Their logic is as follows:  Rahul being a non-vegetarian and hence, impure, shouldn't have visited the holy land of Kedarnath before purifying himself—that is taking a dip in the Ganges.

"Rahul Gandhi eats beef, and goes to the holy shrine (Kedarnath) without purifying himself. The earthquake was bound to happen," The Times of India reported Sakshi Maharaj as saying.

Also present at the conference was Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Sadhvi Prachi.

Jumping the queue, she made a similar statement saying, “This ( earthquake) is due to the visit of Rahul Gandhi, who is a non-vegetarian. He did not take holy Ganga dip. He should have first purified himself. This disaster in Nepal and northern India is due to Rahul’s visit," reports the Tribune.

Soon, 'Sakshi Maharaj' started trending on Twitter as people slammed the VHP leader
