AAP minister says ‘no proof Ram, Krishna existed, Periyar’s ideology based on reason’, deletes tweet, claims ‘hackers did it to hurt party’

After deleting his tweet, AAP minister Rajendra Pal Gautam refuted such allegations and said he did not issue any such statements. He claimed that somebody has misused or hacked his twitter handle and tweeted against religious leaders to harm his party in the upcoming elections.

In a shocking statement, AAP leader and Delhi’s Social welfare minister Rajendra Pal Gautam on Thursday stoked a controversy after he made anti-Hindu remarks. He claims that Lord Krishna and Lord Ram have no historical proof.

Commenting on the tweet of Yoga Guru Swami Ramdev Baba, Rajendra Gautam made anti-Hindu remarks by stating that Lord Krishna and Lord Ram found no mention in history textbooks, but only in mythology. He added that as Periyar’s ideology was found in history texts, it was based on reason and authenticity.

He wrote, “If it is a fact that Ram and Krishna were your ancestors, then why are they not studied in history books? Ancestors have history, but there is no proof that they existed but Periyar ji and his views are based on reason and authenticity”.

Gautam’s shocking statements in response to Baba Ramdev’s recent tweet in which Yoga Guru had stated that he shares immense respect for leaders like Ambedkar, Jyotiba Phule, Savitribai Phule, Sant Ravidas, Maharshi Valmiki. He also added that these individuals were not only the leaders of the deprived class but also for the entire nation.

Defending his earlier statements calling followers of Periyar as ‘ideological terrorists’, Baba Ramdev said that Periyar’s ideologies were against Hindu culture and mythology as he had made objectionable comments on Hindu gods Lord Ram and Lord Krishna. Ramdev stated that how can I defend someone who has shown so much contempt to Hindu values and culture.

Ramdev claimed he opposed Periyar logically for the latter’s claim that the “Ramayana, the Mahabharata, Lord Ram and Lord Krishna were false”.

The shocking comments made by AAP minister did not go well on social media as various users countered Gautam and his party for making anti-Hindu comments and hurting religious sentiments of the public. As the backlash continued, the AAP minister deleted the tweet.

Later, AAP minister Rajendra Pal Gautam refuted such allegations and said he did not issue any such statements. He claimed that somebody has misused or hacked his twitter handle and tweeted against religious leaders to harm his party in the upcoming elections.

In an interview to Republic TV, Baba Ramdev had criticised the atheist approach of Periyar and his followers, calling its antithetical to the Indian ethos. Ramdev had stated, “Periyar followers say that people who follow gods are fools, those who worship him are miscreants, and that God is the devil.”

While describing himself as a supporter of Ambedkar for insisting on equality before the law, Ramdev had criticised his followers for insisting that Dalits and tribals were the original inhabitants of India.

Soon, the leftists and followers of Periyar ganged up to protest against Baba Ramdev and even demanded the arrest of Baba Ramdev. On social media, they also ran trends such as #BoycottPatanjali #ArrestRamdev, #BoycottPatanjaliProducts and #RamdevInsultsPeriyar.
