Swami Prasad Maurya gave a statement on Ramcharitmanas
She said that I will be running in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections from Badaun as a BJP candidate. Swami Prasad Maurya, Sanghamitra’s father and a minister in the previous BJP-led government in Uttar Pradesh, on February 22 demanded a ban on some parts of Sri Ramcharitmanas from Tulsidas, saying it was caste discrimination, varna against a large part of the society. And there is insult on the basis of class. The leader of the SP, Maurya, had said. The true meaning of religion is the welfare of humanity and its strength. If due to some lines of Ramcharitmanas, a section of the society is insulted on the basis of caste, varna and class, then it is definitely not religion but injustice. In some lines (pairs) of Ramcharitmanas, the names of some castes like Teli and Kumhar have been taken.
The feelings of millions of people are being hurt
Maurya had said, the feelings of thousands of people from these castes are being hurt. Similarly, a Ramcharitmanas chaupai says that women should be punished. This is hurtful to your feelings. Who are half of our society. If debating the Tulsidas Ramcharitmanas is an insult to any religion. So why don’t religious leaders care about the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and other backward classes, women? Is this class not Hindu? He had said that the objectionable parts of Ramcharitmanas which insult a section of society on the basis of caste class and varna should be banned.
BJP MP Sanghamitra Maurya said
Earlier, BJP MP Sanghamitra Maurya had told reporters in Badayun on February 25 that the chaupai of Shri Ramcharitmanas mentioned by her father was objectionable. That should be discussed with scholars. Budaun BJP MP Sanghamitra told reporters when she was asked about the controversy over comments made by her father Swami Prasad Maurya regarding Shriramcharitmanas. Father has read Ramcharitmanas. However, I have not spoken to him about it. But if he has given an example of a chaupai, it is probably because that line is contrary to the character of Lord Ram himself. Where Lord Ram ate the false Shabari berries without giving importance to the caste, the caste has been described in that quadruped.
Swami Prasad Maurya left BJP and joined SP
He said that if Swami Prasad Maurya has asked for an explanation by mentioning that line, then we think there should be an explanation. This is not a topic to sit down and debate in the media. We believe that it is a question of analysis. This should be discussed by sitting down with the scholars. Maurya left the BJP and joined the SP before last year’s state assembly elections. Maurya contested from the Fazilnagar seat in Kushinagar district. But they were defeated. However, the SP later made him a member of the Legislative Council.
