten Commandments engraved on each lower portion of each door. As you sit inside the courtroom, you can see the wall right above where the Supreme Court judges sit a display of the Ten Commandments! lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;There are Bible verses etched in stone all over the Federal Buildings and Monuments in Washington, D.C.

                                        Nothing more then a staged drama to promote hind crime of hind uism racism, his words have no holiness but they c can be found in a basic book of social responsibility of the citizens of the state, This hin du out law need to learn to be with in the limit of human decency, then to show up in inhuman animal self centered way in a public gathering, he deserves to be arrested for public indecency then to be, allowed to speak in a house of public representation, He is nothing else but a h indu vulgar do g, self centered, an out law in human form.
