Pooja Bedi compared the naked body of Milind Soman to the Naga sadhus, Mahant Giri invited them for the next Kumbh.

The Akhil Bhartiya Akhara Parishad (ABAP), the apex body of 13 recognized Hindu monasteries in the country, has strongly condemned actor Pooja Bedi for comparing the nude photograph of actor Milind Soman with Naga sadhus. ABAP President Mahant Narendra Giri said “Pooja Bedi has no knowledge of Naga tradition” and invited Pooja to Mahakumbh in Haridwar next year to get more information about Naga ascetics. Pooja Bedi defended Milind Soman over her nude beach pick controversy saying, ‘If nudity is a crime then all Naga Babas should be arrested’

Milind had recently posted his nude photo on social media on his birthday, expressing sharp reactions. The Goa Police had registered a case against Milind for allegedly promoting pornography. Giri said that “it is wrong to compare the nudity and vulgarity of a model film artist to the tradition of Naga ascetics”. He advised Pooja to “educate himself by learning more about Naga ascetics. He should spend some time in Kumbh and witness the difficult penance of Naga ascetics.” Milind Soman in his new insta post, a nose ring and kajal play, is a part of Akshay Kumar’s Lakshmi, so the fans wondered what would happen (see pic)

He said that the Naga ascetics are found in the Vaishnava and Digambara Jain traditions and perform austerities and sacrifices in life according to the tradition that has been in place for centuries. Bedi had defended Milind and compared his picture to Naga sadhus. He tweeted, “There is absolutely nothing vulgar about the @milindrunning beauty picture. Obscenity lies in a viewer’s mind to be more imaginative! Her crime looks good, famous and setting benchmarks! If nudity is a crime So all Naga Babas should be arrested. Smearing ashes cannot make it acceptable! “
