A popular Marathi kirtankar (Preacher) has come under hammer for his controversial remarks. In a recent video, the preacher named ‘Indurikar Maharaj’ is seen giving tips to followers for having a ‘son’.
He has been preaching his followers about ways to determine the sex of the unborn child through the date of intercourse. A video from his address in a hamlet in Ahmednagar district is doing the rounds.
In the video, Maharaj can be heard saying, “If intercourse with a woman is done on even date, a male child is born and if intercourse is done on an odd date, a girl child is born. If intercourse is done on inauspicious timing, the child that is born would bring a bad name to the family“.
The government officials have taken note of his remarks. A case is likely to be filed against him under the provisions of the Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (PCPNDT) Act.
