“I think this is a great thing that temples are opening up for women. They are a part of this nation and if you want women’s empowerment, then it is vitally important that all temples must be opened to women.”

 

In Vrindavan (Uttar Pradesh), more than a thousand widows broke from tradition to celebrate Holi at an ancient temple in the town.

Calling it as a wonderful thing, Abdullah said, “I think we all should be proud that this is happening. It is a great thing and India is moving forward in a positive manner.”

“There should be a positive outcome. We have been waiting for so many months for them to form the government. We hope they will form the government.”

Asked what he feels about the government that would be formed in the state, he said that he will answer that after one year.
