According to this news report, a group of Indian men decided to perform last rites for their former wives.
They say taking a dip in the Ganga redeems you of all your sins. But a group of Indian men decided that taking a dip in the river, that's considered sacred by Hindus, will help the world get rid of 'toxic feminism'. So, they did exactly that. Last week, 150 odd men from across the country packed their bags and left for Varanasi, in Uttar Pradesh.
These 'harassed' men did a 'shraadha' (last rites) for their alive wives who don't live with them anymore. They also conducted a 'pishachini mukti puja' for their former wives – in order to get rid of the 'bad memory of past marital relationships'.
Do scriptures allow śrāddha to be performed for relatives when they are still alive?
