Varanasi: Around 150 men from different parts of India gathered at Manikarnika Ghat, Varanasi on Monday. The group of men performed last rites of their ‘marital relations’.
Amit Deshpande, a social activist who attended the event, said, “We don’t want to go back to traditional set up of the society in which men are considered as protectors and providers and women as caretakers. We support equality. But feminism in today’s form has deviated from its core values of equality and is trying to create a gynocentric society.”
“Therefore, the last rites of the corrupted form of feminism, as it prevails in the society at present, was performed. We want equality in every form. Last rites of the bias and discrimination against men were also performed,” Deshpande said.
