"There is no harm if anyone practices the things which are legally allowed. But if anyone tries to do things which are not permissible in law, strict action would be taken against them," the chief minister said, in an apparent reference to the statements made by the sadhvi.

"There may be a confusion amongst people (on the issue). Some confusions have been created purposely, some confusions arise due to ignorance," he said.
