Patna: A case was filed against Lord Ram in a court in Bihar's Sitamarhi district for renouncing his wife Sita in Ramayana and surprisingly the court agreed to hear the petition filed against Lord Ram, for the ‘cruelty showed' towards his wife, Sita.
A Sitamarhi advocate Thakur Chandan Kumar Singh filed a case in a civil court against Lord Ram and his brother Laxman.
A report by the Hindustan Times said, a senior lawyer filed the case in the court of the chief judicial magistrate (CJM) in Sitamarhi, north Bihar.
The petitioner said, “I filed this case because I want justice for Sita who belongs to Mithila.”
Singh alleged that ‘Ram had banished Devi Sita to a life in exile in a forest without any suitable justification for doing so'.
Singh also charged Laxman for helping Lord Ram. He quoted this as an instance of a non-cognisable offence committed by Ram towards his wife.
The hearing of the case is due on Monday.
As expected the move has created tremendous buzz on micro blogging site twitter with many taking swipe at both judiciary and complainant.
