On Birsa Munda’s Anniversary Madhya Pradesh Congress Leader Says Lord Hanuman Was ‘Adivasi’
6/10/2023 10:48:19 PM

MP, June 10: Last month, another tribal Congress MLA Arjun Singh Kakodia in Madhya Pradesh had called Lord Hanuman an ‘Adivasi’.
Madhya Pradesh Congress leader on Sunday said Lord Hanuman was an “Adivasi” or a “Tribal”.
The state’s former forest minister and Congress MLA from Gandhwani in Dhar district, Umang Singhar, has said: “It was Adivasis who took Lord Ram to Lanka. Some people wrote in stories it was the Vanar Sena (ape army).
There were no apes. They were Adivasis and they lived in the jungles. Hanuman was also Adivasi. We are his descendants. Be proud,” mentioned news agency PTI in its report. Singhar was addressing an event on the occasion of the 123rd death anniversary of tribal leader and freedom fighter Birsa Munda in the Dhar district.
Lashing out over the statement, Madhya Pradesh BJP spokesperson Hitesh Bajpai said, “They don’t consider Hanuman ji as God! They do not consider Hanuman ji to be worshipped by Hindus! They insult Hanuman ji!”
“Is he not a former Congress cabinet minister who is accused of rape and sexual abuse? And running away from arrest by the police? Is this the idea of Congress for Lord Hanuman? Is the Congress speaking the language of Catholic priests at your behest who do conversions,” he added.
Last month, another tribal Congress MLA Arjun Singh Kakodia had called Lord Hanuman an Adivasi while addressing a large public gathering and party workers’ meeting in the presence of Kamal Nath and other leaders in Seoni district.
