Badaun. Samajwadi Party (SP) Legislative Council member Swami Prasad Maurya, who has been surrounded by controversies for demanding a ban on certain parts of Shri Ramcharitmanas, has been defended by his daughter and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Sanghamitra Maurya. Sanghamitra says that the chaupai of Shri Ramcharitmanas mentioned by his father as objectionable should be discussed with scholars.
Sanghamitra, BJP MP from Badaun, while talking to reporters, when asked about the controversy over her father Swami Prasad Maurya’s comment on Shri Ramcharitmanas, said, “Father has read Ramcharitmanas. Although I have not spoken to him in this regard, 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 Shabari’s fake berries without giving importance to caste, caste has been described in that quadruped. He said, “He (Swami Prasad Maurya) asked for clarification by quoting that line with suspicion, so we think there should be an explanation. This is not a topic to sit and debate in the media. We think it is a matter of analysis. This should be discussed by sitting with scholars. The BJP MP said, when we find something contrary to God, we need an explanation. Sanghamitra also claimed that this chaupai was questioned in a poem by the great poetess Mahadevi Verma, saying that she too had said that she was surprised why no woman had raised a finger on it yet.
“He (Maurya) is our father, so I am not defending him, rather I am saying that if a person speaks anything, we should not comment until we understand his point completely,” she said. needed. It is worth mentioning that SP’s Legislative Council member Swami Prasad Maurya had said on Sunday, if any section of the society has been insulted on the basis of caste, varna and class in some lines of Ramcharitmanas, then it is certainly not religion. This is unrighteousness. Maurya had said, in some lines of Ramcharit Manas, the names of castes like Teli and Kumhar are mentioned which hurt the sentiments of lakhs of people of these castes. Maurya demanded that such parts of the book, which insult someone on the basis of one’s caste or any such mark, should be banned. Swami Prasad Maurya, who was a cabinet minister in the previous BJP government in the state, left the BJP and joined the SP before the state assembly elections held last year. Maurya contested from the Fazilnagar seat in Kushinagar district, but was defeated. However, later the SP made him a member of the Legislative Council.
