Politics took place in the name of Lord Ram across the country. NCP leader Jitendra Awhad, who called Maryada Purushottam Shri Ram a non-vegetarian, was seen apologizing with folded hands. Although he repeatedly said that his speech was amazing, only one line messed it up, although he claims that even that line was not wrong, but still if his words hurt people’s faith, then he is sorry. Express. Jitendra Awhad had described Lord Ram as a non-vegetarian and asked whether Ram kept eating vegetables during his 14 years of exile? Where is fenugreek greens found in the forest? Ram used to eat meat, Ram is our ideal, hence we are also non-vegetarian. There was an uproar in Maharashtra, effigies of Jitendra Awhad were burnt, complaints were lodged in the police stations, saints in Nashik demanded the arrest of Awhad. Women workers of BJP in Mumbai showered shoes and slippers on the posters of Jitendra Awhad. When the matter escalated, criticism started coming from all sides, when leaders of allied parties also started speaking against Awhad, then NCP leader Eknath Khadse advised Jitendra Awhad to correct his mistake. Sharad Pawar was in the court of Sai Baba in Shirdi with his family. Sharad Pawar sent a message to Awhad asking him to correct his mistake. Pawar’s order took effect and Awhad apologized for his statement.

Jitendra Awhad quoted the verses of Valmiki Ramayana, described himself as a devotee of Ram, and said that whatever he said was based on research. But still if someone’s sentiments are hurt then he expresses regret, because Sharad Pawar has said that if the truth is bitter then that truth should not be spoken. Jitendra Awhad does not even know how many incidents are there in Ramayana. He had also written down the names of seven incidents. The verse he was quoting is in Sanskrit. Only he would know how much Jitendra Awhad understood him. But let me tell you that Jitendra Awhad was quoting the 102nd verse of the 52nd canto of Ayodhya Kand in Valmiki Ramayana. There is a word in that verse, medhyan. The meaning of this word is meat, but I want to tell Jitendra Awhad that this word also means root of tuber and pulp of fruits. This word has been used in the same sense in many other verses. Apart from this, Awhad should also read that part of Sundar Kand in Valmiki Ramayana, in which there is a dialogue of Hanuman ji with Mother Sita. There is 41st verse of 36th canto, in which Mother Sita asks Hanuman ji about the condition of Lord Ram and Hanuman ji answers. It is said that Lord Ram eats only once a day, he consumes only tuberous roots found in the forest. There are many such accounts in Valmiki’s Ramayana, but Awhad picked a word from one of the thirty-three thousand verses and described Maryada Purushottam as a non-vegetarian, that is why he is being criticized.

Even the saints are hurt by his words. Ramlala’s chief priest Acharya Satyendra Das also said that it is written in every scripture that during his exile, Lord Ram had survived by eating tubers and roots, there is no mention of non-vegetarian food anywhere. Jitendra Awhad made a mistake, he realizes his mistake but is still not ready to accept his mistake. He expressed regret but also said that what he said was right, so his regret has no meaning. Sharad Pawar and Uddhav Thackeray understand that Jitendra Awhad’s poisonous tongue will harm the entire alliance. That is why no leader from NCP, Congress and Shiv Sena stood in his support. Jitendra Awhad also knows that Hindus are generous, in Sanatan, forgiving the wrongdoer is said to be the most courageous act. It has been said that the elder needs forgiveness and the younger needs trouble. Tulsi Das has written in Ram Charit Manas, “Jaki rahi bhavana jaisi, Prabhu murat dekhi tin jaisi” That is why Jitendra Awhad’s feelings have demonic qualities, he imagined Lord Ram in the same way. Here Jitendra Awhad will be forgiven but people can ask Awhad whether he has the courage to say such things about the symbols of any religion other than Hindu Gods and if he had said such things about any other religion. Would he have been saved just by apologizing like this? But the problem is that nowadays the leaders of the opposition parties are saying such wrong things about the consecration ceremony of Ram Lalla in the Ram temple.

On Thursday, Tejashwi Yadav said that what would be the result of building a temple, it would have been better to build a hospital instead of a temple. Tejashwi Yadav said, Modi says that he built a palace for Ram, but Shri Ram is God, if he needed a palace, he would have built it himself. Crores of rupees are being spent in building the temple, how many hospitals and schools are there for this much money. Would have become. Tejashwi told the people that if you fall ill, will you go to the temple or the hospital? So don’t fall into this trap. On this, Giriraj Singh said that Tejashwi is hurting the faith of Hindus, the political DNA of Lalu and Nitish is anti-Sanatan, will Tejashwi say that he will demolish the Haj House of Patna and build a hospital? Congress leaders are now speaking with some caution on this issue. Former Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said that Ram temple was built because Rajiv Gandhi opened the lock of the temple, Rajiv Gandhi laid the foundation stone but BJP has made this religious program its political agenda.

It is clear from the statements of the leaders of RJD, Congress and Trinamool Congress that the parties involved in the alliance of opposition parties are confused on the issue of Ayodhya. They do not understand how to counter the aggressive stance of BJP. Due to this confusion, mistakes are being made and absurd statements are being made. This is making the matter more complicated. Mamta’s Trinamool Congress party has said that Didi will not participate in the Pran Pratistha ceremony. Sonia Gandhi and Mallikarjun Kharge have not yet decided whether to go or not. Nitish and Lalu have not yet accepted the invitation. Uddhav has not received the invitation card yet. Akhilesh Yadav is confused about whether he will go to Ayodhya or not. Therefore, now it seems that the leaders of the anti-Modi front will not go to the Pran Pratistha ceremony. After consecration, we will plan to go to Ayodhya together. This will have two benefits. Firstly, we will be able to avoid being called anti-Ram and will be able to accuse BJP of doing politics in the name of the temple. Secondly, since the leaders of all the parties included in the alliance have not received the invitation, if some people leave then there may be a rift in the alliance, hence it is possible that no leader of the opposition party may go on January 22 to show solidarity and then Later all the leaders came together to have darshan of Ramlala.
