The Hitavada - - NATION -

RIGHT-WING ac­tivist Samb­haji Bhide on Fri­day got bail from a lo­cal court in a case filed against him over an al­leged re­mark that man­goes from his farm cured in­fer­til­ity and helped cou­ples have male chil­dren.

Samb­haji Bhide (87), chief of the Shiv Pratishthan Hin­dus­tan, had made the re­mark dur­ing a pub­lic rally in June. “I have never shared this with any­one ex­cept my mother. I have planted these mango trees in my farms. Till now, 180 child­less cou­ples took the fruit from me and 150 of them have had chil­dren,” Bhide had claimed. “If a cou­ple wants a male child, they will have it af­ter eat­ing these man­goes. This mango is use­ful for those fac­ing in­fer­til­ity,” he had said at the June 10 rally. Bhide on Fri­day ap­peared be­fore Ju­di­cial Mag­is­trate First Class Jaideep Pandey and was granted bail on a per­sonal bond of Rs 15,000.
