Patna: Lawyer Thakur Chandan Kumar Singh grabbed headlines when he filed a complaint-case against Lord Ram and his brother Lakshman in the court of chief judicial magistrate in Sitamarhi on Saturday.
In his petition, Singh said that Ram sent Sita to a life in exile in a forest without any fault of her and there was no justification for doing it.
"Sita was exiled for no fault of hers. It was hypocritical order of King Ram. How can a man become so cruel towards his wife that he sends her to live in a forest alone," the petitioner said, as per IANS.
Singh said that as per Ramayan, Ram sent Sita to the forest after her purity was questioned by a washerman of his kingdom Ayodhya.
The lawyer, speaking to Catch News, Singh also said - "Sita was the epitome of perfect wife, he went to exile with him and endured all hardships with Rama. Sukh dukh mein unka saath diya. How could he leave her on the words of spies who questioned her character."
Singh further told the website - "Few days back I was present in the court when judge was hearing a domestic violence case. It suddenly struck me that by that logic Rama was the first perpetrator of domestic violence against his wife. If Sita didn't get justice in treta yug, how will women get women get justice in Kalyug?"
He is said to be the convener and founder of Bharatiya Kanti Shanti Party.
It is said to be working against crime in the state.
Meanwhile, as a Bihar court on Monday began hearing of a case against Lord Rama for exiling his wife Sita to forest as Ramayan narrates, it asked the petitioner who should be punished for an incident of such ancient times, a government lawyer said.
"Judge of the court asked the petitioner soon after hearing in the case began, whom should he punish in such an ancient incident?" the lawyer said.
The judge also asked the petitioner why has he filed a case in such an ancient incident and who will be his witness.
"You have also not mentioned the date on which Rama ousted Sita and sent her to forest. And what is the basis of complaint," the judge posed, according to the lawyer.
Singh is a resident of Dumri Kala village under Majorganj police station.
