FIR lodged against CPM Leader Sitaram Yechury for remarks on Ramayana and Mahabharata

Sitaram Yechury had said that Ramayana and Mahabharata are examples of Hindu violence

Yesterday, yoga guru Baba Ramdev and other seers lodged an FIR against CPM Leader Sitaram Yechury for his remarks on ‘Ramayana and Mahabharata’ with SSP Haridwar.

“We have filed a complaint against Yechury, who has insulted our ancestors. It is an offence. He should be put behind the bars. We have demanded a strict investigation into the matter,” said Baba Ramdev after filing the complaint.

Speaking at an event, Sitaram Yechury had said, “Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur said that Hindus don’t believe in violence. Many kings and principalities have fought battles in the country. Even Ramayana and Mahabharata are also filled with instances of violence and battles. Being a pracharak, you narrate the epics but still claim Hindus can’t be violent? What is the logic behind saying there is a religion which engages in violence and we Hindus don’t.”

This offensive statement by him generated a lot of criticism from the BJP and Shiv Sena. The Shiv Sena demanded that he drop his name ‘Sitaram’ and even demand CPM candidate Kanhaiya Kumar to change his name.

“Ramayana and Mahabharata conveyed one central message – victory of good over evil. Sitaram Yechury’s ideology is his own. His ideology has only one objective, which is to attack Hindus and make oneself the premier secular person,” Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut said.

The seers have demanded a strict investigation to be carried out as the CPM leaders remarks have hurt the sentiments of the Hindus.

The CPM leader had tried to reinforce the bogus idea of saffron terror and this time around he has sought to degrade the Ramayana and Mahabharata as well. Once again the Communists have shown their hatred towards the Hindus.
