Satguru Maharaj Ji says women in politics cause more confusion
Should women be allowed to interfere in Politics or dare to contest for a presidential post?Spiritual leader of One Love Family, Satguru Maharaj Ji, says No, as a matter of fact he sees it a taboo.
While speaking at the Tribune newspaper house on Tuesday, the Spiritual leader damned females in politics and went ahead to call out the finance minister – Okonjo Iweala.
“Women must not lead. If a woman is a governor, what do you address her, ‘first man’, or ‘first lady man’. It is there in the Bible and Qu’ran. Even the Bible said, women must not lead in the church. They are to play secondary roles. Look at Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Coordinating Minister of the Economy, look at the policies being made.”
“In Liberia, there is confusion because a woman is the president. What do you expect? They may vie for other positions but governorship and presidency is a no-go area for women.”
According to him, there was bound to be confusion and ineffective policy making whenever women occupy such leadership roles hence, they should only occupy secondary roles.
