Real Ayodhya In Nepal, Lord Ram Not Indian Says PM KP Sharma Oli
Amid cold war between India and Nepal, PM KP Sharma Oli passed another controversial remark against Lord Ram.
In a stunning claim which is set spark controversy, Nepal Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, on Monday (July 13), said that Lord Ram was born in Ayodhya village of Nepal and not in India as claimed. PM Oli made the bizarre claim while addressing a program to mark the birth anniversary of Bhanubhakta Acharya. “Although real Ayodhya lies at Thori city, in the west of Birgunj, India has claimed that Lord Ram was born there. Due to these continuous claims, even we have believed that diety Sita got married to Prince Ram of India. However, in reality, Ayodhya is a village lying west of Birgunj,” he said.
Nepal PM Oli has accused India of cultural encroachment by “creating a fake Ayodhya.” He noted, “Till now we have remained under the belief that Ram, the man Sita married, was an Indian. He was not. He was Nepali. Balmiki Ashram is in Nepal and the holy place where King Dashrath had executed the rites to get the son is in Ridi. Dashrath’s son was not an Indian and Ayodhya is also in Nepal.” He added that it was impossible for Lord Ram to come to Janakpur from Ayodhya in India.
