Bangalore: N Prabha, the state secretary of Bharatha Jnana Vijnana Samiti (BJVS), has filed a complaint against a man named VR Bhat who is a freelance writer and a self-proclaimed RSS worker. He had allegedly commented that 'woman who are against Sanatana Dharma should be raped, on a social networking site. The Chandra Layout police have registered a case in this connection.

In her complaint, Prabha stated that the BJVS works towards promoting scientific outlook, and posted on Facebook that priesthood had its impact on people, despite the progress in science and technology.
