New Delhi: BJP leader Khushbu Sundar was detained in Tamil Nadu’s Chengalpattu district on Tuesday (October 27) while on her way to protest against VCK leader Thirumavalavan’s remarks on Manusmriti. She had had recently joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) earlier this month.

After the BJP leader was detained, Khushbu Sundar took to Twitter and questioned the AIADMK government in Tamil Nadu, saying why was she being “denied our democratic right for a peaceful protest”. She also alleged that other parties are being allowed to hold the protest.

“When your journey is cut short by force, you know you are on right track. I question @AIADMKOfficial n #CM of TN @EPSTamilNadu avl, why we are denied of our democratic right for a peaceful protest when other parties are given the permission to do the same? Why this partiality?”

In another tweet, Khushbu Sundar said, “Or is @AIADMKOfficial govt aware that #VCK is capable of riots and goondaism and they fear the same?”

During a recent address to a group, Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) chief Thol Thirumavalavan claimed that Manusmriti demeans women and that Manu Dharma treats women as prostitutes. He had also demanded a ban on Manusmriti.
