The devotees of Swaminarayan Temple run Shri Sahajanand College together. The principal of this college said that we had received complaints that girls undergoing periods are shaking hands with people in the college. She is going to the temple as well as in the kitchen.
To prevent this, the principal, along with the college staff, removed the underwear of 68 girls and made them check whether their menstruation was going on.
For this, the college staff first took the girls to the washroom and then they got their clothes removed and got it checked. One girl told the local media that such excesses often happen in this college.
A girl complained that our parents are being emotionally blackmailed about this incident. They are being asked by the College and Temple Trust not to tell the police about this.
When the local media wanted to talk to the women trustees and principal of the college and temple about this, those people were not available. However, two trustees have investigated this and said to take strict action in the case.
