Those insulting Priests, Hindu scriptures should mind their languages: Raman Suri

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Jan 13: Taking strong exception of those insulting Hindu priests or Hindu scriptures, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) J&K Executive Member Raman Suri today said that such people must mind their languages. Bihar's Education Minister Chandrashekhar had said that Ramcharitmanas spreads "Hatred" in the society while Congress leader Rahul Gandhi had said that India is a country of "Tapasvis" not "Pujaris".
Raman Suri said that these statements reflect the poor and divisive mindset of politicians who intend to keep the society segregated for their vote bank politics. He said, those insulting Hindu Gods, Priests or Scriptures can't just have a free run in this country and police must take action against them as per the law of the land. They can't just get away with by issuing such statements that have hurt the sentiments of people across the length and breadth of India.
The BJP leader reminded these leaders that Ramcharitmanas, composed by the 16th century Indian poet Tulsidas, is revered as the holiest scriptures of Hindu Dharma and is written in Awadhi language. Ramcharitmanas, he said, is considered as one of the greatest works of Hindu literature wherein deeds of Lord Rama have been narrated. Insulting such a scripture by a Bihar Minister is nothing but short-sightedness, rotten mindset and illiteracy of a person who merely wants to spread hatred.
He added that the Congress leader's remarks on Priests, on the other hand, reflect his ignorance about India's history, culture and religion. He said, Rahul Gandhi must know how much priests are revered in India and how he and his entire family have been getting their home rituals performed by Pujaris (Priests). Rahul Gandhi must grow up, study Hinduism, learn India's cultural legacy and stop insulting our priests, who have been performing rituals for every single family since ages and making people learn the ways of Hinduism.
Taking Bihar minister Chandrashekhar and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi head on, Raman Suri said that these leaders are politically bankrupt and just can't see how Hindu priests or scriptures have been educating generations and guiding them to live a disciplined life, love their country, worship mother Earth, pray before deities and Gods respectfully besides perform rituals on all occasions to scare away evils. Those Asuras who had been torturing Sadhus and Priests in ancient and medieval ages were destroyed by the Gods, he reminded them.
Ramcharitmanas, Raman Suri said, is a living sum of the Indian culture while its author Tulsidas was a great scholar of Sanskrit who, in order to tell the story of Lord Rama to the general public in simplest form, wrote it in Awadhi language. He asserted that politicians issuing vague statements must stop hurting Hindus' sentiments or abusing them for vote bank politics. Such statements, he added, are unacceptable and must not be issued in the future and these leaders must also apologise.
