Jains Request MP Government To Allow Monks Defecate In The Open

National News, News

Digambara Jains, a sect of Jains who do not wear clothes for religious purposes and often attend nature’s call in the open have approached the Madhya Pradesh government to allow them to do so. According to the Digamber Jain Social Group Federation, forcing Digambara jains to use toilers and penalizing them for attending nature’s call in the open will disturb their ancient religious practices.

Acting president of the group Ravindra Jain said, “We have asked the government to allow our monks and seers to attend the nature’s call in the open as they never use toilets for doing so. They follow a centuries-old strict lifestyle in which they only go in secluded or forested areas to attend nature’s call and that too once in a day.” Recently Supreme Court banned a Jain practice called “Santhara”, where Jain monks stop taking foods to take their own lives.
