A local court in Bihar on Monday quashed a complaint filed by a practising lawyer against Lord Rama to seek justice for Devi (goddess) Sita.
The court of chief judicial magistrate (CJM) Ram Bihari ruled that the petition was not maintainable and useless.
Complainant Thakur Chandan Kumar Singh had on Saturday sought court’s intervention for lodging of case against Lord Rama and his brother Laxmana, alleging that they had banished Devi (goddess) Sita to a life in exile in a forest without any suitable justification for doing so.
Court sources said the CJM found that the matter was “beyond logic and facts”.
“The court observed that the matter was far from logic and not maintainable for initiating a case. Even no evidence was produced by the complainant before the bench,” the sources said.
Meanwhile, three separate complaint cases were registered in the court of the CJM against Singh for his “defamatory act”. All the three complainants alleged that Kumar had tried to tarnish the image of Lord Rama.
“It also hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus,” the complainants said in their application submitted to the court. The CJM transferred the matter to another court after admitting cases against Singh under various sections of the IPC.
