Members of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) sprinkled “divine” cow urine on a stage, actor Prakash Raj delivered a speech at an event in Sirsi in Karnataka.

Prakash Raj, who was invited to a programme titled “Our Constitution, Our Pride” organised over the weekend reportedly criticised Uttara Kannada MP and Union minister Anant Kumar Hegde while delivering a speech at the event.

The criticism did not please members of the BJP’s youth faction, who, on the day of Sankranti, decided to sprinkle cow urine in the entire area to “cleanse and purify” venue.

Details of the incident were also expressed by the actor on Twitter.

“BJP workers are cleaning and purifying the stage from where I spoke in Sirsi town by sprinkling cow urine (divine gomoothra). Will you continue this cleaning and purification service where ever I go?” he tweeted.

Known as a critic of the government, Prakash Raj has been vocal about his political stance in many instances.

Most recently, he was in the news for his criticism of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s silence on the murder of senior journalist Gauri Lankesh, and said this silence was “worrying.”
