In islam there is no such taboons, its impure bcoz that blood is impure not the women, though she cannt pray and touch quran and cnt fast bt rest she is free to deal with everything else ,,,bt some ppl makes the women impure by their words not to sit there not to go there etcs

There is a good reason behind all these myths, taboos, believes, etc.
As everyone probably knows, sanitary pads (napkins) have come into mass use not so long ago, around half century probably. In some parts women still don't get to use it.
So back then when sanitary pads were not there, if women went into temples, kitchen, etc, blood would've been spilled. And back then women used to do much more household work, make atta at home, stitch at home (make clothes), there were no diapers for babies, no washing machines. So instead of having to continue to do all this work when body is a bit weaker and in addition having to clean blood spilled, they were restricted, thus enabling them to rest.
As to the religious part of it, it probably was implemented so that everyone follows it, especially male part of society, for whom otherwise it would have been very difficult to explain that too in time when women didn't have half as many right as today.
But bottom line of it is that times have changed, now we have these sanitary napkins, washing machines, diapers, ready made clothes, a lot of food items like atta are ready made in shops, hence all the taboos don't apply now.

Women were isolated during their periods and given complete rest .. To ensure her health n cleanliness and hygiene..
Later religions added some masala and made women uneasy to handle the social practices during periods...
though its a natural process, it has severe germs which can affect the hygiene of ppl around..

it's completely natural.women not entering temple or even this don't tell it to anyone types of myth needs to be broken down. infact every family should consider it like its natural there is not unnatural about it.

it's a matter to be still dealt in.
impurity is still considered during periods.
here ladies are only the ones who have created this taboo. they only use the word impure so ultimately its Impure
