A retired professor from Karnataka has stirred a controversy after he made comments demeaning God Rama. KS Bhagawan, a Retired Professor & Writer, recently said that Rama was a drunkard, sent his wife Sita to the forest and did not bother about her. He also said that Uttara Kanda of Valmiki’s Ramayana show that Rama was not an ideal king and ruled only for 11 years.
“There is talk about building a Rama Rajya…If one reads the Uttara Kanda of Valmiki’s Ramayana, it will become evident that (Lord) Rama was not ideal. He did not rule for 11,000 years, but only for 11 years…(Lord) Rama would sit with Sita in the afternoon and spend the rest of the day drinking…He sent his wife Sita into the forest and didn’t bother about her…He chopped off the head of Shambuka, a Shudra, who was sitting in penance under a tree. How can he be ideal?” said KS Bhagawan, Retired Professor & Writer in Mandya district, reported ANI.
This is a developing story.
