No Lord Ram – Only a Myth says Indian Government

In an affidavit filed in the Supreme Court of India on the Sethusamudram project, the Congress-led UPA government in India has questioned the existence of Lord Ram and has said he is a mere mythical character. The Indian Central Government to the Supreme Court “…contents of the Valmiki Ramayana, the Ramcharitamanas by Tulsidas and other mythological texts… cannot be said to be historical record to incontrovertibly prove the existence of the characters, or the occurrence of the events, depicted therein.”The statement was given by Archeological Survey of India (ASI) on behalf of the Central Government.In simple terms, the statement of the Congress-led UPA government says that Lord Ram and other Hindu gods are not real.
