Jabalpur: Angry with BJP leader Ram Jethmalani’s statement over Lord Ram, religious Guru Mahamandaleshwar Swami Shayamdas Maharaj has announced a prize of Rs 5 lakh for anyone who is ready to spit on Jethmalani’s face.
Jethmalani recently said that Lord Ram was a bad husband as he sent his wife, Sita to exile merely for something said by fishermen. Several Hindu religious gurus and saints have expressed their anger over the comment.
Shayamdas told Bhaskar News that he has been getting calls from across the country from people angry over the irresponsible comment. He further said that his announcement does not promote violence.
A few days ago, Hindu Justice Board had announced a prize of Rs 11 lakh for anyone who is ready to ‘slice off Jethmalani’s tongue. The board has also asked BJP to explain why no action was taken against Jethmalani.
