‘Ram wasn’t God, was a character in a story created by Tulsidas and Valmiki’: Former Bihar CM Jitan Ram Manjhi

Bihar: Former Bihar Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi on Thursday said “Ram wasn’t a God”, instead he was a character created by Tulsidas and Valmiki to spread their message.

He further said he reveres Tulsidas and Valmiki, but not Lord Ram.

“Ram wasn’t a God. Tulsidas-Valmiki created this character to say what they had to. They created ‘kavya’ & ‘mahakavya’ with this character. It states a lot of good things & we revere that. I revere Tulsidas-Valmiki but not Ram..,” news agency ANI quoted Manjhi as saying.

Manjhi, the chief of the Hindustan Awam Morcha (HAM) that is a part of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance, was speaking at an event to mark the birth anniversary of Babasaheb Ambedkar, who framed India’s constitution.

Manjhi’s remarks come at a time when some states are dealing with the fallout from clashes during Ram Navami processions, which commemorate the birth of Lord Ram.
