This week in antic Hindu fundamentalism [Sita’s Agnipariksha in Ramayan — Agniveer]

by Srikanth

Sita’s Agnipariksha in Ramayan — Self-Help | Motivation | Spiritualism | Rationalism | Vedas | Hinduism | Anti-Casteism | Women Rights – Agniveer.

The author cites the following as apocryphal ‘myths’ in the ‘history’ of the Ramayana:

Ramayan:

– Sita exile (entire Uttar Ramayan is fictitious and a latter day creation having no linkage with Valmiki)

– Killing of Shambuka , a shudra by Ram (again fiction from frivolous Uttar Ramayan)

– Hanuman, Bali, Sugriva etc being monkeys or apes. They were human beings, Hanuman was a great scholar, brilliant and impressive personality

– Ram, Lakshman, Sita being meat-eaters or alcohol consumers”
