A 2018 video of actor-turned-politician Prakash Raj is doing rounds on social media in which he compares the much-celebrated Hindu festival of RamLeela to ‘child porn’.

Speaking at a News18 event on February 2018, the ultra-left wing ideologue Prakash Raj launches an attack on Uttar Pradesh government and its Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for promoting Ram Leela events. Raj has claimed that the CM of Uttar Pradesh participating in religious festivals is a drama and it instils fear among the minorities. He had stated that whether the CM of UP is expecting ‘Vikas’ by changing the paint on the wall.

Prakash Raj went on to say he ‘found it funny’ when UP CM Yogi Adityanath participates in ‘Rathotsav’. He went on to assert that Yogi Adityanath is not supposed to do such things as a Chief Minister of the state.

Then he makes a shocking comment on the Ramleela event when Prakash Raj claims that he does not want cultural and historical events like Ramleela to happen in the country. Calling it as appeasement, Prakash Raj makes deplorable comments by comparing it with Child Porn.

The anchor asks why shouldn’t the Uttar Pradesh government organise such cultural events as it reflects the will of the people and questions why Prakash Raj has a problem with the event. An agitated Prakash Raj went on to say, “Will you not ask if children watch child porn. Will you leave it? It is dangerous for society. Events like Ramleela are dangerous for society. This is appeasement. It is instilling fear on the minority. What they did (the UP government) instilled fear in us. I am not comfortable with it.”

He further adds, “My understanding is that they going to temple is our culture. In full public view, why are you doing Naatak (Drama).”

When questioned about how he can distribute certificate on what belongs to Indian culture and what does not, Prakash Raj went on to say that he was very clear about what is the culture and what is not. “Bringing Ram, Lakshman and Sita in a helicopter, putting them down is not my culture,” said Raj.

Prakash Raj, the ultra-left wing ideologue, who is often known for spewing venom against the Hindu faith and spreading lies to further his leftist agenda, suffered a humiliating defeat in the 2019 general elections. He had called the defeat a ‘solid slap on his face’.

In the past, Prakash Raj had stoked a controversy after he had foul-mouthed against the Hinduism stating that he had “no respect” for the religion which “prevents women from worshipping” by falsely bringing reference of age-old custom of Sabarimala temple. With no respects for facts, Prakash Raj had deliberately insulted Hinduism to further his hate towards Hindus.
