BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: Sonam Kapoor is known to speak her mind and on Monday, the Neerja actress took to Twitter to slam Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat’s comments on divorce “regressive”.
On Sunday, Bhagwat had said that cases of divorce were found more in educated and affluent families. He also claimed that education and wealth came with arrogance, which then leads to broken families.
“Which sane man speaks like this? Regressive foolish statements,” Sonam tweeted regarding a news report on Bhagwat’s divorce comments.

While addressing a gathering of RSS workers and their families in Ahmedabad, Bhagwat also said, “Nowadays the number of divorce cases has increased a lot. People fight over trivial issues. The cases of divorce are more in educated and affluent families, because with education and affluence comes arrogance, as a result of which families fall apart. The society also falls apart because society is also a family.”
He went onto mention how India has no option other than a Hindu society and Hindu society has no option but to behave like a family. “The condition of the society is because of the customs that have been practising here for the last 2,000 years. Women we have here were confined to homes. This was not the case 2,000 years ago. That was the golden age of our society,” Mr Bhagwat said. He urged RSS swayamsevaks to tell their family members about their activities in the Sangh, “because many times women members of the family have to carry out more painful work than us to ensure that we can do what we do,” said the RSS chief.
