During a media interaction, self-styled godwoman Radhe Maa flaunted her knowledge of English and quizzed mediapersons. Challenging a reporter to prove he’s a graduate, she told him to “transfer” (translate) the lines to her from English to Hindi. Claiming that she is “pure” and “pious”, the 52-year-old godwoman inquired about a reporter’s academic qualification, in a video posted by news agency ANI.
She asked reporters to translate sentences like, “The Ramayana tells Lord Rama returned this day to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile,” and “Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”. The controversial spiritual godwoman was on a visit to the Sambhal district in Uttar Pradesh to attend the ongoing ‘Kalki Mahotsav’.
However, the quizzing soon took an ugly turn. During the interaction, when one of the reporters asked her about certain charges levelled against her, she lost her temper and warned reporters of consequences. Threatening the media to see her after “15 days”, she also asked them to leave.

Radhe Maa yelled angrily, “…are you yourself doodh ka dhula (spotless)? Why do you people always say such things?” Urging reporters to treat her with respect, she also stressed she is ‘Maa‘ and not a ‘sannyasin’. While her supporters asked her to calm down, she shouted, “Aaj bolne do mujhe (Let me speak today)!”
