The Quint: Don’t Ask Women to Not Read Scriptures When They Wrote Them: Amish

Ahead of the launch of his new book, Sita: Warrior of Mithila, Amish spoke to The Quint about discrimination of women in India.
Calling the current state of affairs “shameful”, he called out to the “idiots” who ask women to not read scriptures. Amish pointed out that parts of the Rig Veda, the first of the four Vedas, have been written by ‘rishikas’ or women equivalents of prophets and messiahs.
Among other things, he also spoke of Sita who he portrays as a warrior in his upcoming book. He added that perhaps one day he will also write an entire series on a woman protagonist.
