Sadhvi Saraswati is a Hindu religious preacher and is the president of Sanatan Dharma Prachar Seva Samiti. She hails from Chhindwara district in Madhya Pradesh.

She is known for her often provocative speeches at VHP functions where she is often a star speaker. She is reported to have taken ‘sadhvi deeksha’ at the age of 12 after being inspired by her grandfather and her father to narrate stories from Bhagawat Katha and the Ram Katha. An article in The News Minute quoted her saying that she will serve the cause of the ‘Hindu rashtra’ as long as she lives.

“We also relate the Gau Katha in the Bhagwad Katha because the manner in which cows are being slaughtered today, it is our duty to stop it. If gau hatya is stopped in Bharat desh, then a new revolution will occur,” she told the website.

She has reportedly studied only till class III and dropped soon after as school work interfered with her narration of the sermon. The sadhvi’s father was the Vidarbha convenor of the Bajrang Dal and from a young age, she has been associated with the activities of the RSS and the VHP.

The sadhvi on Wednesday made headlines for saying that she would request the Centre to hang those who consumed beef as a status symbol. She also urged Hindus to stock arms at home to “save our women from love jihad.” The statements were made at the inauguration of a four-day All India Hindu Convention, organised by the Hindu Janajagriti Samiti at Panaji in Goa.

“I appeal to the Government of India that those people who consider eating the meat of their own mother as a status symbol should be hanged,” she said to loud cheers from the audience. “They (those who eat beef) should be brought before the public and hanged, then only people will know that it is our duty to protect ‘gau mata’,” she said at the Ramnathi village convention.

In March, 2015, a case was registered under Section 153 (A) against the sadhvi for disturbing communal harmony through her allegedly provocative comments she made at a function in Mangalore.

            whose hinduism is it ? north's or the south's? The futility of measuring "true Hinduism" can also be seen from the "Mahabali" example. In Kerala and among Keralites, the Onam festival is celebrated. Its theme is that a good and benevolent king Mahabali visits his subjects once a year on that day. The subjects are happy that the king lives at least one day a year for them. In North India, Mahabali is a rakshash who is killed by Vishnu, and whose death was necessary so that the world may exist. So, now, who is the true Hindu, the North Indians for condemning Mahabali, or the Keralites for worshipping him?

              IN Andhra Pradesh and Tamilnadu, where, in some regions a girl is automatically married off to her mother's brother as soon as she comes of age. In North India such a practice would be considered de able, and the offenders probably lynched. The question is, who is the true Hindu, the North Indians for condemning it, or the Andhraites for allowing it? The BJP and allies, to prove that Hinduism is a "pure" and native religion, have also to prove that the Aryans did not come from outside. For that, they have to further prove that Mohenjodaro and Harappa had some Aryan culture. One mark of Aryan culture is horses, which they needed for travel and warfare. They found a horse's bone near the site, so, it proves, they said, that they were Aryan settlements and that further proves that the Aryans are from here! However, when the bone was analysed, it was found to be only 200 years old!”

                In the sites, a statue of a bull-like creature with long hair and mane was found. They fed a picture of it into computers, and one computer concluded that it looks like a horse! So, they said, it is actually a statue of a horse, and so it proves that they were fromAryan civilization, and so Aryans are from here. Well, Yechuri said with a smile, “When you call a bull a horse, and try to convince everyone that a statue of a bull is actually that of a horse, we can imagine what sort of ideologies and theories you have!”
