A practising lawyer has filed a complaint case against Lord Rama in a court in Sitamarhi, north Bihar.

The ‘case’, filed in the court of the chief judicial magistrate (CJM), sought to be made out against Lord Rama is that his conduct showed him wanting in the treatment of women.

Complainant Thakur Chandan Kumar Singh alleged that Rama had banished Devi (goddess) Sita to a life in exile in a forest without any suitable justification for doing so.

“The Devi was exiled (given ‘vanvasa’) for no fault of hers. It was a hypocritical order from king Rama. How can a man become so cruel to his wife that he sends her off to live in a forest?” Singh says in the complaint.

Singh cited this as an instance of a non-cognisable offence committed by Rama towards his wife, who was later found innocent of charges for which she was sought to be punished.

Singh said that Rama did this even after Sita had sworn an oath in front of the sacred fire to live with her husband till death.

“Lord Rama did not think for a single moment how a woman could live alone amid wild animals, including reptiles and mammals, in the forest,” said Singh.

The CJM agreed to take up the matter for hearing on the point on February 1. The complainant claimed his intention was not to hurt anybody’s religious sentiment.
