SITAMADHI — A legal advisor in Sitamarhi, north Bihar, has filed a case against Lord Ram in a court.
Lawyer Thakur Chandan Kumar Singh filed the case in the court of the chief judicial magistrate (CJM) alleging that Lord Ram had expelled Devi (goddess) Sita to a life in exile in a forest without any suitable justification for doing so, reported Indian Express.
“The Devi was exiled (banbas) for no fault of hers. It was a hypocritical order from king Ram. How can a man become so cruel to his wife that he sends her off to live in a forest? Lord Ram did not think for a single moment how a woman could live alone amid wild animals, including reptiles and mammals, in the forest”, the report quoted the complainant as saying.
On February 1, the CJM agreed to take up the matter for hearing on the point. The complainant claimed his aim was not to hurt anybody’s religious feeling.Follow @gorkhapost
