Patna: RJD President Lalu Prasad today alleged that the RSS wanted to write a new Constitution based on anti-dalit 'Manusmriti.'
"The intention of RSS is very dangerous...It wishes to convert the present Parliament, where BJP has majority, into a 'Samvidhan Sabha' (Constitution Assembly) to write a new Constitution which would be based on Manusmriti," Prasad told PTI.
He claimed that when the draft of our Constitution was introduced in Samvidhan Sabha, at that time only M S Golwalkar had said it was a copy of the Constitution of other countries and India's Constitution should be based on Manusmriti.
"According to Golwalkar, after the Vedas, the Manusmriti is the most holy book of the country. Manusmriti says if a dalit listens to the Vedas, then molten glass should be poured into his ears," he said.
The RJD leader alleged that the RSS, whose ideology is rooted to Manusmriti, has never been able to digest the Indian Constitution which provides reservation to dalits and backwards.
"(RSS chief) Mohan Bhagwat's statement against reservation is not accidental, as he has his training in an ideology based on Manusmriti," Prasad said.
