RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, while addressing the workers of the organisation in Ahmedabad, spoke about the increasing rate of divorce in the country. He said, "Nowadays, the number of divorce cases have increased a lot. People fight over trifle issues: the cases of divorce are more in educated and affluent families because with education and affluence comes arrogance."

He added, "And as a result of which families are falling apart." Well, this received polarising reactions on social media and one of the celebrities to come out and question Bhagwat for his statement was Sonam Kapoor. Taking to her account, she wrote- "Which sane man speaks like this? Regressive foolish statements." (sic)
